Job interview nightmares

Interview nightmares: Employers too narrowminded Interview nightmares: The nervous gesticulator Job interview nightmares: It's getting personal Job interview nightmares: Which company is this? 'I don't employ married women' Name, experience... weight? Job interview nightmares: I messed this one up... Interview nightmares: 'Um, cos I'm awesome?' The creepiest interview ever Sorry, how old are you?

I recently went for an interview for an office manager position at an accountancy firm.

I was interviewed by the owner and his questions were like this:

1. Do you own your own home?

2. Are you married?

3. Do you have life insurance? If so, who with, and for how much?

3. How much do you have in the bank?

4. What type of books do you read?

and so on...

There were only a few questions on the position itself. I walked away and told the agency I did not want to be called back for a second interview.
