18 replies
Found 2nd Sep 2010
Just got back from a job interview and was asked the question

"What type of vegetable would you want to be and why?"

lawd knows why but I immediately answered

"a potato...because they are versatile and can be adapted to most dishes/situations.

never been asked that before! But then again I havent had many job interviews!

These sort of questions would provoke a violent urge to punch the interviewer. At this point I would just tell them the job/workplace isn't for you and walk out.

I doubt I would have been able to come up with an answer to that question! Maybe the fact i am a school cook at the moment helped me with the veg question

I would be an onion as I'm good at making people cry.

Sounds like the type of question to appear on Blind Date oO

turrah



I would want to be whatever Mercedes McQueens favourite vegetable is.
I could then get in her mouth.

+1

In one interview I was asked what type of animal I would be and 3 reasons why - after that question I lost interest in the rest of the interview as I'd already decided I didn't want to work there.
