Top 25 Oddball Interview Questions Of 2011

Top 25 Oddball Interview Questions Of 2011 | Glassdoor Blog.

This post made me smile and even laugh out loud at times.  Compared to these 25 questions, those at a standard academic interview are positively mundane and boring. I think my favourite of the 25 is “How would you get an elephant into a refrigerator?”  Many of these questions are designed, I’m assuming, to test people’s creativity and lateral-thinking skills.  I think some of these questions could be good ice breakers for the first class of a course as a means of encouraging students to engage in a discussion where they are not afraid of getting the wrong answer because, really, is there only one correct way to get an elephant into a refrigerator?
