Another seemingly innocuous interview question, this is actually a perfect opportunity to stand out and show your passion for and connection to the company and for job At Asahi Breweries. For example, if you found out about the gig through a friend or professional contact, name drop that person, then share why you were so excited about it. If you discovered the company through an event or article, share that. Even if you found the listing through a random job board, share what, specifically, caught your eye about the role.
If you answer either, just make sure you explain why. For example, “I would consider myself to be more analytical because Im good at examining a data set and then understanding how to interpret it in a business environment.” or “Im more of interpersonal person because I enjoy working and collaborating with my teammates and clients”
This is a classic brainteaser, which was reportedly first asked by a Microsoft interviewer. Heres how to “”solve”” this brainteaser (remember to speak and reason out loud while solving this brainteaser): Why are manhole covers round? Could there be a structural reason? Why arent manhole covers square? It would make it harder to fit with a cover. Youd have to rotate it exactly the right way. The pipes below are also round, so fitting them might be easier, as might be making them. So many manhole covers are round because they dont need to be rotated. There are no corners to deal with. Also, a round manhole cover wont fall into a hole because it was rotated the wrong way, so its safer. Looking at this, it seems corners are a problem. You cant cut yourself on a round manhole cover. And because its round, it can be more easily transported. One person can roll it.
Do the following steps: ☛ 1. Turn ON two switches, and leave one OFF. ☛ 2. Wait a few minutes. ☛ 3. Turn one switch from ON to OFF. One is now ON and two are OFF ☛ 4. Enter the room. – If the light is ON, it is controlled by the switch you left ON. – If the light bulb is OFF, touch it. If it is warm it is controlled by the switch you turned ON and OFF. If it is cold, it is controlled by the switch you never turned on.
This is a classic guesstimate question where you need to think aloud. And so first off you round the U.S. population to 300 million people (its actually about 315 million but rounding will be much easier and your interviewer will not score you lower for rounding). Then estimate how many people eat pizza. A decent educated guess is two out of every three people, or 200 million. Now lets say the average pizza-eating person eats pizza twice a month, and eats two slices at a time. Thats four slices a month. If the average slice of pizza is perhaps six inches at the base and 10 inches long, then the slice is 30 square inches of pizza. So, four pizza slices would be 120 square inches (30 times 4). Since one square foot equals 144 square inches (12 times 12), lets assume that each person who eats pizza eats one square foot per month. Since there are 200 million pizza-eating Americans, 200 million square feet of pizza are consumed in the U.S. each month. To summarize: 300 million people in America, 200 million eat pizza, average slice of pizza is six inches at the base and 10 inches long or 30 square inches, average American eats four slices of pizza a month, four pieces times 30 square inches equals 120 square inches (one square foot is 144 square inches), so lets assume one square foot per person, and thus one square foot times 200 million people equals 200 million square feet of pizza a month.
