Behka’s Enquiring Minds: Job Interviews [SURVEY]
A lot of us out there haven’t been lucky enough to land our dream job right out of school. As a matter of fact, several of us have been through quite a few jobs over the years. I know I’ve done everything from home health to library work, telemarketing to retail. I’m sure you’ve had a few job interviews from time to time as well. But after the questions they ask you… it makes you wonder why they ask certain questions!
In one of my interviews I got the first question: “Describe your favorite movie in 14 words or less.” And you had to do it in your head, no pen and paper. So I was literally counting words on my fingers, like an idiot. Then they asked me how I’d get a client from the airport to the office, if they were flying into town to visit the company. Huh? And the interview actually got worse from there. The questions had nothing to do with my ability to do the job. I guess maybe the movie one could test creative thinking in a tight spot, but still… it just felt like a way to make me feel stupid.
What’s the point of these stupid interview questions? Are interviewers these days looking online for random questions to test people? I thought it was supposed to be a real conversation between two human beings.
What are the weirdest questions you’ve been asked in a job interview?
