WASHINGTON – If you’ve ever had an interview, you’ve probably had a weird interview question.
According to Glassdoor, Google once asked a candidate, “How many cows are in Canada?”
Another strange one from Urban Outfitters: “Pick two celebrities to be your parents.” Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, right?
One WTOP employee was asked, “If you were an item at a garage sale, what would you be?” Her answer: A tractor sprinkler.
