As a former 2nd, 3rd and SQF Auditor we always issued an itinerary and stuck with the program flow as best we found. There were a couple of times that I had to disengage employees and owners from gabbing, telling them if they continued to interrupt the process that they would be staying late and would have to buy me dinner. We never ran over time except for one gigantic failure of an audit that never seemed to end, and I so badly wanted it to be over with.
Tell the Auditor your closing policy and what you expect - everybody goes home on time and no, they spend the night and do more the next day.
