Biggest Red Flags People Got During Job Interviews

Not all jobs are made the same. Looking for a job can be a dramatic adventure fraught with personal doubt and harsh self evaluation. It's a moment that inspires many painfully relatable job interview memes. Honestly it's weird that we have to name our own value as people and jockey with employers who would like nothing more than to get as much work out of us as possible for the least amount of compensation possible. Some jobs are definitely better than others, and it's apparent during the interview process. A lot of them are worth a "screw this, I'm out."
