When you are offered an interview by phone or Skype, are you suppose to be the one who calls the job or does the job call you?

This may seem silly, however, I have never had a scheduled telephone interview. Normally, I would commute to the destination. Does this concept apply to interviews that don't require you to travel or is the job suppose to contact you? #interviews...
