While looking for web sites with network protocol interview questions, I found the "Evil Interview Questions" debate on SAGE. The debate restored some of my faith that there are still some people out there who don't feel like you have to give impossible trick questions, trivia questions, or other types of questions that test other things besides knowledge of the job responsibilities. I also found an interesting article on how companies interview based on whether the candidate will fit into the corporate culture. A contrast is made between the chaotic startup of today and the bureaucratic IBM of yesterday.

It was encouraging to read about the one guy who decided such questions were invalid when faced with answering them himself.

I've never understood asking trick questions about a non-existent system or program, unless for some reason a major component of the job is spotting bluffs.

That article is kind of scary, it makes me wonder how people who are different in ways that don't have to do with job performance ever get hired.
