Would you say this to a potential employee? I applied to be a part-time barista in a coffee shop and the guy literally told me I had a 1 in 23 chance of being hired. I shut down as soon as I heard him say that. Any thoughts?

    I think what he meant was that there were 23 applicants. You have the same chance as the rest. BTW, that was your chance to impress any unique skills or aptitude for the job on him. Obviously, you blew it.

    The Jackass May Not Be U But U Clearly R Not A good listener. He finishes an interview, telling you that you are at the bottom of the pile and you don't get it that he was not impressed? Yeah, we did not get it, alright. We thought you were at the beginning of the process. Now you say you got that at the end...which was a clue bigger than your left foot. What did he mean, you ax? He meant you did not impress him from the other 23. Don't blame us because you posted without putting all the relevant information down the first time. But don't let that bother you, many make the same dumb mistake. Don't blame Smarten_upz because you failed to provide all the information necessary to make an informed post. Like pulling teeth sometimes.

    Is this a post or not Who r u that I have to explain every nook and cranny too. All I wanted was some constructive feedback not to be ed a humiliated and made to feel stupid. I've taken countless seminars on good interviewing skills and it wasnt even a formal interview are you trying to help ppl or tear them down?

    You Started This. Read Below. First, anyone who comes here asking for free advice should be leaving a thank you behind. But you criticized Smarten_upz instead of just taking the post, saying thanks and moving on. He DID give you good advice, based on what he/we thought was the scenario. It took you two posts to say you were told about that '23 skidoo' stuff at the END of the interview. Which makes a big difference. Anyone would have told you that you were told -most obviously- that you blew the interview or at the least, failed to impress. That you need an interpretation is my picking on you. Which does not excuse you from posting insufficient information from the start. Where in your life do you go around giving out partial information and have a 'right' to expect a working response when you held back -intentionally or not- the REST of the data necessary to make an informed decision. I think you are reacting defensively and that is okay, you did not expect to run into me. But criticizing Smarten_upz when he gave you good advice and then we also find out you left out important details does not absolve you in this matter. Had you given all relevant data the first time, Smarten_upz would still have said you blew the interview and you don't seem to get that and I may or may not have said the same thing. Next time you post here, consider giving all the details so an informed post can be provided. Where do you live/in what world do you live that giving out partial information works for you?

    He Told U Something & U Were Supposed 2 Ax him something. He was telling you he did not want to hire you or he would have said something more supportive/positive. Assuming you were speaking to a HA. If that person was not the HA then the next question still applies: You ought to have asked what it is that is missing in so many candidates/applicants that they need but don't see. There may be more to it than that such as a volume of applicants, most of whom can't be hired due to the few number of openings but, this is still a good question to ask. And it works for most interviews, as well. Paul

    Thanks... Some positive feedback unlike the dickhead above you. He made it sound like I should've pulled at a stick and played fetch and begged and rolled over for the man.

    No. Had You Provided All Relevant Info I'd have told you to clean the shit out of your ears. You must be delusional. The guy finishes the interview by telling you that you don't stand out worth a damn and then you come here for an interpretation? You are the reason we have stop signs at uncontrolled intersections.

    There Are Reasons Why I Do This: 1. I'm a prick so I'm being a prick; 2. I'm talking to the gallery and what comes forth from what I know will happen is for the group, not just the poster; 3. HHP is bored; 4. I react to someone's post when they throw down on a regular without justification- that refers us back to #1; 5. I deliberately trigger someone hoping they will 'get it'. Today it is #1, #3, #4 and #5. No, I am not without sin here but what came out of this is that GossipG lacks Rigor, Awareness and possesses a thin skin. So, as if it matters, GossipG has shown us s/he is not ready for Customer Service. Which requires Rigor, a thick skin, patience, courtesy without conditions and of course, -that which GossipG is sorely lacking- awareness. Anyway, you would have been correct to just say I should 'knock it off'. Thanks, Paul..........bored before making my next

    Well Actually, This Stuff Amuses Some & 4 Others lurking, several may learn to take what you did not and use it to their advantage. Because Smarten_upz was kind enough to give you perfectly good advice you subsequently stepped on. Paul

    Had You Not Called Smarten_Upz Names I would have approached this entire thread differently. You got back what you gave Smarten_upz. Take it like a doggy dog or stfu.

    No, Actually, I Am the Aura Master, LOL! You should do what I do when an account fails to close and I go through my file, reading all my notes from the previous month: This is what you said: Excuse Me? GossipG 10/01 15:31:09 I blew it? He told me this at the end of the interview. After I shared all my extra skills and experience jackass. Geez arent you the optomistic one ...and that is when I said you must be as dumb as a rock to not get that the interviewer had just told you that you failed to make the cut. ...and that instead of recognizing that, you come here for confirmation that the interviewer 'picked on you' or spoke to you in some language of which you are not familiar and, ...don't we agree that you were treated inhumanely? You came here looking for sympathy and confirmation of your assessment of the interviewer and instead you were given advice, followed by insults. Which has resulted in your falling back to using all caps. It is like I said, you failed the Customer Service test. In fact, I can go one further, based on our little experiment here- I think Smarten_Upz and I ought to contract with Starbucks and Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf to do their initial screening for them. Before you know it, we'll be floating in latte while you are pumping gas, saving up to be a vet. 'Course, I hope your Anger Management issues are resolved before you are allowed to touch peoples' pets. You are not fit for animal medicine any more than you are qualified to get me my 'tall drip', LOL! Hey, don't worry about it, there was no charge for today... But the next time you come by....

    Now your just being a dick head. Insulting my future career goals. I take that very seriously and I can read my own posts stupid. I've already had a job in C.S. and successfully impressed my boss enough to get a L.O.R. You dont know me from adam, so you have no idea of what im truly capable of. Unless by some wild chance you were the interviewer you can only guess what that truly meant. Besides I never said I didnt know what it meant, I just asked is it something you should say....if you'd actually read my post instead of looking for an opportunity to be a jerk and me names you'd know that.

    I wouldn't hire you either based on your posts! Good grief GossipG! Lighten up! I read every single post and I think you have totally over reacted based on the info you supplied in your original post.......period! Don't ass-u-me that people can read your mind when you post. How in the world would anyone know what took place when from your original post....They wouldn't, yet it was an extremely important point that you left out that this all happened AFTER you were done interviewing! It makes a world of difference on the interpretation of what the end result would be from posters IF you had mentioned that 'minor' detail. If you can't see that then you have an extremely short fuse and a 'tude' that definitely needs changing!

    candidness appreciated I would thank the person that informs you of any information in the process. It is fiercely competitive out there. It's a miracle if a prospective employee gets any info out of anybody while in an application process. That guy is wonderful to help you understand the numbers of people and so that one isn't overly optimistic.
