I am so upset. I had an interview for a new job yesterday and just know I blew it. The job was absolutely perfect for me and I am well qualified for it. But, I cannot seem to answer even very common interview questions. I get flustered, so easily. I have not been on an interview for over 5 years and guess it shows LOL. I mean they asked things like "where do I see myself in 5 years" I mean sure, I could answer something like right here in this town, working for the same company, but does that make me look like I have no ambition or goals? I mean this is not a great area to live in, to be honest, you cannot get more small town ish. Another question, Describe your personality, blew this by saying things like outgoing and friendly and then in the next breath, quiet, shy? What the heck is wrong with me? I mean I did clarify that I am a quiet shy person until you get to know me, then I am very outgoing and friendly. How about "give us an example of how you handle a stressful situation?" An example? uh, I do not know, I did income taxes prior, how much more stressful can it get really? even my husband had a better answer than I could stutter out. The only saving grace would be if they contact my references, which are good and it shows I have worked for the same company for the last 5 years. Granted I was fired as the one boss was a big you-know what.... But I gave the other boss as a reference as he told me anything I needed he would give me. Also might help is the potential boss was really inquisitive about the chicken thing, asked a lot of questions, kept bringing it up. The boss that actually "fired" me fired me because I brought to his attention that he had not been paying me minimum wage for the last year. I had given him a copy when the wage increase went up the first of the year and he still did not give it to me on my paycheck after I pointed it out. He then gave me a story about he didnt need to because he had less than 5 employees. I knew that was not true. But, he is a control freak and because I confronted him about it, he decided and I quote "I do not think I can work with you anymore" BUT he did pay me all of the back difference he owed me for last year, and what I would have been owed this year. I figure if I was wrong, he would not have paid me anything at all. I contacted the state and I was correct, he was wrong.
