This is a question Absolute Power

Have you ever been put in a position of power? Did you become a rabid dictator, or did you completely arse it up and end up publicly humiliated? We demand you tell us your stories.

Thanks to The Supreme Crow for the suggestion

In my last job, I'd interview for temp staff for the annual BIG PROJECT our company worked on. They didn't have to be anything scintillating: merely being able to convey basic technical info over the phone without accidentally calling the customer a cunt was all that was needed.

However, my colleague Claire and I had a...well, a not-unique-at-all method of selecting candidates. It was a simple process; I got the final say on female candidates, she got the final say on male. We tried to keep the male/female split equal when hiring.

And thus, we guaranteed that for 6 weeks of the year, our office was filled with stunning young adonis' and plump-titted lovelies. The biggest challenge? Coming up with realistic sounding feedback for the uggos we rejected.

thats not very fair,
I'm sure you were probably known as "those minging bosses who keep sleazing on us", so that's retribution in itself I guess.

Always amusing to see people layering their own little fantasies onto a tale. :)

Isn't this just normal white-collar recruitment practise?

Yep, totally normal. We were by far the only ones doing it. However, we do claim the innovation of maintaining the male/female balance.
