9 Real-Life Horrendous (but Hilarious) Job Interview Horror Stories

Many of us have experienced at least one bad job interview where we left a less-than-stellar impression on the interviewer. And hey, it happens. Sometimes you’re nervous; other times you might not have enough experience in these situations to feel comfortable. Whatever the case, most, if not all, of us have experienced those moments where we walked out of the office feeling deflated or even mortified.
