I recently met up with a guy I used to date and we're still friends. I thought he looked ill but he told me that he was fine. But that he had just finished a job interview and the person interviewing him was so cold and sarcastic - he felt like he was on trial in court rather than an interview for a job. Anyone else had such a horrible experience?
I did. During an interview I was asked in a very cold and sarcastic manner why I had a gap in my career and a simple explanation that I was taking care of my family was met with a blank stare and another such question. I felt angry and shattered, never got that job.
The first job I ever interviewed for was actually quiet smooth. I was 15 and it was a part time job working at a game store. Everything was fine until I went in for my first day at work. My mom dropped me off and walked me in (she's such a caring mother) and, after she left, the manager said, "Wow your mom is hot. I'd bone her good." He then spent the rest of the day "cleaning the window" and watching the teenage girls getting their ears pierced at the shop across the way.
So ... even good interviews are not a sign of good management.
And he never got laid anyway.
No problems on my end. All my interviewers have been very kind and helpful. I'm very lucky.

What not to do in a job interview

I'm pondering this question, as I've had several interviews lately and worked my way through the whole process. When we got to the end, I asked "how much?" Only to find out it's not enough money. I know times are hard, but crap....I just don't want to go to work somewhere if...

In this economy, it is difficult enough to obtain an interview date, let alone impress an interviewer sufficiently to gain the position. I remember, as a professional technical writer, finding myself interviewing for a data entry clerk position after 9/11 put 180,000 or so aerospace workers out of...
