    ‘Candidate told the interviewer he was fired for beating up his last boss’
    Sounds like a good assistant for CatBert!

    Nice real world examples at the link. I once got a call from HR telling me to not worry about an interview with an applicant because he showed up drunk. The HR manager called the cops when he refused a free cab ride and they busted him as he left the parking lot.
    I don’t have too many horror stories because everywhere I’ve had a hiring role, HR did a pretty good job of screening applicants. I’ve had my issues with HR staff, but that’s one area where I think they are under-appreciated.

    The tips include not answering your cell phone, and not flushing your toilet while on a phone interview. What about cell phones with a flushing toilet as a ring tone?
    Are those acceptable? Or not?
