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.

I had applied at an ice cream place, Coldstones Creamery. (I think they're dotting the east coast of the states, but i really don't know.) Anyways, their little trademark, for those who've never heard of them, is that whenever someone puts a dollar or more in the tip jar, all the employees sing a song, but with the words reworked to deal with ice cream. So theres 30 or so random college kids in for this mass interview. And they ask us to showcase some kind skill or talent, in 3-10 seconds. People are singing and dancing and such, neither of which I can do.

So I pulled out the Vanilla Ice jump-through-the-leg move, and then kicked myself in the head.
The owners father-in-law, who was sitting in for one of the store managers, asked me to do it again. And then asked how I figured out I could do that.

I didn't get the job...
(apologies for length)
