Two Popular Job Interview Questions

DETROIT (WWJ) – Two interview questions you’re likely to get if you’re looking for a job and they might have hidden undertones.

Allison and Taylor, a firm in Rochester that does reference checks for corporate America, says the warning is clear: Job candidates should think twice before embellishing employment history or their performance.

The firm said employers are more eager to dig deeper into background checks these days because they have so many candidates from which to choose.
