HR and Recruiters: Be a part of history & take our behavioral survey to help us understand "Who is HR?" 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
