Job interview questions and answers (Part 14): How To Answer Weird Job Interview Questions


In this week’s job search tip, we’re gonna discuss weird job interview questions and how you should answer them. That’s coming up! Hey guys, I’m Kim with Snagajob, your number one source for hourly jobs, and welcome to Job Hunters, our weekly job search advice show. So we asked our Facebook and Twitter followers what’s the strangest thing they’ve been asked in a job interview. And we got some really weird ones. What kind of cereal would you describe yourself as? Uh. I… How would you describe Facebook to your grandmother? Well, I don’t… If you had to make a shoe with anything in this room, what would you make it with? I don’t…what? I don’t… How would you explain a chair to an alien? What? Why? Who? I don’t know. We’re not sharing these questions with you to make you nervous, though I totally understand if they do. We just want to prepare you in case something like this does come up. The biggest theme we saw when we asked this was: If you were a fruit. Animal. Plant. Color. Superhero. Car. What would you be, and why? So the employers really looking to see if you can think fast on your feet. Customers are sometimes gonna come up to you and throw some off the wall questions at you and they just want to see that you know what to do. So, it’s not so much the example you pick, but your actual reason for giving that particular object. So here’s how I would answer: If you were a piece of furniture, what would you be and why? If I were a piece of furniture, I’d think I’d be a coffee table. I like to be around people and I know, at least in my family, whenever we get together we like to gather around the coffee table. Don’t worry too much if you don’t think that you gave the answer they wanted to hear. Remember, they just want to see how you react to strange situations. Just make sure that you sound like you know what you’re talking about and they may even agree with you. So thanks for joining us today.
