CBS Moneywatch recently ran a story highlighting some of the “bizarre” (insert bat-shit-crazy) qustions companies like Facebook, USB, Google, P&G, and Goldman Sachs ask in job interviews. One of my favoite online only publications, The Morning News took a shot at responding to them. Now don’t don’t give up on the list. I didn’t find all 20 funny (pretty much all the questions are). But some of the them are just hillarious. My favorite:
UBS: If we were playing Russian roulette and had one bullet, I randomly spun the chamber and fired but nothing was fired. Would you rather fire the gun again or respin the chamber and then fire on your turn?
I’d rather get the fuck out of your office and run away very fast. What the hell are you people on? Haven’t you heard of email? Or official dispute procedures? Jesus.
I hate to admit two jobs back, before I started working for myself, I got asked more then a few questions like this in the final interview. Coolest company I ever worked for!
