A recent article over at Time Magazine indicates “extreme interviewing” has become all the rage in today’s competitive job search.
It appears some employers feel it is necessary to mess with your head to see if you are a fit for their team.
Google has been known for doing this for quite some time, but now companies of all shapes and sizes are jumping on board with the technique.

Now, tell us what happened!
We want to hear about the shenanigans you’ve endured.
Were you asked to tell the hiring manager what kind of fruit, tree, or car you think you are most like?
(Yes, I’ve had a bunch of job seekers share in interview prep sessions with me they got asked questions of this type.)
Or, did they have you do a brain teaser that left you befuddled?
We want to hear about the crazy stuff employers are doing to waste (uh, I mean occupy) your time.
