How would your former employer describe you?
Think about positive traits others use to describe you. Focus on the characteristics that are most valued in the workplace. Follow up by giving an example that shows why your coworkers think you have these traits or an experience that shows off these characteristics. Prepare at least one example. It's always helpful to be thinking about how others might perceive you, or how your actions affect others. It may be helpful to know when answering other interview questions, like talking about your strengths.
Answer examples
"My coworkers say I'm easy to work with because I try to have a good attitude, even when I have a heavy workload."
