When recruiting staff becomes weather-sensitive

Earlier this month I met a senior manager based on the Isle of White. He told me that if they interview people from the mainland, the interviewees' attitudes to the job can be forecast quite accurately from a knowledge of the severity of the weather on their ferry crossing from Southampton. Fine weather and the interviewees assess the job reasonably rationally, biased by the normal rose-tinted spectacles that interviewees have. Heavy weather and it is difficult to get them to think positively about the job at all.
