Google has decided to do away with the infamous brainteasers with which they plagued interviewees. What changed their minds?

    Glad they have made the change! If I was confronted with irrelevant and immature questions in an interview like that I would get up and walk out the door!

    Yet again we are reminded that, despite all the staff selection quasi-tools rolled out in the last 20-30 years, there is no substitute for actually talking about a candidate's demonstrated skills and experience in relation to the interview position. Staff selection is an art not a science ! No more gimmicks please.

    Interviewer: How much does one plus one equal?

    Accounting Applicant: How much do you want it to equal?
