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.

My cousin was on an interview panel for a sales job with a character who liked to fire in questions to try and stump interviewees. All fairly standard.

At the end of one interview the bloke interrupted and said "what's the most embarrassing thing you can think of?"

The young victim flashed back:

"When I was 16 my dad came home to find me wearing my sister's clothes and admiring myself in the mirror. He went mental, bundled me into the car, drove me to the centre of town and made me walk home in drag"

This stumped the previously unflappable boss, who eventually stammered "Er...I was looking for a hypothetical example, but thanks for sharing".

He got the job...salesmen eh?
