Do you prefer working in a team environment or alone?
There are times when you may be asked to do both so I do not have a problem with either working alone or as a team member. Their are advantages to each one depending on each situation.
I work well in either conditions, and would be able to work in either depending on the situation.
It depends on the project - some I prefer to work on individually, while others I prefer with others.
Depending on a job that has to be done, I could work alone or on a team.
Either is fine, but I would rather work in a team.
In a team environment because it allows for a more efficient workplace.
Either whatever is needed.
There are advantages to both but a team environment allows more work to get done.
A team environment allows you to get more work done.
Both. It would depend on the task but most of the time a team can accomplish things in a much more timely manner with everyone chipping in.
I enjoy being part of a team and working independently. My current employer frequently assigns me any tasks that need to be performed individually because he says he knows he can trust me to get it done unsupervised.
I prefer to work in a team environment because is less stressful and working in a team environment will allow me to get more work done than by my self.
I definitely prefer working in a group environment because you get to interact and get to know so many different people.
I do not have a preference, I think that a team of creative minds working together to accomplish a goal can be extremely efficient, but I also enjoy the solitude, accomplished feeling, and focus of completing a task alone.
Both, there are some projects that require both and I am fine with that.
Team environment, but I have no qualms with getting a task done alone.
Each has their own benefits. Its satisfying being able to accomplish a task with a group, but empowering to complete a task on your own.
It depends on the job, but a team environment is what I prefer.
Either work for me depending on the task and what the most effective approach would be. I can do either.
I think that both have it pros and cons. The pros of working with a team is that it allowed everyone to take certain parts allowing you to complete a task faster, and it also improves your skills with working with people. The pros of working alone are you are responsible for the work and when you are finish there is a large sense of self satisfaction.
I prefer working as a member of a team, but I have worked alone on many tasks.
I prefer working in a team environment because I get to listen to the ideas of others.
I do not have a preference and know the pros for each: working in a team environment would allow diverse ideas to be brought to the table whereas working alone would allow more focus. It would depend on the situation.
Either one, whatever is good for the task at hand.
I love working with a team and alone. Whatever it takes to get the job completed. I get a sense of joy working together and also completing a task all by myself.
Depends on the situation. I can get a lot done working by myself, but sometimes you need that group setting to really flesh out an idea or to be effective in your job. And it keeps you sane too.
I can do either, but when working as a team things usually get done better and faster if everyone works together.
Either environment with fine. I enjoy working in a team environment and performing solitary tasks.
I can very easily adapt to either or. I can work on my own well and at a good pace but I also do not have an issue working in a team environment.
I wouldnt mind either, although if I were to pick, I would say team.
I can do both. I believe that certain tasks need a team to complete them whereas others are better done alone.
I dont have a preference sometimes a team effort allows the job to get done faster but I do enjoy the solitude of working alone on occasion.

Either or. While working alone it helps me become independent and learn how to figure things out on my own. While working with a group builds social skills and teaches you how to build team skills.
Team environment. I find that since as employees, we should all be working towards the common goal that is to make wegmans as great as possible. Such a feat would definitely not be possible by one man.

I can perform either way, but to answer the question I would prefer working on a team because having multiple points of view helps make things clearer/helps point out different things that may not have been noticed. It helps to have varying inputs to work off of because an individual may have successful ideas that you would not otherwise.
I prefer working in a team environment because working together not only gets things done quicker but to also gain friendships with coworkers.
Even though I work well either way and have worked to improve on my skills, I feel best working independently because I find i'm much more provocative and efficient while working, as it's all just a personal preference.

I would be fine with either one. I would like to contribute to the company.
I can work successfully on my own, but I far prefer interaction with others in bringing our goals to success.
