Funniest Interview Questions Ever

Whilst many employers do tend to adopt the traditional approach in job interviews and ask fairly standard questions which you can prepare for, (as we outlined in our Top 10 Interview Questions), many others choose instead to ask more quirky or off the wall questions for which there is no real way to prepare. We’ve put together some of our favourites in our Funniest Interview Questions Ever….

If you were shrunk to the size of a pencil and put in a blender, how would you get out? – Goldman Sachs

You are stranded on a desert island. You have 60 seconds to choose people of ten professions to come with you. Who do you choose? Go! – Google

Rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 10 how weird you are. – Capital One

  1. A lot of the questions above are actually skill testing and reasoning questions.

    A popular question 12-14 years ago was: Which Hollywood film actor would play you in a movie of your life?

    Clearly a self-perception/ego question. Very popular with HR in the 90s. I was asked it in every interview at one point.

  2. They need to get some new questions out there, their all the same we have had some corkers asked to our candidates over the years here a a few not the worst but, they are more of a ‘where are you coming from asking that question’ and ‘how do I answer that’

    – Can you tell a joke?
    – On a scale of 1 to 10 how happy are you?
    – What kind of people do you dislike?
    – Which super power do you like to have and why?
    – If you saw someone steal a tin of beans in Tesco, would you report it?
