An Esteemed Observation…

Google finally came out and said they don’t bother with brain teasers as part of their interview process anymore. I’d like to think the PC Weenies played a small role in that, but the fact of the matter is: brain teasers aren’t effective in determining how well the candidate can perform the job. Unless your job is to answer crazy brain teasers, that is…

Does your company still utilize brain teasers when screening potential candidates? What’s the craziest brain teaser you’ve been asked on an interview? How did you respond?

    Not a brain teaser, but I was once asked what my greatest weakness was. I replied with “Kryptonite.” I didn’t get that job.

Tell me what you think!
