30 Questions and Answers by Heather Douglass

Updated August 22nd, 2018 | Heather has over 20 years experience recruiting and hiring candidates,
specifically in the health care industry.
Question 1 of 30
How did you find this job?
Click To View Answer
How to Answer
The interviewer will typically ask this question early in an interview to see which recruiting method or platform being used is the most effective. When the employer understands what is working vs. what isn't, they can adjust and change to use the most effective method for their recruiting. If you found out about the job from a friend that already works in the facility, and you know they are a good worker, feel free to name drop. Getting a job isn't all about qualifications but who you know.

Tell me about a recent achievement.

How to Answer
Achievements aren't always something you can hang on the wall of your office. Sometimes an achievement is completing a difficult task and overcoming the obstacles that come up along the way. You have a couple ways you can answer the interviewer's question: Discuss an example of when you overcame obstacles to achieve something great, or share an accomplishment or award you received and talk about what was challenging about it. Either way, you are showing your determination and focus to reach your goal. Think of a situation that highlights your strengths and qualities that will be helpful for the job you're interviewing for.
Question 3 of 30
Do you have any questions for us?

How to Answer
Now is your opportunity to turn the tables on the interviewer. Come prepared for this question by bringing in a list of 3 to 5 questions. Bringing a list will keep you from getting sidetracked and jotting their answers down will show your eagerness and attention to detail.

Question 4 of 30
Why are you looking for a new job?
Click To View Answer
How to Answer
The interviewer wants to be sure that they will be able to meet your needs and not use this position as a stepping stone to leave the job in a few months. Be honest, but be careful not to overshare. It is best if you can focus primarily on your future wish list vs. dwelling on what is going wrong in your current position.

Question 5 of 30
How would you describe your work ethic?
Click To View Answer
How to Answer
When the interviewer asks about your work ethic they are looking for specific examples or keywords they can relate to. When you read the company job posting or job description do they refer to particular company ethics? Talk about their values and how those align well with your personal work values.

Question 6 of 30
Tell us about a time you took on additional duties.
Click To View Answer
How to Answer
This question is to gauge if you could take on additional responsibilities if need be. If your co-worker is going on maternity leave for 7 weeks would you be able to take on her patient workload? If a manager was needed on the night shift could you take on the role? Share the leadership qualities with the interviewer that you have and assure them that you could step up to the plate if needed.

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 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 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.
