Interviewer cried during interview

  1. 1 Today I went on an interview and the lady that interviewed starting crying while talking about her clients. I was very moved by her emotions and glad that she truly cares about these clients. I was just a little shocked, and didn't really know what to say. Anyone else cry or either had the interviewer cry during an interview?

    I'm sure it was somewhat embarrassing to her. However, the way you reacted - discreet and professional, understanding and compassionate - will probably do a lot to help you get the job.

    Good luck!

    She apologized for crying. I told her it was fine.
    I get emotional when talking about some of my previous patients too. I just know how to modulate my emotions while interviewing.

    Hmm. IDK. I kinda wonder if she was under incredible stress. Hopefully she didn't cry because you seemed like a nice person and there is nobody else in that place who she can confide in...

    BTW, LoveJoy, you and I are both "Advocates" of something, aren't we?!

    First I thought it was by how many years you had been on this board, but it's not. Hmmm. One of the mods/staff commented somewhere that the idea behind those would be soon revealed.

    i had a boss cry in front of me, one time.
    (i think i made her cry, but that's another story.)
    boss became profusely embarrassed and apologetic.
    i called her a wuss.
    (no i didn't- hahahaha).
    i just stood there with a sympathetic look on my face, then redirected conversation to issue at hand.

    it takes all kinds...
    and it has taken me awhile to appreciate that.

    No....but I would find it unprofessionall...maybe it's just a personal thing...I don't do crying very well.

    I probably would have cried with her. I hate to see people cry!

    Sorry - thread hijack

    I kinda thought it was related to how many years you had been on the board too - what made you decide it wasn't? Seems everyone is trying to figure this out and the mods aren't ready to spill the beans (to busy frying bigger fish ). Maybe it is by how many posts you have had??? I'm an advocate too and I advocate for figuring this little mystery out.
