This is a question Job Interviews

If it's not the "where do you see yourself in five years time" question, it's the trick questions they throw at you to make them feel superior. Tell us about your worst job interview and the most unsuited candidates you've seen. BTW: Please don't use the question board to send messages to each other. It makes the whole thing unreadable for everyone else.

Fresh out of university
I was looking for a break and wanted to get a job coding PHP (as that is what my interest was at the time and still is I guess).

Went for one or two interviews in London, they went ok but they didn’t feel that I had the industry experience that wanted.. Bah.. Apply for a job in Scotland, as I had no real ties moving was not a problem. I then spend a whole day driving up the Glasgow, stay in a crappy travel lodge and turn up for the interview. The place is like a fricking zoo not an office, they had a dog running around and a parrot sitting on a chair covered with shit in the middle of the office. The interview starts and things just don’t click with the people I was talking to.. It lasts just 30 minutes. I then spend the rest of the day driving home. I didn’t go for anymore interviews up North.
