For the Lulz: Job Interview Questions

If you’re like me, you dread job interviews. Doesn’t matter which side of the table I’m on, it’s always a weird time. Then again, my whole life is a weird time, so who am I to judge?

 

Ahem.

I will say, however, that I do enjoy interviewing someone more than being interviewed. Maybe it’s the power. You know what Uncle Ben of the Spiderman fame says: “With great power comes great suffering to those around you.” He never said that to you? Oh, he said that to me. A LOT.

Well anyway, in case you find yourself in a position of interviewing someone, here are a few job interview questions to ensure you won’t be forgotten:

  • How do you handle stressful situations?
  • Do you prefer to be the star of the show or a behind-the-scenes mastermind?
  • A supplier doesn’t want to comply with a non-negotiable request. How do you persuade them to comply?
  • Do you consider yourself a good driver?
  • Would you be willing to work on commission?
  • Would you be interested in a high stakes, high reward venture?
  • How motivated are you by money?
  • Would you like to retire early?
  • Do you have a passport?
  • Are you okay with living abroad?
  • Do you know anything about safes and security systems?
  • Do you generally have a good working relationship with lawyers?
  • How do you feel about the prison system?

Drop a couple of these if you want to spice up an interview. Sprinkle more than a couple to get a personal chat with HR. Add a large helping if you’d like to talk to some type of government-employed authority figure. Now go, have fun conducting that interview!

Tune in next time for ways to respond to that interview question, “Do you have any questions for us?” Here’s a freebie response: “Where do you keep the bodies?”

    -face to face
    -email
    -carrier pigeon
