Interview Questions

What is the real purpose of interview questions that have obviously been taken from the “Idiots Guide To Interviewing New Employees”?

My interview consisted of twenty-five pre-selected questions with some clear themes. My best guess would suggest they have had a few gossiping, bitter and immature employes and hoped to make sure I wasn’t one of them. Does anyone actually get filtered out based on these kinds of questions?

*A few informative questions I should have studied for:*

*You are talking with two other employees and they start to complain about company. What would you do?*
Well since this question is very general and I don’t know if the problem is legitimate, I’m not too sure. Are these employees being sexually harrassed by a manager, or do they wish the free slurpee machine would finally change flavours? Since people don’t complain to other employees unless their problems are legitimate, I would suggest that the unhappy employees try to form a union.

*How would you feel if you were asked to work past the end of your shift?*
Sir, your generosity helps me pay the rent, I am yours to do whatever whenever. Unless your the manager that has been harrassing those two employees in the previous question, because there are a few things I won’t do, well not for $10 an hour anyway.

    No kidding, I went on a job interview that lasted all of five whole minutes and the only question the interviewer asked was why did I leave this or that job? THAT WAS IT!! Excuse me, sir but can I ask you a question? How in the world did you get to be a manager entrusted with the duties of interviewing people for jobs?? Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!
