I have no idea how reliable this source is, but I love the examples posted there, most likely as humour submissions.
My own three stupid stories from interviews. They're nowhere near as funny as the ones in the link though.
- I was in my last year in economics grad school. I figured I'd probably want an academic job, but decided to interview with General Electric when they came to campus. The interview was going well until the interviewer asked [this is all paraphrased; it happened quite a few years ago], "Would you be willing to trim your hair and shave your beard if you came to work for General Electric?" This is roughly what I looked like then:
I replied, "No, I really don't think so. Also, your question actually surprises me for two reasons. First the GE Labs, historically were known for hiring people based on their abilities, not on their appearance or political views." I may have mentioned Steinmetz or someone at that point, to show I had done some homework before the interview. "It also surprises me," I added, "because of the slogan, 'At GE, progress is our most important product.'"
The interviewer responded that "In the lab we can see your results; in economics and forecasting, we have to have faith in you, and your appearance will affect that." Needless to say, I didn't get an interview trip or anything further from General Electric.
- More recently, a few years ago I was auditioning for a role in a classical play with a high-quality semi-pro theatre company. As usual, after such an audition, I was asked to sit and chat with the director and assistant director. At some point in the interview I told them, "Well, actually I'd like to play a ninja warrior...." They laughed, but it was stupid; no reason for them to take me seriously with a statement like that.
- Even more stupid, after I nailed a monologue at an audition, the director for whom I was auditioning said he really liked the play I'd taken the audition from. I made the egregious error of telling him I hated it and thought it was stupid but that I quite liked the range I could show in the monologue.
Unfortunately the great, brief questions and answers at the Buzzfeed site are screen captures from tweets, so you'll have to follow the link to see them. Believe me, it's worth it. They're funny.
