I intentionally bombed an interview. I applied at a grocery store, then heard they treated their employees poorly so I didn’t want the job anymore. My favorite question: “Would you say you have good people skills?” 

My response: “Sort of. I actually kind of hate everybody, but I’m really good at pretending I like them and making them think I’m super nice!” 

They called back and asked if I could start the next day. They were impressed by my candor and self awareness. 

My point is, if I can intentionally suck up an interview and still get hired, I’m sure you have nothing to worry about with yours. Best of luck!

lilchicana: im sure if it was like that for you it was like that for everyone! Don’t overthink it….I wouldn’t be too concerned with a boss who chooses to interview you at a pub.
