    I know my interviewer is a dope when after 40 minutes of conversation
    he asks, "How do you rate your communication skills?"

    Responses I'd like to use but never did were:

    "You fkn moron.. What do you think? We've been talking all this time
    and you can't rate my communication skills?"

    "Better than the designers you hired with thick accents from Russia,
    China and India."

    "Let me guess. This is your last day."

    "Ahhhh errrrr yuuuuourr uffff ruff ruff."

    "Before I answer that, I should say my salary expectation just went
    up."

    "Did you read a dummies book on interviewing?"

    "I rate my communications skills an 8 out of dimwit!"

    "Can I get another interviewer?"

    "Let me talk to the designers. You're annoying me."

    Yup...I hate interviews.
    If HR wants to interview me, it'll have to be at front row seats at a
    racetrack.

  3. If you are so smart, how did it happen that you are getting hired rather
    then hiring by yourself?

    Huh? Can you express that another way.. The question doesn't make any
    sense...

    sense...[/QUOTE]

    It's functionally equivalant to, "If you're so rich, howcome you're not
    smart?"

    IOW, if you're so smart, why don't you already have the job, and be the
    one doing the interviewing?

    You're right, it doesn't make any sense. ;-)

    I once spend almost half a day on a job interview trying to write a
    prime number finder in C. I didn't get the job. The next day, at the bus
    stop, I wrote a sieve of Eratosthenes on the back of an envelope in about
    four lines.

    Cheers!

    Indeed. Some interviewers / HR managers are a complete joke. Like:
    ....the first 3 years you'll have a temporary contract (*).... ...we
    want our people to be devoted to our company.... ..how is your general
    health condition? (**)...

    (*) maximum allowed by law
    (**) illegal question

    I declined their job offer politely!
     
  7. As a general rule, the people who end up in HR are people who are no
    good for anything else. That's why they are so stupid. They need to
    justify their existence, so then end up inventing numerous corporate
    absurdities.

    Can't they clean the bathrooms, vacuum the floor, or do the
    landscaping instead? ;-)
     
  9. No, the wetbacks got all of those jobs.

    Cheers!

  10. I would be surprised if they could do such jobs.

    I've had illegal questions and didn't want the job.
    In which case, I have some fun and stun HR.. :)

    HR: "How is your general health?"

    Well....I masterbate 4 times a day to keep my prostate in good shape.
    I also give myself an enema daily around lunchtime for better bowel
    function.
    Then weekly I undergo leech therapy to get rid of bad blood.
    And ...I'm circumcised for reduced penis infections.

    Well ya never know... they might just give you the job anyway, if
    upper management realizes an illegal question was asked.

    Gee, if I were interviewing, apart from the mandatory basic math
    questions (I can't believe how many college graduates can't evaluate a
    triple integral), I'd ask, "So... tell me why I should hire you."

    "So... tell me why I should hire you."

    I've been accepted by your competition but with a $2000 cash bribe to
    their HR. I'll give you $2200.00 cash because I have a shorter commute
    from home.

    And my sister is really hot and single and can attend company
    parties.. (show picture).

  14. That's because there are only so many jobs for newscasters.

    Which is kinda silly since most states are at-will.
    Certainly.

    I have a head hunter calling me now that keeps telling me what a
    great company she's representing. She commented that I didn't seem
    to be excited about the job. Well, she hasn't told me anything
    useful about the job. What I have been told makes it worth more of a
    look but information would be good right about now.
    Nah, HR goes away after the new-hire orientation meeting.

    Sure, there is one just opening in HR. ;-)
    Exams are difficult to do. You'd better have a well documented
    standardized one or someone's going to sue you for discrimination.
    *That's* what the HR types are doing; insulating management from
    suits. Blame the lawyers, not management.
    That's a good question, if asked honestly (impossible for HR). My
    favorites were to ask about previous designs (or class projects) and
    let them explain what they've done. Be sure to ask questions but add
    nothing.
     
  17. True.

    You should ask to speak to their IT department before accepting the
    job.

    Me? I haven't even talked to an employee yet, mush less been offered
    a job. Why would I talk to the IT department? (I have some ideas,
    but I didn't think them universal)
