Things you've said at job interviews.... - Page 2 - GF - General Forum - The Liverpool Way Jump to content

Welcome to the new and improved TLW!

 

Some of you may experience issues logging in and will get an 'incorrect password' error. Don't worry, you haven't typed it in wrong and your password hasn't been changed. You will need to reset it though in order to log in. Click the reset password link and you will receive an email with your new temporary password. Once logged in, you need to choose a new password (or restore to your old one) otherwise you will be locked out again.

 

If you have an out of date email address linked to your account, then you won't receive the new password. If that's the case then you'll need to email me (dave @liverpoolway.co.uk) or send me a tweet @theliverpoolway and I'll update your password manually. 

 

Any other problems or questions just let me know.

 

Thanks

Dave

Had an interview a month ago, both those questions came up.

 

The colleague one completely confused me. Genuinely didn't really have a response other than "If I could mind-read..."

Do you reckon the 2nd one should be answered with how you could have done it better or you could get away with I could have just fucked it off but I made the effort because I'm a fucking hero type answer? 

 

Just answer with "Now is a perfect example, I could call you a complete jobsworth cunt who doesn't know how to interview but instead I'll play along and call you a cunt later because I'm a fucking hero."

I tend to find not having much competition to be a good thing. That or not leaving my job. Been in the same job since 2003 and so long as they keep paying me I doubt I'll leave. Couldn't care about ambition etc. 

 

The candidates when I went for the job

Me

African with terrible English 

The other guy never turned up. 

 

Luckily the site manager had told out bosses they wanted some younger security as it was nearly all miserable old fuckers, otherwise I would likely have lost out to the non English speaking African.

At interview for my current job I was asked;

 

Are you a member of a website that could cause embarrassment to the organisation? 

 

I of course lied like fuck.

Along with everyone else responsible for the recruitment agency and HR related bullshit that exists now.

 

Them and all of the estate agents.

 

Also, what is your biggest weakness is the shittest question ever asked and highlights an interviewer who hasn't got a fucking clue. From the same shit interviewer playbook as why do you want this job?

My biggest weakness is me pushing the boundaries of my in work danger wanks.

I just said they would say  I was hard working, dedicated, methodical, a bit cheeky and depending on which member of staff either a good or terrible sense of humour.

As has been said, "what is your biggest weakness?" is the biggest sack of shit interview question out there. As if anyone will be truthful in answering that.

 

"I'm too good at work and colleagues get jealous of me". "My business attire is so nice I get all the women in the office wet and distracted". "I'm so easy going I let guys on my work team sleep with my wife, which affects my personal life".

Turned up straight from a night out, honking, bleeding and coughing like I had tuberculosis.

 

Asked me what attracted me to getting back into banking and I said I was looking to get straight back out of it again, ideally.

 

Asked me where I saw myself in a year and I said teaching English abroad.

 

Asked me where I saw myself

in 5 years and a torrent of unfiltered existential angst just poured out for about 3 or 4 minutes, until he finally gently put up his hand mid-sentence.

 

Got the job, but insisted on being moved to a different team paying hundreds less a week within one month, as the fat fucking mess training me only waddled in for the first time on my second week. He was little more than a succession of odd comedy voices and twitches, with his own private raincloud following him around the room.

 

In his opening gambit he told me he had IBS and I had no conception what it was like living with a chronic condition and should thank my lucky stars that was the case, then cracked open some wheat crunchies and a can of Red Bull for his breakfast. 

 

He came in the next day with a Travis Bickle mohican, had eyebrows all over his cheeks and later sold me some weed with his PlayStation controller still in hand and his 3 kids shouting at him from their sitting room.

 

Fair to say the role in question wasn’t graduate scheme material.

Had an interview this afternoon for a Clinical Ward Lead post. 

 

Was asked ‘where do you see yourself in 5 years’? 

 

Resisted saying, doing your job but doing it fucking competently. 

 

Find out tomorrow morning.

I hope they have cook there too or else they may regret giving you the job.
