No matter how difficult, unfair or terrible your previous boss was, use this question as an opportunity to share what you learned from them and what you learned from your previous role.
"My boss taught me the importance of attention to detail. He was particular about every little detail, from preparing for client appointments to completing SOAP notes. I learned how to fine tune my skills and identify the slightest details that could make all the difference in a life or death situation."
"Coming out of school, I'll talk a bit about my preceptor during my clinical experience. I was able to learn really well under him because I was given the ability to learn with a hands on type of experience while being coached from the side. While reading procedures and textbooks is helpful to get a good knowledge base, I am the type of person that needs hand on experience to really learn what I am doing."
"I have worked under my current manager for eight years now and we have a great working relationship. She is very hands off and trusts us all to do our jobs with skill and compassion. She keeps an open door policy and I don't ever hesitate to run issues or concerns by her. She provides feedback to me on a regular basis and I appreciate that greatly."
