"I believe I may have inadvertently allowed a small snake to escape during our interview. There is no known anti-venom or treatment for its bite. Have a lovely day."

Interviewers that have spent two week browsing thru some psychology sites are the worst..

These questions are all from high paying jobs, not the lowlife janitorial or selling burgers jobs... Gerry is right, that hypocrisy is awful, both sides pretend like it's your lifelong dream to shovel crap and theirs to provide that crap to you. If i get so far that i'm interviewed, chances are very high that i land that job, i excel in those situations. Hmm, come to think of it, i do ask questions a lot. They often give out these clever loaded questions that they think are clever but actually are vague at best and the answer is something like "apple".. i hate those and try not to answer the question but find the reasoning behind it, why is that question there... Or i just lie well ;)

Frankly, I think most people interviewing would find these questions impertinent and it could reflect badly.

A job is just a job, this level of bullpoo just serves to keep people thinking what they do is the balls when in fact it's all just a means to an end.

Human Resources is the boil on the butt of humanity. Their sole job is to complicate a simple thing. Match people to jobs they are qualified for. But HR want's "People passionate about the Janitorial Industry".... as if anyone ever was?!

HR sucks out loud

HR
"Where do you see yourself in 5 years?"

Me
"Winning the lottery and laughing at your sorry wage-slave ass"

I'm with Gerry on this, ask these questions to HR and other peripheral people., HR likes to make the entire thing into a big production. I can't stand dorks that ask questions like this when I'm interviewing.

@ CaptKangaroo - yes you are right. It's nice to like where you work and the people you work with. But when HR asks "Where do you see yourself in 5 years" does nothing to predict how happy you will be.

Bottom line, CaptKangaroo, no matter how much you like working there, if they don't pay you you're gone. You, like me, are a whore who is only interested in the paycheck. It's nice if the John is cute, but we can do ugly if we have to.

Gerry said it best. Quit overthinking poo. Most people apply to most companies because they need a f#@k!ng income.

CaptKangaroo - that is also true. The difference is that you really can't know that stuff BEFORE the interview. You have know way of knowing whether or not you believe in the company's core message or agree with its management style if you're just some joe shmo applicant. It's something you kind of have to experience first-hand to know if it's an environment for you.

These are excellent questions, I wish I had these way back when.

But yeah Gerry's on point, I remember my first big time interview in the Financial District of NYC. I basically just wanted a job, but she was asking me, "Who am I? What have I done? Why am I important?" The thing is, I DID google her, I just knew that her sister had a DUI. Everything else was trivial.

And then she gave a speech about how she wants someone who believes in the company's stupid goal, not somebody who "just wants a job."

Not everyone can be an ambassador to Norway, most people just want jobs to have jobs.

@Gerry- not true.
When people like where they work, when they feel the owner/management really listens and works in their favor,when employees feel they actually make a difference within the company and for customers/consumers, they can be fiercely loyal to the company.
I see this attitude in most of my employees.
It's not the norm, I agree- but I don't believe I'm the only job provider getting it right.

Example of how HR overthinks everything. You need an accountant who gives a flying fig if he's seen your facebook page. If he's qualified to crunch numbers then give him the job. Stop expecting people to be in love your company...it' aint happening.

We're all just whore, we're only there for the money.
