don't assume too obviously that the owners don't have a clue what they're talking about. If some interviewer came in thinking they knew more about my business than I did, that would just pi$$ me right off and they wouldn't get either position, full-time nor contracted. **** I wouldn't even validate their parking.

They may have their reasons for needing full time. They may have some LOB application that requires constant upkeep but they make a ton of money so it's ok, or whatever their reason, consider the possibility that there may be a valid one. Or you may be right and they do only have basic needs and a full time (experienced) IT employee would be sitting around with his/her thumb up their butt 50% of the time.

If you're going in under the guise of a job interview, well an interview is an interview, you have 2 ears and one mouth so use them proportionately to avoid burning a bridge in front of you, and assess from there.
