    Is there any type of work environment that you dislike working in?

      How to Answer

      Kaiser Permanente takes great pride in having a very positive and nurturing environment. In asking this question, your interviewer wants you to talk openly and honestly about the types of work environments that you find hard to work in. No matter how you answer, your interviewer will be looking to hear that you can overcome any negative work environment and express your ability to do so by talking about a time you overcame a tough situation in the past.

      Ryan's Answer

      "I once worked in a very difficult environment and toxicity really started with our leader. To help myself on a day-to-day basis, I tried to stay as positive as possible with others and wouldn't be the person to pass along negativity. In fact, if a particular rumor or bad news was being passed along, I would simply squash it and move on. I don't like environments that are littered with negativity, but always do my best to remain positive in these situations."

      Ryan's Answer

      "I prefer to focus on the positive, so if it's okay, I would like to share with you what my ideal work environment looks like. My ideal environment is organized, collaborative, positive, energetic, and encouraging. I love working with like-minded people who set challenging goals for themselves. I thrive when I work for supervisors who encourage curiosity and creativity in problem-solving."

      "I dislike when there's work politics. I also dislike when the morale of the lab is low."

      Lauren's Answer

      Take this as an opportunity to market yourself as a positive employee who can enhance a work environment.

      "I dislike working in a negative, low morale environment that is plagued with office politics. I am a very energetic, positive person who would like to contribute to a healthy, collaborative team."

      "I'm flexible to work in any environment. Companies hire a lot of people with a different way of thinking, and that could be a problem for some people. Still, as long you respect each other, do your job with a positive attitude, you can change any environment to a positive one."
