    Do you prefer to work in a team-based position or individually?

      How to Answer

      Depending on the role you are interviewing for at Kaiser Permanente, a majority of the work could be in a team-based environment. Conversely, you could be relied upon to work solo a majority of the time and need the ability to make quick decisions on your own. Talk to the interviewer about your preference when it comes to teamwork or working individually and be sure to avoid pigeonholing yourself into one particular scenario (ie: I only like to work by myself). You may work well without the need for much management or direction, or perhaps you are better driven in a collaborative and team-led environment. Either way, be honest with the interviewer about your preferences without leaning negatively, either way. As well, a thorough read through of the job description will give you some insight into the type of environment you would be joining at Kaiser Permanente.

      Ryan's Answer

      "Whether I am doing an independent project or working in a team environment, I always give my best. I enjoy the camaraderie of working in a team, but I can be successful working autonomously as well. If it is fair to ask, can you talk about the type of environment I would be joining at Kaiser Permanente?"

      Ryan's Answer

      "I have found, in the past, that I work well in an individually driven environment; however, I can certainly be productive in a team-based setting as well."

      "I work good with minimum supervision, but I also enjoy working with a team. Either way, I always do my best, and I make sure the job is done the way it suppose to be."

      "I enjoy working in a team. At my last job, I had the best group, and we worked together well. I also enjoyed working independently when there were days I was the only technician since my days went by so fast."

      Rachelle's Answer

      You are able to operate well in both situations, which is fantastic. You sound very enthusiastic about your last role, which is always a positive for any hiring authority to see.
