New Hire Interviews Herself for HR Position

Due to a rare set of circumstances, Lisa interviewed herself for the new HR Manager position. At the time, the Detroit office was without any Human Resources Department so no one else was qualified to do it.

But the interview didn't go as smoothly as you might expect. Lisa was disappointed in some of the answers she gave to standard interview questions. When asked how it went, Lisa told reporters, "She went on and on and on about her strengths but couldn't name a single weakness, like, say, talking to yourself in an interview room. Being crazy is probably a weakness at Widgets Corp LLC, Inc."

Obviously, Lisa did well enough to recover and get the job offer. Probably by answering "Why should I hire you?" with "Because we have a mortgage payment due in three weeks."
