My answer to yesterdays post.
About a year ago in an interview I was asked: Have you ever stolen anything from your employer?
This is how I answered:
Well to be quite honest haven't we all? If you are asking about big items like computers, furniture, money, etc. Then I can honestly say no. However, if you are asking if I have ever taken anything, then I would have to answer yes. I have taken pens or paper clips or sticky notes. I can't imagine anyone ever working in an office and not ever taking anything.
Not sure if I answered that they way they wanted or not, but that is what came to mind and I said it. I am usually one that would think about how to answer interview questions, but that one I just blurted out.
I never got called back even though they said they would. Perhaps I was a little too honest for them?
