30 Weirdest Interview Questions That Might Surprise You
« on: March 28, 2015, 11:55:16 AM »

Not all interview questions follow the traditional format with standard interview questions. Interviewers may rely on out of the blue questions to decide between candidates and unfortunately you can't really prepare for those weird questions as you didn't even know they existed.

The Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) has put together some very weird questions that you might be a little bit shocked about when you recieve them during your interview.

You should still stay calm when you have been asked one of following strange questions that you weren't prepared for.
