1. Was in a panel interview once for an assitant manager’s position, and was told by one of the managers, during the interview, that my background and experience made him afraid for his job. I quickly repsonded that he should not be afraid, I am a team player and would be willing to train him to the level I was. Well, I guess that offended them because I was not hired.
2. Was asked once at another panel interview, “So, you have children. Will you be bringing them to work on snow days, or do you have other options for daycare?” Before I could say anything at all, the same woman said, “We are actually looking for someone without children or someone who can work any hours”. No, even though I was more qualified, a single young male received the job.
What a crazy world this is!!! LOL
