14 People Talked About the Job Interviews They Ran Away From and Still Can’t Forget

My experience wasn't an interview, per se but I sat down to have an adult beverage and the manager came over and asked me if I had ever bartender. I told him I had and he went on to ask where I'd worked, how long, etc. I told him as it happened I was looking for a new job at that time. He acted all offended and said he didn't conduct interviews while the applicant was enjoying a mixed drink. HE approached ME. I dodged a bullet that day.
I once had an interview for a position as a prosecutor in Goshen, NY (Orange County). I lived in Buffalo, NY (Erie County.) It is at least five hours away but I was newly out of law school and it looked interesting. Because Albany was only two hours away, I drove to Albany to stay overnight with my cousin, and arrived fresh at 9am, for the interview. The interviewers kept asking me why I came five hours to the interview. I replied because they replied and asked me to come interview with them at their office. This gave them a range of giggles and laughter. They started asking around among themselves if they had ever hired anyone from Buffalo. This was just so amusing for them. I didn't get the job.
