I had three questions asked of my ability as "a young girl" to manage older men

3 Answers

I said that I had dealt with organising people older than myself before and that I was respectful and listened to any concerns they had, as I would anyone, and then politely explain why I needed them to do what I had asked. And that I had always developed strong relationships with older men in the workplace so didn't see it as an issue. Honestly, I was shocked at the sexism of this question (especially the use of girl when I am a fully grown woman) so probably didn't answer as well as I could should they have worded it differently, I also know there was only me and one other candidate (male) up for this role so I think this is why I didn't get the position.

Maybe you did not get the job. Because you weren't the right person. Nothing to do with sex age etc...

It is possible but 3 questions on the same point which specifically singled out my gender and was actively sexist in the wording is wrong regardless...
