Do You Know The Answers?

Have you ever been for a job interview and found yourself in a weird situation?

Some employers have found that by asking random or thought provoking questions, it encourages potential employees to feel comfortable and to be more honest with their responses. 


Here is my pick of the strangest interview questions:


1. Facebook asked:

“25 racehorses, no stopwatch. 5 tracks. Figure out the top three fastest horses in the fewest number of races.”


2. Google asked:

“Why are manhole covers round?”


3. Apple asked:

“If you were a pizza delivery man, how would you benefit from scissors?”


4. Amazon asked:

“How would you solve problems if you were from Mars?”


5. Microsoft asked:

“How would you test an elevator?”


I have no idea how I'd answer some of these! What would you say?
