    If you could choose a specific schedule or shift, what would it be?

      Many people work more than one job or have a one parent home which requires them to have a flexible schedule. Others simply prefer to work one shift rather than another. Being upfront with the interviewer about what schedule suits your preference could help prevent conflict later on. It is easier to plan a schedule you can agree on than it is to fix problems that arise due to fear of being rejected. Be honest and direct.

      Heather's Answer

      "I am not married and have no children at this time. So, I am pretty flexible with my schedule. If I had a choice, I would prefer the late shift, as I am a bit of a night owl. However, I am excited about the opportunity to become a part of this team and am willing to work where I'm needed."

      Darby's Answer

      "I really don't have a preferred schedule. I know that, as a new employee, I may be asked to work different shifts, and I am ok with that."

      Darby's Answer

      "I can't think of a shift that would be out of my comfort zone. I have often been the employee who takes the late shift so that those with children or evening/night responsibilities can have that time off. I am interested in becoming an asset to the neuro team and look forward to hearing where you think I will be the best fit."

      "I am pretty flexible with my schedule. If I had a choice, I would prefer the morning shift, as my husband has an 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. job. However, I am excited about the opportunity to become a part of this team and am willing to work where I'm needed."

      Great response; the interviewer will appreciate your flexibility. I assisted with minor grammatical edits.

      "My ideal schedule would be during the day, but I am willing to work when I am needed. I am open and flexible to all shift opportunities."
