Stupid Interview Questions - Jdate Edition

It's not unusual for a Hollywood exec to flirt with or even date their assistants. And some assistants rather enjoy the Remora/Host relationship. But these pairings usually come after months of late nights working together, a few drinks and the conclusion of divorce proceedings.

Some executives can't wait that long. These people use the staffing process as screening for a date. Thus I offer the following question one of my loyal readers received during a job interview...

What's your favorite color?

You couldn't come up with a better line than that? There are hundreds of cheesy pick-up lines. Might I suggest next time you use one of your high-priced writer clients to craft you something slightly more romantic?

If you were the victim of a dumb interview question, please send them along to I promise your identity will be protected.

Pick up Lines said...

Probably the dumbest interview question I've been asked in a while is:

Would you step over everyone in this office to get to the top? Please answer honestly as this will determine one of your assessment points.

Can you believe that??
