Question 1 of 26
What kind of people do you enjoy working with?
How to Answer
Culture fit is a significant factor when looking for a new position. Talk to the interviewer about the types of personalities that you best work with. Be sure to remain positive and avoid using this as an opportunity to speak poorly of previous colleagues.

Answer Example
"I best enjoy working with individuals who are driven, positive, energetic, and take accountability for their work. I do have the ability to work with a large variety of individuals; however, these are the ideal traits I would see in future colleagues."
Answer Example
"I work well with a wide variety of personalities; however, I work best with those who are honest and hard working. Working alongside like-minded people, versus those you are at odds with, always makes a project run smoother."

Question 3 of 26
If you could start your career over again, what direction would you take?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
A hiring manager will be able to tell a lot about your personality by learning about your other career interests. If you could do anything over, what would you do, and why? Avoid saying you would not pick the career specialty you are in now.

Answer Example
"I certainly do not regret the direction I have taken my career; however, if I had to start over in a new direction completely I would likely pursue a degree in engineering. As I have learned more about building and remodeling homes, I think I would love to be a structural engineer."
Answer Example
"If I had to start my career over again, I would take the same direction! Working in this industry has been incredibly fulfilling for me, and I have zero regrets with the path my career has taken me."

Question 4 of 26
When were you able to resolve a problem within work?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Problem-solving and dispute resolution are fundamental skills to possess. Display to the interviewer that you are capable of problem-solving within the workplace.

Answer Example
"In my most recent position we had a consistent problem with employees showing up late for their shifts or calling in sick at the very last moment. Rather than the typical documenting and reprimanding style that management usually takes, I decided to track the results of an accountability reward system. For 180 days, my employees received a reward for coming to work 10 minutes early. Also, for every month with zero sick days, a bonus was added. In the end, we awarded those with perfect attendance a $600 bonus. The bonus' cost us less money, in the end than the cost of lowered productivity due to absent employees. The program was a success, and upper management chose to keep it implemented for another six months. We will re-assess in December, but it seems to be working very well."
Answer Example
"We have a problem with being short on labor hands quite often, due to the high employee turnover in our industry. I solved this issue by engaging a placement agency that specializes in temporary labor staffing. Whenever we are short on labor hands, they have a roster of individuals we can hire last minute and for the short term. Surprisingly, before I started with this company, they had never utilized this resource. Everyone is quite pleased with how this has worked out so far."

Question 5 of 26
Give me an example of a time when you had to make a decision without all the information you needed.
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Everyone has difficult decisions they have made in their career where little information was present. Focus on a choice you made in your job where you wanted more time to gather information, but instead, had to make a fast decision. Remember to pick an example that results in a positive outcome.

Answer Example
"This happens rather frequently in home remodeling. Each time we came to an uncertain circumstance, I would consult with the project manager and each contractor involved in that arena. If the homeowner needed to be contacted, I would contact them. Rarely we would make a decision without knowing exactly which way forward we were supposed to go."
Answer Example
"Depending on the outcome, I would almost never make a decision without knowing if this was the correct way of doing things. Also, I would try to get a feel for the project manager and the homeowner. Whether or not the homeowner has a history of picking out every single detail in their home vs a homeowner that never wants to make a decision."

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.
