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.

A story an old housemate of mine used to tell us...
He had been applying for jobs after leaving University, and unfortunatly mid job-hunt he was taken into hospital to have his appendix removed. During his recovery he was accepted for an interview for a famous large computing company. H.A.L., or something. Anyway he couldn't really turn down this opportunity so off he went to the interview, still slightly in pain from his recent op.
The interview was going well, but his smart clothes were causing his appendix scar to 'ache like buggery', so he promptly informed the interviewer that he 'had just had his appendix out and it was still causing him pain' and 'would they mind if he took off his trousers'.

Which he promptly did, and finished the interview in his boxers.

He tells us he was offered the job as well, but turned it down.
