    Mine is a little different to you guys this was for a job as a fresh graduate in Southampton University but you need a little technical information first the common battery is called a nicad so I was chatting to the interviewer and it seemed to be going quite well and he asked me the benefit's of lithium over nicad so ( I should mention I was a bit nervous which is why I did this) I started rabbiting on about how nicad which have been around since before I was born were quite new and may be hard to find etc etc.. needless to day I didn't get the job but it went very well apart from that

    I went for an interview at a nursery.
    Got a letter through the post the next morning saying i hadnt been successful.
    It came through the post that quick, they must have gone to post the letter as soon as id left the interview.

    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.
    THIS is funny haha soz

    Went for my first job interview at a local pub at age 18 (late to the party, I know). Went on a whim from the JobCentre after my useless "advisor" enthusiastically encouraged me after seeing the ad. I had no experience of interview technique or the job world, no skills to draw on, no social skills or confidence, nothing to impress the interviews. Needless to say it was a complete car crash and I was blown off with a 'we'll let you know'. The manager's words were dripping with insincerity.

    I had the last laugh when I spent the following summer making cash for their main rival. Yeah!

    Struggling getting that dream job because of the psychometric testing ?
    let me help you, I give a guarantee that you pass your online test if it be a graduate scheme or an school leavers programme. I have done this for many years and have completed tests for top firms from investment banking, consultancy, accountancy firms, PWC KPMG, and many many more. please let me know as I get booked quick.
    If I'm going to pay anyone to do tests for me, I'm going to pay somebody who can proof their own forum posts.
