Forget being Smarter Than a 5th Grader, do you think you’re smarter than a Google Executive? Companies like Google are special, once in a lifetime companies. They are shaping the future of the world, and delivering life changing products.
They hire only the best, and reward them and even their families with perks the rest of us can only dream of. If an employee dies, the spouse get’s half of the employee’s salary for ten years.
It’s no wonder, why individuals from all over the world flock to Google for a chance to be a part of something great.
That said, you can’t possibly think that this is going to be your run-of-the-mill interview process. No sir. You’re going to be asked outside the box interview questions and asked to solve puzzles.
There is one question, however, that no one (including executives) has answered correctly. We have the interview question below.
You are the CEO of Google and have to decide on a comprehensive strategy for the company before some very important employees leave due to a lack of a plan. There are four key executives that are fighting for budget and resources and you the CEO need to decide how to allocate them or the company may implode through indecision. After many, many months, you finally make up your mind and decide to tell the executives in a closed room session.
Later, the executives can be heard arguing about the new budget and resource allocation from the CEO. Can you make sense of it given the information below?
Mr. Search, Mr. Enterprise, Ms. Mobile and Ms. Broadband are all saying different things:
Three of them are truth tellers and one is a deceiver. Who received the largest share of the budget and resources and who received the least?
1.Mr. Enterprise says Mr. Search is monopolizing all of the resources but still received more budget and resources than him.
2.Ms. Mobile claims Ms. Broadband is spending too much money to build the ultimately money-losing network and received the third (out of four) most budget.
3.Mr. Search claims that he doesn’t live within a reality distortion field and is still the top dog of the organization and received a larger budget than Ms. Mobile or Ms. Broadband
4.Ms. Broadband claims Ms. Mobile has her wires crossed and received the least share of the budget.
5.Mr. Enterprise said that despite their bickering, Ms. Mobile received more budget & resources than Ms. Broadband.
6.Ms. Mobile pointed at the 5 year growth charts for mobile devices and claimed she received either the most or second most budget and resource allocation
7. Mr. Search maintains that Mr. Enterprise is a distraction and received a smaller budget than Ms. Broadband
8.Ms. Broadband argues that she and Mr. Enterprise received the largest and second largest budget (respectively) because of their importance to the company.
