I received an interview with a Neon Boldly To boldly go where no one has gone before shirt huge multinational not far from where I lived. Yay! I’d interviewed a lot to that point, trying to escape my awful job, and it was a recession so lots of interviewing with little results. I knew the drill. 1 – 2 hours to screen me. Maybe they’ll call me back for a second, meatier interview if I pass the first. Yada yada yada. So I go for this great opportunity. The first thing they do is a drug screen. Huh? What? This is a screening interview. I haven’t decided I want the job and they can’t know if I’m the right fit, but they’re demanding a drug screen? I find them necessary but demeaning and I hate them. But I did it anyway.

That lasted a Neon Boldly To boldly go where no one has gone before shirt hour. Then the interviewer for another hour. Okay, I’m now hours into this interview. My head is starting to spin. Finally, one of the interviewers hit my hot button. He prattled on and on about how people don’t view this as a job, it’s an “assignment” and I could be transferred at their will at any time. A drop of a hat, you get moved to Peoria. No choice in the matter. He also boasted about how everyone works a 12 hour day every day. The really great employees work every Saturday as well. Only a slacker would consider not coming in. I’m now six hours into this thing. I finally get to the “big guy” who actually makes the decision. He drones on. I have reached the point where I just didn’t give a damn and said whatever came to mind. I wanted to get thrown out at this point.
