I have a job possibility that pays a decent salary. I got called in for an interview last week, went to the interview and I thought I did very well. I was called yesterday for a second interview today with a district manager. I thought the interview went very well and am confident I will get called in for a third interview with another manager. I am wondering what to expect for a third interview? All these interviews are just giving me anxiety. Is it too early to start celebrating if I get called in for a third interview?

Celebrate a bit - you've made it this far. But obviously, It's not an offer yet. I will say, it is rare to have more than 3 interviews before a decision is made. 

As for what to expect - there is too much variety to begin to speculate. Sometimes it's just a last meet and greet with others in a department. Sometimes its a specific clarification or conversation. Sometimes its an offer. 

You never know. 

*thumbsup* I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

I may be showing a serious lack of business acumen, but I'm not used to seeing places need THREE interviews to make a hiring decision---that sounds seriously over-done.  Perhaps it goes with the territory of the field you're in.  Without knowing any more than this, I'd tend to think that if they're having a third interview, it's just to get someone to rubber-stamp what they've already decided.

It has become pretty standard practice (in my business at least) and by no means a sure thing. But by this point, the field is usually down to just 2 or 3 individuals.

In my company, we only do a third interview if we are trying to get a good read on the cultural fit rather than still evaluating the capabilities. I agree that you must be in the top few candidates at this point and you should be proud of that. A lot of people submitted resumes and didn't even get one interview. Whether you get this job or not, you are better prepared for the next interview as a result of this experience.
