A reasonable amount of intelligence, an enormous amount of ambition to succeed, an competitive nature, a strong work ethic, and an ability to be very focused. If you dont truly have all of these, you'll do yourself a favor by not trying to show it in an interview, becasue without these things, you will fail in our business.

What do you think they look for when they interview you? If you ask a very general question, you will get at best a very general answer....Possibly a rude answer....

Either that or some dumbass, like Potatoman, will fall for your fake questions and actually try to answer them.

Your a freakin idiot. Most times I have the good sense to ignore you, but once in a while, I just cant resist. How the f*ck do you know whether the guy is serious or not? Are you his mother or something? Go sell some EIA's to some old lady you dick

You will forever be known as the idiot that fell for the phony questions. Thanks for the emotional reaction. I own you, Potatoman.

They want to make sure you are attentive to details.  Basically, they want to see that you craddle the balls when assuming the kneeling position.  Because if not, what a waste your hands are.

In your dreams Bibby Hill. Like I said, get a life.
I'd bet money that you live with your parents, and the part of your weekend that isnt spent on this board, is spent tying them up and torturing them.
This conversation is over, as of now. I've got better things to do than respond to whatever bullsh*t you'll post next to rile me up. Like I said, get a life.

Yep, Hull owns prato: The dialogue that proceeded is the answer to the bogus interview question...know it/learn it/live it.

Well put, I'm hiring trainees for my own business, and find this comment to be a useful summary of what's important.
As for Bobby Hull, I read in previous posts that he acts this way because he has a small penis. So don't take him seriously, better to feel sorry for Bobbie - he apparently just feels insecure about his unit, of diminuitive nature thereof.

It's awfully hard to top a "small penis" comment. Nice job.

He's still a freakin idiot. But you're correct coolshoos, small penis, and we should feel sorry for him. He spends too much time here.
Alphamale, might be BobbyHill in drag.

You've already been shamed and yet chose to engage another who is superior to you...chose your battles wisely sweetpea.
You were baited, chose to chew the chum and were put on the stringer for others to observe.  You are prey to all predators who chose to engage...you're not worth my unrelenting will to destroy you and advise you to recognize that reality: I can cash your check...now go back to the card table and finish your jello - the adults are talking.
