Managers: Please Stop Asking Riddles in Interviews
You’re Wasting Your Time and Your Credibility
“I need some good questions to throw off this candidate,” a friend recently told me. “I think I’m going to ask how many golf balls would fit in the room.” Try as I might to dissuade her, she was set on asking it. Even more unfortunate, she’s far from the only manager still asking these ridiculous interview questions.
