Would you like to work here?
"If you were at a public place and overheard a stranger saying bad things about this company, what would you do?"
I had this look on my face: .__.
I replied, "I don't think I would do anything. It isn't really my place to interject a strangers conversation."
I didn't get the job.
I work in order to fund my more valuable endeavors- time and activities with family and friends, providing a quality of life for my pets, and donating to charitable causes. I'm not the type of person who centers my life around my job. If that's the kind of employee they were seeking, I am definitely not a candidate.
I have worked for too many companies that expect maximum dutiful loyalty from me, while giving as little as possible to me in return. It damaged my health and my emotional well-being. I will not do it again.
I would not do that. They would have to fire me.
What volume developer I use on my hair.
I guess it wasn't that strange since it was a position at a salon, but it's the weirdest one I could think of to answer your question :)
If I were an ice cream, what flavour would I be and why?
Yes, I have to admit that I was stymied for a second or two and had to play for time by commenting how I never expected to be asked that particular question and joking about how such questions were impossible to anticipate - then the answer came to me.
I said I would be vanilla flavoured, because I am pretty straight forward, with no bells or whistles on, but most people like me when they get to know me.
It was obviously good enough, because I was one of those taken on.
I went for one job and the manager of a different department asked me if he minded me hi-jacking me for a job on his, so I ended up doing something completely different to the job I'd applied for.
'Can you draw me an icon of my manager?' For a programming job... No I am not an artist.
Have i ever killed anyone, which i thought odd to ask in light of it being a p/t pizza delivery job?
It was called 'Deadly Dereks Dangerous Delivery Service!
I was asked if I was pregnant.
It was 50 years ago.
Yes, it definitely was.
If you had a coffee mug, what would it say? And, do you want half of my banana?
Yes, he was multitasking and eating his lunch while interviewing me. He felt compelled to share. He also told me every bad thing about the company during the interview. Bad interviewing 101. Worst part was...he was the owner. I turned the job down. :)
I think so, he had trouble keeping help. A few weeks after my interview, I met a lady that had just quit there. She took the job I turned down. She said it was horrible. I guess I made the right call.
