    As an "office Junior". I was 18, my second interview. I went there having read nothing on the job role, or the company.

    So the interviewer asks me, why I applied for this role and I reply that I'm not sure because I don't know the position...

    He then decides to take the piss and tells me that he is porn producer and asked if it was something I was open to... Embarrassed as I was, and young and stupi... I started blabbing about how I like porn and how I wouldn't mind being in a porno and such :rofl:

    Worst and best interview I've had :mmm:

    Been rejected from Asda. Slightly off topic - went to an interview (not the Asda one) and it was only when I left the interview room that I realised that all the buttons on my blouse had popped open and I was exposing my bra and the rest to all and sundry.

    Didn't get the job.
    :lol: This happened to me too. I left the interview and realised, I was so embarrassed. The company tried calling me a few times but I was so humiliated I just ignored them. Women's blouses should be designed better around the chest. :getmecoat:

    It's not realistic that for an office job a recruiter will get off the rail and will start joking around about porn What if you had a voice recorder

    Well not everyone loses their sense of humour when in the office I guess... :dontknow: And porn is a legit business, he wouldn't be breaking any rules, I was 18...

    The interviewer clearly thought his time was being wasted after the first question was answered with the equivalent of: 'Huh? I don't even know what job I'm applying for so that's kind of difficult to answer'.

    I also got rejected from McDonald's. I am not the best at interviews at the best of times, but I was geared up for a one on one interview and it turned out to be a group one and I went to pieces. I don't think I could hardly remember my own name... that was a bad interview.

    It was as a Sales Assistant in some independent woman's clothing shop. I went up the desk to ask to apply for the job. They looked at me. They said, "Uhhh... no."


    FINE
    I DIDN'T WANT THE JOB ANYWAY

    They are right. Every employer out there is basically begging you to work for them.

    My first ever interview was for lakelands and the interviewer just went on about how amazing the boy she had just interviewed was. :rolleyes: I never got it.

    Had about a billion others though.

    Usually they present themselves from where they are calling unless they didn't in your case
