Global recruitment company, Glassdoor, has updated its list of the toughest job interview questions, detailing the hardest questions being asked by some of the biggest companies in the world right now.
The questions are based on 27 different fields and are ranked on how “tough” they are to answer based on expert analysis and community feedback.
What Makes an Interview Tough?
According to new Glassdoor economic research, the following are factors that drive interview difficulty: Number of interview screens, company size, type of employer (public vs. private), education and age.
“While most of these don’t come as a surprise, we found that hospitals have the toughest job interview process with a 9.7 percent higher difficulty rating compared to the average. Non-profits followed with 9.6 percent,” noted the report.
The report also found that gender does not have any affect on interview difficulty — it appears most employers apply the same rigor to interview processes to male and female candidates.
