I once went for an interview with a large Japanese company whose name starts with "H" and ends in "i" but I won't mention their actual name.

The interview started with them presenting me with a programming and general IT knowledge test. I completed it quicker than the time allocated so the interviewing guy said he'd take me on a tour of the office as the manager for the next part of the interview wasn't ready yet and someone would have checked my test by the time we got back.

The office was like a scene from a slave galley although without the drummer and guys with whips. Dull, grey, dirty windows, miserable looking staff who looked scared to talk to me.

When I got back the manager was very excited, "no-one ever got 100% on this test before".

He asked me to sit down and asked if I wanted tea or coffee. I said, "No thanks, I won't have time to drink it."

"What's that? no, we'll be a while while we discuss your position and salary here."

"Exactly, I'm leaving now. This place is too depressing to work in."

"But think of what you're missing out on!"

"It's your loss, actually. Where do I pick up my travel expenses? Goodbye."

...aah, the good old days when they would pay you to come to an interview!
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
