"Just give me money and I'll do shit for you"

That's all you need to answer desu

This is all paraphrased because I don't remember the exchange exactly since it was quite a while ago. In my very first job interview ever, I was asked "How much money would someone have to take for you to consider it stealing" (it was for a loss prevention job). I told the interviewer to clarify because I didn't really get what he was asking. He said "you know, like pennies, dimes, how much would you let someone take before you consider it stealing?"
I told him any amount, even pennies.
He said okay and move on to the next question After that, they told me they really liked my interview even though I was nervous as fuck all the way through and I ended up getting hired despite having no work experience and the position wasn't entry level.
I think it was a trick question desu.

Oh god. Don't remind me. I had a job interview for a telecommunication company last month. It was my first job interview ever. I was trying really hard to make a good impression, to keep the spaghetti in my pockets to don't embarrass myself.
Was doing fairly good, almost at the end, when they asked me to name 3 things I'd like to improve on myself. Without thinking I immediately replied "My attention span". My eyes widened in horror as I realized I screwed up, I was being honest!!! That's the biggest no-no in a job interview!
Spaghetti was ready to spill out of my pockets but thankfully I managed to shut up and not mention that I have a terrible Attention Deficit, Hyperactivity Disorder, and it's totally untreated btw.

Then I said I wish my English was better (This job was strictly English speaking) then for third I said I wish I could play the flute. The last question was to pick a word that describes me well, which would make them choose me over other applicants. I was fucking panicking at this point so I just said "Calm" because in truth I don't give a fuck about anything, least of all their company or corporate shit.
Aaaand that's when the spaghetti spilled. Needless to say I was not hired. Fuck them.

So backstory, in the trades, there are fucking retarded local names for certain items, for example, I've come across about 10 different names for a pipe wrench and people act like you're fucking retarded when your like:

"What the fuck is that?"
"A Trojan Stillson, how do you not know what that is? Have you ever done this job before? are you retarded?"
"I've never heard of this in my life"

A Torjan Stillson is a local brandname for a pipewrench, instead of pipewrench and just saying "Oh a pipewrench" people in the trades look for any excuse to get up in any TA or Labourers face.

So anyone one job interview they asked me about my experience with something I can't remember what the fuck they called it but I was flawed? "A what?", "You know a *insert bullshit name*"

I was literally flawed, I had no idea what the fuck they were talking about and just stared at them for like a minute and the interview ended right after.

Turns out they were just talking about oxy acetylene welding or "Copper welding" but called it some bullshit name that they use in their company.

That was probably the most embarrassing interview I've ever had.

The question I hate the most in interviews is "Why do you wish to work with us?" for some bullshit entry level position. It's such a fucking wanky question that everyone knows is bullshit. I feel I never can get a good answer out of this because I never get interviews at places I'm actually interested in or qualified for.

What I hate the most about jobs though, when you are applying for jobs and every job has some fucking wanky PR name for the title that doesn't actually tell you anything about the job.

>Job - Qualitative Data Assistant Officer.

>We are looking for a Qualitative Data Assistant Officer to work for our Team.

Depends on the field but they just look at GPA and that is only if you don't have any other experience.
Quantity is more important than quality here. That is because most people work while going to school. I don't know how it is other places but I hear in nip land they usually focus solely on education.

It sucks for me because I have good grades but barely any experience. At the same time it seems somehwat fair because I know a lot of friends who work and struggle with school at the same time.

I interviewed for a grad role but wanted to move interstate. So I selected that I would be willing to move to any of their offices but my home town.

The interviewers didn't realise this, and conducted the entire interview as if I was going to be working with them. Then they casually finished up by confirming I would be happy to work in that office, which I told them no.

Go to watch them work through shock and confusion for a good five minutes as they tried to understand what was going on.

It's not that, but when you go for a job with actual Human Resources, HR tend to be fucking wanky as fuck to try justify their pointless existence, they'll give you a 2 hour interview in front of a 4 person panel, then if you pass you get a follow up 2 hour interview with another 4 person panel, they if you pass that they will spend a month working out which candidate they think suits them best.

The interviews also are filled with the most fucking bullshit questions as well.

>>What are your hobbies?
In my first job interview, I told them I liked to read about spaceships. Cringed even as it was coming out of my mouth, but it was a panic answer.

I've been on more than a hundred interviews, these are just most bizarre questions. General stupid questions are the same that I see in thread
>Tell something about yourself.
>How do you see yourself in 5 years?
>Name 3 positive and 3 negative traits of your personality.
>Why did you choose our company?
>Why we should choose you?
>Why did you leave every of your previous place of work (I had 18 for 6 years)
>What is your hobby?
>Will you continue to work if we will stop paying you?

I remeber only one stupid question from tech specialist, not HR manager, but it's asked on every fucking interview:
>What is the difference between a hub and a switch?
I usually ask "How many hubs are there in your office?" after reply and nobody have quality different from zero. Kind of oldfag test, I guess.

>I was fucking panicking at this point
>I don't give a fuck about anything, least of all their company or corporate shit.
sounds like you give at least one shit

Luckily for me, when I applied for a cleaning job all they did was tell me to come in the next day at 10.

>>54865789
is this particularly hard? i think it's easy unless i'm not understanding the question.

That you are a based antifeminist lad. People like you are not good for society. Even if the man is rich as hell, then should not beca restriction for women to work
>>
>>54868719
i'm not anti-feminist. women can go to work if they want. idc. i don't understand why anon had trouble answering that question? i genuinely don't get it.
>>
>>54867188
are you fucking serious? isn't it at least frown upon?
>>
>>54867808
In Germany they expect to see that on your application. You write down the pay you expect and you better exaggerate a little bit. If your expectations are reasonable, they'll invite you and try to haggle.
>>
>>54869507
Fuck you are a nation of social retards
>>
>>54869601
why? this seems very reasonable. no one wastes time. though i think that giving at least salary brackets in ad is the best solution.

'what would you say is your worst quality?'

>proceed to tell interviewer of my heavy drink and drug habits, inability to hold than any previous jobs for more than a week, my opinions on how the holocaust is an obvious hoax, and the time I punched out an 8 year old child who I believed was trying to remotely control my brain
>>
>>54858036
>What was the hardest job interview question you've ever been asked
"Are you planning on getting pregnant soon?"

I'm a guy that looks 0% feminine (although a little too skinny) and the question came from some uggo old woman, who, as I later learned, was trying to prove a point to her boss or some shit, that asking such questions is not OK at any point. Or whatever.

>how did you answer it?
I burst into manic laughter and left the room and the building. Only stopped laughing when I got on the street, because that would be awkward.
>>
>If you were offered a better job while employed here, would you take it?

I gotta tell you, that's a loaded question.

always have separate phone for work and social, when I'm not at work I turn my work phone off.
few months back they were short on staff at my work and were trying to ring me and of course my phone was off. went in work the next day and the boss was like "where were you, I was trying to call you but no answer, I even searched on facebook and everything for hours and couldn't find you anywhere" bit creepy

>short on staff but has the time to sit there fucking about on facebok for hours
>expects me to always be on call in case they need me at work

honestly, people are basically robots these days and as such get treated like robots
>>
>>54872386
Nigga, you took the work phone. It's like saying "I'm available!".
Also, what does your contract says?
>>
>>54872472
it's not a work phone, it's a separate phone I purchased so they don't have my personal number
>>
>>54872540
So your other personal number designated for work-contacts?
Smart. Did it work, though? Didn't get you fired or whatever?
And why two phones and not one with dual sims or whatever?
>>
>>54872683
>So your other personal number designated for work-contacts?
Yes, that exactly.
>>54872683
>Smart. Did it work, though? Didn't get you fired or whatever?
Yeah, of course, they didn't have a leg to stand on. It was my time off and it was a phone I purchased with my own money. I basically told my boss that outside of work hours I'm not answering my phone because I'm not getting paid to do so.
>>54872683
>And why two phones and not one with dual sims or whatever?
Easier and can have them both on at the same time (at work lel)
>>
>>54872810
>I basically told my boss that outside of work hours I'm not answering my phone because I'm not getting paid to do so.
This is the only proper answer as far as answering phone during free time is concerned. Good for you.
