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."
