Getting a great job at a great company isn’t easy, and that means their interview questions are going to be difficult. If you thought the usual interview fare like “tell me about yourself” is tough, wait til you see these.

The report, from Glassdoor, includes real questions you’ll get during interviews at popular companies like Blizzard, Disney, SpaceX, Twitter, Facebook, Apple, and more. For example, a mechanical design engineer hoping to score a gig at Apple might be asked:
“If you are in a boat with a boulder and you drop that boulder into the lake, how does the water level before and after you drop the boulder in the lake compare?”
Or, if you were hoping to be the new Solarwinds administrator at Blizzard Entertainment, you’d have to think outside the box:
“Sell me on one idea, and then sell me on the opposite of that idea.”
The questions all range from “can you solve this problem?” to “we want to get to know you better,” but they’re all pretty surprising. Whether you’re planning to interview for jobs at these companies or not, these questions can open your eyes a bit regarding how you should prepare. You can see all the questions at the link below.
