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

      How to Answer

      In which situation are you the happiest and most productive? Talk to the interviewer about your preference when it comes to teamwork or working individually. 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.

      Darby'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."

      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."
