Post Reply Do you hate job interviews?
Posted 5/5/15
I had an interview once at this warehouse and it was horrible the manager kept asking what I do in my spare time.
Um nothing illegal if that's what you're wondering, I didn't get the job. So fuck him.

i detest them its such a drag

we all know everything that comes out of someones mouth is bogus. Were just kissing up to look good.

I hate Panel Interviews i passed all the ones ive done but i still hate them.

i especially hate those questionnaire ones where i have to constantly click. i sound so lazy but when it come to applications its so boring.

i have had a few fun ones but still im not such an outgoing person that i would love to talk so much and kiss up to one person just to get a job.

I don't mind dressing up or anything in part of getting a job, but the only thing I hate part of the job interview is being nervous for no reason.

The only part of job interviews I hate, is when they ask:

"Why do you want to work here?"

"What are you weaknesses/strengths?"

Lmao, I want to work here because I need to pay bills. K thanx!

Yep, coz they judge ppl based on some shitty paper lol :3 Then --if yarrr chosen-- you have to prove that you are of value. Well, it's all due to the lack of time, so I do not blame them but still ...

I know the boss is busy, but if it's a small office, let me go in, talk to him, ask him what he needs, and whether I'd fit. Had that for one one-person office, and it was the nicest interview I ever would have aced. (Somebody else got it, though.)
DON'T make me go through some minor-boss-level ritual about 100 Reasons Why You Don't Deserve This Job and eventually finding one.

I'm pretty much of a white tornado if you get me behind a computer and a desk, but I've had crippling issues every job search because I don't think I'm enough for any interviewer--I'm certainly not an attractive young Aryan executive-fodder cliche', for one thing.
But a friend said I had to keep faith in my abilities, and he also used to think every job interview was going to be like that Monty Python sketch:

Mostly when they ask you "name a time when you _____" and then it's like putting you on the spot. I wish you could just say "I'll work hard and I learn new things fast so train me and if you don't like me, bye." Plus the fact that I'm talking to someone I don't know at all and have to try to mold myself to get them to like me makes me nervous. I'm nice, smart, hardworking, and I'm not a criminal. I feel like minimum wage jobs are getting ridiculously picky.

Considering I've been to 7-10 interviews in the last month. Yeah I'm getting pretty sick of them at this point.

I want to be one of those people who work at a company for 5-10 years. One of the main reasons is because, I hate getting reacclimatized to a new environment. The other reason is because, I hate the interview process. Talk of salary, dressing up,telling someone why they should hire you, hearing I'll let you know next week and hearing back in a month,etc....

Do any of you guys hate job interviews?




Nope, all part of the job. I interviewed 6 new engineers (intern engineers) about 3 weeks ago. Very bright and ready to work. I wish I could hire all 6.... I need to find a good PLC programmer who knows power analysis (staff engineer). I'll hire one of the interns, and if they work out by next year, hire them into a full staff position.

As I've mentioned before in some other threads, I have had some terrible managers whether it be their leadership skills or their horrendous personnel and logistical management. I'm pretty decent at bullshitting my way through the dumb interview questions, but I think next time I will conduct an interview of my own after they start to pull out the contract and drug test papers to get a read on how efficient of an operation they are running.
