Many people will move up in a company if they work hard and succeed at their roles. The sense of ENTITLEMENT that IF you do work hard you will be rewarded with more than your arranged salary/role for working hard it raises more than one red flag.
1) You will leave if you don' t progress
2) Your motivation to succeed and work hard is not because that is the job you were hired for but that you expect an increase in responsibility and pay if you work hard
It's not AMBITION in any way. It's expectation and entitlement, just as the first question was.
Funny how they both came up from the same person, making him seem as if he expects more than he was hired for and would leave if he doesn't move up fast enough. I would hire him/you based on those answers, nor recommend to other employers.
