Interview questions - hit me

I'm about to interview for the first time in 5+ years. I don't have the slightest clue what's coming. I've heard about the "sell me this pen" and scenario based stuff, but would love some current real world examples.

The sell me this pen scenario is outdated and I havenโ€™t heard many good sales orgs doing that. They might have you pitch your product or run a discovery though which is totally fair game
