How to Answer
Stress can often be a regular part of the day to day work experience. Talk to the interviewer about which areas of your career are the most stressful. Ensure that your answer does not include a factor that would make you appear unfit for the position. For instance, if you are applying to be a software engineer for General Dynamics, you should not find writing code to be the most stressful part of your day.

How to Answer
It's always a great idea to have questions ready for the interviewer. Review the company website and other online resources to ensure the queries you have are not mundane, or redundant. The last thing an interviewer wants to hear is a list of items you could have found the answers for from merely watching a video on their company site!

Here are some sample questions:

- When would you like to have this position filled?
- How long has this role been vacant?
- Is this a replacement search or a newly created role?
- What is your favorite part about working here?
- What is the company's primary goal for this position in the next 12 months?
- Is there anything from my background and experience that I can clarify for you?
- What do you see as the most significant change in this industry over the past three years?
- Is there any reason why you would not hire me?

Question 4 of 30

How to Answer
General Dynamics provides a lot of great information on their diversity and inclusion plan, on their website. You can easily see they are committed to promoting diversity across the board. One of their beliefs is that a diverse workplace yields better results than a workplace that is lacking variety. They want to know that you will embrace difference of perspectives in the workplace. Are you accustomed to working with a very large or diverse team of individuals? Assure the interviewer that you can handle an environment that offers diversity.

Question 5 of 30
Communication is one of the biggest keys to success at General Dynamics. When have your communication skills benefitted your team?
Click To View Answers
How to Answer
General Dynamics employs thousands of people which means that communication between teams needs to be crystal clear. The interviewer would like to know how your communication skills have benefited your team in the past. Strong communication skills are required to be an active leader, whether you are in a formal leadership role or not. How have your communication skills helped your team in the past?

If you are struggling to come up with an answer to this question, here are a few examples that should turn the gears and help you think of a time when you communicated a message that benefited your co-workers.

- Maybe you were the first to hear of new corporate policy, and you alerted your co-workers to the new changes.
- Perhaps you created an efficient way to streamline a process, and you informed your team about this.
- Maybe you found a new product or service that had a benefit to your organization.
- Perhaps you realized an error in a project, and you alerted everyone of this before it became a significant problem.

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
