Question 2 of 32
How do you motivate your fellow team members?
View Answers
How to Answer
You don't have to be a manager or a team leader to motivate others. Offering a listening ear or providing words of encouragement can make a world of difference to your coworkers. Sometimes, just being a positive influence and showing up consistently can also make a difference.

If you have worked in a leadership role, think of ways you helped set clear goals or helped individuals cultivate a new skill. Reflect on your experience and share some ideas that you have helped encourage others to keep up the good work!

Question 3 of 32
Do you prefer to work in a team based position or individually?
View Answers
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).

Question 4 of 32
What is your current salary?
View Answers
How to Answer
A potential employer will often base their offer on your current salary. You should be transparent about your most recent earnings and be prepared to back up any salary requests.

Question 5 of 32
What are you looking for in a job?
View Answers
How to Answer
This can be a tricky question to answer if you've never had a job before! Think about your education and any volunteer experience you have received or training. What are some aspects of those experience that you enjoyed? For many people, working in an environment that is positive helps them to feel more motivated and often more productive. Your coworkers can have a huge influence on your experience as well. If you work with positive and encouraging people, you will feel appreciated and cared for at work. Review the job description so that you can also share some of what you're looking forward to learning. The most exciting part of a new job is that you have so much room to grow and learn. This is the beginning of your career so get excited!

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.
