The person who has 'been unemployed for a while' doesn't show up on time for job interview. He's unemployed! There's nowhere else he has to go.
Oddly we gave him a second chance, hired him and he flaked out.
Another fellow's answer to hiding his lack of knowledge was that he was 'old school', and tried to use dos editing commands editting the hosts table in vi. Maybe when our network crashed we would have figured he wasn't working out.
Also said he had 4 cars, all of which he worked on himself. Then didn't show up to work one day, claiming he had 'car problems' - well what happened to the other 3 cars?
His boast that impressed HR? he had setup by himself a 'server' at his previous job. Imagine, a guy that could put together one of them 'newfangled thangs'!
