Interviews with Idiots

These are true scenarios. Seriously. And these candidates wondered why they didn’t get hired. (And watch this funny video).

Oversexed
One candidate arrived wearing her blouse undone and a mini-skirt.

A candidate gave the recruiter her Facebook information where she’d posted nude photos of herself.
A candidate asked the recruiter if she’d go out with him if he wasn’t hired.
A candidate offered to have sex with the recruiter if he gave her the job.

Dress Code Problems
A candidate arrived for her interview wearing a bathrobe and slippers.
A candidate arrived for her interview wearing a bathing suit.
A man interviewed while dressed as a clown.
A man interviewing for a CEO position wore a tracksuit.

Rude Behaviour
A man clipped his fingernails during his interview.
A woman waited until the recruiter left the office then deliberately urinated on her chair.
A man accidentally wet himself.
A man ate a hamburger during his interview.
A candidate helped himself to a sandwich in the company cafeteria then ate it during his interview.
A woman answered her cell phone then asked the recruiter if she would leave her own office while she had a private conversation.
A candidate answered a question with “that’s the stupidest question I’ve ever heard.”
This was even ruder. And funnier.

A candidate admitted she had bipolar disorder but was stable most days.
A candidate admitted she had once attempted suicide.
A candidate slammed his hand down on the recruiter’s desk when asked why he should be hired and yelled “because I get the job done!”
A candidate admitted he lived in his parents’ basement because he couldn’t afford to pay rent.

A man informed the recruiter he couldn’t give him a permanent address because he lived in a gypsy camp at the airport (whatever that is).
