The Best Answer to the Most Annoying Interview Question

The other week, I was helping my sister Sophie prep for a job interview. I asked the dreaded question—"What's your biggest weakness?"—and she answered...


PUPPIES!

I love it. :) But seriously, isn't that the most annoying interview question? On a related note, a friend of mine was interviewing for med school and was asked, "Why does a pretty girl like you want to go to med school?" Straight from an episode of Mad Men!

So, what is your biggest weakness? Mine, in no particular order, are potato chips, french fries, Teen Mom, babies and puppies. (I'm so predictable.)

I had a job interview for a store manager position and was asked what my SEVEN strengths and SEVEN weaknesses were! I flew through my strengths but when we got to the weaknesses it was a bit ridiculous. I drew a blank after the first two. It was a very awkward interview. I got offered the job even though I couldn't provide as many weaknesses as they wanted, but turned it down for another position. It was a very odd experience.

Oh no, Mila! You got the most annoying question...7 times?! Who does that? I’m glad you turned it down for something else! haha

Hahah! I was not expecting this. Great post, Sob :)

This is hilarious! My answer for that weakness interview question was always a boring one. I always said my ambition was my weakness because it leads me to bite off more than I can chew.

This answer is WAY better!

My weakness is I bored easily, which is bad if I ever apply for a job in a corporate world. And kittens and cats. I call out to them, talk to them, pet them, and feed them anytime, anywhere; even the strays.
