Think you hit a nerve with this one?
Yes, I am picking that up loud and clear
If asked that question at a job interview I would walk out the door.
Good for you!! I believe assessing "organizational fit" is as much the candidate's responsibility as it is the hiring committee's...if you could immediately determine the organization is not for you, you would be saving all parties involved valuable time from proceeding with the normal formalities of the interview process by walking out at the onset. Alas, I do not have the same luxury from the other side of the table, as my general counsel would be none too pleased.
Don't insult highly trained professionals with parlor games, I know, I am one.
We will just have to agree to disagree on this one as you are obviously firm in your position, but I can assure that these sort of questions are more much than "parlor games"...unless that is, you really believe Google, Apple, Amazon, IBM, Microsoft, Goldman Sachs, AT&T, Intel, UBS, US Bank, etc, etc, etc, invest their time and resources in these type of questions in their hiring processes to simply toy with candidates for their own amusement.
Oh yea, by the way, many candies are manufactured using methods used in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry, I could exactly explain how they are manufactured, and why those mehtods are used. What would you say then?
Since you asked...I would not say much, because that is really not the point of the question.
