Question 1 of 35

Do you have any volunteer experience?

The interviewer asks this question because some companies count volunteer experience in construction as work experience, which is required for most woodworking jobs. The interviewer also wants to see if you would be a good fit for the team if hired. Many companies volunteer their services to the community, and the interviewer wants to know if you would be on board as an employee. Describe any volunteer experience you have, starting with construction-related and other types of community service.
