Answering Teamwork Questions

Ace 1000s of Interview Q&As

If I were to put you on a team project today, what questions would you have before beginning your work?

Example #1
"I am more of the type to go with the flow for the first day on a new team project. I want to observe the work habits of others and come into the team with some insight before jumping in with both feet."
Example #2
"The first question that I would ask is, who is working on this project, and what are each of their strengths and areas for improvement. Once I understand who I am working with, I will better understand my approach to the project."
Example #3
"My initial questions would be surrounding the client who we are working for, and what their end goal is. My favorite questions to ask are, "What are you hoping to gain from this project?", "What is your business' most significant pain point right now?", and "What part of this project is the most urgent for you?" These questions help me to assess how I should be approaching a project."
Example #4
"Before beginning my work on a team-based project, I would ask you questions about the other team members. I would ask how long each person has worked for your company, what their role is, and what they are best known for doing well. This way, I can join the team in a manner that compliments them, without stepping on any toes as the 'new guy.'"
Example #5
"If you put me on a team project today, which I would love, by the way, I would first ask you what you are hoping to achieve when it comes to the end goal. To know your motivation, be it financial, customer service, or researched base, would be beneficial information."
Example #6
"I believe that the best question for me to ask when starting on a team project, would be "What do you expect to be the biggest roadblock to my success?" By being aware of any specific roadblocks, I can focus on the areas perceived to be the most challenging. Sort of like a preemptive strike."
