Oddest Interview Question You've Been Asked?

There was an article on Yahoo today about weird interview questions, what was your oddest question?

I used to ask candidates (both male and female) if they were a shoe what kind would they be. I wanted to see how creative they were, and how they saw themselves.

  • I was asked to role play a scenario. The interviewers pretended to be kids at a youth center. They threw things at me, yelled out, and one "kid" asked, My mommy says I am my mommy wrong? Needless to say I just said excuse me and walked out of the interveiw.

  • I actually already had my job but I was offered a step up to a better office. That Departments Boss called me in to interview me to see if I was right for the position & he actually asked me "are you pregnant? Do you intend on getting Pregnant any time soon because I really don't want to hire someone who is here today then sick and out tomorrow? I hesitated because I thought "you are a total asshole" but I smiled & said Oh no not any time soon. He was an SOB but I really wanted the position. He was replaced months later! Thank Goodness. Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet if you need/wan't a particular job even if what they are saying is totally illegal or just plain stupid. I got the position & stayed 13 years!

  • I was once asked what kind of animal I would be; I was shocked, because I thought that question was an urban myth. My response? Jack-a-lope!
