Things NOT to do during interviews...
So, as I've been going through interviews over the past few weeks I've discovered a few "No-No's" I'd like to share with you.
#1 NEVER show up to an interview wearing a t-shirt that reads:
"Better than sex...Tex-Mex"
Ahem...no, I'm not joking!
#2 Never eat a sour mint right before you interview. Your mouth will be watering and you will inevitably be spitting upon the interviewer...they don't like that.
#3 Never sit in the lobby chomping down the last of your Egg McMuffin before you go in for an interview...unless of course you are interviewing for the same job I am. In that case, go right ahead.
#4When asked the question: Do you have any convictions for felonies or manslaughter don't laugh and say...."well, no convictions, but there were a few I've dated I would've liked to kill."
#5 When asked "why" you want to go into food service try not to snort. They frown upon that. But really...who WANTS to go into food service?! Unless they are a classically trained chef who works in a reataurant...not a hospital!!!
#6 Never refuse to leave the office until they hire you...they WILL call the police.
No, I didn't do all of those, but there are a couple I may fess up to in the years to come. We shall see!
