The questions I have liked best are: 1. You are in a sailboat over
deepest part of the Pacific Ocean. You drop a 10 lb. cannon ball over
the side. How long will it take to hit bottom? and 2. Using a dummy
had grenade, ask the interviewee to sell you the grenade.
I have to say that interview questions like that would tell me
immediately that I didn't
want to work in that place.
Those are my kind of questions! What outfit asked these questions John?
