Candidate leaves interview - right through a glass door

Views 2 Views    Comments 0 Comments    Share Share    Posted 01-08-2009  
All HR pros have seen job candidates do dumb things. But these interview bloopers are just unbelievable.

Staffing firm OfficeTeam recently asked recruiters and hiring managers about the strangest things they’ve seen interviewees do.

Our personal favorite was the guy who performed well in the interview — but on his way out, he walked right through a glass door, shattering it.

Some of the other highlights:

One candidate took a personal approach and repeatedly addressed the interviewer by first name — too bad it was the wrong one.
Another realized halfway through the interview he was applying for the wrong position. He unsuccessfully tried to convince the company he was right for that job, too.
One particularly dedicated candidate was told he didn’t get the job — and then showed up to work the next day.
