Stupid Interview Questions….


I guess there is not a single Hi-Tech employee, who hasn’t had the annoying experience of being interviewed by someone suffering from severe “asking disability”…In the majority of cases such an interview is made out of a bunch of annoying “logical” riddles, that have no relation whatsoever with the actual work to be done.

Next comes the Managerial Question . I was wondering why people ask some questions…Like when I was in my college ..A girl was asked ..Where would you see yourself in next 5 yrs…She answered ..In your seat..The Interviewer got angry..said ” It took me 20 yrs to reach here..”..Probably the girl was right ..His Question shows how the interview took 20 yrs to reach that stage…he he he…

Read this …

Where do you see yourself in five years?

If you were an animal/a can of soup/some other random object, which one would you be?

What are your weaknesses?

What in particular interested you about our company?

What would your past managers say about you?

and how you can answer them …

Comeon Buck Up interviewers ..get some nice real questions….
Interview is a 2 way process where you inform on your skills and get info on their offering..If it happens one way…then …gone…

  1. I’ve had a few of the Ye Olde interview questions but my sister got this genius question:

    “If you were a character from Friends, which one would you be?”

    Bit of a problem, because she’d never watched Friends and probably never will. As I understand it, she allowed the silence to spiral for a few seconds, then asked how the question pertained to the job.

    Needless to say, she didn’t get it and after that question, I think she’d have declined if they’d offered her the position. We actually went out to celebrate her not getting that job.

    But to be honest, it was graduate jobs she was going for, so a certain level of intelligence was demanded from her. I see no reason why the interviewee shouldn’t expect the same level of intelligence from the interviewer.

    • sometimes people are afraid of smarter interviewee specially grad jobs… They are afraid that they may spend time on training the person and the person will leave the job as their orgainisation cannot cater smart people because of their organisations existing non competence….
