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 went to sign on at New Deal
As I had done for the previous 10 months, when during my interview the New Deal bloke said he had got me a job interview.
I was very pleased and asked where and when, he replied, here and now. I was wearing a pair of un-ironed jeans, trainers, spunk-covered Pyjama top and scruffy jacket, topped with an unshaven chin and ratty cap. In the bag I thought.
I went into the interview with 8 other candidates all wearing suits, gel and smellies and began.
After the main form filling in, they handed round a yellow form with which to write down "Criminal Convictions".
Everyone else ticked "No" put the form down and sat back, whilst I spent 5-10 mins filling it in crouched over in shame.

I got the Job.
