I had the second interview this morning. I don't feel as optimistic as I did last week. They had two, yeah a whole two, questions for me. One was a procedural question so, no problem. It was the other question I wasn't too thrilled with.
"You have a family?" (Make that two questions.)
"Will that interfere with your job, your child care and all?"
Is it me or is that a WTF question? Legally, I don't think they can ask about family but when one is in need of a job...
Would they have asked a man that question?
How did they think I would answer, "Well hell, my babysitter calls out at the last minute at least twice a week and I have no Plan B. Yeah, if you hire me you're pretty much screwed."
Come on! You have my resume right in front of you, you have a glowing recommendation from my boss of twelve damn years. I am a knowledgeable, professional person and you ask me a dumb question like that??
For the record, I have excellent child care with two back ups. In the last ten years I have missed work one time due to child care issues.
I think I may be cruising the unemployment line a bit longer what with that whole mother thing I've got going on.
