The 25 CRAZAZIEST job-interview questions of 2013

Glassdoor.jpgFrom my perspective,’s Top 25 Oddball Interview Questions For 2013 is one lobbed softball after another. Then again, I’m the guy who, as the interviewer, used to ask law students to name their favorite Supreme Court Justice of all-time.

{Totally a trick question. The only acceptable response is, “Judge Elihu Smails.” Never happened. Coincidentally, my tenure on the Hiring Committee was brief.}

But, before we call it a day, I’m sure you’re all dying to know how I would have answered four of the oddball questions:

“A penguin walks through that door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?”
– “I’m here for the drug test. So, where do I— Hey! Quit staring at my junk!”

“On a scale from one to ten, rate me as an interviewer.”
– Tool, err, two.

“What songs best describes your work ethic?”
– Uh, duh! No, wait

“If you could be anyone else, who would it be?”
– Any one of my awesome blog readers.
