We were shocked when a reader told us about a telephone interview that was interrupted by a flush; however, it seems there are a few people who aren’t shy about talking to a prospective employer in the bathroom.
Here’s the reader’s story:
“I was calling for a scheduled phone interview with a candidate. His wife answered the phone and said "oh, he is in the shower." Before I knew it, his wife handed him the phone and he was talking with me while in the shower. Of course, I cut the phone call short and told the candidate to call me when it was convenient for him. I didn't hear from him again.”
We’re not sure what this applicant was thinking. Apart from making the hiring manager uncomfortable, how can you hear anything with the water running?
Thank you for sharing your strange but true story with us!
