do you usually wear sneakers to interviews?

so i had an interview with a big agency yesterday. i didn't really know what i was doing there, but i figured i'd give it a shot. it was for an assistant to a tv/news agent. whatever that means.


she: where do you see yourself in five years?
i: i can't answer that question

she: do you think you dressed appropriately for an interview?
i: well, i didn't want to tip anyone off at my job.

she: what did you do to prepare for this interview.
i: uh. nothing, really.

she: do you want this job?
i: not really.

what's hilarious is, after all her bitchy questions and my rude answers, she still seemed rather willing to offer me the job. i didn't even ask what the salary was.

just so you all don't think i'm a horrible person, i have three other interviews for jobs i'm way more psyched about coming up, so i was over this idea before i even got there. the person who interviewed me was really unpleasant. everyone there was dressed a little too nicely for my liking. the job was mainly administrative and including getting the agent her lunch and tea--uh, no fucking thank you. and the kicker: 930-730/8pm. who would want this job?
