Things not to say during an interview

Interviewer look for a candidate qualified to do the job, willing to do the job, able to fit in with the corporate culture. The following things can send an alarm to the interviewer that you may not meet some of these criteria.

  1. Negative comments about current or past employers and co-workers 
    You risk appearing as an employee with a "management problem".
  2. Initiating salary discussions or making demands in the early in the interview.
    It is best to let the employer initiate salary discussions. When the topic comes up, give a range or ask what the set as the range for the position.
  3. Asking about benefits and vacation and sick days
    This makes you appear more interested in time off rather than doing the job itself.
  4. Giving a list of the things you will not do
    Telling an interviewer that you don't do things like filing or working overtime will make them question your commitment to the job. Apply only for positions that are appropriate for you and understand that tasks may not always be enjoyable.
