You forgot a very important factor. Look closely at what the job description and interviewer disclose - particularly what the interviewer discloses upon questioning. If the job environment is toxic, this probably will be your only clue:
Vague generalities instead of specifics? Run!
Conflicting statements? Get them clarified at once, and if no clarification, run!
Omissions of data? Get the missing data supplied at once; run if severe.
Added inapplicable data? One strike for each unless obviously accidental. Three strikes and the company is out.
Altered importances? Again one strike for each unless obviously accidental.
Altered time sequence or time dropped out altogether? Again a bad sign.
Altered time sequence
