Interview "No-No's" -for BOSSES

We've all seen lists of things you should never say if you're trying to get a job, but what about if you're looking to give someone a job?

Reddit users have been flocking to a new group that lets job-seekers share the worst things they heard from interviewers. Do any of these sound like deal-breakers?

"At one of my first interviews after college I was asked how available I was to work way more hours than had been advertised for no additional pay."

"I forget the actual wording, but he said something about how everyone who worked there hated him and was out to get him, and he wanted to make sure I would take his side."

"One of the interviewers noticed I had a thick southern accent and asked where I was from. I said Kentucky, and he asked me if it was true that a lot of people from there marry their cousins and if anyone in my family had done that. He was dead serious and wouldn’t move on until I answered."

"She asked me who I voted for. 'Isn’t that illegal?' I asked.  'You tell me and you’ll start tomorrow.' I just left after that comment."

Soooooooooooo~
