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.

Oh let's have a monster round-up
One place I used to work had an idiot postman pat clone working there and someone managed to nick a copy of his CV. Best line was "I am a keen DIY enthusiast and have found many ways to reduce the value of my house".

Not long after getting this job, I had to do this lunchtime buffet thing where the next wave of graduates got to meet the Real People who actually worked there. I was more interested in the food and looking out of the window at the pleasant view over the channel when I became aware of one of the graddies asking me something. "Yeah, sure" I replied, having no idea what he'd said. The guy looked really shocked, but rather than admit I'd been ignoring him I just brassed it out. Never saw him again which was probably just as well for him.

Went for a contract at BAE and the interviewer introduced me to the team. I shook one bloke's hand and it made the loudest CRACK! I've ever heard. People on the other side of the office were looking over to see what it was to see the guy shaking his hand and going "Ow ow ow!" and me standing there looking like a twat. Got the job though.
