Viewers' ‘blood boil’ as interviewers on Channel 4’s The Job Interview go on ‘total power trip’
Published 13/07/2016 | 11:15
Viewers of last night’s Channel 4 documentary series “The Job Interview” erred on the side of the interviewees, judging by comments on social media this morning.
Eight candidates were interviewed on the TV show for two jobs, one for an administrative position at Low Cost Vans in South Wales, another for an assistant manager role at luxury family home, Wickham House, which is being turned into an exclusive wedding and events venue.
The documentary makers selected an eclectic mix of candidates, including single mother Jody (34) who was terrified because she hadn't interviewed in 12 years.
Then Ian (51) who said he wanted to turn his life around after he was recently made redundant.
In the end, the candidates were whittled down to those two candidates who were very popular with viewers.
Take a look at what viewers have been saying about the judges though:
#TheJobInterview is making my blood boil. You can get far more out of an interview than these two idiots are doing. Total power trip.— Magnetic Recruitment (@magneticrc) July 12, 2016
Well at least the candidates aren't the only people coming out of this looking unprofessional. #TheJobInterview— Imogen Turner (@ImogenTweets) July 12, 2016
Coming off the back of political insanity, #TheJobInterview may be the final proof that Britain is now a dystopia.— Many A True Nerd (@ManyATrueNerd) July 12, 2016
Ooh good girl: "I don't want a job, I want this job". Woman after my own heart. Employers are fools #TheJobInterview— Becky (@beckyeh) July 13, 2016
I want someone who's a complete all rounder. A master of all trades.— Alex Deutsch (@alexdeutsch) July 12, 2016
But I don't want to pay them more than £22k. #TheJobInterview
Job hunting tip for the hard-of-thinking: Never EVER apply for a job that states your interview will be televised. #TheJobInterview— CharmlessNurk (@CharmlessNurk) July 12, 2016
I would've hired Amy a million times over. Fab personality, perfect for events! Their loss. #TheJobInterview— Katie Steingold (@steinyK) July 12, 2016
Well done Jody. Mums returning to work after a break - get out there and show what great skills you have! #TheJobInterview— Lindsay Southall (@mumspotential) July 12, 2016
#TheJobInterview on Ch4 was compulsive viewing in a cringeworthy way. IME interviewing is as stressful as being interviewed. I liked Amy!— The Frockery (@frockery) July 13, 2016
