THE INTERVIEW

Andrew has an interview for an administration position at an open place office. The interview is at 10:30am; Andrew arrived at 10:15am but was called into the manager?s office after waiting for 30mins.

Dave ? The Manager

Andrew ? Potential employee

Sarah ? the secretary

Anne ? sales administrator

Chris ? book keeper

Kate ? team leader

OPENING SCENE

Andrew sits down at the desk opposite Dave who is swivelling back and forth in his executive chair

Dave: Good morning, how are you?

Andrew: I am fine thank you

Dave: You weren?t late were you?

Andrew: No I was 15mins early

Dave:

(Leans back in his chair)

That?s good I hate late people, I am the manager so it?s fine if I am late

Andrew: That?s good for you, I think

Dave: Okay let?s start then, why did you apply for this position.

Andrew: I have a lot of experience in administrational duties and I feel the skills I have could help in this position

Dave: I will decide that

Andrew: Fine

Dave: Did I hear correctly when you said you have experience? Keep in mind that this is a useless question, I heard you and I also have your CV in front of me

Andrew: Umm yes I did

Dave: Well you seem to have desirable experience and qualifications, when would you like to start?

Andrew:

(Surprised)

Is that it? No more questions?

Dave: Yeah most managers pad it out, I don?t do that I usually know the person I am going to hire. I don?t really use your CV?s I just look at how you look and speak. So when do you want to start?

Andrew: Right away if you like

Dave: That?s the right thing to say, if you said anything other than right away I would have told you to go home and wait for my call which you would have been waiting for an eternity

Andrew:

(He gets out his pad and pen)

Well it?s lucky I didn?t say that, what do I need to know before I start?

Dave: There is a lot of partiality here; I love favouritism and nepotism right now you?re not my favourite person because you live in Surrey, if the guy before you did not come from Essex you wouldn?t have this job

Andrew: I can?t help that

Dave: I also hate people who argue with me, even when I am wrong do not think to point it out, but if I mess up don?t be surprised if I blame you

Andrew: I will try and remember that

Dave: The most important thing is I love people sucking up to me; there is nothing better than employees kissing my arse.

(He snaps his fingers to his secretary)

Sarah, black coffee right now, 1 sugar strong chop-chop, don?t keep me waiting

Sarah: Right away sir

She brings the coffee to Dave; he takes a sip and then spits it out

Dave: What is this? Are you kidding me? Get me a proper coffee right now

Sarah:

(Apologizing profusely)

Sorry sir, I will get another one for you right away

Dave:

(Turns back to Andrew)

See that, the coffee was fine but she needs her job

Andrew:

(He nods, unable to speak for shock)

Dave:

(Oblivious to Andrew?s reaction)

Finally there is a lot of bad rivalry and strong competition in this company which has escalated into backstabbing and loads of snitching.

Andrew:

(Confused)

Is that good for the company?

Dave: I encourage it, nothing gives a better work atmosphere than loads of people working in the same room who hate each other, but are contractually obliged to see each other every day.

Andrew: Really wouldn?t that hurt the company

Dave: Nobody talks to each other so they all get on with their work, nobody skives or takes day?s off because they are scared they?ll get sacked. It?s amazing

Andrew: Good point

Dave: Well I think that?s all you need to know you can leave now, how about starting tomorrow 9am.

Andrew: That?s great, thank you very much for this opportunity

Dave: That?s all right, see you tomorrow

Andrew leaves the office and the building

SCENE 2

Dave walks into the open-plan office floor

Dave: Hello everyone, your attention please.

(The room goes quiet)

I have hired another administrator for this floor

Anne: We don?t really need anyone else to hate 25 people keep us happy.

Chris: Shut up Anne, what do you know? I thought we aren?t allowed food or drink in the office what?s that Coke can doing at your desk.

Anne: Don?t start Chris, taking another 15mins break isn?t allowed you know.

Kate:

(Talking over the two)

What?s he like Dave?

Dave:

(Everyone quiets down when Dave starts to talk)

I wasn?t going to hire him but he begged me so much with this massive sob story something about he is about to lose his house or what not I had to take pity on him.

Chris: He sounds like a right idiot.

Dave: Yes, I think he is mentally challenged; he went blank at one stage and just nodded to me when I asked him a question

Anne: Well if he isn?t a show-off I think we can just barely tolerate him.

Chris: Speak for yourself

Dave:

(Claps his hands)

Alright then everybody get back to work

Grumbling they all walk back to their desks
