Curiosity Kills: The Top Interview Questions To Avoid

Asking the right question in a job interview can get you a paycheck. Ask the wrong one and you’ll be shown the door.

At the end of an interview your potential employer will most likely ask if you have any questions. This is your chance to wow them with something thoughtful and insightful that proves you are just what the company needs. But in some cases it’s also the moment when you can ruin any chance you have at getting the gig.

So to give anyone on the hunt some ideas of questions to avoid, Buzzfeed posted a list of the most bizarre questions ever asked in an interview.

For example, one person said a woman who was interviewing for an engineering job asked if there would be any math involved. Another example, someone who asked how often they would be able to leave early. Don’t ask about quitting time when you haven’t been given a start time.

To see more questions people had the guts to ask, check out the original article now. Forget the cat, curiosity could kill your job search.
