By far I would rather have a male interview me. Practically all the jobs I've had it was the male giving me the final interview and possibly recommending me. With women I think it's hit or miss and bias kicks in right away do to the fact they are emotional by nature. I do not understand why they make up the majority in HR, and my guess is because majority of HR. One job I actually slept on the couch, while my the person interviewing me was coming in and I stumbled on questions yet I still got the job, and I think it was because she liked me in an emotional way.

All of my bosses, or the people that have played some part in hiring me, have been female.

(I'm a male by the way)

I have never been interviewed by just one person, nor have I interviewed people by myself. It's always been at least 2, but more often 3-4 people.Other than a small business with only one owner, it's a good idea to have more than one if only to have a witness to help fight accusations of illegal questions, discrimination, or sexual harassment.

Based on my experience working in offices, I think females actually don't belong in the workplace at all. They belong at home in the kitchen and/or taking care of the children.

Based on mine, I think men are seriously falling down on their "hunting" duties. Maybe they should work less so they have more time to sharpen their arrows and knives?
