Who Wants to Work for a Company Like That Anyway?

You may be thinking “If a company is clueless enough to not know about Equal Employment Opportunity laws, or an interviewer really thinks he’s entitled to know my marital status, would I really want to work for them anyway?”

It’s a fair question, but the time to ask it is after you have a job offer, not in the middle of an interview. The goal of an interview is to get a job offer or to move on to the next phase of the hiring process. You have nothing to lose by going ahead with an interviewer who makes mistakes like these, but everything to gain by leaving your options open.
