HR Strange But True!
May 05, 2011

In the article ‘Outrageous Interviews: Hugs, Hats, and Hotheads’, we listed “ate all the candy from the candy bowl while trying to answer questions” as one of the strangest interview experiences on CareerBuilder’s list. Apparently, that’s not the only quirky thing an applicant can do with candy during an interview.

Here’s the story:

“We recently had a candidate show up for an interview and, while waiting for the hiring manager, she proceeded to empty the contents of my reception area candy jar into her purse!”

Taking all the candy from your prospective employer may not be malicious offense, but it may cast suspicions!
