1) The first woman I interviewed told me 3 times she cried at work. Then couldn't even subtotal an excel sheet, and email it to me. The ad said "proficient in excel" Pro-ficient. That's basic.


2) The second one had no computer experience. Wouldn't even take the evaluation to show how well she may catch on, when I offered to walk her through it. She'd worked here before in another department, and I thought maybe she could catch on but wouldn't try.


3) I have two more days of interviews. This blows.

4) Grey's anatomy can suck it, right up there with Lost on season finales. Ass-holes!

5) My entire day is consumed with interviews, and I'm taking this hour to stuff my face instead of work out. I figured I owed the applicants not to be dissheveled when I meet them. I can shower but I can't get back together again and look presentable.

6) #3 made you assume I walk around half the day at work looking like ass. Maybe I do!

I'm going to the winery tomorrow with my manfriend and friends and drink my cares away under the stars.

That's living!

Drinking under the stars with the one you love -- sounds like a great time. I've never been to a winery.

It's good that you get to choose who your company will hire.

I'm happy you still find the time to do great fun things with your manfriend... good memories is what binds people together...

Doing interviews are always the worse!! Well, if you're holding them, lol...it is absolutely amazing what people will say during an interview. You have to wonder how some people even get jobs!

Have a great time this weekend!

Oh you so deserve all the fun time to drink and chill with the man friend after all that. Interviews are tough but sometimes people don't know it's tougher for the interviewers too :)

i've never had to do an interview from your end. but i've been interviewed enough to know that if ya don't know how to do something that's listed in the job description you either don't apply or you learn how to do it before the freakin interview. and you at least TRY if you want the job! duh!

good luck with that.
