Can you answer these top interview questions from global companies?

Big companies like Facebook and Google are renowned for asking confusing riddles to really test their interviewees.

While they say they have taken a step away from asking such questions, it’s always good to be prepared with some curveballs.

Would you be able to answer these?

1. How many ping pong balls can fit in a 747?

 

2. If you look at a clock and the time is 3:15, then what is the angle between the hour hand and the minute hand?

 

3. How many times a day does a clock’s hands swap?

 

4. On your very best day at work – the day you come home and think you have the best job in the world – what did you do that day?

 

5. What does “being Googley” mean to you?

 

6. Here’s a string, with numbers from 1 – 250 in random order, but it’s missing one number. How will you find the missed number?

 

7. If you wanted to bring your dog to work but one of your team members was allergic to dogs, what would you do?

 

8. How many ways can you think of to find a needle in a haystack?

 

9. How could you solve humankind’s biggest crisis, given $1billion and a spacecraft?

 

 

Top interviewers at these companies have said the right answers aren’t always what they’re looking for. Instead, it’s about how you analyse the questions and think about the answers.

For example, you’re not expected to know how many balls fit in a plane. But you are expected to ask questions such as ‘Can I use the space inside the wings?’ or ‘Can I use the ovens?’ and then explain how you would work it out.

These questions aren’t your typical interview questions. Even so, be prepared for any question your interviewer throws at you! For more standard questions, you can look here.
