Job Interview Tip #3185: Make the employer convince you to work for them

So I went to a job interview for some sales position where it was revealed that I was to go door-to-door. I was about to tell the woman to fuck off, but decided to let it play out. Here is what followed:

"So why do you think you would make a good salesman?"
"That is no longer of concern in this interview. I have not been convinced that I want to work for you."
"[several minute defensive rant about how great the company is, room for opportunities, and competitive wages]"
"I am still not convinced. Hand me back my resume. [retrieve resume] Have a nice day."

Key to success: Assert yourself; stay confident. When things turn for the worse, take advantage.

    LOL. A chink telling someone to "fuck off." I'd like to see that.

    None of them around here. Poor ingenious fucks are kept locked 14 hrs a day on $7.25 in a sweatshop without food. At least the spic has enough dignity to tell the manager to screw himself.

    gl on ur next job

    Thanks. I actually have a job already, but it's in the evenings, so I'm just looking for a day job.

    It's great what a little confidence can do to turn the tables. Just remember to get your resume back if you ever choose to walk out :p

    Glad I saw this. Most people would roll over and feel slightly uncomfy at the thought of a shit job but know they had no other choice.

    You go on about making sure to get your resume back like it was the only copy you made.

    Oh, no I just meant for it to be a show of assertion that I want nothing to do with the company :p

    Haha, quality mate. You turned the tables on her so that she had to prove why she wanted you to work for the company and not why you wanted to work for the company :P

    She should have given you the job.
    "Buy these windows!"
    "no"
    "You should convince me why you aren't buying these windows!"
    "OH GOD TAKE MY MONEY!"
