23 Interview Stories That Were Super Unexpected And Weird

Job interviews give everyone butterflies, even the ones taking the interview.

Job interviews are a big thing for the interviewee. You feel a mixture of excitement as well as anxiousness as you prepare yourself for your big day. Generally, any person preparing for a job interview would get themselves ready for scenario-based questions, questions related to their field, and some general knowledge questions to face the curve ball. And of course, you have to dress up for the occasion so ideally, you would want to wear your best, most formal 2-piece suit to charm your interviewer and build a strong first impression. After all, it is all about the first impression. All you are left with to do is keep strong control over the butterflies of anxiety and excitement flying in your stomach.

The reality, however, can be slightly different. No matter how hard and well you prepare for a job interview, a lot of the outcome also depends on the person interviewing you. If they are a mean person or not in a good mood that day, no matter how professional and accurately you answer all those questions, they will always find a way to tip you off-balance with the weirdest and unexpected response or question that will confuse you and your entire confidence will plummet. And the opposite can happen too. The person being interviewed may come up with stuff you, as a person taking the interview, may have never heard before. A new experience for everyone.

Our today’s focus is going to be exactly on those unexpected and weird interviews. Here are 23 weird interview stories shared by people from around the world.
