Okay, so this morning I got a phone call from a dentist, asking if I was still interested in the position (since he said he received my resume in February and it's now June). I said of course, so he started asking me some questions:
Why do you have just a GED? Were you too lazy to finish high school?
Are you married? What does your husband do?
You've been a sahm for 2 years, is it because you haven't been able to find a real job?
Have you ever collected unemployment? Are you still on it?
How long have you been married?
Oh, your daughter is 3 and you've been married almost 5 years. Nice to see somebody got it right.
Did your parents pay for the wedding or did his?
Oh, you live in a trailer, is that where you wanna stay for the rest of your life?
How come you didn't go to college, or was that too much to ask from somebody with just a GED.
Those are just some of the questions he asked me. I was shaking mad when I got off the phone with him. I'm still going to the interview tomorrow because I wanna show this asshole that I'm better than him. I'm a tough Brooklyn girl and I'm going to remain tough no matter what.
How would you feel if somebody asked you these questions?
Update: I ended up going to the interview. I wanted to show this "man" that I wasn't the uneducated trailer trash that he thought I was. I went in there looking very professional, and had all my stuff (an extra resume, my awards from my previous jobs, and a list of professional references) with me. The receptionist there, gave me an application to fill out, which only took about 15 mins, and then I waited. I waited for an HOUR to be seen! There was NO ONE in the waiting room, and nobody came in our out since I got there! Finally, he calls me back and he walks into the room and goes "Oh hello," in this surprised and snarky kinda tone. I honestly think he was surprised that I was black. He looked over the application that I just filled out and said "You have beautiful handwriting," then nothing. He said "Hmm, we'll a lot of people want this job, so if I feel like you're good enough to be chosen, then I might call you next week." So technically, my "interview" lasted less than 5 mins. I wasted over an hour of my life on some asshole.
