Interview time again!

Last year, I posted this about our interview experiences at my workplace: http://www.humzoo.com/Ames/blog/10/

We're hiring again (as we do twice a year) and today we had an applicant swear multiple times during her interview, and at one point she said, "I actually don't want to work too hard."

What?!?!?!

That's almost as good as the interview we had last week:
Interviewer: "So, what would you be able to contribute to our company?"
(Long pause)
Applicant: "Well, I have to think about what that word means."

Seriously?!?!?!


I thought in this economy people would really bring their A game to job interviews, but I'm finding that's not necessarily true.

Maybe they really don't want to work. Sad if true. Some folks would love the job, I'm sure.

Why would someone say that when they want a job? I don't understand that! Linda might be right that they don't really want to work. And the swearing is inexcusable. No way should they be hired with a potty mouth.

I don't see what the bleepin' problem is. If she doesn't want to work, she doesn't have to bleepin' work.

Just goes to show these people do not actually want a job, they just want to say they have been on an interview.

Exactly. My mother in law went for an interview on Monday only to find out that if she was hired she would make $5 more per week than she is getting on unemployment.

Absolutely! It's funny how many things on that site are crazy but ingenious at the same time :)

Haha, it cracks me up when people like them are so completely idiotic. And they wonder why they don't get jobs...
