Pyramid scheme

Word of advice: if they constantly talk about "improving your life" without actually saying what the job is, leave

Group interviews are a red flag. Avoid them.
If you are that disposable you dont wanna work for them.

That guy wasn’t being socially inept. The interviewers should have apologized and introduced the owner to the interviewee before just ignoring him for 10-15 minutes. That was just poor manners

"Corporate Culture" and "Passion" have become meaningless buzzwords and code for "We want you to do free work"

I was told the pay was competitive. I was offered $26 an hour.... I was making $43.50 at their competitor

Funny how a some companies are all about money, then when you do the same in turn, it's a "conflict of interest".

The interviewer basically told me if I didn't want to work for his business I was an idiot. Which made me not want to work for his business.

The supervisor who said sadly "no this isn't a good company to work for" is a true hero.

I was interviewing for a job and basically they told me they wanted me to do more work for less money than I was getting at my current job. I laughed at the interviewer and left.

I went into an interview once, they guy gave me the run down of the job and wanted me due to my high level of skill. Then offered me a couple dollars above minimal wage. I told him I would only work for double that or if benefits started immediately I would work for half again as much.

He asked me why I thought I should be paid so much and I told him all the training, years on the job I had and all the tickets and certifications that came with me.

He said that sounded great and offered me an extra 2 dollars an hour. I quoted him a number that was two and a half times the initial offer plus better benifits, he tried to move the interview along to another topic saying we could circle back to pay later after I saw how fun and nice the facilities were to work in.

I told him thank you for the offer but I wasn't interest in working for so little when you need me to do so much.

I hate how companies are refusing to pay for skilled and trained employees what they are worth.

I remember the first thing this guy told me was "this job isn't a scam" I was like. Sounds like a scam lol.

So many employers seem to think it's still 2005 when they're doing hiring; and they're baffled when candidates laugh and walk out on them when they try to pull the recession-era games on them.

This happened some years back now, so it'll be largely paraphrased, but it played out basically like this:

I walked out of an interview where I was specifically applying for a front-end web designer position. My skills and experience clearly in Photoshop, HTML, CSS, etc. Interviewer starts asking me back-end developer questions, nothing to do with design at all. As they kept asking me questions, which I couldn't answer, obviously, the interviewer was getting annoyed, and so was I. Both of us were obviously wondering what the heck I was doing there. I finally stopped them and said "Hold up a minute. I'm here for a Front-End Designer job, and you've been asking me programming and database questions". They said "That's the job. That's what I'm interviewing you for". I said "Okay, so we're clearly wasting each other's time. I think we can end it here. Thanks for your time", and left.

The interview had been set up through a staffing agency, so when I got home, I called them up and my rep, sounding aggravated, asked me "What happened? They said you walked out of the interview?". I said "Yes, did they tell you why?". "They said you couldn't answer any of the questions, said you were wasting your time there, and left". I said "That's partially correct. It was a waste of both our time. They were interviewing for a Back-End Developer position, and I'm a Front-End Designer. Completely different things."

They insisted I should have sat through and finished the interview anyway, because I made them look bad by leaving. I replied "You made yourself look bad by sending a Designer to an interview for a Programming job". They said "Thank you for your time", and hung up. Never heard from them again. Not that I'd want to.

The manager showed up late to my interview, then told me to wait only a few more minutes while they interviewed someone else.

If they don't respect your time before you even have a job there then they definitely won't respect it when you're hired.

Some interviewers use that tactic, they casually drop the "we work extra for no pay because we love this work", to make you leave. It's usually a very good position and they have someone laid up for the job, nephew, sister, etc, but they have to hold interviews. They make everyone leave and only "the chosen one" passes. Fucking nepotism.

One time the boss didn’t show for my interview so I got up and left. He texted me 45 minutes after our scheduled time to ask where I was, I replied “let me ask you something, if I was 45 minutes late to the interview would you have hired me?” I then proceeded to delete the conversation and block his number lol respect is a two way street buddy

Be weary of any job where the interviewer says: "The job's pretty easy, just watch out for ______."

It's a trap. Whatever ____ is, it will happen often.

Guy told me post interview to call him if I had any questions. I had questions, so I called him. He asked me why I was calling him.
