About eight or ten years ago, a mid-level account supervisor was interviewing at one of the big agencies. He had lost his previous job, which he had been in for a number of years, also at one of the big agencies. He had told me he really needed to work.
He got very comfortable with his female interviewer. Too comfortable. She asked him in a very matter of fact way, “So, what is your favorite part of the business? What do you like doing the most?”
Without missing a beat, he replied, “Going home on Friday nights. And drinking after work.”
He didn’t get the job.
Would love to hear your funny interview responses to share with my readers.
