    Tell them the pay. That will get rid of 180 applicants at the very beginning.

    Someday, I'm going to make a video montage of me asking some of these questions after interviews with employers. Keep the suggestions rolling in, guys! I want the video to go viral!

    What sucks is when 200 people apply for a job, and you have to go through it all and find 6 candidates.
    I don't want to waste my time on a bad interview, or much worse, a bad hire. Sometimes I get many great applicants, that not only sucks, but it really sucks when you have to tell someone who interviewed great, but not as great as someone else.

    "My ass itches. How about yours?"



    P.S. It is important to remember to ask this question an instant before shaking the employer's hand, when they haven't touched you uet but don't have time to pull away.

    "So, which is your primary masturbation hand? I prefer the right."

    This, as Jesse Booth points out, requires careful timing for greatest effect.
    In this case, it is best if the last word, "right", falls just before you grab their hand to shake.
    Education.
