"I have found, in the past, that I work best in an individually driven environment; however, I can certainly be productive in a team-based setting as well."
"I can work successfully in either a team-based or individual environment. I am comfortable sharing the workload and responsibility with others, or hunkering down and getting it all done myself."
"I love having a team! I thrive when I can coach or mentor a new team member, and when my knowledge can help someone else succeed in their job. I have been successful, in the past, in more independent roles as well. Could you describe for me the preference here?"
"I am a fan of team-based positions where everyone has something unique to offer. It creates a great amount of diversity and generates ideas that may not have occurred in an individual based work environment."
"I have worked only in team-based roles so I would have to say that is my preference; however, I am an independent person as well and am sure I could thrive in either environment."
"I prefer to manage my day to day activities on an individual basis -simply because I like to work at a breakneck pace. With that said, my preference for collaboration comes after my cold calls, and I need the support of a team to generate fresh ideas for selling or to ensure all documents are up to standard."
"I work well in a team on certain tasks and then when it comes to my time in the classroom, I prefer to work on an individual basis. I am confident in my abilities as a teacher and my lesson plans are highly organized."
"I believe that I am a combination of both a team player and an independent worker. I feel comfortable while working with a team but if there is a task that I have to handle all on my own, then I do that without any inhibitions as well."
"I think my all-time favorite area of medicine is cardiology. There is something about the heart and how it functions that has always been interesting to me. If I had a choice of specialty, that would certainly be it. However, I love what I do and I am excited about the possibility of becoming a part of your team. Having said that, I would accept an offer of employment, regardless of the area of specialty."
"I enjoy working on a team because I love getting input from my co-workers, but I also enjoy working independently."
