My husband was qualified more than a kid right out of school and they told him this and gave the other guy the job. Now I am going for a job that is an hour away and they called me after the interview (before I even got home) today and left a message asking if I was still interested because of the commute. I left them a message about my current situation with commission and why this would be better for me, then said it would not be a problem. I wished to speak to her directly but she said to let her a message if she did not answer. I can see their concern but have been hearing similar to this from other people too.
Avoid interviewing gaffes by sidestepping these questions about residence, legal troubles and military service.
What you can't ask: How far is your commute?
Although hiring employees who live close by may be convenient, you can't choose candidates based on their location. Find out about their availability instead.
What to ask instead: Are you able to start work at 8 a.m.?
