50 Classic Interview Questions and Answers

1. Introduce yourself

The most common questions in interviews. You need to prepare a statement in advance, and be careful not to let anyone notice that you have rehearsed beforehand. Unless the interviewer has special requirements, your answer should focus on the position you are applying for. You can talk about things you have done or occupations related to your position.

2. What do you know about our company

Before the interview, you must understand the company you are applying for, its current situation and future trends, and so on.

3. Why do you want to work for us

This question requires some thinking and is based on your prior knowledge of the company. On this issue, honesty is of the utmost importance, and whether you are honest is easy to be noticed by the interviewer. You can talk about long-term career planning.

4. How do your colleagues evaluate you

You have to prepare one or two colleagues' evaluation. You tell the interviewer: "My colleague Jill at Smith & Co. always says that I am the most diligent person she has ever met." The effect of this sentence is the same as Jill said in person to the interviewer.

5. In the past year, what have you done to improve yourself

The answer is as relevant as possible to the interview position. The scope of self-improvement is very wide, and you have to prepare some examples in advance.

6. Your value to the company

This is an opportunity for you to emphasize your strengths. Of course, these strengths should be related to the interview position. Prepare and think about this issue in advance.

7. Say a suggestion you have made

Prepare a good suggestion in advance, it must be adopted and succeeded. If the suggestion is related to the job interview, it will greatly add points.

8. Talk about your ability to work under pressure

You can say that you have been successful under various pressures. Provide an example related to the job interview.

9. Do you have any questions to ask

Prepare a few questions, such as "Where will I be arranged by the company" and "When can I start working for the company".

These problems have pitfalls:

10. How much do you expect to be paid

Heavyweight problem! If you answer first, you may lose, so don't answer. You can say: "This question is too difficult to answer" "Can you tell me the salary range?" In most cases, the interviewer will remove the mask and tell you the answer. If not, it may be related to the specific position, and they will give you a range.

11. Have you fired someone

Serious question! Don't underestimate the issue of firing, and don't let the interviewer feel that you like firing people. You should say that you will only do this when you think that firing someone is the right thing to do. If the premise is that the interests of the company conflict with personal interests, you are doing so to protect the interests of the company. Note that dismissal is different from temporary dismissal and layoffs.

12. What behaviors are you intolerable to colleagues

Trap question! Think hard, and then answer that your colleagues have no behavior that makes you intolerable. It is a good answer to briefly express that you seem to get along well with people.

13. Talk about the problems that exist between you and the leader

The biggest trap! This is a test whether you can speak badly about the leader. If you talk about your problems with the former leader, the interview may be smashed right away. Keep a positive attitude and don't remember the problems related to leadership.

14. Do you have blind spots

Cunning question! If you know your blind spot, it is not called blind spot. Don't disclose any personal information, let the interviewer find your shortcomings, don't tell them.

Answer these questions honestly:

15. Where do you want to be in the team

Answer honestly. If you think all kinds of positions are ok, explain this point.

16. Have you applied for other companies

Answer honestly, but don't stay in this area for too long. Topics focus on the job you are applying for, what you can do for the job, and other content will be distracting.

7. If you have enough money now, will you retire?

If you will, the answer is yes. However, since you need a job, it is what you want to do, and if you don’t want to retire, you don’t need to deliberately say yes.

18. Have you ever been required to resign

If not, say no. If so, answer honestly and briefly, and don't criticize the people and companies involved.

19. What can inspire your best performance at work?

This question varies from person to person, and only you can answer it. Good answers include "challenges" and "achievements."

20. Are you willing to work overtime

Answer honestly.

21. If necessary, are you willing to move?

If this is possible, you need to reach an agreement with your family before the interview. If you don't want to, don't lie to get a job, lest you regret it.

These questions can only be answered like this

22. Why hire you

Explain that your strengths can meet the needs of the company. Remember, don't compare with other competitors.

23. Do you have work experience in this industry

The answer should be as closely related to the interview position as possible. If you don't have relevant experience, try your best to rely on this.

24. Do you think your abilities exceed the job requirements

Regardless of your ability, answer you "very suitable for this position."

25. Why did you leave your previous job

Whatever the reason for leaving, don’t criticize your former company, former boss, and former colleague. It will make you look bad! Keep a positive and positive answer, and smile and talk about the reasons for leaving, such as "want to find opportunities to do special things."

26. Is your skill more suitable for this job or something else?

"This job!" Don't let the interviewer suspect that you want another job more.

27. Are you willing to put company interests above personal interests

This is a direct question of loyalty and dedication. Don't think too much about ethics and say "yes."

28. Do you think you are successful

Always say "yes" and briefly explain. For example, you have set some goals, have achieved some, and are currently working hard to achieve the remaining goals.

29. Do you know someone in our company

Pay attention to the company's regulations regarding relatives and friends working together. Don't mention your relatives or friends unless you have fully considered it.

30. Do you have a team spirit

Of course say "Yes". Prepare examples and describe in detail that you always think about the team rather than the individual. This can be a good proof of your team spirit. Don't brag, use a factual tone to tell, this is the key.

31. What is your work philosophy

The interviewer does not want to listen to the paper. "Do you have a strong desire to complete the work? Yes." This answer is most appropriate, but it is short, positive, and beneficial to the company.

32. Money or work, which is more important to you

"Money is important, but work is the most important." There is no better answer.

33. What will disappoint you at work

Don't talk about trivial things, don't hold a negative attitude. There are few security answers, such as "no challenge."

Answer these questions vaguely:

34. If you are hired, how long do you want to work?

Don’t be too specific, you can say: "I hope it’s a long time."

35. Talk about your ideal career?

36. What do you want to pursue in this job

Don't talk about specific answers to these two questions, it's easy to say something wrong! If you say that your ideal career is the job interviewed, the interviewer will doubt your honesty; if you say other occupations, the interviewer will doubt that you will be dissatisfied with the position if you are hired.

The best way is to remain neutral. For example, "a job I like to work in there, I like the people there, can make a contribution, and can't wait to start a job."

37. What kind of people would you refuse to work with?

Don't answer trivial content, it will make you look like a bitter woman. Good answers include "disloyalty to the company, violence, or illegality".

There are many good answers. For example, you set high standards for yourself and meet the standards; the results you make are successful; the boss tells you "you are successful".

Try to avoid patterned answers. "Environmental management" is a safe answer because it shows that you will manage according to different environments.
