According to several sites on the net (i.e., possibly apocryphal) personnel executives of 100 major American corporations were asked for stories of unusual behavior by job applicants:
Said he was so well qualified [that] if he didn’t get the job, it would prove that the company’s management was incompetent. Stretched out on the floor to fill out the job application. Brought her large dog to the interview. Chewed bubble gum and constantly blew bubbles. Candidate kept giggling through serious interview. She wore a Walkman and said she could listen to the music and me at the same time. Balding candidate abruptly excused himself. Returned to office a few minutes later wearing a hairpiece. Applicant challenged interviewer to arm wrestle. Asked to see interviewer’s resume to see if the personnel executive was qualified to judge the candidate. Announced she hadn’t had lunch and proceeded to eat a hamburger and French fries in the interviewer’s office.
