#1-An applicant was stretched out on the floor to fill out the job application.

#2-I was conducting an interview with an applicant who was wearing a Walkman. She said she could listen to me and the music at the same time.

#3-A balding job candidate abruptly excused himself, and returned to the office a few minutes later wearing a hairpiece!

#4-The interviewee stated that if he were hired, he would demonstrate his loyalty to the company by having the corporate logo tattooed on his forearm.

#5-A job applicant announced she hadn’t had lunch during her interview. She then proceeded to eat a hamburger and french fries in the interviewer’s office, wiping the ketchup on her sleeve.

#6-In the middle of the interview, the interviewee interrupted to phone his therapist for advice on answering specific interview questions.

#7-A job applicant asked to see the interviewer’s resume. He wanted to see if the personnel executive was qualified to judge the candidate.

#8-The craziest “show” of my HR career came when I asked the candidate about his hobbies. He stood up and started tap dancing around my office.
