Additional Red Flags That Scream ‘Don’t Hire This Person’

Here are more red flags that scream, ‘Don’t Hire This Person’. My previous blog listed ten red flags. If you missed it, scroll down.  As a public service for hiring managers, I add these additional red flags that say, “Don’t hire this person.”

The candidate’s references are all in prison.

  1. The candidate is wearing a suicide bomber vest.
  2. The candidate asks to take a selfie with you.
  3. One of the candidate’s jobs was in the laundry at the state penitentiary for 20 years.
  4. The candidate’s name and the name of a school attended are misspelled on the resume.
  5. The candidate’s resume is signed in blood.
  6. The candidate lights up a cigar and puts her/his feet up on your desk.
  7. The candidate carves initials into your desk.
  8. The candidate says she/he is glad to finally meet you in person after stalking you for years.
  9. The candidate takes a drink from a flask during the interview.

I hope this helps in making the right choice for hire.
