Clown asking funny interview questionsSome people like to ask questions in a job interview. The reasons of asking a job applicant such questions, as well  as the value of your answer for the interviewers, is highly disputable. But despite of this fact, mostly from some sort of strange intention of easy going managers, you can be confronted with some funny interview questions.

Probably one of the main intentions here is to see if you have some sense of humor. This can be important in certain companies. Or, some other experts believe that giving funny interview questions helps to make candidates a little bit more relaxed, so they are more honest in the interview afterwards.

Some people believe it is also a form of a test of your motivation to do the job. If you are serious, you should approach seriously any job interview question, shouldn’t you?

Although all of the above mentioned reasons are at least disputable (if not complete non-sense), we prepared for you a list of some common funny interview questions. If you are an interviewer or a candidate, it doesn’t matter. Use it for your advantage!
