Interviewers, tired of asking the same old questions again and again, are posing unique interview questions to job seekers. Some of of which, seemingly have no right answer. Job seekers have reported being asked which they prefer, 'Star Wars' or 'Star Trek.' We're not talking about the usual head scratchers or about jobs where this information is relevant, such as at a comics store or special effects studio. No, organizations of all sizes, and in a variety of industries, are posing unusual questions to their interviewees.
