        Turns up late or no show.

        I did this a few times for permie roles but never for a contract role.

        Subconscious i think, i never really wanted the roles cause they were permie, heart wasn't in it.

        Once i got stuck in some really bad morning rush hour traffic on the way to the interview, so was going to be really late for it, so I just turned the car around and went back home. At least i tried

            Anyone wearing a tie.

            One of my clients is very casual to say the least. I often wear jeans and a hoodie in the office and I'm one of the most overdressed people there.

            Been co-interviewing for one role recently with the Head of IT and he was wearing shorts and flip flops for one interview.

              I really don't like casual wear in the office. Flip flops especially so. I don't like flip flops generally, as they are so uncomfortable, and most people have horrible feet that I simply don't want to see.

              Smart-casual, fine. But looking like you just rolled out of bed, off the beach, out the bar? No.

                  I think I've found the lady that used to give me snotty looks if I wore shorts on hot days.

                    A funny handshake, or ties/badges that link them to society/organisations that try to encourage deals to be kept in house. I want people based on their skills at doing the job, not on who they know.
