Job interviews where the interviewer asks no questions
 
Has anyone else had this? I've had two job interviews recently where I got asked no questions. What's the point? At the first one I literally said "have you got any questions for me?" to the guy interviewing me. At the second one I had to pathetically talk about how great I am with no prompting like some egomaniac douchebag. Is this a common thing or am I just unlucky?

Colonel Flagg Dec 9th, 2011 09:38 AM

Unlucky is my guess. When interviewing I always try to ask questions testing the background of the interviewee.

I've never had that happen to me. It seems like most of the time the interviewer will just ask behavioral and background questions.

At that point you should realize that hes not going to hire you and you should berate him for wasting your time with this unorthodox nonsense. Tell him that you find it personally insulting that he would not even prepare for the interview and then try to pass it off as some new age methods shit.

Also see my thread "Helpful Tips by Evil Robot".

may get you a job as the next CEO.

Aaarg Dec 9th, 2011 01:24 PM

the last two interviews i had were essentially "do you want to work here?" "ok." "when can you start?"

and now i can't get an interview. :(


probably unlucky, though. i've never had a questionless interview.

My last interview turned out to be more of an orientation that ended with "can you start tonight?". The one before that... I walked in and sat down, the guy started telling me about the company then asked me "got any questions?". I asked "Yeah, did I get the job?". He says "no, not yet. I will call you.". Never heard from that guy.

:lol

fuck all of those people

the only job i got offered an interview at recently sent me a fucking e-mail offering me the interview. So i went to their website to schedule an interview and it said they were all filled.

cocksuckers.

The last interview I did was just for a grad student assistant job. He ended up talking my ear off for nearly 30 minutes and didn't really ask me much.

It was only between me and this one girl and I'm pretty sure I lost out on the job because the girl was hot >:

cocksuckers

You should have interviewed as a hotter looking girl though.

Yeah I don't think that sentence makes any sense. I sure hope you don't speak like you write.

elx Dec 10th, 2011 07:09 PM

if you're applying for a desirable position in which two dozen other people have also applied to, don't expect them to know your resume at all -- they'll probably only graze through it a minute or so before the interview and during, so they end up not knowing anything about you from the start.

if you're applying for a poorly advertised availability, or one that nobody wants, they'll probably take the time to read your resume, and if you did it right, there shouldn't be any questions to begin with. so yeah.

Tacobot Dec 11th, 2011 04:38 AM

Sorry to hear, i would pretty pissed off if someone wasted my time with some BS like that.
For all the shitty interviews i was doing recently, they would at the least try figure out if yer a psyco.

ChrisGlass Dec 13th, 2011 09:32 PM

Sometimes people see interviews as ego trips, so they like to play god and do psychological bullshit to fuck with people.

I've been having to interview a ton of people lately, and I'm slowly getting better at it.

BatmanJohnson Dec 13th, 2011 10:56 PM

I've never had an interview without questions. Weird. Mine are always the stereotypical interview questions that are supposed to give the interviewer insight into how you work. Only trouble I've ever had is when they ask me to talk about myself. I always freeze up when asked to describe myself.

Colonel Flagg Dec 14th, 2011 07:20 AM

"If you were a tree, what kind would it be?"

"Where do you see yourself in 5 years?"

Two of the stupidest interview questions ever asked.

Aaarg Dec 15th, 2011 01:35 PM

you've seriously been asked that tree question? that's awesome.

i'd probably answer "tsuga canadensis because they're hard-working and get along well with co-workers and always show up on time!" but really it's because i'm being eaten to death by bugs :(

cartooncart Dec 15th, 2011 04:37 PM

By the way, if they ask you if you have any questions, you should always prepare a question about stupid bullshit. I got a job and during the "do you have questions" period, I asked them about their policies on environmental issues, etc...

ChrisGlass Dec 16th, 2011 05:39 PM

The best thing is to task them questions about their job. Gushing and getting them happy is a good trick.

kahljorn Dec 16th, 2011 06:25 PM

the best thing to do is ask them if they want a blowjob

Colonel Flagg Dec 16th, 2011 08:09 PM

^^^This.

Protip - If you're being interviewed by a woman, this trick may not work. Be observant!
