Question 2 of 30
What is your greatest weakness? What are you doing to improve it?
Professional Answers Preview
"A weakness of mine is public speaking. In my last feedback with my supervisor, we discussed my weakness and we are now working together to improve it. He has given me the opportunity to interact with small groups to give me the practice that I need to one day speak to large audiences."
"My weakness is expecting my colleagues to perform at the level that I do. I've come to realize that not everyone puts 100% into their day like I do and that's ok. I will continue to give my best at work an inspire others to do so as well."
As a Bacteriology Technician, you have weaknesses and that's ok. This question will give you the opportunity to tell the interviewer what your weaknesses are and what you are doing to improve yourself. Don't choose a weakness that is a job requirement.

Question 4 of 30
How flexible is your schedule?
Professional Answers Preview
"I've worked under tight deadlines that required me to work longer hours. I have no problem being flexible, coming in early or staying late as needed."
"I'm very flexible on my hours. If a few days notice is possible that would make it easier for my husband and I to adjust our schedules."
Before going into the interview, do some research on the company, employee reviews and the job itself. Often you can find out about what to expect with hours or potential travel. If you are working for a 24-hour facility it's likely that you be working long hours.

Bacteriology technicians provide technical support to biological and medical scientists, engineers and other professionals in the fields of microbiology, agriculture, animal and plant biology, environment protection, molecular biology, health sciences and resource management. As a Bacteriology Technician you conduct laboratory tests and experiments, keep detailed logs of all activities, install, maintain and calibrate laboratory and field equipment, conduct standardized biological, biochemical and microbiological tests and analyze experimental data.

A Bacteriology Technician must complete a 2 or 3 year degree program in biochemical or chemical engineering technology. Excellent analytical skills are an essential requirement for this role. You spend long hours in a laboratory conducting research, analyzing results and logging every aspect of the research they've conducted.

Prospective employers will ask you questions that are aimed at determining your analytical skills. They will want to know details of any on-the-job experience that you've had.
