- What is more important, loyalty or honesty? This can be tricky. It's easy to be loyal to anything, but honesty is doing the right thing all the time or if you do mess up, telling the truth and not trying to cover it up.

- Being a girl why have you chosen Marketing as your field?
- The moment we sat down for the interview, the recruiter says "So, tell me a story". I was confused so I asked after a long pause, "Tell you my story?" He responded "Just tell me a story, I don't have a a lot of time" I was so confused I simply started talking about where I was from and went to school, after a couple sentences he interrupts me and says "OK, OK. So you've seen The Fast and Furious right? What color is the main character's car?" So I froze, and after about 15 seconds I respond "Green?" And he says "No, that was the first one." I was so nervous at this point, all I could say was "I... don't... recall." Turned out after they hired me he said he was messing with me the whole interview to test how witty I could be. Pausing was the worst thing I could had done haha

- Someone I knew was asked "What kind of food do you like to put ketchup on?" when she was being interviewed for a wine sales rep. position. In her mind, I'm sure she was tempted to respond sarcastically, "Whatever kind of food you'd like me to put ketchup on!" Instead she truthfully answered that she doesn't like ketchup. She eventually got the job. A week later, she asked why they had asked that question and was told that they'd been looking for someone whose taste buds were well-developed (so she could appreciate fine wine) and their research had apparently shown that the use of ketchup was an indicator of poorly-developed taste buds. And here I thought it was a trick/stress question!
