The Interview

Intimidated, as he sits there waiting,
For me to answer the question asked,
I'm anxious...he remains calm, relaxed.

Under inspection, can't lose my attention,
Focus...Stop thinking about other stuff,
He looks like he's had more than enough.

He's contemplating, his interest fading.
Powerful, a man who's heard everything,
Is there nothing left worth mentioning?

He leans forward, you're feeling cornered.
Nervously, you're fiddling with your pen,
He keeps asking and you keep answering.

And we're done, that was far from fun.
Stand up and thank him for his time,
As he yells out the door, "next in line!"

Darkinsider,Quantum12, valiant

Thank you! Makes me anxious too, valiant! When I do interviews, I make sure to relax the potential candidate..make them feel calm and comfortable. Because I want to see who they really are and what they are about..want them to be open, honest (learned this from a loss prevention manager). But I have sat through this type of interview before..and it just makes you think about how quickly you can leave instead of the questions well as doubt if you wanna work for the company..because of the way they interview.

Thanks for commenting,

Interview meltdown :

"Yes, I believe in casual dress all of the time."
"No, I don't own any ties . .they make me feel like I'm being strangled."
"Yes, I suppose I could get one. Does it have to be a certain color ?"
"Red ?" "Why red ?" "Oh yeah, that "power" look."
"You want me to work how many hours a week ?" "Geez."
"At what hourly rate ?" "Are you kidding me ?" "Are you freaking kidding me ?"

"Do you know how long I waited outside your office, just to hear you say "next" ?
"And now you want me to work endless hours for little or nothing ?" "Are you kidding me ?"

"What ?" "I need to smile more ?" "Don't make me climb over that desk !" "Okay, here I come. Red tie huh ? "I'll give . . . . .
