Oddest thing I was asked; "If a fellow employee is obviously upset about something you don't know about, what do you do?"

2 Answers

I let them know that, frankly, it isn't my business if someone comes to work in a huff or upset, but I would reach out to the person on break/lunch to see if they were okay. I would offer advice or council to seek HR, if needed, but noted that sometimes family or life matters outside of work can affect performance. Since this is not a management position, I would not intervene unless need be. Less

As the interviewing manager I would like to counter some of these comments. Candidate interviewed at the end of January and was told they were the first to interview, that we would continue to interview others, and that they would be notified once a decision was made. The candidate is correct that they were told they were a "good fit" but was never told they were a perfect fit. The candidate was not asked the question they indicated above. The question posed was, "Tell me about a time or situation where you had to collaborate with a co-worker that had a difficult personality." Due to a slow influx of candiates this did position did take longer than expected to fill, and then the COVID crisis hit halting all of our hiring efforts. I followed up with the Recruiter and she indicates that she did reach out to this candidate and incidated that they were not selected and thanked them for their time. We appreciate all of our candidates and try our best to make the interview process transparent and effective for all parties. We do offer an apology if there was some misinterpretation of the interview comments, and wish the candidate all the best in their future endeavors. Less

Standard basic questions, nothing unusual.

2 Answers

If you can't get hired at Kapco, that's pretty bad. I thought they hired anyone who walked in the door because they have such a high turnover rate. They can't keep anybody with half a brain because they are smart enough to get out of there and get a real job! Less

What programs are you mot comfortable with?

2 Answers

In this context, I suppose that you mean software -- applications. Is that so? Since 1987, I've developed documents and other files using many different varieties of software, on Macintosh, DOS, Windows, Unix and Linux. I'm game for anything, confident in my ability to operate well from the start, and fill in any missing proficiency smoothly as I go. Less

Yes they were talking about software. I have a laundry list of software on my resume, so they were asking me about my strengths. Less
