Hiring employees

We are in the process of hiring probably 4-5 new employees in addition to 1-2 new supervisors. Let me say that I am so glad that I have no responsibilities when it comes to hiring them. By the way some act, or talk, you would think that we should feel lucky that we have them in for them to think about our position.

In the last two days, we have had:

- 1 came in dressed as if they just got out of bed. Literally wearing flannels, sweatshirt, and slippers.

- 1 saying as soon as the interview started: "Let me tell you MY availability. I won't work any Saturdays/Sundays/Mondays, but I want full time hours."

- When asked about previous employers, literally cursed their names and used vulgar language in reference to them. Going so far as to call one a "Sl*t A$$ Whore" to the person interviewing them.

In the past, we have had people bring their kids with them to interviews. What is wrong with people? Do they not understand that first impression for a potential employer is important?

Anyone else got any dumb people stories?

For God's sake man, what position are you hiring? Where do you get your recruits, Crack houses?

I just interviewed 14 people for a position I had and I was ULTRA impressed with the candidates that applied. The Universitites are turning out good folks from where I sit.

Two new hires in 2008 are doing very well.

Maybe it's their leader

We have had some very good applicants. I'm just talking about a small minority. But you would think that a little common sense would tell someone to dress appropriately, don't make demands when it's YOU that needs a job, and to not talk that negatively about past employers.

I have had similar stories...not showing up dressed like the ones you mentioned but the hour thing and dissing the previous emplouyer....those interviews lasted about 5 minutes. I told them right then and there they are not what I am looking for.

I've always been amazed at the people that get passed screening for an interview.

Common sense hasn't been taught in the education system for nearly 75 years... it's a rare attribute these days...

After those three interviews my next conversation would be with my HR hiring recruiter.

On the opposite side of the spectrum, I remember an interview I had where the interviewer made some crack about me being over-dressed (black pants, white dress shirt, tie).

My reply was "yea, sorry about taking this opportunity too seriously".

The million dollar question, where do you work, or what field do you work in?

No shit. We are a smaller company (30+ employees). We don't require suit & tie type attire, simply a nice pair of jeans & appropriate shirt type attire. Dress for the position that you want.

I knew it would be asked eventually....so, yes, I know the field has something to do with it, but it shouldn't matter if you are looking for work. So...a little about our business.

My wife & I own an inbound only call center - no telemarketing. We have over 600 customers nationwide and answer roughly 75,000 calls per month.
