This is a question Job Interview Disasters

The boss showed me the shop floor, complete with loose floor tiles, out-of-date equipment and prospective colleagues eyeing me like a raw steak. "Christ, what a craphole", I said. I think that's the moment I blew it. Tell us how you didn't get the job.

I was once working as a temp in a pharmaceuticals factory, and had applied for a permanent position.
During the interview I was asked if I was a 'team player', and what teams did I think I represented within the company as a whole.

'Well' says I, 'This site is compared with the other sites, so I want it to do well, and on site I guess I represent the Tablet side of production over the inhaler side. Within Tablets I guess I represent the shift I work on.'

'So you think that the shifts compete against each other, and don't work together.'

'No, it's not that. We all work together, It's just that the Night Shift are lazy cunts.'

Nailed it.
