So I am at this place of business this evening, and I overhear someone trying to apply for a job.
Note, I feel bad for the guy who is looking for extra work, but the interview just is going all wrong.
– Easy-Smeasy – He asks “What is the easiest part of the job?” Ugh, didn’t sound exactly like he was looking for a challenge.
– Keep your head down – He exclaims, “And never do someone’s else’s job!” What about helping where the help is needed?
– Great facilities you got here – He ends with, “And when I work here, my kids are really going to love coming to use the facilities here all the time!” Not exactly, a what will I do for you strong ending.
I didn’t get to hear the whole interview dialogue, but this was enough to get the idea about some things not to do in an interview.
The funny/sad thing was, I think this gentleman really thought that he was going to get the job after all. 😉
