13. I asked her how she would go about a specific task. She said "I don't know how, but I'm confident I could Google it and learn quickly."

Amazing how many people don't do that.

14. I was interviewing a lady and asked, "What's your proudest achievement?" She teared up a bit and responded "When my daughter told me that even though I'm still overweight, she was just happy that I wasn't on crack anymore." Honesty is the best policy folks.

15. When I worked at KFC, I interviewed a guy that had just been fired from McDonald's. He told me how he [messed] up, said he had just had a kid, and was kicked out of his house. The fact that he was completely honest with me was impressive. He promised he would not make the same mistake working for me. I took a chance on him, and he wound up being one of the best employees I ever had.

16. While doing a group interview (letting my team of 10 or so interview 3 or 4 candidates at the same time) we got on the subject of zombie survival.

Our key zombie survival guy talked about getting upstairs, so you were higher than the zombies. I asked one candidate "What is the first thing you'd do if zombies were attacking?"

Her answer - the first thing I'd do is get high. What she meant was, she'd go upstairs in a building. What she said was "I'd get high".

The room was silent for about 2 seconds before everyone erupted in laughter. It took her a minute to realize what she'd said. She also had a cat named Batman (and was smart, capable, and had the necessary skills.)

Instant hire.
