How do you get along with others at work?
The interviewer wants to gauge if you can maintain healthy relationships in the workplace. They want to know more about the dynamics with your coworkers. Think about what you enjoyed about some of your relationships with past coworkers. Good communication, sense of humor, and support are all great qualities that make co-worker relationships healthy and harmonious.
Answer examples
"I get along great with my coworkers. I try to maintain a positive attitude and be supportive, whether I am offering to assist someone who is overwhelmed, or if I am taking time to listen to someone who is having a bad day."
"I have never had an issue when it comes to getting along with others at work. I am a conscious communicator and am sure to always express myself in a kind and professional manner."
"I can work with pretty much anyone. If we don't see eye to eye, I will work to find common ground."
Sales answer example
"I tend to get along really well with my coworkers, and if occasionally something comes up, I'm sure to address any issue so it doesn't fester and create a divisive work environment. I'm always trying to be supportive and a team player, whether or not I'm best friends with the person is not the issue or the point of work. More than anything, I want to always be positive and respectful, regardless of our personal differences or anything else."
Retail answer example
"I am a people person and have generally loved all of my coworkers. Typically, I've learned to just love them for their quirks and be glad I don't live with them, and move on with my life. If they're negative, the longest I'm with them at any one time is about 9 hours, and I can handle most anything for that time."
Teacher answer example
"I get along with most anyone I work with, teaching coworkers, supervisors, students, or parents. I know my job is to find common ground no matter what, so I always look for the best. Even when there are folks who disagree with my teaching style or what have you, I look to see it from their perspective and, especially if it's a student, I work to find a way in which I can reach him or her so I can be most effective."
Marketing answer example
"I generally enjoy the people I work with and can get along with anyone. I have actually made some of my closest friends from different workplaces, and I know how important relationships in the office are for not only camaraderie but also for accomplishing tasks within your team."
