Hi everyone

Some interesting interview questions from Google and Facebook!


What's the strangest thing you've ever been asked at an interview?

All the best

  • I said a toffee crisp. They didn't ask me why, it just seemed a very random question. If you have any ideas on what they thought, I'd be really interested to know.
    • I think they are meant to ask the rationale I have no idea!! Unless of course you were applying for a role with Mars ;-)
  • I was once asked what chocolate bar I would choose - I never found out what this said about me!

    I liked question 5 - I would've chosen flying but have to say, they would be disappointed if they hired me because I would not be comfortable getting on stage in front of an audience.
    • Hi Jane

      Come on you've got to tell us which chocolate bar you said.............

      All the best

  • Some of these questions are good brain teasers, my favourite is the answer to question 9 (Amazon). Have a good weekend.

HI, Once again my assignment has not been marked within the 3 week window. Have the timeframes changed? It's my second assignment (CHR) and both have taken longer than 3 weeks to mark, and I'm waiting for my results before writing assignment 3 (HRF)…
