exit interview

"Exit Interview" focuses on a day in the (after)life of a worker at DeathCorp, LLC., a corporation that exists to handle the bureaucracy of transferring souls from life to the afterlife. It's also a kind of purgatory for the souls who have chosen to work there rather than moving on; not much exists around here aside from the corporate office, the workers' apartments across the street, and the shabby Burger King and mediocre mall that provide the only entertainment.

Today is the protagonist's first observation of an exit interview -- a brief interview that humans have to go through on their way "out" into the afterlife, which sometimes includes the opportunity to join DeathCorp for a spell instead. The experience leads them to reflect on their own death, their own exit interview, and their decision to join DeathCorp rather than accepting the unknown of the afterlife.
