Bad interview experiences are not at all uncommon and many of you may have shown up for an interview that didn’t go as well as expected. Whether it’s being late for your interview, not being able to answer questions properly, or wearing the wrong outfit, there are many ways to ruin an interview. However, a lady in the United States has a lasting memory of an interview that went wrong in a way none of you would have even imagined. She accidentally sent embarrassing footage of herself mocking interview questions to her potential employer. She has now posted the same video on her TikTok account for everyone to see her gaffe.
Chaylene Martinez had applied for a flight attendant position with SkyWest Airlines. The virtual interview required her to answer a question and send it as a recording to the company. However, Chaylene called a friend to help answer the question, unaware that the camera had already started rolling. To make matters worse, she had to submit this recording because no second attempts were allowed. The video was later shared on other social media platforms.
During a voice call with her friend, she described the interview question as the “cheepiest” and “dumbest” question she had heard in her life. She was asked to express her opinion on SkyWest’s corporate culture and how it resonated with her. Having no idea she was on tap, she went on to say, “At work we just talked about mission statements – you know how every company has a mission statement? So either way, I was going to say…but I just can’t phrase this properly and you have to register yourself saying it, it’s so awkward.”
Soon she realized that the video was recording and she exclaimed “oh no” with a worried look on her face. She went on to say that she was sorry and didn’t know the recording had already started. She shared the clip with the caption “definitely won’t get the job”. Sorry, Skywest’. Later, in a follow-up video, she even said that her current employer saw the video and learned that she was looking for a job change.
