Job interviews... I suck at them

I've been looking for a better job. One with better pay and better. My current job schedules me less then 20 hours a week and the pay isn't that great. In all honestly I hate my job. I've had a few job interviews. I think I don't give the employer the answers they are looking for. For example I'm asked if I were to be hired on would I stay with my current job and work both places. My answer is no. Then I'm asked why. This is where I bomb... I respond with I feel s if it is not the right job for me. Is it a bad answer? Or should I answer that question?

Tell them you would want open availability for them & you feel unappreciated at your current job.

Your local unemployment office has resources that can help you. You don't have to be unemployed to participate in the classes and seminars.
Your library might offer something too.

Don't say anything negative about your current company. That's horrible advice. Just say you're looking to expand your skills.

I had an interview on Friday & was honest about why I disliked my prior job & they understood. Just giving the advice that worked for me. I was hired, btw.

Maybe that company didn't care, but in my experience it's a huge turn off for most to say negative things about employers.

Well then I think we can agree the open availability will sound good to them. :) lol

I don't say anything negative about my current job. I know that won't get me a job anywhere.
