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.

Frozen food
I interviewed someone about three years ago who were sent from the local job centre. They had taken the opportunity of doing their shopping first, and came into the office wrestling with four or five Morrisons bags. They sat down with the bags on their knee. As the interview went on, I could not help but notice something dribbling out of the bag and the candidate looking somewhat uncomfortable.

Cue me being a cunt.

There was not a cat in hell's chance of me offering her the job - but i made the interview last about 40 minutes. By this time her jeans were covered in what would appear to be ice cream.

As the interview came to a close, I asked, "Oh, is that ice cream running out of your bag?" Which gave the answer "Oh, yes, do you have a freezer I could put it in?"

I made my excuses and left.
