The Pharma Sales Interview Breakthrough Blog
So...I realized this is silly...but here are a few "crazy" interview questions outlined by Ladders.com.
If you actually get asked any of these, I would be shocked because any answer that anyone provides is a waste of the interviewer's and the interviewee's time.
Remember, the goal of an interview is to gather objective data and information in order to truly evaluate candidates. Any questions outside that are as whacky as these take the interviewer away from that goal. I suppose that these types of questions may provide some insight into how one thinks or their personality...but I think there are other ways to examine and learn about those aspects of a candidate.
That said, it's always fun to take a look at these types of questions from other industries and ponder how you might respond. Enjoy! Click the link above for thoughts and potential answers.
