Got a hankering to work at Netflix? Even if the answer is no, these Netflix interview questions compiled by Business Insider, via Glassdoor, are still pretty interesting. Here's a sample of five:

  • "How many cans of paint would you need to paint one wing of a 747?" (To a marketing manager candidate)
  • "Tell me something that you did in the past, but don't want to do ever again." (To an engineer candidate)

  • "A customer calls and angrily tells you that they ordered Barney (or similar toddler show) for their kid. The kid can work the DVD player, and knows the Netflix envelope. When the movie arrived the kid grabs it and pops it in. Turns out it's a slasher movie. What do you do?" (To a potential customer service rep)
  • "What's your favorite TV show and movie, and how to you like to watch them?" (To a senior software engineer candidate)
  • "What does the word empathy mean?" (To a customer service rep candidate)
