Employment law firm Thomas Mansfield asked graduates from 20 British universities to share the most bizarre and offensive things they’ve ever been asked whilst applying for jobs.
Many of the women’s responses show that sexism is very much alive some workplaces.
'Do you get PMT?'
'What do you think about dating someone in the office?'
'Are you planning on having children soon?'
'Can you wear more make up next time?'
'Can you flirt with the customers to make them stay longer?'
Julie Goodway, a lawyer at the firm, told The Independent: “Unfortunately the experience of those surveyed are not one-offs. We are often asked how interviewees should respond to questions like these.”
She says that such questioning can amount to sex discrimination if it is unlikely that male candidates will be asked such questions.
