Question 5 of 30

What is the kindest thing a boss has ever said to you? How did the compliment make you feel, and did you agree with the praise?

The Goal

The interviewer wants to know if you can accept positive feedback. They also want to hear about your most significant strengths from the perspective of a former employer. The first goal of your response is to show that you are appropriately humble, coachable, and responsive to positive praise. The second goal of your answer is to highlight a compliment focused on a specific strength that you know is important to this role.

      What to Avoid

      Avoid sounding too modest or humble when you respond. Remember - the interviewer wants to know if you are the type of person capable of seeing your strengths. It's good to be a humble person, but it's also essential to graciously accept people's kind words about you and your work ethic.

      Pro Tip

      This question is another way for the interviewer to discover your greatest strengths. Since this question aims to find out the best qualities that others see in you, be prepared to talk about a compliment that spotlights a skill or strength that you know is important for the hiring company to see in their next hire.
