You're Fired


Say hello to ‘The Fireman.’ During an interview, the fire alarm starts to go off. The hiring manager dashes out of the room telling the candidate to ‘Stay put.’ After a few minutes, the hiring manager returns and says it’s nothing and that they can continue the interview.

The alarm is still blaring and continues to do so the entire time. After the interview, the candidate found out the building WAS actually on fire.

We’d love to hear your hiring horror story. Feel free to share!
