Updated August 17th, 2018

How to Answer
Unfortunately, this is not an uncommon experience in the industry. The interviewer needs to know that you can handle this kind of situations. Your answer could go like this, "If such an incident occurs, I would immediately let my client know that he/she made me feel uncomfortable. I'd gently but firmly remind them that such comments are inappropriate and are not condoned in the establishment. If their misconduct continues, I will not hesitate to discuss the incident with my manager so that we can decide on the fitting course of action."

How to Answer
"I am willing to work whatever hours you need me. Can you tell me a little more about what to expect from the schedule?" Massage therapists work by appointment in most cases, so your schedule and work hours may vary considerably. Before you agree to any sort of schedule, be sure to know your availability! Now is a great time to ask about the schedule. You also want to express that you are willing to work the hours required and that you can be flexible in urgent situations.
Question 3 of 35
Tell me about an uncomfortable situation with a co-worker or client. How did you handle it?

How to Answer
When answering this type of question, be careful that you do not badmouth anyone involved, as it will only reflect poorly on you. Instead, try to concentrate on the positive aspects, the lesson you may have learned, or how the issue was solved.
Question 4 of 35
What techniques are you proficient in?

How to Answer
You are being given the opportunity to show off your skills and experience. Remember, it's not wise to exaggerate as this will only reflect poorly on you if you fail to deliver in the future. Are you good at Swedish massage? Perhaps you're familiar with Shiatsu or more unique styles of massage therapy. Now's the time to list down the skills that will help you land the job.
Question 5 of 35
How do you respond to conflict in the workplace? Give me an example.
Click To View Answer
How to Answer
Conflict and disagreement is inevitable in a workplace, more so if employees are highly engaged, committed, and fired up. Maybe you've disagreed with a coworker on their decision. Or it could even be as simple as someone having a bad day at the office. Explain the situation and how it was resolved to the interviewer.

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.
