Campbell Soup Company

Pretty standard behavioral questions for the role. Most unexpected (and, in my opinion, most inappropriate) questions "What did your father do for a living?" followed by "and what about mom?"

I was a little shocked at the irrelevancy of the question about my parents given my 20+ year work history. After that question, I decided I would not want to work for the organization or this team in any case, but politely completed the interview process. These interviewers could greatly benefit from a class in behavioral based interviewing, understanding appropriate interview questions, and allowing the candidate to finish the answers before interrupting.

Given your 20+ work history, it's surprising you were asked this question. I've known this to be a typical question for someone with less experience. The reasoning I've always heard for asking this question is that it's surprising how many people actually don't know and understand what their parents work entails. Depending on how in detail you can discuss the profession, it is supposed to indicate how inquisitive you are. I've heard of a few I-Banks and consulting companies will ask, though its usually because they're looking to see if you were handed everything or if you actually had to work for what you wanted. (Though I would argue successful parents doesn't always equate to children who have never worked.)
