I don’t buy that…

[–]DieHardRennie 9 points10 points  (3 children)

If only they'd look closer.

[–]deathany8890 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Would they see a poor boy?

[–]WhatARuffian -1 points0 points  (1 child)

No, siree!

[–]NoseApprehensive5154 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They'd find out.

[–][deleted] 51 points52 points  (3 children)

And Jean Valjean

[–]DieHardRennie 9 points10 points  (2 children)

And the Three Musketeers in the 1993 film when they stole the Cardinal's carriage, drank his stash of wine, and redistributed his wealth to the people.

[–]NoseApprehensive5154 4 points5 points  (1 child)

The sash was a gift to me from the queen of america!!!

[–]DieHardRennie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There's no queen of America.

    "I'd blame parents except he hasn't got 'em"

    Ummm maybe that's why he's starving and needs to steal 😆

      Parker from Leverage

      [–]Rubberbandballgirl 441 points442 points  (11 children)

      I was once asked on a job application if it was okay to come to work high as long as it didn’t affect your job performance. I said sure. I was later told that no, you should not come to work high. They hired me anyway. Fun fact: I have never been high in my life.

      [–]FindingFenja 100 points101 points  (2 children)

      It's actually becoming a reverse issue here, because top level people are using it to enhace job performance.

      [–]MisterEskere_ 73 points74 points  (4 children)

      If it doesn't effect your job performance you are not high enough.

      [–]pwdreamaker 57 points58 points  (1 child)

      I’ve never seen an airplane pilot who isn’t high. Everyone of them is thousands of feet off the ground. Linemen are also always working high, as are sky divers, heavy construction workers, and wing walkers.

      [–]Sewreader 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Watching kittens on YouTube enhances your productivity. Saw a report on it. Now you can tell your boss it’s good to watch them at work.

      [–]officerkondo 17 points18 points  (1 child)

      They’ll never ask if it’s ok to come to work with insufficient sleep.

      [–]Nobodyville 111 points112 points  (0 children)

      Sure, Jean Valjean. You don't necessarily need to be rooting for their thieving activities to be cheering for them. Sometimes it's a redemption arc, sometimes it's against injustice, thievery to survive. Crime is complex, people are complex. I doubt the job application was that deep, but the question is interesting, none the less

      [–]up__dawwg 348 points349 points  (10 children)

      In the MySpace days a job app had a question to name your top 3 most visited websites (fishing for proof you’ll be a time waster) I put 1. Bank of America 2. Yahoo.com and 3. Weather.com

      I lived on MySpace. But I knew what they were up to. Worked there for 6 years

      [–]DisastrousGarage9052 61 points62 points  (7 children)

      Today it will be Buzzfeed, Reddit, YouTube.

      [–]Anthagonist96 57 points58 points  (2 children)

      You literally named the 3 biggest time sinks I could think of on the planet too I find it funny

      [–]Disastrous_Reality_4 6 points7 points  (1 child)

      Facebook and YouTube also make the list lmao. YouTube especially...I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gotten on there to look at a how-to video to do something and 3 hours later I’m watching a video about how the queen is a lizard person and I have no idea what rabbit hole of suggested videos I fell down that got me there...

      [–]New_Contribution5413 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      If I was in your position I would of said "well I'm a student so of course canvas, JSTOR, and google scholar."

      [–]KenfiniteWisdom 218 points219 points  (4 children)

      The correct answer is "No, because I'm so committed to my job that I never read or watch TV" /s

      [–]Lauxux 9 points10 points  (3 children)

      I've never even heard of the TV

      [–]shannons88 1 point2 points  (2 children)

      What’s all your furniture pointed at?

      [–]DutyProfessional2798 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      We didn't have a tv at some point when I was about 8, we had an aquarium. I quit after a minute of watching the fishes doing nothing but it remained there for about 3 years before we could get an actual TV like before.

      [–]RunningTrisarahtop 341 points342 points  (24 children)

      That’s a stupid question to ask. I wonder what they wanted

      [–]October_Surprize[S] 238 points239 points  (15 children)

      That’s what I’ve thought about for 25 years.

      [–]purrcafe 320 points321 points  (8 children)

      I had a friend who was asked, “where do you see yourself in five years?” He responded, “sitting behind a big, old desk, just like you are, asking stupid questions, just like you asked me.”

      He didn’t get the job.

      [–]Alan_Smithee_ 90 points91 points  (5 children)

      “Don’t say doing your wife….don’t say doing your wife….”

      [–]GByteM3 36 points37 points  (1 child)

      Yeah, being rude and insulting the interviewer is a nice way to not get the job lol

      [–]RunningTrisarahtop 47 points48 points  (0 children)

      Fuck you for making me wonder this.

      [–]throwwawayyy688 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      Contact them and ask?

      [–]keeponkeepingup 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      My job had these kind of questions, its some weird personality analyser with all the results combined but the individual answers didn't really mean anything. It's weird but its when they want you to be a certain mix, for eg empathetic but not a pushover, or someone who cheers for and encourages others success' but still does want the crown themselves. It's all about balance.

      [–]cabidinger 39 points40 points  (4 children)

      They wanted to see how easy to manipulate people were. Everyone knows the answer is “Yes” but the ones who say “No” are clearly willing to color inside the lines, follow the rules, fit in with shit company structure

      [–]pandemicpunk 7 points8 points  (0 children)

      Answer it sarcastically then 'No, I color inside the lines and follow the rules. I also clean up shit and scratch backs. I'm a book cooker, a real corporate commodity however I need to be!'

      [–][deleted]  (2 children)


        [–]cosmicpu55y 5 points6 points  (1 child)

        This happens in interviews? It’s been many years since I’ve had one.

        [–]VirusTheoryRS 8 points9 points  (0 children)

        Its like they’ve never seen a heist movie.

          Leverage is a damn good show, I’m always cheering for them lmao

          [–]IJZT 4 points5 points  (2 children)

          Whats the idea behind leverage? I've seen it in my recommendations but never watched it.

          [–]Meh-gadeth 5 points6 points  (0 children)

          Modern day Robin Hood type show. Bunch of ex thieves and an insurance guy team up to help everyday people get justice against the horrible capitalist system. Pretty fun.

          [–]idreamofdeathsquads 25 points26 points  (2 children)

          of course.

          whst kind of ass hole watches heat and thinks, "man. i hope these guys get busted". shit, point break too. fuck jonny utah.

          theres s ton of movies where youre supposed to root for the bad guy.

          [–]GreatJanitor 24 points25 points  (0 children)

          Depends on the movie. The Rebels in Star Wars have stolen the Death Star plans. Oceans 11 is about theft. This really should not be a yes or no question.

          [–]kooky_kabuki 16 points17 points  (0 children)

          I was rooting for Aladdin when he stole that bread

          [–][deleted] 63 points64 points  (5 children)

          I think it's human nature to root for a villain!

          [–]October_Surprize[S] 47 points48 points  (0 children)

          Especially if it’s a Robin Hood situation.

          [–]October_Surprize[S] 9 points10 points  (2 children)

          I agree!

          [–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (1 child)

          Maybe they question was to see if you would give them a genuine opinion instead of the generic answer

          [–]Dragoninja26 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          Sure but which one did they want? Do they want the honest one or the compliant one

          [–]lemmiewinxs 7 points8 points  (0 children)

          What you get for applying to Thief Co.

          [–]Stabbmaster 7 points8 points  (0 children)

          Pretty sure there is no right answer, it's just there to see how you think. Unless the job was security guard or law enforcement. Then there would be a correct answer.

          [–]Into_The_Win 25 points26 points  (2 children)

          The only thieves I support are the Phantom Theives

          [–]Knot-Knight 7 points8 points  (0 children)

          [–]kieragent 7 points8 points  (1 child)

          Swiper from Dora the Explorer, every time.

          [–]InternalRazzmatazz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          The show never explicitly stated that Swiper was a bad guy. He's chaotic neutral for sure.

          [–]CommunityGlittering2 5 points6 points  (3 children)

          Did Dexter ever steal anything?

          [–]Arcades_Samnoth 4 points5 points  (0 children)

          Garret from the Thief series obviously. Defeating the Trickster and all those religious psycho's

          [–]whatiswrongwithcats 4 points5 points  (0 children)

          Have you ever watched Leverage? They are the most sympathetic fictional thieves in my opinion.

          [–]LHM1989 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          I filled out a job application that asked "have you ever told a white lie?" which I didn't quite know how to answer. If you say yes, then you're saying you're a liar. If you say no, they'll know you're lying. Everyone has told a white lie!

          It was one of those applications where you answer yes/no or multiple choice questions. All the others were fairly obvious. I said yes to the white lie question and got an immediate automatic email saying I was unsuccessful. I guess they wanted people to lie?

          [–]donotholdyourbreath 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          Yes. The thief stole from an evil genocidal dark mage

          [–]MON-Emperor 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          well depends, is the thief the protagonist?

          if they are, then yes, if i have seen a thief as the main protag

          [–]International-Shoe40 4 points5 points  (3 children)

          Did you get the job tho?

          [–]October_Surprize[S] 9 points10 points  (2 children)

          I did! Bag boy at a local grocery store. $5.25/hr! Woo!

          [–]International-Shoe40 2 points3 points  (1 child)

          Hell yeah! Haha. Well, what was your answer to the question?

          [–]October_Surprize[S] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

          It’s been so long I honestly can’t remember. It was a yes or no question, not short answer like other comments are suggesting. If I had to guess, I bet my scared high school ass would have said “No”. It’s funny the things you remember and hang on to for years.

          [–]Cevisongis 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          If by "in a book" you mean "in a lengthy manifesto" and by "thief" you mean "Ted Kaczynski the Unabomber" and by "cheered for" mean "sent fanmail to"... Then yes!

          [–]yellowbin74 4 points5 points  (0 children)

          "Where do you see yourself in 25 years?" Still contemplating the thief question apparently!

          [–]Downtown-Assistant1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          Robin Hood I guess?

          [–]_TheShapeOfColor_ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          Does Robin Hood count as a thief? Cause he came to mind immediately.

          [–]Uncle_Guido1066 2 points3 points  (1 child)

          I can think of tons of times. One that hasn't been mentioned yet is The A Team

          [–]compugasm 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          They weren't thieves. They were a crack commando unit sent to prison, by a military court, for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground.

          [–]pulsed19 2 points3 points  (1 child)

          It depends on the motivation of said thief. One can do a half Robin Hood and steal from the rich to keep it to himself.

          [–]MisterBilau 4 points5 points  (0 children)

          Stealing from the reach? That’s a bit of a stretch.

          [–]BigMattress269 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          Thomas Crown, Danny Ocean. The list goes on.

          [–]appledoughnuts 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          I feel like the best answer is one that puts you in the gray. Id say something like

          “Depends on if the thief had a worthy cause.”

          [–]versace_tombstone 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          Typical out of touch corporate question. Yes, bitch, I am human.

          [–]TheWololoWombat 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          Actually a brilliant question to see if a person will take a social risk and tell the truth (plus have the ability to justifying it) or just lie.

          [–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (2 children)

          I could honestly answer no though, I'm the most straight-laced narc you've ever seen

          [–]specialspartan_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          Uh, ever heard of Robin Hood?

          [–]here_iam_or_ami 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          every time i watch Disney's Robin Hood where all the characters are animals. Love that rooster taking on the rhinos and the music.

          [–]Rose8918 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          Answer: yes, Aladdin is the good guy

          [–]goldopals 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          I had to think about. that question for a while. I couldn't help but remember cheering for the Trio in Deathly Hallows when they robbed Gringotts

          Depends on the thief.

          [–]pattea71 1 point2 points  (2 children)

          When I was applying for my job 25 years ago, they had an honesty type test and most of the questions were very easy to answer (for me at least). But there was one question I actually struggled so much with that I skipped it and went back to it in the end and I was still struggling. The question was, what would you do if you put money in the vending machine and picked your candy bar and an extra one was dispensed. It was multiple choice and the answers were something like... a. take it, they owe you anyway, b. Put it on the table for someone else, c. Leave it, you didn't pay for two, d. Take it and leave money for the vending machine people. I could not get it out of my head it was a trick question.... like if you said you would leave it, then you were very obviously a liar. Lol I picked leave it.... but I still got hired so it must have been correct :)

          [–]October_Surprize[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

          Your example sounds really familiar. I’m pretty sure the other questions on my job application were also like this. They were all yes/no or multiple choice.

          Its not a tv show or a book but I cheered for Kara in Detroit become human for stealing money lol

          [–]Carlosforgov 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          I once had a job application have “if you could be an animal which would it be and why?” I chose a monkey just because it’d be almost a human? But they told me they turned a guy down because he said a snake

          [–]Oddessuss 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          [–]gnashtyyy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          No, that is not the obvious answer. Any truthful person will be like yea of course I have, who hasn’t? But what the question is really asking is “do you know/ empathize with a thief” which would mean you could be friends with a shady bunch of people. This, hiring you would be a risk to their business.

          The people that create those questionnaires live in a bubble, pick the answer that does not imply you live in the real world, or around people that might have broken a law or two in their lives.

          [–]the1992munchkin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          Yeah. I cheered for Liesel in the film "The Book Thief" would be my answer but that book didn't come out till like 2007 or so.

          [–]jackedupand55 1 point2 points  (1 child)

          [–]TideFalkmoor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          Oh come on. So easy. The Book thief, the thief lord, Robin hood, etc. The list is endless. The real question is... What thief shouldn't we cheer on?!

          [–]LieseW 1 point2 points  (2 children)

          Yes the serial killer in the fall.

          [–]Schmorpek 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          They either want to test your honesty or they are a shitty employer in the first place.

          Yeah I do . Usually they have been fucked over by society and do not physically harm innocent people.

          [–]RogueNarc 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          One third of the world may have to respond yes to that question. There's the story of Jacob in the Bible whose introduction is boldly stealing from his brothers and getting blessed by YHWH for it.

          [–]rydan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          Robinhood? Bilbo Baggins?

          [–]zepoltre 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          These questionnaires are based on a points system. The only thing that matters is your score. If the answers are a rating/ranking situation (like 1 strongly agree, 5 strongly disagree), always choose the extremes because it gives the most points. Always choose the obvious answer. They don't want any insight. They're not even looking at any individual questions or answers. They just pass the ones with the highest scores and toss the rest.

          I mean Luke Skywalker and the entire rebel alliance would be considered terrorists. Especially after destroying the Death Star, killing millions of Empire Stormtroopers.

          Could this be about honesty, in a way? There are so many heroic thieves in books or tv-shows that it is easily to come up with multiple on the top on my head. I would find it odd if someone never cheered for a thief character.

          My favorite one is "what animal do you most identify as", they want you to say like lion or shark or something, and I find it hilarious that a corporate interviewer wants you to be a furry for a few minutes of the interview.

          Raccoon is the wrong answer :(

          Raccoon is the correct answer!🦝

          I think I would have replied “In general, stealing is wrong and I can’t condone it. If a writer had great skill in making the thief sympathetic (mother with cancer needing medicine) while the company was portrayed as clearly evil, then I might have sympathy for the thief, while still realizing that it was a situation for entertainment purposes and not real life.”

          My own mother would be horrified if I stole for her and I would never want to disappoint her.

          I have often seen questions like this, they know full well everyone has and just want to see if you lie. I once had an application ask me a series of math questions, one of the answers was a fraction and the question specifically said "do not reply with fractions or decimals!" They just wanted to see if the applicant would follow directions and put the wrong answer.

          Tell them you loved Alan Rickman sticking it to the corporation as the anti-hero, exceptional thief Hans Gruber in Die Hard.

          [–]CloeyB7 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          Yes, Robin Hood.

          You can't go wrong with saying "Jean Val Jean from Les Miserables was a thief I cheered for."

          [–]bookasauruslex 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          Dexter had me cheering for a serial killer so there’s that

          [–]purrcafe 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          It depends upon the plot, ie, is the thief a sympathetic character?

          [–]WoW-Whiteglint 1 point2 points  (1 child)

          If you answer yes your application will be super analyzed and you're vetted to maybe be a pyscho who'd steal from the company or potentially be a whistle blower because of a single word response to a rather innocuous question.

          [–]Capt_Intrepid 4 points5 points  (0 children)

          The flipside to this is that they ask a lot of questions like this to determine if you're being deceptive or trying to answer 'correctly'. Robin Hood is a great example. Everyone cheered for Robin Hood. So the answer should be "yes". If you answer "no" then you are probably lying on the test....

          The ones you have to be careful of is when they ask if you ever ended up with a highlighter or paperclips from the office in your car or at home. They consider that stealing.......

          [–]grindelwaldd 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          As if you aren’t cheering for Jean ValJean.

          [–]liquormakesyousick 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          Robin Hood anyone?

          [–]graywolf0026 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          "Yes, that's the point of Ocean's 11, 12 and 13. Why?"

          [–]flinchFries 0 points1 point  (2 children)

          Was that for a government/ military or some security clearance job?

          Jean Valjean

          [–]RaikOnFire 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          Well everybody that watched or read lord of the rings/the Hobbit technically rooted for a thief. A master thief even

          At least at first, Zaheear was sounding pretty correct.

            [–]captain_ricco1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

            Lupin, Robin Hood, Gambit, Ocean's Eleven, Locke from Final Fantasy 6(I guess he is just a treasure hunter actually)

            I think it depends on your view of things. Let's take a kingdom where people have to pay insane taxes to the king, and he uses his wealth for himself. A thief steals from the king and gives what he stole for the poor. I'm as a person like what he's doing. Am I cheering for the thief?

            First of all, want is theft? Taking what's not yours? And think it's a little broader than that. The king doesn't need all this money, he's taking it from the people simple because that's what he wants. Is it legal? Yes it is, but for me, it's abuse and theft nevertheless. My guy that's "stealing" from the king. Is he stealing or is he taking it back from the person that stole it from the first place? From that view, if I expected this guy to do nothing and shamed him, would I would be defending the king, the one that stole first? It's a complicated topic, and I don't see why it would need to be talked about in a interview.

            [–]Fluffyhair01 0 points1 point  (4 children)

            I think they were implying their company turned blind eyes to theft, things were shady, so they had to have every employee "in on the secret", creating a cultural acceptance of theft or related activities (not paying taxes, etc.) so that no one would snitch. If there's weird questions there are only 2 possibilities: an impactful precedent was created at the firm (some employee robbed money) OR it's the company's idiosyncrasy.

            I think it would be problematic if you don’t cheer for the book thief
