What type of manager brings out the best in you?
TIPS TO PREPARE
TOP ANSWERS
OUR COACH SAYS
Example #1
"I have worked with a wide range of personalities and management styles with great success. If I could express a preference, I feel that I am best with a manager who allows me autonomy while still investing time in me through engaged mentorship and continued training. Can you describe the management style here?"
Example #2
"I work best with managers who are highly communicative and approachable. I have stayed away from hierarchy based environments as I find they lack room for new ideas and creative thinking. How would you describe your management style?"
Example #3
"I prefer working for an executive team who give me goals and let me run with them, trusting that I have the management skills to align my team and get the job done right. I much prefer collaborative environments where trust is present."
Example #4
"I work best with a manager who sees themselves as a teacher or mentor to me. They can dictate daily tasks while painting the big picture and including me in the company goals and vision. Could you share with me how your management team embodies these qualities?"
Example #5
"I prefer a manager who is interested in nurturing their team members. I don't need hand-holding, but I like it when my manager takes an interest in me and encourages my growth and development. A great manager would encourage me by offering to be a knowledge resource and by introducing me to their favorite professional growth resources."
Example #6
"I find the most success when given some latitude to make the sales pitch and process my own. I value coaching and mentorship and am accountable to my manager, my goals, and the company's sales targets. With a bit of freedom to work, I am the most successful."
Example #7
"I thrive in a collaborative, team-focused environment. I work well in a team environment when all of the teachers are working together to build great content, lesson plans, and developing new means for optimum student development. When the department head is supportive of my goals and helps me to think creatively, I can continue to grow as a teacher."
Example #8
"I have worked with a wide range of personalities and management styles with great success. If I could express a preference, I feel that I am best with a manager who allows me autonomy while still investing time in me through mentor-ship and training. Can you describe the management style here?"
Example #9
" I appreciate a work environment where supervisors try to make personal connections with their employees."
Example #10
"In my current position as an anesthesiologist assistant, at a large academic medical center, I am lead for clinical education, so I have extensive experience in this area. I organize and develop a quarterly training program for newly hired employees who join the surgical team, including physician surgeons, nurses, and surgical techs. Anytime there is new anesthesia guidance or new monitoring systems we use, I am always sure to educate the surgical team in addition to the anesthesiology staff, to be sure they are aware of our practices and procedures."
Example #11
"I have worked with a wide range of personalities and management styles with great success. If I could express a preference, I feel that I am best with a manager who allows me autonomy while still investing time in me through mentorship and training. Can you describe the management style here?"
Example #12
"I work very well with a supervisor who gives me the direction at first but then allows me to take the lead in my learning. I respond really well to feedback and always like to know when there is room for improvement in my work."
Example #13
"When I worked with a client for about three months, I realized they were doing all their calculations manually. I created an Excel spreadsheet to show them how valuable the formulas were and how much time could be saved. They took my suggestion and implemented it, transforming a five-day process to a one-day process by removing all the menial manual work."

About Our Approach to Q&As
Our interview questions are created by writers, most of whom have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with the companies, careers or schools they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We strive to match our experts' background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
