Can potential hires think on their feet?

by on
in Hiring,Human Resources

Some intriguing, and not-so-standard, job interview questions:

    Procter & Gamble: Sell me an invisible pen.

•    Citigroup: What is your strategy at table tennis?

•    Capital One: How do you evaluate Subway’s five-foot sub policy?

•    Lubin Lawrence: If you could de­­scribe Hershey, Godiva and Dove chocolates as people, how would you describe them?

•    Jane Street Capital: What is the ­smallest number divisible by 225 that consists of all 1’s and 0’s?

Note: For tough or oddball questions, it’s not whether your candidates get the right answers, but how they tackle the problems. Are they creative? Can they think on their feet?
