Problems?  Usually they just ask me inane esoteric questions which have no relevance on my job performance.  "If you could be any person in history, who would you be?"  I'm not sure what I answered, but it probably was a Viking with an axe.  Like Hagar the Horrible, so I can decapitate the likes of you!

 

The worst are logic problems, because there's a fair chance you simply won't get the clever trick of looking at it, regardless of your intelligence. If you get it quickly, you look smart; if not, you might have just lost your chance at that job. At least with most technical questions they might ask there is some sort of thought process that you follow which shows your relative aptitude. Most logical puzzles you either get very quickly or are never going to get...gah.

Yeah.  I know what you are saying.  I am generally good at those, so I don't mind them.  Somewhere along the way (early) I got lazy in math and now I wish I hadn't.

Well, when the bank you're in charge of loses 1.5 billion, and you get a 800k paypacket, it's got a funny way of dying.

 

The bills are not going to pay themselves.

 

It is funny how that works.
