    Not really a job, but it was for a position at my uni to write blogs for the Criminology department.

    These were some of the questions from the interview:

    "If you could give advice to a newborn baby, what would you say?"
    "What is your favourite tv show?"
    "Is your desk neat or messy?"

    A) The baby won't fucking understand me, you daft bitch.
    B) Why the fuck is this relevant?
    C) I don't own a desk.

    Jesus Christ, what happened to basic ass interview questions? They rejected me, I asked for feedback and they said "I didn't display enough self-confidence".

    That's because on the "what are you weaknesses?" question I went on a rant about how bad I am with communication skills. Apparently I'm supposed to lie and say "my only weakness is that I'm too beautiful". Fuck job interviews, they're so useless.

    I'm always asked how old I am.

    I don't know? I feel like it's not.
    But I also look quite a bit younger than I am, and my resume says 10 years experience, so I figure they're just making sure I'm not lying.

    That sounds reasonable. You should still sue them anyway, though.

    I once answered with "this question" and the manager laughed and said he likes someone who can have fun. At the end of the interview he asked what size of shirt I am (initially I was suuuuper creeped out) but he was asking because they supplied the shirts and completely bypassed telling me I got the job. There was also a little bit of a language barrier, so maybe he implied it but I didn't catch on lol
