If You Cuss In Your Interview....

I'm not hiring you. I manage a customer service department, if you can't tell me about yourself and your qualifications without saying you don't "bullshit" people or that you don't "kiss ass" - I can't see putting you on a team meant to serve our clients. I can't trust your judgement.

Three(!!) people have done this.

Did you cuss on an interview? Did you get the job?

I didn't during my interview. I got the job. Me and the other chef in the kitchen sometimes cuss mildly in front of each other. I would never in front of our big boss or anything tho 😳

I wouldn't hire them either, because swearing in an interview is stupidity.   Like not dressing for an interview.   I once told an applicant to go home and change into what they would wear to work if they wanted me to spend time interviewing them.

Wow, that's bad. No I have never cussed during an interview. Around the office we all cuss a little bit, but I would not hire someone who cussed during the interview. Luckily it has never happened with anyone I've interviewed. My sister is my business partner and conducts interviews as well, she told me once that a guy "almost" cussed. She said she could tell he was about to say fuck but was able to stop himself. He wasn't hired but not because of that near slip lol.

I'm a teacher, so... no. Lol.
I have cussed in front of my boss on occasion. But not until she did it first.

But in the interview?

That was too much,lol.

I'm glad they felt relaxed at least.

Quoting valarie1979: I cussed to my boss and I still have a job. But I'm over qualified.
