interview etiquette

I just interviewed someone who just said "fuck" during our meeting.

Twice.

Is anyone else old school and thinks that's just a little...weird/wrong/odd/crazy/telling/ballsy?

Wow.

Maybe he/she was trying to impress you that "fuck" can be a verb and a noun.

You should recognize how he/she was trying to impress you. NOT!

Well, at least he made it easy for you to weed him out. I mean, can you imagine how much he swears when he isn't on "good behavior"?

kk said...

it wasn't said vehemently, more in conversation.

but still...

save that for when you're hired!

This person seems to have a large vocabulary--just what you need when you write for a living. Would hate to see what kind of copy would come from him!

There is nothing right nor appropriate about that!
I recycle resumes if there's a typo or grammar error - no excuses! That's your life in an hour/ or on paper!

My, how incredibly unprofessional and inappropriate! You'd think in this economy candidates would be on their best behaviour....

I'm exactly this way. I think it's rude and crass to swear during interviews. I think you should be classier and more professional than that.

In our clinic, it's kind of a plus.

this lends a whole new meaning to "a casual fuck".

HA! How weird! Some people just don't know...

You should definitely save the f-bomb for orientation day, in my opinion. Did you hire him?
