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 for the "video mobile" company for the job as sales pleb in Cambridge a year or so back, for which I had to drive to Newmarket to be met by some humpa lumpa b.o. secreting bint who came up with (I think) her own interview questions (which were so stupidly simple I've forgotten them) and then at the end of the interview proceeded to offer me the job. Great I thought, beats stacking shelves in tescos.....

Then she pipes up and says "Its quite a long way to drive each day, are you sure thats ok..."

Me: "Yes, It's only about 10 miles.."

transpires the silly watermeloning biaatch had "forgotten" to tell me that there were actually no jobs in Cambridge, and that she had in effect hired me to work in Bury StEdmunds, at least a 2 hour drive in the morning.

A week later, I still had people from their "recruitment" centre phoning and trying to pursuade me to accept the job.
I think they got the message when in the SU bar they phoned and in my absence a friend answered the phone....
They stopped calling after he told the person he was going to hide with a sniper rifle and pick them off one by one as they left work...
(It was around the same time when the psyco guy hid in his car and shot random people in the US!)
