Ask what job you’re interviewing for

This sounds obvious, but it can happen, especially when you’re running between interviews. A better way to structure this question would be to ask what a typical work day looks like.


Say negative things about yourself

Only do this if you can explain how you will change them


Ask about the drug test

If you really need to do this out of nervousness, make sure to ask/tell your interviewer why you are doing it before you actually do it. That way you at least won’t look as disrespectful. It’s better just to avoid this though.


Bring your kids

Or your parents. Just don’t.
