The worst answers to interview questions.

I recently heard someone say there is no wrong answer. Well, that in itself, is indeed a wrong answer! There are some terrible answers out there. No, we shouldn’t simply embrace idiocracy because people are “being themselves.” For example, if you are applying for a job as a cashier and you have served time for armed robbery- while you may have recovered and changed your life- applying for that job isn’t the best idea because the answer you will have to give to certain cash related questions will be the… Read more
