What do you think you might dislike about this job?
Advice
All jobs can have frustrating moments. If this is your first time to work in the role, you might not know all of the different problems that you might anticipate. A good response might be, "Even though I know there might be some challenges, especially dealing with difficult customers, I don't think that will be a problem for me. My experience in customer service has helped me understand how to listen, empathize and deal with conflict and I feel confident I can do that in this role." To show you have some knowledge of the difficulties you may encounter, share them. And if you're not sure, ask. This is an opportunity for you to discuss a little more in depth how you might handle some of the challenging aspects of the role.

"Even though I know there might be some challenges, especially dealing with difficult customers, I don't think that will be a problem for me. My experience in customer service has helped me understand how to listen, empathize and deal with conflict and I feel confident I can do that in this role."
"I would never want to enter into a job thinking that there are things I would dislike. However, as a realist - I understand that there may be situations that I don't particularly enjoy. If I had to choose a particular part of the role that I may dislike it would probably be the customer dispute resolution. I am confident in my abilities with dispute resolution but I don't particularly love it."
"Every job has duties that are not the most enjoyable. I try not to focus on that. But, if I had to guess, I would say the paperwork. Paperwork is always tedious, but necessary."

What do you think you might dislike about this job?
1.
The work shouldn't divide unequally among the team member.
2.
I do not dislike anything about working. I love to work and give it my all.
3.
Like most human beings, I enjoy time off but if a person dislikes their chosen career perhaps they should make a change, I will admit there are going to be frustrating situations, issues and people but those moments will pass. It is our responsibility to learn from these events, not dwell on them.
