I was at a fast food restaurant this week (eating really-bad-for-me food). In the dining area the manager was interviewing job applicants and I could hear everything they were saying.
It has been many years since I took a human resources class, but I am pretty sure you CAN’T ask the following questions in an interview:
1. How many kids do you have?
2. Will this job interfere with you taking care of your kids?
3. Do you drink?
I am glad I wasn’t the one being interviewed. My answers would have been: “None of your business”, “I plan on bringing my kids to work”, and “I don’t drink, but if I have to work for you I am sure I will have to start drinking”.
