Bizarre Interview Questions Facebook, Google and Co Ask Their Employees To-Be

Microsoft: “If you had a choice between two superpowers — being invisible or flying — which would you choose?”  – For a high-level Product-Lead/Evangelist position.

It’s funny what people can do to have a clue to like-able job interview questions (up and down sighs) but I bet you will be puzzled if you know the kind of questions big tech companies like Facebook, Apple, Google and Intel to mention a few, ask their high-level officers to be.

Below is a few of such bizarre questions generated from reviews submitted by employees on a renown site, Glassdoor.


“If you could only choose one song to play every time you walked into a room for the rest of your life, what would it be?”

– For an Associate-Account-Strategist position in Google.

“If you could be remembered for one sentence, what would it be?”

– Also for an Associate-Account-Strategist position in Google.

“Choose a city and estimate how many piano tuners operate a business there.”



– For a Product-Manager position in Google.


“How many Big Macs does McDonald’s sell each year in the US?”

Hell no!

Hell no!

– For a Data-Scientist position in Facebook.

“How much do you charge to wash every window in Seattle?”

Laughing my head off!

Laughing my head off!

– For an Online-Sales-Operations position in Facebook.


“How many children are born every day?”


Wait o, hmm….!

– For a Global-Supply-Manager position in Apple.

 “If I was talking to your best friend, what is one thing they would say you need to work on?”

– For a Red-Zone-Specialist position.


“What do you do if you are approached by an employee who is complaining about a colleague who has horrible body odor?”

– For an Operations-Leader position.


“What kind of tree would you be?”



– For a Senior Technical-Writer position


“Design a spice rack for the blind.”

– For a Hardware-Engineer position.

In a way, you will admit that as bizarre as the questions may be, they are quite intelligent so don’t go knocking yourself out because you have an interview with a big tech company or end up turning yourself into a laughing stock. Rather, be on point and don’t freak out. Its all a trick!
