Job Interviews

You know, I don't mind interviews at all. Ask me questions. Grill me about something on my resume. But please don't spend 17 minutes telling me about either 1) your niece or 2) the business' reputation as you see it.

It just tells me that 1) you're not interested in me at all and 2) you don't care at all that I know this.

It's kind of rude.

Was it exactly 17 minutes? How do you know this? Were you keeping track of time instead of actively participating in the interview?

This was all a test.

It's hard to judge just based on that, but sometimes at smaller companies they're trying to see if you're someone they can get along with every day for 8 hours. They could have several people with similar qualifications and they want to see which one they would rather see 5 days a week.

You wouldn't believe the first interview for the job that I've now held for 20 years. I suffered through it and the subsequent interviews went much better. The first interview was an HR doofus that didn't have a clue about the position. One of his questions was, "Can you lift 50 lbs.?"

Ummm, yes I can, but this is an engineering position. Am I going to be hauling copy paper around? (I didn't say that, just thought it.)

A guy I use to work with was about the most unprofessional ****er when it came to interviews. I was trying to move to a position under him and he sat and read emails the entire time he was interviewing me. I thought maybe he just had no interest in hiring me so he was just being a douche.

A guy I work with now says he interviewed with him and he sat and ate a sandwich throught the entire interview. He said he was about to get up and tell him to shove it up his ass.

From what I understand he was a complete douch to work for. I believe they ended up firing him.

This is very true. Depending on the type of company/work you're doing, nowadays employers seem very focused on having good "team players" from a personality perspective.

I had an interview where the interviewer talked the entire 30 minutes and didn't give me a chance to say a thing. When the interview ended, I said thank you and left thinking the worst. Got a call a few days later saying he really liked me and wanted to make an offer. Sometimes if they don't ask too much on point, it can be a good sign.

This. Interviewer didn't know how to interview... and probably doesn't know much else concerning his job. I'd take it as a sign to say thanks but no thanks.
