We have heard a lot about interviewing at Google and the sorts of bizarre questions hiring managers there ask. “If you were an animal, what would you be?” “What shall we have for dinner?”

Lots of people can probably remember going through a three or four stage interview process. Sometimes this seems extreme but it’s usually rational in that allows the company and the candidate to go on several “dates” to really get to know each other.

Here are some really extreme interview processes.

Tafelmusik, the wonderful baroque orchestra here in Toronto is going to replace their current their current musical director. Jean Lamon is going to step down after 33 years and an Order of Canada citation. A search committee has been formed and they will have whittled the candidates down to a short list by the fall when the concert season begins.

Get this: one of the interviews is with the audience. Each short listed candidate will have to lead the orchestra in a full concert, rehearsals and all. Talk about a panel interview! Not just the entire orchestra but the whole audience as well!

I’m not sure if this is really what happens at Ikea but it looks about right.
