Bo Sullivan first began his long career at WHYN radio in 1990 as a sports talk show producer. Bo then moved on to become the host of that sports talk show. In 1993, Bo became the sports anchor and co-host for the WHYN morning show. After a few hiatuses, both planned and unplanned, Bo came back to stay in 1996 as the morning show sports anchor, producer, and co-host.
Born and raised in Westfield, he's now raising his own family there. He lives with his wife Kris and daughters Leighanne and Shannon. When Bo was growing up, his father Richard Sullivan was superintendent of schools in two local communities. Politics runs in the family. Brother Brian is a Westfield city councilor and brother Rick is the city's seven term mayor. Besides transporting his children to various activities including CCD and swimming lessons, he coaches both daughters in three different sports. He also works as a part-time political consultant. In his scarce spare time, Bo likes to golf and is a frequent visitor to the Connecticut casinos.
What does Bo like most about his position at WHYN? For one, he's a big fan of waking at 3:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. He also enjoys meeting the many loyal listeners to the show. His lifelong ambition is to open a sports bar and play Texas Hold 'em every day of his life.
....and yes...based on supervisors, human resource folks and ceos...the following topics have ATUALLY emerged from applicants interviewing for a job....DON'T SK THESE QUESTIONS!!! (and clearly, after you go through them you'll have a better understanding of how and why the unemployment rolls in this country are ever increasing.....
What time would I have to arrive in the morning?
Not only is this like admitting that you're punctually challenged, it shows your future boss that you're more interested in your daily schedule than the actual work. Stay away from questions about logistics. This also applies to "How long is lunch?"
Try instead, "What's an average day like?" You'll likely wind up with more than enough information about hours and lunch perks.
How long has this company been around?
The cardinal rule being broken here: Never ask a question you could easily answer with a Google search. That includes everything from "Who's the CEO?" to "Where are corporate headquarters?" to "What's the most popular product you sell?" These types of questions make you seem unprepared, which for an employer is a red flag. Do the research before you come in, and while you're learning about the company, look for questions that can showcase your preparedness.
Instead try something like, "What kind of changes have you seen since so-in-so took over in June?"
On average, how quickly do people get promoted?
This signals that you're ambitious, and that's a desirable quality. But this question at a job interview can sound yucky and opportunistic. You want to show you're perfect for the job you're applying for, not the job three rungs up the ladder (even if you're sure you could handle that one, too).
Try instead, "What kind of opportunities are there for growth at this company?"
Do you do background checks?
Think of applying for a job as playing a video game: You must complete one level at a time until you attain the goal. In other words, cross each bridge as you come to it.
If you have something on public record that you don't want an employer to know about (and if you're asking this question, you obviously do), cross that bridge when you must, and no sooner. If you're lucky, the employer doesn't do background checks, and you're in the clear. If the company does, simply tell them what happened up-front, with whatever explanations are necessary, and give the go-ahead to run your background.
What's the salary?
This one is tempting. Of course you want to know what how much you'd make — what if the salary is so small you couldn't take the job even if it were offered? But this is a question for HR, preferably after you've been offered the position, not the interview. Again, the focus of the interview should be related to the work: Your background, the skills you're bringing to the table, and what sets you apart from other candidates.
Forget trying to get this information entirely, and instead ask something that shows how interested you are in the work. Career advisors recommend, "What does 'success' look like for this position?"
Did I get the job?
On a dinner date, you wouldn't ask for a kiss right after you finish the appetizer — so don't ask to close the deal with a potential employer moments after she's met you. It's too eager, and that's a turn-off.
Instead, thank her for the opportunity and say, "I'll follow up next week."
So...ther eyou have it..and in the words of Ferris Buehler...... "i weep for the future..."
