Demanding job candidate sends rude messages to employer

While most job candidates try their best to be polite and courteous in front of their potential hirers, one particular applicant in Singapore does not seem to care if he offended his reviewer at all.

According to a Stomp contributor, the candidate was rude in text messages and demanded to be given directions to the interview.

The candidate also did not bother to watch his grammar and spelling while typing the messages to his potential employer.

In the end, the interview was called off as the employer felt that the applicant's rude behaviour was not something he could put up with.

Here is the original contribution posted on Stomp:

A Stomp contributor was surprised to see that a candidate who was contacted for a job interview replied to the potential employer through text messages in broken English, in which he demanded to know the directions to the office.

Stomp contributor K wondered if this was how members of the younger generation responded to potential employers.

K elaborates:

"Is this how one talks when trying to arrange an interview with a potential employer?

"Is it alright to use such bad English and demand to be taught how to go to a certain place?

"Is this how the younger generation goes for an interview?"
