Chinese job interview

I was recently sent this interview in an email from a colleague – I get a kick out of it, so I think you will too! I’ve been on a mission recently to find jokes that are funny both in English and Chinese…consider this the first step towards global comedy domination…

我最近把这个面试发给了一个同事,他笑死了,我想你也会笑死的!我最近有个任务就是要寻找中文和英文的好玩的东西或者笑话…考虑把这个当作冲向国际喜剧界的第一步…

Best job interview ever? 最好的工作面试?

Interviewer: Ok! Go for it!

老板: 好的,就这么愉快地决定了!

Interviewee: If the job is too tiring, I’ll probably quit.

职员:如果工作太累,搞不好我会辞职的

Interviewer: Don’t worry about that, we’ll never let it happen.

老板:放心,我不会让这样的事情发生的!

Interviewee: Would I have time off on weekends?

职员:我双休日可以休息吗?

Interviewer: Of course, that’s the bottom line!

老板:当然了!这是底线!

Interviewee: Would I have to work ’til very late?

职员:平时会天天加班到凌晨吗?

Interviewer: That’s not possible, who told you that?

老板:不可能,谁告诉你的?

Interviewee: Do you offer allowance for food at work?

职员:有餐费补贴吗?

Interviewer: Absolutely, and it’s higher than in any other company!

老板:还用说吗,绝对比同行都高!

Interviewee: Is there any risk of death?

职员:有没有工作猝死的风险?

Interviewer: No, how could you ever think that?

老板:不会!你怎么会有这种念头?

Interviewee: Would the company ever take us to travel?

职员:公司会定期组织旅游吗?

Interviewer: Yep, that’s what the work manual says!

老板:这是我们的明文规定!

Interviewee: Would I have to come to work on time?

职员:那我需要准时上班吗?

Interviewer: Nope, it depends.

老板:不,看情况吧

Interviewee: What about the pay, would I get paid on time?

职员:工资呢?会准时发吗?

Interviewer: Always.

老板:一向如此!

Interviewee: Do the new staff have to do everything?

职员:事情全是新员工做吗?

Interviewer: How is it possible? There are lots of more experienced staff.

老板:怎么可能,你上头还有很多资深同事!

Interviewee: If there is a position opening, could I apply for it?

职员:如果领导职位有空缺,我可以参与竞争吗啊?

Interviewer: Definitely! That is what our company depends on!

老板:毫无疑问,这是我们公司赖以生存的机制!

Interviewee: Are you kidding me?

职员:你不会是在骗我吧?

  1. Oli…are you the boss?


  2. hm…well…it’s not bad to get fired…
    hahahahaha


  3. It’s amazing!


  4. Haha, that’s a good one. Good joke Oli! And it’s about to get a lot better after I tell you mine, eh eh eh…oh so cold:

    So there was this guy, walking down the street. Suddenly a giant bowl of rice falls from the sky, landing on the poor guy and killing him. Bystanders say his last words were: 饭死我了! (fan4 si wo le!)

    So that’s my best attempt at making a pun on “fan.” If anyone thinks they can make this joke better, I’m all ears.
