Usher in the new recruits
I’m terrified of this question cause honestly i’d be like ‘dude if I were you I wouldn’t’
@password123, I bs'd it a bit for my first interview. Basically told them things that they liked to hear and followed through during my probationary period. After that I started slacking off a bit and dicking around, but never enough to where I risked my hours getting cut or them firing me. Though to be fair, I actually liked my first job.
@Anonymous Jack III, My first proper job interview, they asked why I’d applied & why I wanted to work there (a global accountancy firm, seriously formal place). I gave an honest answer “I don’t know, I don’t remember applying, I think I was drunk at the time”.
They hired me.
Bad idea, as it turns out - hated the job and quit the entire industry within a year. Given what they spend on recruitment, training, and professional qualification exam fees, probably cost them a fair bit.
@Anonymous Jack III, that's literally what you're supposed to do in an interview: lie. They ask questions looking for one of two things: what they want and expect OR something so far off the blocks like homeboy above here. They like stuff that will make them laugh, like that. But mostly, they're looking for something within a range of what they expect. And confidence. They're also looking for confidence or some crap.
If this is what you have for a response...I've got some bad news for you...
Interviewer: (whispers) fvck he’s good
I once told the interviewer that I just needed money. They chose me over 10 others because I was honest. Now I can't wait to leave!
When I ask this question in interviews, I always emphasize the YOU as in why should I hire you above all others
