Learn English – Ordering prepositional phrases


I have rewritten a sentence like the one below several times, and I could not seem to put the prepositional phrases in an order that sounded correct to me. Is there a better way to construct this particular sentence? Are there any solid rules for ordering several prepositional phrases?

I have an interview on Friday with Joe Smith at ACME Inc for an Editor
II position.

The word order in the English language is: Subject-Verb-Objects-Manner-Place-Time + first most detailed, then more general information.

Therefore, this is how I would phrase it:
