Why are manhole covers round?

4 Answers

They are round so that they cannot fall through the hole, a square cover would fall through if placed on the right angle Less

This question has an answer the interviewer *wants* to hear, and a *real* answer. The answers above come close to what the interviewer wants to hear, but the real answer is not nearly as pleasant... Microsoft should know better... the manhole covers at its Redmond site aren't even round! They are rectangular with curved corners. No trained individual would ever roll a manhole cover. They weigh a great deal and would pose a threat of injury if they were to fall on a hand or foot. Manhole covers are removed by use of a metal pole with a hook. They are slid or dragged where they need to go. In addition, there are numerous polygonal shapes that will not fall in on their own perimeter. And if you wanted to be absolutely certain a cover won't fall in a hole, you would just make every dimension of the cover larger than the largest dimension of the hole. (In fact, all covers today are larger than the holes they protect... even the circles.) The best , correct, answer as to why any given manhole cover is round is because the pipe which it caps is round. In fact, most manhole pipes have an inset lip forcing the cover to be round to fit within a circular projection. When you see curved rectangular covers, it is because the opening is a curved-corner rectangle. Again, this shape has a lip and a protrusion on the edges to hold it in place. Manhole covers are designed to fit the concrete, masonry, or metal cavities they are created to protect. This is the only true answer. Now, if the interviewer wanted to ask why the manhole pipes were round, that would be an entirely different question. I leave the research about Roman Aqueducts to the reader. Less

Easier to move round manhole covers around by rolling them. Also, easier to make a round hole than a square one Less

As per Richard Gonzalez "Spot on", " You knocked it out of the park", " I'm satisfied with the answers you provided". Less

Richard Gonzalez the Site Manager and Joe Pollock, the Field HR Manager are Shady! I went to an interview with these 2 jokers and the interview went well till pay was discussed. They wanted me to take an Field HR Manager role for 15 to 17 an hour. i told them I made more than that in my current role. Joe Pollock said to me and Richard Gonzalez agreed, that "because I didn't build it" meaning because I didn't build the site with recruiting, staffing, organize the file, that the role would be more like an HR Clerk?......I applied for an Field HR Manager role, I received email confirmation that the interview was for an Field HR Manager role, and yet these people did a bait and switch on me? Later in the interview both Richard and Joe, had the nerve, to say "don't think that the pay is a step back, think of the future opportunities, business is growing and new accounts are being gained". To which Joe Pollock, said "yea, Orlando Field HR Manager, pays 60 to 70k"... Are you serious? Are you kidding me?! That was the salary I expected from the job I was interviewing for, not being scammed to take an HR Clerk job, with the responsibilities on the job description for the Field HR Manager role. In the interview I asked the number and what was the demographics of the employees? Joe Pollock said near 100 and the majority are "Caribbean" people. To which he added they are suspicious of management and like to test the boundaries as all drivers are union backed. interesting assessment Mr. Joe Pollock. To conclude, these jokers, Richard Gonzalez and Joe Pollock are bad news. They think they can hire some misinformed person for jobs at their location. They offered me $15- $17 an hour for the Field HR Manager role. The average of 15-17 is $16 $16x2080(work hours in year)= $33,280 a year Remember he said the same job in Orlando paid $60 to $70 a year. The average is $65,000 a year. $65,000/2080= $31.20 an hour. $31.25/2= $15.62... As you can see they wanted to hire an HR Field Manager at almost 50% the salary. These people wanted to save money with salary to probably pay for another position, such as a driver or maybe a bonus for them in being under budget for payroll. Who know , but who ever reads this, I hope you take into consideration that these asshat jokers are scamming people! Don't waste you time here! Less

Thank for writing this review. I saw the job ad and I was looking to apply but with your detailed account of what you experienced, I decided I should not waste my time. Less


Rather than asking me to answer questions about my experience and knowledge, I was asked a lot of "what if" and "How would you..." questions. I had a hard time answering as some scenarios seemed so esoteric.

I like Amanda's comment. It's certainly the answer I could laugh about but I'm not sure that it would get me anywhere in the interview. Less

I made my best guess of how to deal with something given the limited amount of information I had. Less

Politely let them know that you have been through scenario questions before and if they want answers to those questions you will be happy to do so but you need to charge a consulting fee. Less


How well do I work with ambiguity? Who has been the most impactful in my life? Why do I feel I am the best fit for the job?

3 Answers

Because I'm a HR smuck

Because I can look people straight in the face and lie

A non HR person taking HR interviews and rejecting candidates without any reason. very disappointing and unethical. First the consultant forces you to be on or before the time given and then make you wait for 2 hours . Company seemed good as per the reviews but the interview process is very lame. No one is bothered to give feedback or the reason of rejection even though the interview went near perfect.

If they are recruiting for a HR Manager, how can you assume that an HR person will interview you if they don't have an HR person? If you only were smart enough to convince a non HR person whom you will have to manage had you been selected Less

This was expected ! first get humiliated in interview then get questioned over forums by unknown people proving the company to be right. As per my experience, if there is no HR person then the higher authority in management is required to take the interview and not someone who just knows to speak in english and have zero functional knowledge !!
