Job application/interviewing horror stories
Do you have any funny or mortifying tales from a job interview? Did you interview someone for a job and they were really out there? Did you go on an interview and it turn out horrible?
At my previous job I interviewed potential employees. Most people were pleasant and interviewed reasonably well. One lady comes to mind though as "different". She came in, walked around the office, peeked her head into the bathroom and then asked if she could use the phone to prove to her boyfriend that she did, indeed come here for an interview.
She didn't get hired. There was more, but that was a big turn off.
I once went on an interview for a big toy company. It was a group interview and we were asked to go tot he sales floor and grab a toy that we might try to sell to someone. I went into panic mode, what the hell kind of interview is this? I picked a scooter and talked about the great price and different colors available. Another guy picked a football and talked about how it was a BALL. And kept saying things like "It's a great BALL! You can throw this BALL!" real sarcastic. Yeah, he didn't make it to round 2 interviews.
