Job Interviews: 98% bullshit

I went to La Morentia for lunch last week and a woman at the table behind me was conducting a job interview.

You would not believe the bullshit coming out of their mouths!

The thing that surprised me most wasn’t the ridiculousness of the conversation, but that it seemed so obvious that the interview questions weren’t going to get the woman the information she needed to make a decision about hiring the guy.

“Tell me about a time when you faced conflict at work and how you handled it.”

Complete garbage! Every interviewer asks that canned question and every interviewee has an equally canned response.

I wonder if this does not bode well for me the next time I have to interview for a job? If someone starts asking me canned questions, I’m sure I’ll have to call them out.
