"Job candidates at employers across all industries should be ready to answer any question, from the most basic to the most challenging," says Susan Underwood, Glassdoor's head of global recruiting and talent acquisition. "Employers are asking tough interview questions to test a job candidate's critical thinking skills, see how they problem solve on the spot, and gauge how they approach difficult situations.

Employers want to determine how different candidates respond to challenges, and those who respond well may have the edge when it comes to receiving a job offer."

Interestingly, Glassdoor found that there is a statistical link between a tough interview process and greater employee satisfaction. Across six countries, more challenging interviews upfront were associated with higher employee satisfaction later on.

Here are some of the strangest and most challenging questions companies are asking job candidates right now, :

Here is one example:
'When a hot dog expands, in which direction does it split and why?' —SpaceX Propulsion Structural Analyst job candidate
