Because it's a shitty manual labor job that could be done just as well by a frittata or a trained chimpanzee and there's fuck nobody else that I see waiting out there for an interview. Do you really need me to give you a fucking reason beyond "I'm broke and willing to put up with your shit?"
>>25562633 This. That question had me mumbling dumb excuses each time until one day I stopped caring and answered straight into the fucker's eyes : "I was severly depressed and on the verge of suicide". Oh how it felt great to witness him blushing like a fucking tomato, not knowing what to say next. BITCH ! Had another interview a few days later with a very cool guy who's only questions were : do you want to work and when do you want to start ? Still on this job. Typing this from my office.
I'll never understand why interviews are the way they are. I guess they show that the candidate is willing to play ball and say all the "proper" things, but wouldn't it be better to use the opportunity to actually have them answer honestly and fucking learn about then?
What is your greatest weakness? >My greatest weakness is that I'm a perfectionist and work too hard! c:
Woooow, it's fucking nothing. Give me someone who's upfront and honest over some generic memorizing ass-kisser drone any day of the week.
>go for accounting job interview at big company >chat with interviewer for a few minutes first. >nice guy. we have a lot in common. >starts interview. go over my resume >he realizes I know my shit and have good background >looks at me and says "I hate to do this but I have these fucking questions HR makes me ask everyone" >prepared for the usual list >"tell you what... take these home, write out answers and send it back to me tomorrow so I can recommend you for the job" >hired two days later
>applied to be a fucking dishwasher >DISH. WASHER. >interviewer is an uptight middle aged indian woman >asks me a shit ton of questions about my past and personality >finally my education comes up >tell her i have a GED >she pauses, and says "so you're 19 and all you've done is get a GED?" >stand up, tell her to go fuck herself and spit on her face >run >been a neet for the last year
fuck jobs. If you have to have a fucking degree from oxford to wash dishes I'd rather just be homeless.
>>25562302 I'm extremely fucking lazy and the only reason I graduated uni was because of my father who pushed me everyday to wake up, study and other similar shit. If it wasn't for him I would have been a NEET
>>25562633 I spent my time gaining skills and being a part of some failed startup projects. Although I love building things from the ground up it was a good lesson to show me how sometimes you should go with a stabler option.
Or something along those lines. Seriously there's a plethora of decent "excuses" you can use.
