You got the interview… now here’s what NOT to say!
Negative comments about your current or past employers and co-workers.
Requests for special hours or equipment unless you have a handicap that necessitates special accommodations.
Avoid initiating salary discussions or making demands in the early interview stages.
Asking about vacation days, sick days or holidays.
Don't give a list of the things you won't do.
Asking, "What is it your company does again?"
"I don't know, I just saw your ad and I thought I'd give this a try."
"I don't have any negative points."
Avoid argumentative statements.
No whining or complaining.
Do not make dishonest or misleading statements.
It goes without saying that slang and expletives should not be used.
Derogatory remarks about a particular gender, race or nationality are out of line.
