Awkward Interview Questions watch

    • Thread Starter

    Tell us what awkward questions you've been asked in interviews - be it a job interview, paper article, background check etc...

    I lived in Dubai for a while, moved there when I was 13. A few months in, someone from the Khaleej Times came to ask me some questions for an article (which I thought would be just talking about young people and music or something). The journalist asked me:

    "What do you think gives you the right to oppress our culture and insult our traditions by forcing your western music on innocent Emiratis and poisoning young minds with your classical composing?"

    One hell of a welcome eh :P

    He was like "If you want the job you gotta compromise"
    I was like " What compromise?"
    He was like " The one involving your private parts"
    I was like " Hell nah !!! "
