Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
1. Have ever had a skanky applicant?
yes, I was once asked by a very attractive female if there was anything I (HR) could do to help her get the job. I’m pug fugly, so she must have been pretty desperate.
2. Have you ever experienced a moment where the interviewee answer text during the interview?
Oh god, I have a million. Most recent was a guy who filled out his application via texts from his mother. He would take a picture of the question on the app and she would text him back the answer. He took an hour to fill out a two page basic application.
3. How about inappropriate work attire?
I saw a guy during his first week of training wearing jeans with air brushed on strippers. He was told to go home.
4. Have you ever had a desperate applicant?
I once interviewed a woman who kept flirting with me, touching me, telling me how she was willing to anything for this job, wink, etc. She was sort of attractive, but I sure as hell wasn’t interested. Then came the clincher:
Me: “What made you leave your previous position?”
Her: “My boss fired me because I gave him herpes.”
5. Any encounter of an applicant guy who showed up like an idiot?
I Interviewed a guy who showed up in a rock t-shirt and had goggles on his head. He smelled so bad we had to cut the interview short.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
