Every once in a while there are job interviews so strange that they can only be considered once in a lifetime events. We've compiled some real life crazy job interview stories – they're good, they're bad, and they're downright crazy… But one thing is for sure - they're gonna make you laugh.
“My interview for the job was in two parts, one was over lunch with several people I would be working within the administration. We went to a small cafe in Louisiana and they ordered boiled crawfish for everyone, which came with a bib for me, a tray to put my tails in, and a big glass of tea. I had never even seen a crawfish till that day, not even ate one.
“When they came I watched how they striped something off of each one, then de-headed them and ate them. I tried that, found out what the bib was for, and noticed how spicy they were (tea was rescue for that and taste) then they told me to suck the crawfish head (that still had eyes, and whiskers or something). All I could see was ugly stuff inside, but I sucked it and lucky I had swallowed it whole, they all clapped and thought I was going to be a good person to work with because I took a chance. They did not see all of the ugly crawfish I had wrapped up in napkins and put in my purse to throw away ASAP.
“I got the job because they had approved my resume but they wanted to make sure I would fit in with the people.”
