Our interview questions and answers do not represent any organization, school, or company on our site. Interview questions and answer examples and any other content may be used else where on the site. We do not claim our questions will be asked in any interview you may have. Our goal is to create interview questions and answers that will best prepare you for your interview, and that means we do not want you to memorize our answers. You must create your own answers, and be prepared for any interview question in any interview.
“Theyd inform you of my habit of going above and beyond, and that I view the basics of my job as putting my all in, doing my best to anticipate the needs of my superiors, and doing everything I can to make their job easier. Basically, Im always managing up in the best definition of what that means. With that, as far as my flaws, theyd tell you Im eager to learn from my mistakes and grow and take responsibility for my actions to the extreme. So my supervisor would say Im the only person wholl ever throw me under the bus, and that I am honest to a fault.”
The purpose of this page is to help you prepare for your job interview. We do this by creating interview questions that we think you might be asked. We hire professional interviewers (people with multiple years of experience interviewing candidates) to help us create our interview questions and write answer examples. We do not have advertisements on our pages but we do try to make money through paid-memberships.
Every job has work that an employee will find challenging. You want to know how candidates will handle the challenging work to ensure it gets done. For example, some employees may engage their time management skills and tackle difficult work in the beginning of the day when they have more energy and fewer distractions.
Ideally, business process improvement should be part of every job, from those in entry level positions up to the top executive.

A candidates answer to this question can help you determine whether they are a good fit for the job. Look for whether their “likes” align with the job opening and whether their “dislikes” conflict with the job and your companys culture. For example, if the candidate says that they disliked the fast-paced nature of their previous job and you know your work environment shares that characteristic, this could be an indication that the job isnt a good fit. In these cases, ask follow-up questions to help identify whether a conflict exists.
