Interview Question

Marketing Manager InterviewHauppauge, NY

First Empire Securities

In the process of explaining a period of unemployment I mentioned that I had done side work in private security and as a youth sports official. I mentioned that I was not embarrassed that I had to work multiple jobs to support myself and provide financial support to my ex and my daughter. At this point the Marketing VP asked if I had done work as a male stripper because that would be embarrassing.

Typical unprofessional question by the VP. I see things haven't changed over there.

I smiled and looked to the HR representative who was in the room to see if she wanted to move on to the next question.
