Interviewers testing job applicants with off-the-wall questions

PHOENIX -

For those that are out there job hunting and looking for a steady paycheck, performing well on a job interview is key.

You may be prepared for the standard interview questions, but are you prepared for some odd questions?

A new survey says you better be prepared for strange questions.

The people at glassdoor.com say employers are starting to ask some off-the-wall questions of applicants, all in an attempt to learn something about the job seeker that isn't on their resume.

And some of these are really odd. People submitted questions they've been asked on job interviews and they included…

How many quarters would you need to stack to reach the top of the Empire State building?

What do you think about when you are alone in the car?

If you had to pick, what kitchen utensil would you be?

The answer may not be important, but employers want to see you think on your feet, and maybe see your creativity.
