Have You Ever Had A Crazy Job Interview?

koko temur dropped this gem on last week's Eloquent Eloquence:

God damn, make a comment diversion about job interviews so i could tell the story of getting a call from mossads' human recources department!

I hear and obey!

I can't top Moussad's HR department, and I can't talk about my current HR situation out of a highly-refined sense of self preservation, but let me see if I can think of something...

If you interview with a collection agency, part of the process includes mock collection calls. I was good at the reinactments, I was hired. I stayed for two loathsome summers during university.

During an interview for a summer job at an engineering firm, I asked them if they understood how Arts majors (which I was at the time) felt about engineers. Talk about transparent self-sabotage! I didn't get a call back on that one.

That's all I've got for job interviews. I generally interview well; mercifully, it's been a while.

I was told the following while conducting a job interview, "I don't want to be hated because of my personality." Only in my head did I reply, "What would you like to be hated for?" I deserve a cookie.
