Tell me about the type of team members you dislike working with.
TIPS TO PREPARE
TOP ANSWERS
Example #1
"I prefer to work with those who are punctual, reliable, and can take accountability for their workload. With that said, I understand that I can only be responsible for my work ethic, so I do not allow any delinquent co-workers to affect my performance."
Example #2
"I can get along with a broad range of people, but I choose not to work too closely with those who possess a negative outlook. I like to see the bright side of things, even on the tough days."
Example #3
"I can work with most personalities; however, I dislike working with others who do not pull their weight and expect others to pick up their slack. It's not fair to the team, and it's frustrating. When this has happened in the past, I have addressed it with the team member."
Example #4
"As a seasoned manager, I understand that challenging personality types will almost always be present. What I do to combat this is, I get to know those challenging people a bit better, in hopes to understand their mentality or approach. This method of management allows me to find common ground with almost anyone."
Example #5
"I certainly prefer to work with like-minded people who are go-getters and understand the meaning of hard work. It can be frustrating to work with people who have no drive or are lazy in general, but I ignore them and go about my day."
Example #6
"Negative people, or those that are challenging to get through to, will be anywhere. You can put me in almost any work situation, and I will find a way to thrive! I am highly energetic which means that my positivity and enthusiasm often rubs off on even the dullest people."
Example #7
"I have been an educator for eight years which means that I have come across a vast range of personalities with it comes to students, parents, and faculty. I do not particularly enjoy working with people who are bullies or try to drag other people down, but that is par for the course in any work situation. I focus on delivering positivity and encouragement to counteract those who do not think the same way as I do."
Example #8
"I prefer to work with those who are punctual, reliable, and can take accountability for their workload. With that said, I understand that I can only be responsible for my work ethic, so I do not allow any delinquent co-workers to affect my performance."

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.
