Nontechnical recruiting in a tough candidate job market 5/28 webinar at 1 PM EST by clicking here.
If you are interviewing today or, at some point in the near future, chances are the recruiter might throw you a curve ball to see how you act under pressure. One way they do that is to ask you an oddball question. Here is a sample of oddball interview questions from Glassdoor.
1. “If you were to get rid of one state in the US, which would it be and why?” – Asked at Forrester Research, Research Associate candidate.
2. “How many cows are in Canada?” – Asked at Google, Local Data Quality Evaluator candidate.
3. “How many quarters would you need to reach the height of the Empire State building?” – Asked at JetBlue, Pricing/Revenue Management Analyst candidate
