MOST BIZARRE JOB INTERVIEW QUESTIONS
I found this article from a friend of mine who WORKS at NETSCAPE, comment below and tell me some of your crazy experiences as well. Just comment below or TWEET them to me @whereswingnut 


When you interview for a new job, you expect to be asked how you succeeded in your old job and the challenges you faced. But would you ever expect to be asked how to make a tuna fish sandwich or figure out the number of cows in Canada? If you interviewed at Astron Consulting or Google respectively, you might have been asked those bizarre questions. Glassdoor.com pored through tens of thousands of interview questions job candidates have shared over the past year and then assembled a list of the 25 most bizarre queries asked by U.S. companies. Here are the twelve most bizarre job interview questions ever asked:
  1. "If you were to get rid of one state in the U.S., which would it be and why?" --Asked at Forrester Research
  2. "A penguin walks through that door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?" --Asked at Clark Construction Group
  3. "What song best describes your work ethic?" --Asked at Dell
  4. "Jeff Bezos walks into your office and says you can have a million dollars to launch your best entrepreneurial idea. What is it?" --Asked at Amazon
  5. "What do you think about when you are alone in your car?" --Asked at Gallup
  6. "Can you say: 'Peter Pepper Picked a Pickled Pepper' and cross-sell a washing machine at the same time?" --Asked at MasterCard
  7. "If we came to your house for dinner, what would you prepare for us?" --Asked at Trader Joe's
  8. "My wife and I are going on vacation, where would you recommend?" --Asked at PricewaterhouseCoopers
  9. "You are a head chef at a restaurant, and your team has been selected to be on 'Iron Chef.' How do you prepare your team for the competition, and how do you leverage the competition for your restaurant?" --Asked at Accenture
  10. "What's your favorite song? Perform it for us now." --Asked at LivingSocial
  11. "Have you ever stolen a pen from work?" --Asked at Jiffy Software
  12. "Pick two celebrities to be your parents." --Asked at Urban Outfitter
