Dumb Interviews

Candidate is asked, “Are you comfortable with multi-tasking, and give an example of how you are able to do more than one thing at a time.”

Candidate replies, “Even when I’m having sex with my girlfriend, I’m thinking about work and post-it notes that I want to leave at the office for my colleagues.”

EEEEEWWWWW.  Way too much inappropriate detail.

When still going through the opening pleasantries, a candidate volunteers, “I’m sorry that I had to wear these socks that have blood stains on them but they were the only clean ones I could find.”

We didn’t dare ask how he came to have bloodstained socks and assumed that if he couldn’t plan ahead for clothes for an interview, he probably couldn’t plan very well at all.
