Consider yourself lucky that you didn't get the job

unexpected questions are irrelevant here, they stay on topic. The most unexpected question was if you are planning on staying with our company, what aspect of your job requirements are you most likely going to have slip as your work begins to become more habitual than a newer job like after the first six months to a year. I thought it was an interesting yet difficult question because usually an employer would ask what your weaknesses may be, but the way it was worded was simple after thinking about it... the interviewer wanted to see if you would continue with a job and eventually get lazy and skip out on certain tasks that you as a manager are/would be entitled to do on a daily basis.

The interview questions were the typical ones regarding where I came from and why I'm interested in joining their company. All in all, the sales director (man) seemed pleasant, knowledgeable and could likely sell ice to an eskimo. He seemed the classic snake oil salesman. The VP of Sales (lady) was the most pedantic person I've ever come across. She seemed the type that would manage others through intimidation and below-the-belt tactics. I was then invited to lunch by the same guy (inside sales manager) who took me to the airport afterward.
