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.

Yorkshire retard
(BTW I'm from Yorkshire too so it's not a sweeping generalisation.)

This wasn't a trick question and I was the interviewer not interviewee, please forgive me for not following the rules on this QOTW...

I was interviewing someone in early 1999 and started the interview off with a history of the company and the current IT projects, including that we had just completed a 2-man/five month conversion of our entire in-house IT system ready for 4 digit years in order to handle the change from 99 to 2000.

The interview went pretty badly and he was a no hoper but the crunch came when I asked him if he had any questions...

(In broad Yorkshire accent)
"What you reckon of that millennium thing then? I reckon it's a big hoax like what all them viruses was in t'eighties."

Bugger me, what a waste of 10-man-months.
