The whole list is over here at: 25 weirdest job interview questions of 2012
But, my favorites are:
4. “A penguin walks through that door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?” – Asked at Clark Construction Group, office engineer candidate.
11. “If we came to your house for dinner, what would you prepare for us?” – Asked at Trader Joe’s, crew candidate.
Not because I think they are good questions, but because I think they are funny.
As for the penguin, he doesn’t say anything because Penguins don’t speak. Why he’s here is that somebody with connections at the zoo is playing a funny joke and you probably shouldn’t let the ASPCA know about it.
And what would I make for dinner? I generally make burritos for dinner when I have guests. Why? Because I can put all the different ingredients on the table (shredded meat, black beans, cheese, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, tortillas and tortilla chips) and everyone can make their own burrito as they would like. That way, if someone hates, say, tomatoes, they aren’t stuck with a miserable meal. They can just skip the salsa.
Now, would you hire me?
