What Question Should Be Banned From Job Interviews?

What Should Not Be Asked In An Interview

Chattanooga, Tennessee—



A Reddit thread yesterday (March 14th) asked: “What question should be banned from job interviews?” Some of the answers included:

  • Where do you see yourself in 10 years, it is a pretty loaded question!
  • Explaining gaps in your resume is annoying.
  • “why should I hire you?”
  • What is your biggest weakness?
  • “tell me about yourself”
  • “why do you want to work with us?”
  • “What are you currently making?” or “what did you make at your last job?”
  • “How would you handle situation ‘X'”?
  • “How well will you work with your coworkers?” Idfk bro it depends how they act.
  • Why are you considering a new employment situation?
  • “how good are you at working under pressure?” From my understanding, that meant “you’ll most likely be overworked from time to time, are you okay with it?”
  • I was asked once who my biggest role model is.
  • “What Disney character would you be and why” I have been asked this at least 4 times.
