At my last employer, the five tech writers in our
department interviewed each applicant in a group
setting. One gentleman seemed very uncomfortable,
although whether it was a result of the group
interview or just his lack of conversation skills I
don't know. One of the writers asked him what he liked
about being a technical writer. He paused
uncomfortably for a moment, shrugged his shoulders,
and stared blankly at my colleague. Finally he
replied, "I don't know. What do YOU like about it?"

Needless to say, we didn't hire the loser.
