    Where do you see youself in 5 years.

    I know it doesn't seem odd, but at 16 years old, interviewing for Sonic Drive-In. My initial thought was "not here, that's for sure"

    My madien name is really quite Italian. When going to a job interview one summer while I was in college the manager of the fast food restaurant I was applying at asked me, "Is your family in the mob?" 

    Needless to say, I was quite beside myself.

    I was asked if I had any children, which kind of surprised me. It's clearly not legal to ask such questions, and I didn't get the job. Kind of annoying. Should have lied.

    You are given a scale and 6 weights.  5 weigh the same, but one is different.  In two tries, how do you pick out the weight that is different from the rest?

    Hm, my dad is quite famous in the city I'm currently living, and during the job interview, the interviewer asked me: "oh, so are the daughter of xxxx?"
    I hate that question...

    it was a funny question : "when you will get married?" which has nothing to do with job.

    When I was a young man I was asked the question "Do you want to make money?" and something like "Do you want to make lots of money"
    I was being interviewed for a sales position.
    At that time my answer was no. Nowadays I would never say no to that kind of question

    Good question! I never thought if it. I've only been asked ordinary questions. I want to be asked a weird job interview question now. It would certainly be interesting!
