interview questions  Interview questions about your work history

 

Take the time to research the company. That way you'll be ready with knowledgeable answers for the questions that specifically relate to the company you are interviewing with.

 

What have you done in the past?

Make sure you can talk well about your prior work history in detail and accurately.

If you don't have a resume, make sure what you tell the interviewer matches what you filled out on your job application.
 

What were your expectations for your previous job and to what extent were they met?

Discuss what you expected when you took the job and give examples of how the position worked out for you. If the job wasn't exactly what you expected, it's fine to mention that, but don't be negative about it.
 

What was your compensation at your last job?

Be truthful. They will check.

 

What were your responsibilities at your last job?

Be honest. They will check.

 

Who was your best boss?

Tell them you have learned something from all your bosses.

 

How did you handle a challenge?

Include specific examples of how you handled a particular difficult situation. Discuss how you researched the issue and contributed to finding a solution.

 

Have you worked with someone you didn't like? If so, how did you handle it?
Tell them if you have worked with someone you didn't  like as a person. But how you focused on their skills and things you did appreciate, so your attitude towards them changed.

 

What was most rewarding and least rewarding about your last job?

Focus on the most rewarding. Don't dwell on what you hated.

 

What was your greatest accomplishment?

Work out what on your last job will be beneficial to the company you are interviewing with.

 

Why are you leaving your job?

Don't be negative. Say you are looking for more challenges or that this job intrigued you.

 

Why were you fired?

Don't be negative. Say the job wasn't a right fit for you or that you had taken the wrong job in the first place. Turn the question around by pointing out your best skills.
