Funny Recruiting Experiences

Last year I was out on the road recruiting for candidates to staff our new uranium mine in Wyoming and thought it would be fun to share some of the funny and interesting things candidates said or did.

I received a phone message where the gentleman did not leave his name but rambled on about how he heard about the job. When he got to the end of his message, he instructed me to look at the caller ID on my phone to get his number and call him back…

I was interviewing a gentleman and a few minutes in, he asked to be excused to go to the bathroom.  I don’t know whether he had a medical problem or not but when he returned, after about five minutes, he proclaimed with a big grin on his face “Whew! That felt good!”…

I spoke with a young man and usually open my interviews with the question “What do you know about Ur-Energy?” (the name of my company – I like to see if they did any preparation work).  He looked at me funny and asked “Why the hell do you want to know about my energy?”…

Makes you wonder.
