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.

Had an interview at Boots last year
Nothing fancy - just some summer work on the tills to earn some cash. The interviewer was the ice queen from hell. She literally had a *wad* of papers full of questions to ask me, which included about 20 which were like: 'Give me an example of when you've used your initiative'. After about 5 you I find that you've used up all the nice things you've ever done in your life, and so you start staring into space and saying um a lot. I started making them up, and for each and every made up answer I gave, she asked me to be more specific.

Needless to say I didn't get the job.
