Top 25 Oddball Interview Questions for 2014

Entrepreneurs face many daunting tasks every day. One of the scariest tasks is deciding which potential candidates will be the best fit for the organization.  When it comes to interviewing techniques most business owners become better from practice, but sometimes it is helpful to review the strategies of other companies. 

We have all heard the typical job interview questions such as "What is your biggest weakness?" and "Why should we hire you?", but those are all questions that candidates can prepare for. The typical interview questions are necessary, but sometimes asking an oddball question can reveal more about the candidate. Glassdoor complied their top 25 oddball interview questions for 2014 by reviewing thousands of questions shared by job candidates from companies like Apple to Beth Bath & Beyond. Our favorites are listed below, but the full list can be found at: http://www.glassdoor.com/
