r/Askreddit In today's episode we've got stories of people who endure some of the worst job interview experiences imaginable -- including some stories from yours truly, rSlash! I once got dragged around a strange town for a whole day, unpaid, while some guy tried to convince me to do a sales job after I expressly told the interview people that I do not want a sales job. Do you have any terrible interview stories?

    • Basically asking for $11 hr was the worst thing I could do in the interview. I was called for the interview the day I put in the application my preferred wage was $11-12 hr. And when it was brought up i mentioned that he rudely said well the wage is $10 if that's not enough for me I was wasting his time. Basically interview ended there and he said to call if I wanted the Job, did not call. A few side notes the website did not have a wage posted on their application site and the hiring manager for the department was rude pretty much the whole interview.

    • During the interview, i had bad gas. The silent but violent kind. They said i did great and most likely had the job. I would hear back in a week. Then they ghosted me.

    • My son and my ex-husband have the same name except one is Jr. and the other is the 3rd. This happened to my son, so my son applied to a temp agency. A few weeks later they contacted him about a potential job, gave him all the information and he was excited about it because he would be learning a lot of new skills. Well the day before he was supposed to start the new job the temp agency EMAILS him to let him know that they had had a “little” mistake and that unknowingly his father was employed by the agency as well, and that they had meant to offer the job to his father but had contacted my son by mistake. And even though they had everything all lined up for him to start the next day, they were taking him off the job because his father (with HORRIBLE work history) had more time in the trade. Also they would keep their eyes open for a similar job for my son lol. They contacted him a month later and gave him the exact same job because his father was no longer an employee there. ( They didn’t tell him that his father did)

  • I had a very wierd experience once where I was applying for an office type job, went in for the interview and there was hardly any information about the post. I was asking questions about what type of work I would do etc, but it was always answered in a very round about way. Eventually the manager said I was hired and I was like brilliant! I need a job and the money. So when do I start, he says right now if you want. I thought well its 10am so why not. He leads me into a large open plan office space and theres people everywhere, almost shoulder to shoulder. And the big red flag was THEY ALL HAD HEADSETS! I thought why do we need headsets in an office environment?!?! Then I got sat with the trainers. They were showing me all the programs and buttons on the computer and what they did. The job was to sell kitchen installations. I stood up and walked over to the interviewing manager who only managed about 20 paces from me, I said to him, you said nothing about selling shit, I was here on the premise of working in an office, I.E admin work! I dont want this job. He starts saying how I already accepted the post. I told him, I dont care as it was accepted under a lie! Shove this job right up your A$$.

  • i once had an interview at this small tax firm. the owner was nice enough however part of the interview was to take a brain teaser "test" right there???? a bunch of optical illusions (which line is longer, which O is bigger, stuff like that) and then he said he would send a link to my email address to take take another similar test online on my own time and once they had the results i'd get the answer if the job was mine. anyway, i was confused but i took the tests regardless. i didn't hear back for something like four months and by that time i had already found another job and he was like "after review of your tests we decided to go in a different direction" and i'm like homie????? it took you four months to grade those tests, i would have declined anyway. it was so random??? maybe he just never wanted to hire me so he gave me the run around with that????? no idea but it was weird

  • The worst interviews I have had that I can think of at that this moment. The kebab shop where I had to walk to the bus stop in a wind storm on what I later found out was a broken foot, only to be interviewed for like two seconds and told I wasn’t right for the job. The ice cream shop that told me from the get go that they weren’t hiring me because I was unemployed and they couldn’t be f*ed to train me. The cafe I did a job trial at where the staff kept sabotaging my work and the manager lied to my job agency about what I did wrong. The grunt lied and said I was waving a knife around dangerously. All I did with it was cut sandwiches in half. The cafe where they were interviewing because a current employee was looking for a job in a different industry and wasn’t sure if she had the job or not. The interview went great and the manager kept telling me “if (name) leaves you got the job here”. He interviewed EVERYONE my job agency sent him and from what I gathered told a few of them the same thing. As you can tell I didn’t get the job. The cake shop where I “got the job” but I had to do a weeks unpaid training. The training consisted of two weeks of full day work and the only training I did was in the first couple of hours in the morning. I caught on pretty quick that they weren’t actually interested in hiring me. Also one of the managers washed her feet in the dish washing sink. I understand that washing of the feet is an important part of Muslim praying but using that sink was unhygienic and against health code rules. In Australia OHNS rules state that staff can’t wash their hands in the same sink as the dishes, so you can see why her sweaty feet are a giant issue.

    • Then their was the horrible interview where I got the job. It was raining and I had just finished a job trial at another place. I got to the bus stop to take me to the second place. I was wearing a raincoat but somehow the front of my blouse got wet and my sleeve got stained with blue paint that dropped off the bus stop. I got to the venue and tried to dry off and clean myself off as best as I could. All I could say was thank god I didn’t wear makeup. The day they sent out a mass text telling people they got the jobs, they called me first to check up on me due to how disheveled I was in the interview.

    • Then there was this one cafe where I applied for the barista position. The interviewer took one look at me and started trying to interview me for a back of house position. I am a thicker girl while all the girls who work front of house were all skinny or athletic. Every time I tried to say I was better with the coffee machine she would ignore me and continue interviewing me for back of house

  • I've had some serious sleep issues and about two hours of sleep in four days before i went to an interview (for an administration job). Four interviewers introduce themselves and begin asking questions, which I answer to the best of my abilities, when one of them asks me for his name. After I found out through trial and error that he is neither the mayor (which wasn't even present) nor Bob something or [name of his female secretary?] I called it a day and thank them for their time.

  • Oooft I had one recently. Applied for an advertised administrative role, which was actually policy writing. I applied online for the role, and within an hour, I was called and asked to come in five hours later (this job was right down the road from where I live so ehh, sure). So I do my interview prep, try to research the company (🚩no website in 2021 🙄🚩), etc.. Interview time arrives, I’m there a few minutes early and this woman sits me down and asks me to fill in an eight page application (🚩which had seven illegal questions in it🚩), this application took 20 minutes to fill out, got to wonder why it wasn’t sent to me beforehand but whatevs. After that’s done, interview starts. This woman is nowhere near prepared. She had no questions prepared (🚩), flipping between pages, rereading my resume over and over again, going back over things that she’s already said. At this point I was like “this is dodge but you need a job so stick in there”. Then, she asks if I wrote my cover letter, and I had, she was confused and couldn’t believe it “what program did you use? Did you get help? How long did it take you to write? Did you copy it from the internet?”(! 🚩!)I was fuming at this point. Then, she explains the role “so as a logistics company, we have to maintain work health and safety standards which need to be updated frequently so it’s legally acceptable but also understandable for staff, so you’ll be writing policies” (🚩) EXCUSE ME, WHAT. Policy writing in my country is paid about $50/hour and generally fulfilled by a lawyer or paralegal, cause it’s legal shit. They were offering $25/hr, and advertising it as admin. She then pretty much told me I wasn’t successful, and if I hadn’t heard by the end of the month, I definitely wasn’t. I noped out of there so quick. Later on they had the audacity to tell me it was because I didn’t have enough administration experience 🙄

  • So guys just to elaborate on those "Marketing" jobs, door to door sales, etc. Half the stuff they do is basically illegal. We would do morning meeting every morning and basically practice our pitch to customers, UNPAID. We would be asked to come in to the office in business attire and then change into Verizon gear. Yeah we sold Verizon plans, at a Walmart. We'd be standing on our feet from 12 noon to sometimes 10pm but it was scheduled 7pm to be over AND We weren't paid for that. Overtime? Heck they would violate contract. They said I'd make either my hourly or commission depending on which is higher. No one wanted to buy our Verizon plans. So no commissions would come in. Maybe only 1 at most and we earned "100% of the initial sale" like 200$ monthly? We make 200$. Nah. They docced my commission for days I didn't make sales in. I dipped the day after the boss was explaining it to me. I was worn out. They told us they didn't recommend us taking lunch breaks and to just power through. Barely going to bathroom breaks. A man once screamed at me after I tried to pitch him "I'm not interested in you're religion terrorist fatty." (I'm chubby and Muslim wearing hijab and he was two times my size.) I was only 19. So I cried hard. My partner let me go to the bathroom and cry it out but called my boss who wasn't compassionate at all and said basically to toughen up. Walmart employees were the only people to stand up for me and one of them went after the man and asked him to leave. The Walmart employee another lady who saw that were the ones who escorted me to the bathroom. After leaving that horrible job, I attempted to contact Verizon and talk to Corporate about the MLMs they contacted. Said they'd give me a call back. Never did.

  • I went to interview for a managers position at a store and I was trying to leave the store I was working out due to how toxic it was. So I go into the store 10 mins early and the employee tells me the district manager is running late so I told them it's fine. I ended up waiting for 30 mins for him to arrive. I was annoyed but I use the time to observe the store and chat with the employees. During the interview I discovered that not only did he know my current boss but they use to work together. He had the nerve to ask me" how do you think your boss will feel about you interviewing for another company?" I told him that seeing she has been training me to improve my skills I would hope she would shake my hand and wish me luck. I did get the job and I work for them for a little over a year before I left for a better opportunity

  • Re the human rights law office at 12:16. I am not a lawyer, but most discussions I have seen/read of work in the "legal industry" involve debate over the meaning of laws and different opinions about precedence. The interviewers there may have been testing the candidate to see how they would handle vigorous debate. Now maybe they were insulting, and that would be a valid red flag that the environment was toxic, but since one person's insulting can be another person's passionate impersonal debate, we should consider the possibility that this candidate didn't have the temperament to participate in heated impersonal debate. It is possible that the interview team was looking for a candidate who would push back on their questions without losing their cool. We don't know what their CV looks like, but I doubt the candidate was brought in with zero knowledge of human rights law.

They flat out told me I was wrong and excused me instantly. I read some reviews later and realized they were terrible, and probably didnt care that the dogs would fight and the female would get pregnant. I'm glad I didn't get hired.

  • I had the same experience as u, rSlash. Got conned into shadowing a door to door salesman. What's worse is that I was alone with the guy. My saving grace is that I'm not pretty n I'm bulkier than his skinny frame, so he wouldnt have touched me 😜 On my real worse interview ever, I was suddenly found myself unable to remember all my terminology in my own field of study, rendering me unable to answer the questions the CEO was asking me. It was like a living nightmare. I wanted to bury myself into the ground. It was like my mind was blank n I just stared at her, stuttering. Just remembering this is like triggering a trauma for me. 😭 My second worse one was when the manager wanted to hire me, confirmed my appointment. N then, the HR ghosted me. The HR. When I called in, they told me that my requested salary was too high for the position even though I was prepared to take a pay cut n the manager and I both has agreed on an amount. In the end, I told them off for being unprofessional and for leading people on without even a courtesy call. I'm glad I'm not working there if they play politics to the extent of hindering their own managers from expanding.

Turns out the interviewers got a bonus if they roped someone in

  • I'll just put this out there, I was on rolling contracts with my state's education department, ie. The Department oversees public schools, but each school has some automity of employment. A clause is that School X can only employ Person A for four consecutive contracts or fifty-five weeks, whichever is shortest, before the next contract is automatically changed to permanent (tenured)... so I was at the end of contract four with School "K", I applied for a similar position with School "N", I interviewed well, I got a call to say I was "provisionally appointed" at 2pm, at 3.45pm I was called to be told that another candidate had disputed my appointment, they had been declared "in excess", had tenure and thus were deemed to have "priority status"... they won out, twelve months later I went through the same process again for School "C", with the same result. To answer the inevitable question, applicants apply through a Department web portal, from which when an appointment is made all other applicants are emailed a standard message to the words of "you have been unsuccessful in your application for position no. [###] - [Job title], the following has been provisionally appointed, [applicant's name], if you wish to dispute this appointment please contact the Merit and Equity Board within the next 7 days. Stating the position no. and perceived bias or reasoning" if you have tenure, you're able to screw over those seeking tenure, if you've been made "in excess" repeatedly without justifiable reasons, priority status should be revoked.

  • I've had two bad interviews that come to mind. One was for a prep cook at a small restaurant and the other was for customer service at a department store that rhymes with ears. Looking back i should have just left both. The first one I come in and the owner immediately chastises me for being an hour late. I was on time and when i tried to pull out my phone to show him the confirmation text he got pissed that i had my phone on me and it was unprofessional. After a brief back and forth he pulled out his phone to show the text i was going to show him and what do you know, i was on time. He then proceeded to give a very hostile interview before saying that i probably wasnt qualified for the job. The second i came in for an interview and sat waiting for over 2 hours before an employee got the manager to ask what the hell was going on. Apparently someone from corporate had come to the store and they had just forgot they were going to interview me. He said theyd call me back to reschedule. They called me back over a month later and i went in. They said they liked and would call for a second interview. Again over a month later i hear back from them. I was young and stupid and needed a job so i accepted but i got fired after a month because a policy that i was told in training was optional and my direct manager never mentioned the entire time, was actually mandatory (trying to sign people up for the store credit card).

  • So some years ago I applied to a fast food place. The interview was going great. The manager seemed to really like me and I was enthusiastic about the job. Then I got to the part about my disabilities. I have to disclose that I'm disabled because of liability laws. As soon as I mentioned that I'm disabled the manager suddenly became cold and disinterested. He ended the interview by saying that he had to go back to work and couldn't waste anymore time. As I walking out I saw him throw my application in the trash behind the counter. A friend of mind got a job at the same place a few months later and she discovered that the manager purposely doesn't hire disabled people because he is worried it will make the place look bad.

  • I had an interview for an advertisement job (my friend is in advertisement so I thought it would be like that). The job description wasn’t very detailed and in the interview they said they’ve worked with Google, Apple, Amazon etc. It sounded exciting and I was selected to go through to the final interview (a group interview). When I turned up, I was in a meeting room with the other interviewees. We were all excited to see what the job was and the salary and the guy spent a while talking about the business, team, and then asked if we had any questions. To be clear, he didn’t tell us what we’d be doing but hinted that we were all hired there and then (red flag!). Someone asked about wages and he said “I’m currently earning £5,000 a month and with hard work so can you!” So I asked what the job was and what he meant and he said “well, you’ll be on a set salary for the first month while you learn then after that you’ll be on commission...” I immediately got up and left as I told him multiple times in the first interview I was not interested in approaching people in the street and selling them stuff. Every single person in the group interview left...

  • I have a bad interview to share. So this was around the time I had graduated and was looking for job. I had sent application after application after application. Gotten answers from less than half of them that they didn't want me. One time I sent my resume and personal letter to this café and explained that I hadn't worked at the register but that I am a fast learner. I got answer the nex day that they wanted an interview! I was so exited to finally finding a place where they wanted me and where I could work. But this story wouldn't be here if it had a happy ending. I get to the intervew and the dude that's suppose to interview me didn't even know I was comming. We sit down and start talking. He asks if I had any experience with the register and I said no but I am a fast learner. I could fell the enrgy shift the moment I said that. The energy that said "You are NOT getting this job". But I continued talking even thou it all felt hopeless and eventually the guy said that they needed someone with experiance and that they didn't had time to teach someone the register. I F-ING WROTE IT IN MY LETTER THAT I DIDN'T HAD EXPERIENCE AND YET THEY WANTED AN INTERVIEW! Still pissed about this five years later.

  • I work in IT and had an interview that was suppose to be technical questions and the guy I sat down with was the lead developer and he didn't know anything. He asked me a question and he was sitting behind a computer googleing what he asked me to see if I was right. Worst interview I ever had.

  • First red flag i should have seen when applying to a local private owned pizza place in town, the managers both said we're all a family, we all work hard and play hard, all friends, work well together in both interviews. Worked there for three months, the place is nasty as hell in the kitchen (bugs, grease, food splatter, etc), creaky uneven floors, i had a better relationship with my coworkers and customers than the managers (which never stayed around long enough). Along with all that i basically picked up on a lot of the mess, i was always early or on time and stayed after my shift because we got swamped, i kept everyone updated on things, i triple checked tickets, asked questions, etc. But i got fired because it is either i sent out three burned pizzas in one day, or did it three different times (One i fixed and the customer was happy and offered to buy me a drink), and they fire me by giving me a long break up type of text message. The least they could do was take me to the side, talk to me, help fix the problem, but they didnt.

  • My worst interview is when interviewer asked me question and instead of listening she's looking elsewhere while making a duck face, and she only did that to me who is one of the four candidate in the room, I decided to just eff it and talk like a smartass.

  • I'm currently in kinda similar situation. Over the past couple of weeks I've applied for a lot of work places (18 years old, soon out of school and need money and a possible career, what else can I say?) While still waiting to get interviewed for some of the jobs, I've been able to do a couple of video interviews. Not through Meet, Zoom or Skype, but recording an answer with my facecam and send it. So while the interview couldn't be more neutral, the consept is bad, at least for me: I needed to take so many videos and some of them were quite long and because I couldn't read directly from a "script", I had to remember all that I wanted to say by heart. If I had even a slight pause in my memory, the whole video went to waste and I needed to start over

  • Nah I wouldn't have waited. Store one I would have lost my shit on him and told him to bring me back to my car or I'd call the damn police. Do not lie to me and then kidnap me for a job I told you I didn't want. Nope. I'd have lost my shit on them. You don't need to be polite and professional for people who won't do the same.

  • went to a job interview for PC Desktop support. I hit all the requirements perfectly. Turns out they wanted someone who could "Configure SQL queries and work data magic". That there was only one kind of ad for computer jobs and they were all for Desktop Support. I told them that was not what their I did and they continued to describe the job. Nothing in their description was about Desktop support. They looked crushed when I told them I was in no way interested in the job. I thanked them for the interview and wasting both of our times and suggested they work out the whole ad thing.

  • In the story where the guy said op wasn't qualified for that position after flying across the country, I'd totally go full Karen on him and get him fired. Suing would be better, but it's too much trouble, but letting him off doesn't make any sense considering how rude it was. Someone HAS to get fired for it.

  • Regarding law firm interview, I don't really see the problem. He wasn't supposed to win the debate, he was supposed to show how he can perform under pressure and when confronted with unexpected questions and situations. And he "turned into babbling mess". It's fine to show that you don't know the answers, but acting embarrassed isn't good for someone aiming to be a lawyer. They would've accepted him if he just kept his calm, even if he didn't win the debate.

  • So I was talking to a job coach about the volunteer jobs that *I* wanted, one of them being a comic book shop. It was within walking distance, they sold coffee and snacks and despite it being a small place, it was a great place with friendly and kind workers! The only thing about it is that they closed on ONE DAY, to which the job coach would say “Well they only close on ONE DAY!”. Yeah, and? What did she expect me to do? Work every day as a volunteer worker every friggin’ day? I have Asperger’s and Anxiety, meaning that o could only work for a couple hours, not all day! Luckily I got a different job coach and now work at the aquarium as a volunteer. Haven’t been there in almost a year due to the pandemic.

  • My worst interview was with a recruiting company. I had applied for a job at a bookstore that i had already been as an intern. It was supposed to be a group interview (which i absolutely hate right after filming video answers for questions), but i was the only one from my group to show up. The interview itself went pretty well. Some time after the interview i got a call and they said "we will inform you in couple of days when you have the interview with the store manager". I was excited. Couple days goes. Next week i call if they have any information. They say they'll inform me later. Next week i ask again and they say that i wasn't chosen for the store manager interviews. It was devastating. Thank god i was working as an intern at an animal shelter so I had a chance to go socialize with the cats and get some furbaby therapy. This happened in 2016. I am still having hard feelings with this recruiting company.

  • My worst "Job interview" included a half hour long pitch as to why they were not a pyramid scheme. Pro tip, if they have to explain why they are not a pyramid scheme, then they are a pyramid scheme. Don't get roped into that scammy crap. I cut contact with the "friend" who had roped me into that "job interview" in the first place. (I had typed this story out in more detail but then FIworld suddenly decided to refresh the page and I lost it. Don't want to type it all out again even though the story's more entertaining in the long version)

  • Jeez, I thought my most recent job interview was horrible, at least I wasn't kidnapped! It was a phone interview. It was pretty late in the evening, but okay, if that was okay with the interviewer, that's fine by me. I did give her the option for scheduling the interview for the next day instead if that was more convenient for her. Nope, she wants to get it over with. So, I get the call, and things start off pretty good. Except that it quickly became apparent that she didn't read my CV/resume, she didn't even know that it was two pages long, let alone what was on it. And, a couple minutes in, it also became apparent that she was in a hurry to get off the phone. She asked what I did in the time I was unemployed, and I did a lot of things, actually. I told her about, maybe one of the several things I did, and then she cut me off. She asked if I had any questions, and I was barely done asking my question (I had more, but okay), when she responded pretty concisely, and then said, 'well, if there are no other questions...' On the phone, it sounded like a 'I'm done with this interview'. She gave a very rehearsed spiel and the call ended. I think it goes without saying that I didn't get the job.
