To be hiring manager is really pushing for quick start, but i badly want to take a break, get some facial surgery, health check up done, meet my parents etc. I'm thinking of asking 3 months. Do you think this is fine?

      Right, high tc makes up for looks. However, even Elon musk and Donald trump got hair transplants, and tons of other people get surgery all the time.

      That's fine. To each their own. But I'm sure his nose is fine. Big nose == big d

      Plus, hair transplants are still their own hairs. Shaving down someone's jaw or nose isn't the same.

    Did you negotiate for the facial surgery as part of the offer?

    Because you want to ... lol You don’t need an excuse to push a start date.

    If they’re asking for one then they suck.

    Three months is excessive. Sounds more like you need time off from working.

    About your face ... yeah, don’t mention that part.

    I asked for a break and they agreed. Also used my paid vacation at existing place before moving.

    It helped me say what i wanted and it worked. However 3 months is too long.

    Are you in India? This is not applicable with desi companies sorry.

      Harigur should do it. Will have instant fame at new work place. Everyone will be talking about surgery even before joining. There will be a grand reception while joining to check how the surgery went well

    When I moved, I told my team had a re-org and my manager wants me to be there for couple of months.

    The recruiter was happy to move the start date after 3 months which was initially 1 week. I didn’t join there though.

    I dont know about 3 months but I pushed my start date at Amazon to 7 weeks because I had already booked a vacation with my wife (1st wedding anniversary). The HR had no problem moving my start date.

    If the hiring timeframe was discussed before you applied or interview then the manager will be annoyed
