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.

Random interview guff...
I worked in 'Media sales' for a bunch of outfits where you had to park your horse outside and leave your spurs at your desk. Anyway one outfit had gone bust, and we all left giving each other out addresses knowing full well we'd never meet again. Three of us got unlucky and were taken out at another 'media sales' company (to all managing directors/purchasing directors/marketing directors out there if I say supplier support to you and then apologise profusely on behalf of the whole fucking cowboy industry will I not go to hell any more?) anyway at home I received a letter informing me that I'd switched my gas and electricity to British Gas (or whoever...bear with me this is relevant) upon investigation it turns out that one of the people who I used to work with, yes Carl Raines I mean you,you shifty little fuck, had signed me up, without my knowledge by using the address I'd gievn upon leaving the previous company. Anyway this little twat then applies for a job at our place, talk about exageration on his CV, I sat down with the sales director ripped his CV to shreds, they still thought it'd be funny to have him in for an interview. The minute he walked through the office and saw me cheerily waving to him, his whole demanor changed as if he knew he wouldn't get this job. Apparently he went to pieces in the interview, and left, a broken man. I laughed my arse off, no-one shafts the Monkey..... there are other stories of colleagues who I drove towards full on mental collapse, but until thats posted as a question I shall leave that there.

At my current job, i have been to several job fairs extolling the virtues of where I work to all and sundry, one of the first people to stroll past our stand was someone who'd been sacked for fraud (I work in finance now and we're shit hot on catching people out)and then tyhe two local alkies came up swigging from cider bottles wanting to know what the work would be like, needless to say their names didn't get passed on, although the a large amount of attractive females numbers did end up on the contact pile....
