Most Peculiar Questions Asked at a Job Interview?

Other

What are some of the most peculiar questions you have been asked at a job interview? Once I was asked a random question totally unrelated to the job, something along the lines of, "If you could fire someone would you knowing they did nothing wrong but benefited yourself?". Probably a trick question to see how I would react.

I once got asked when I was a teenager what my reasoning was for wearing the length skirt I had on - implication being that if I'd chosen a shorter length then the job would have been mine. It was for an electronics store. (Currys, I believe) The things you remember.

That sounds like a creepy one. I dated a bloke who worked at currys. He was a huge weirdo who slept with the teenage saturday girl, then got her moved to another store because he didn't want to see her again. I wonder if he interviewed you? 😁

One woman had a teenage son she said and she wanted me to advise her on what curtains and bedding to get for him. I was mid 20s at the time and I had no clue. the whole interview was about her son and decorating. I should say it was for an admin job at a hotel, not interior design. I did not get the job.
