The Burping Personal Assistant
I had an interview today for a management position that was paying 140K, so I was excited to meet the candidate for the upcoming interview. The interview started off a little awkward with the applicant asking if we could switch positions in the interview room due to the issue of sitting with his back to the door.
I gave the candidate some specific notes to take during the interview and instead of writing them down he asked if I could shoot him a quick email with all the details; while by rambling off about 5 burps in a row without excusing himself. He called me a couple days later to inquire about the email he asked me to send and when I would be setting up an interview with the company... I let him know the position had been filled!

Did you just call me Cowboy?
I had a candidate come in for an interview wearing what I considered beach attire. He was completely overbearing, called me cowboy and let me get in very little during the interview. In fact it got to the point where I had to ask him to listen and stop leading the interview. How this guy ran a multi-million dollar company I have no idea, but I know why he no longer works there!
