Companies and their stupid interview questions...
...Jeez, I swear, some of these questions are impossible to answer
without sounding like a dork.
I had a pre-interview today (over the telephone). The guy asked
me if I thought it was important that I got along with my
coworkers. I don't know why, but I said "no." I told him that
I would prefer to get a long with them, but if they hate me,
there's really nothing I can do about it. I know, bad answer.
I should really read a book about how to do well in interviews.
Then he asked me what I valued. I said "nothing." I didn't know
what to say. It's a stupid freaking question. Sure, I could have
gone the gay route and said "I value my friends and family." But
that's not ethic.
And no, I don't mean "homosexual route".
Finally he asked me if there was anything I'd like him to know
about me before the interview ended. I told him that I'm really
bad at interviews. He laughed and said I wasn't the only one;
which seemed to indcate that he agreed with me on how I suck.
I'm terrible at oral-communication. I mean, I stutter, stammer. I
can't even talk. Hopefully that'll help me out. Maybe he didn't
understand some of my stupid answers. He said he had a few
more people to call, and that he'd let me know by the end of
the day tomorrow if I had "advanced" to the next round of
interviews (the on-site interview. Ooooh, aaaaah. :rolleyes: ).
I don't care. I don't want to be employed, anyway. Working's
I've been retired for the past 3 months, and I've loved every
minute of it. Granted, my savings acount is down to $622, and
I only eat about 3 times/week... But still, this pre-defined lifestyle
that everybody is forced to live sucks. Be Born. Go to School. Get
a Job. Work 50 years. Spend 95% of your life in the same 10 mile
radius. Get old. Die.
You know, I really thought that when I retired from my old job
with about $3000 in my savings account -- that'd be more than
enough to last me my entire life... I blame the government. Us
wealthy pay way too much in taxes.
I really hate interviews.
