I'm doing interviews for the rest of the week. Here some of my questions:

1. Have you ever known someone who experienced a serious mental illness?

2. Do you know anyone who has been incarcerated for a significant period of time?

3. What do you think about unwed mothers who receive public assistance and continue have additional children?

4. How would you advise a pregnant mom who is interested in bf'ing but has been discouraged by her DH because he thinks it's gross?

5. What do you think about someone taking a 1y to the dentist?

Your interview, no. I wouldn't get that job. A standard Adminstrative or Customer Service interview, I'll land any job.

Those aren't even legal questions to ask.

Those questions are inappropriate for a job interview. You wouldn't hire me based on the first two questions alone, but I wouldn't want to work for you after hearing those questions anyway.

Yes
Yes
Don't care
Do whatever you feel comfortable. He doesn't have to watch.
If it's allowed, go for it. It's good to set up that routine.


Do I win the job?

Yes

Yes

Other people's reproductive choices are not my business. Family planning is between a woman and her medical professionals. 

I would advise her to seek support from her medical professionals and any resources that they refer her to, but that ultimately it is up to her, not her husband. 

Taking a one year old to the dentist to get their first teeth cleaned and to familiarize the child with the dentist and the procedure is a good idea. It is important to start children with healthy habits early.

Probably not if you asked me those sort of questions, I would refuse to answer them as they have no baring on how i do my job or my work ethics.
