100 Interview Questions You Should Be Ready to Answer

100 Interview Questions You Should Be Ready to Answer

Thad Peterson | Monster Staff Writer

While there are as many different possible interview questions as there are interviewers, it always helps to be ready for anything. So we’ve prepared a list of 100 potential interview questions. Will you face them all? We pray no interviewer would be that cruel. Will you face a few? Probably. Will you be well-served by being ready even if you’re not asked these exact questions? Absolutely.

Questions 1 through 10:

  • * Tell me about yourself.
  • * What are your strengths?
  • * What are your weaknesses?
  • * Who was your favorite manager and why?
  • * What kind of personality do you work best with and why?
  • * Why do you want this job?
  • * Where would you like to be in your career five years from now?
  • * Tell me about your proudest achievement.
  • * If you were at a business lunch and you ordered a rare steak and they brought it to you well done, what would you do?
  • * If I were to give you this salary you requested but let you write your job description for the next year, what would it say?

    Often times, its the questions YOU ask, not what ones are asked to you. The most important one is "What would be your first priorities for me in this role within the first 6 months (or 90 days).

    There are several questions in this list that I have been asked in interviews. For instance, "Where do you see yourself in five years?" "Where would you like to be in five years?" would be a better question. As far as I know, I have no talents as reading futures and neither does anyone else.

    there are no "answers" and memorizing canned responses is very dangerous. These questions are thought provoking and should help you think about your specific experiences and allow you to feel the answers so when you are sitting live with a person you are comfortable responding. As a hiring manager anyone who tried too hard on any of these questions would come across as fake -

    It seems the main theme running through the responses is "What is the right answer?" Most of these questions do not have a right or wrong answer. Furthermore, the right answer for one person may the wrong answer for another person. What these questions are aimed at is to give an insight into the kind of questions that can be thrown at you in an interview. The important thing is to be able to read the people asking the questions and give them the type of answer they are looking for - in other words become test wise. Just make sure the type of answer you give them also reflects who you are. You can phrase your honest answer about who you are and what you feel is right or wrong in so many different ways that you can actually talk yourself into any job that's out there. Unfortunately most of us are too honest to do that. The important thing is answer the questions honestly - if you don't like the question, let them know. If you don't think the question is appropriate for you, then tell them that too. The silly questions can be popped in at you to throw you off - "Why do tennis balls have fuzz on them?" - puu leeze - and what might this have to do with any job except manufacturing tennis balls. But if you let it throw you and can't pop off an answer just as inane what does this say about you? Prospective employers don't want someone who is so desperate for a job that they don't have a sense of humor anymore. They want an employee is going to have a fully rounded life with interests for more than success. If you are all about working, then you stand the strong possibility of burn out very quickly. Employers don't want to have to replace employees due to burn out. They seem to get really upset about that (I have first hand experience on that one).

    I attended a state required Workforce Commission orientation today and to my surprise one of their hand outs were the exact same questions titled as "behavior based" interview questions....however, no repsonses were noted. Good prework as I plan to begin interviewing after 18 years of continuous employment. Good luck everyone !

    The questions are thought-provoking, but at the risk of sounding bitter, I served on an interview committee once, and despite my reasons for wanting to hire the lady with more life experience , common sense and good answers to some of the more ridiculous questions, I was outvoted by the three men on the committee. The cute lttle blonde who giggled alot got the job. Need I say more? I agree with JAAMSLT on the crapshoot!
