I find that sometimes you have to shout, especially if it is windy or noisy, and sometimes you have to hit people to get their attention, so bring a long thin stick with you.
Another dumb question designed for them to see your reaction. These are stress-interview style questions. You could answer "Well, I used to be able to see out of both eyes and I didn't have that limp I got now...."
This is incredibly subjective and borderline rude to ask in an interview. Be careful how to craft a response for a company that doesn't value their employees' education.
Don't interview here if you are recently laid off rom a position as the interview process is bruising to say the least. HR needs to work out a better way of letting candidates know they didn't get the job other than sitting them down like they are being fired. A simple folllow up email or phone call the next day will suffice. It is a lot to ask candidates to do mutiple projects over an entitire day and then "fire" then from the interview. Very unnecessary
I said research and understand the market. I was told the correct answer was understand the consumer.
i agree... they do stupid things like this all the time w/ new employees and current employees who are trying to interview for a internal job.
Research and planning is critical for building a right new product. This involves understanding the customer needs (would you develop a product for which there is no market?), competitive landscape, business needs, climate (regulations etc.) and how the new product fits in the company strategy (would it bring new market etc.).
