Would you accompany your spouse/SO to a job interview?

Posted by   + Show Post

My best friend this morning told me she went to her husband's job interview. At first I didn't think anything of it, assuming she'd driven him and sat in the waiting room while he went in for the interview since I know he can't drive himself right now due to an injury to his right foot/ankle, but her husband said she went in with him and had even answered questions that he was asked, as if he wasn't there. He was pretty upset and humiliated by the whole thing, but she thinks he's being ridiculous and that it's perfectly normal for a wife to go into a job interview with her husband like that. While I admit that I've gone on 3rd or 4th job interviews with my husband where they had expressly requested to meet the family, I'd never even think to go unless they'd asked for me, and even on those occasions, I didn't answer questions unless they were put to me (he got those jobs, so I know I didn't hurt his chances, lol). 

Would you go on a job interview with your husband if they didn't ask to meet the family?

What a weirdo! She is insane to think that is in any way, shape or form appropriate or normal.

That is one of the most abnormal things to do that I can think of...

Gone to the place with him? Yes. I would either wait in the truck or walk around maybe get something to drink. I wouldn't however go to the actual interview with him and answer questions for him.
