Question 3 of 30
Think about a difficult boss, professor or coworker. What made him or her difficult? How did you successfully interact with this person?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Show the interviewer that you work well with most personalities even though you recognize there are some folks out there who are quite difficult to please.

Think about that one person at work who is seen as hard to please. Perhaps there is someone at work who tries to intimidate others. Talk to the interviewer about what made this person challenging and what their relationship was to you. Avoid speaking poorly of anyone and be sure to end your response on a positive note.

Answer Example
"I once worked at a small clinic where the supervisor was very demanding. The owner had great intentions; however, his people skills were a little rough. I could see that he meant well, and I recognized that he wanted to do a lot of good things. When we interacted, I always took his feedback with the understanding that he didn't mean things as harshly as he might say them."
Answer Example
"I had a rocky start with a manager earlier in my career, because we had different expectations for the flow of the workday. Once we talked about it, we realized that our goals were very compatible, and we were able to work very successfully together for several years."

Question 4 of 30
Will you be willing to take a salary cut?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Hopefully, this question is being asked of you during your second or third interview. Salary negotiation is a real and sometimes an intimidating topic for people. Are you interviewing for a position that you know pays less? Maybe the selling factor is that there will be less drive time, more time with you family and less stress. Sometimes these reasons mean more to you than money.

Answer Example
"Currently I'm making approximately $20K more a year than you are offering at this time. I would be open to negotiating a lower starting salary but would hope that we can revisit the subject in a few months."
Answer Example
"I would be taking a salary cut with this position but I'd also be saving on my commute time. Time given back to me is more important than a few dollars an hour."

Question 5 of 30
Where do you see your career one year from now?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
This is a short variation of the typical interview question, 'Where do you see yourself in five years?' Instead, the interviewer may ask more directly, 'Where do you see yourself in the next year?'.

Interviewing, hiring, and onboarding is an expensive and time-consuming endeavor for any company. The interviewer wants to be assured that, if hired, you will see this as a longer-term fit. Discuss your career plans, goals, and how those fit with what this company is offering. Describe your passion for this opportunity, and what you like about the company you are applying for.

Answer Example
"I am thrilled to be interviewing here for your Cardiovascular Technologist opportunity. I believe with the talents and skill set I bring to your team, we will solve some very challenging problems. This is an opportunity I have been seeking for some time now so I plan to stay for the long term should I be lucky enough to be hired."
Answer Example
"A year from now I'm hoping to be growing and becoming a stronger and more knowledgeable​ tech in your clinic."

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
