At the last interview I was at, a HR-rep kept asking followup questions to technical questions that struck me as blatantly stupid. Questions like "who do you ask if you get stuck?". My answer was "I hope I will have the opportunity to find that out."
During the course of the day I kept coming back to those questions. The HR-rep was quite young as well, and I assumed she probably just didn't know what to ask. But some part of me still believes there was a hint of guile in those questions.
Is there a point to asking a seemingly pointless or even stupid question?
