Feb 16, 2012 Ok,As an ER Coordinator, I have seen a few things off in interviews, but DEAR GOD, who hurt you so?It almost sounds like a vent!I always just feel sorry for the single mom in jeans who would be wearing dress pants if she could have afforded them, if I had put up a "red flag" I would have turned down one heck of a ER Tech, who is now a ER RN, One of "OUR," not "My" best on staff.Very few people will bother to ask why someone is dressed inappropriately. When I re-entered nursing and had to do the interview thing again I went to a thrift shop and bought two outfits for under $10. There is nothing about his list that I haven't read in countless interview tips articles and from Hiring Managers here on allnurses. For you to say it doesn't matter because it doesn't matter to you may cause someone to lose their chance for a job.The way the economy is -- it could be a very long time before that person gets another chance at it, and that makes it very un-compassionate advice.
