27 People Answer The Question, “What’s The Worst Job Interview You’ve Ever Had?”

Looking for a job might actually be worse than having a job you want to escape. It’s like working for free, but with even more judgment and traveling involved. You never know who is going to be interviewing you, what biases they might have, or if they’ll notice you’re so hungover you’re about to barf in the trash can. We all remember our worst interviews because deep shame is very memorable.

Writer Harriet Williamson asked for people to share that shame on Twitter, writing, “Twitter, what’s the worst job interview you’ve ever had?”

Weirdly, some of the people describing their worst interview ever actually got the jobs they were interviewing for, which means there’s hope for even the most awkward and woefully unprepared job seekers out there. But most of them didn’t.
