The Most Inappropriate Interview Questions 9 Real People Have Ever Been Asked
Some interview questions are difficult to answer.
Others should never be answered, especially in an office environment.
London-based employment law firm Thomas Mansfield asked professionals to share the worst, most inappropriate interview questions they've ever been asked.
The firm asked each grad to write the question on a piece of paper, along with their degree, to further reiterate: no, my expertise has nothing to do with this assumption.
The questions were sexist, racist, and overall, bafflingly presumptuous.
Interviews are difficult enough for job seekers as it stands. Between preparing appropriately and writing a great thank you note to worry about, how to answer a question on parenthood or politics should be the furthest thing from the applicant's mind.
However unpleasant the situation may be, if you happen to encounter an inappropriate question during an interview, all hope is not lost. Be aware of which questions are illegal, then brush up on how to answer them.
