Last month I have attended an interview. Initial interview was done through phone by HR executive. When i went to the office, I was interviewed by 4 people, one after other. Out of these 5 people 3 of them asked questions about how I am going to manage my daughter. I felt irritated when the director of the company interviewed at the end. She asked these questions:
How I am going to manage my daughter if I come to work?
When I am planning my next baby?
If some emergency comes who will take care of the daughter?
If we call my in-laws or parents to stay here during emergencies, how much time they will take to reach?
Not a single technical question. I refused to accept their offer. I couldn’t give my piece of mind to them as we are, in a way, customer to them.
Today I read this article.
Will they ask the same questions to my husband or any other man during interview? Why only women? And I was advised by some of my relatives that I should come back from office early so that I can finish other chores at home before sleep. I’ll stop here as these thoughts makes my blood boil.
