    Again, such a question calls for us to be superficial. The "good answer" provided can not equate being classified as one's "worst failure." Why would an employer as such an impacting question and be satisfied with a put together incident or possible lie? How does this serve anyone? This question is unnecessary. Again, it feels like an ego game of fill out the applicant and let me see if I feel superior with him / her. This question should not be void of a real answer if one exists. More over, if the hiring person is not truly interested in honesty and truth why search for content when you're looking for superficiality? Appeasement?

    In my opinion, this is an unprofessional and unfair question. Unprofessional, because it's inappropriate and out of order. Again, this question feels like an ulterior motive, set up. Unfair, because unless the asking person reveals, honestly, what that previous boss stated to him / her about the applicant during the reference call, you become automatically uncomfortable with the person asking...what is their goal / purpose. You may immediately think the person asking the question is not trustworthy and your antenna goes up immediately.

    Some answers that employers seem to want call for people to really set themselves up. It's unfortunate that so many hiring employees employed by these same companies, have so much of their ego's in the game. Why does this question have to be asked at all? It has been my experience that companies who ask such arrogant, superior inclined questions, often have the longest list of job duties and the least pay scale. It's time to really get real and be real. It's time to STOP the copy cat phrases such as, "at the end of the day" and feigned winning words such as "passionate" that are pure ear blowers! You don't know who will zoom up sales or take a company in a desired direction. Time to come off the "high horse's" and work in honesty and integrity. Another thing, Women must Stop being so cliquey and gossipy about one another. Too many evil tables being turned. If you're threatened by another woman, based on your perception, examine yourself. Don't rally the kiss ups who people please with you because of their own insecurities and inferiorities, and don't pull others into your jealous mode that you hide so well when you're talking negative about someone who causes you to feel insecure about yourself. Women really go too far! Quite frankly, it's tiring working with people who go to such lengths to feel important. I won't say be yourself because that envious person could really be you, daily...and who needs that? Nobody! Plus, you're tearing yourself down as quiet as it's kept...injustice like evil only lasts for a while. then it's back on you...in various, if not every area of your life. Finally, hiring employees, should point out to applicants what they like and observe character through real conversation that focuses on company vision and employee opportunities, if there's room for growth, and the benefits of growing with that company. Otherwise, too many people get stuck in "ball and chain" jobs. Time to remove the plastics. It's time out for the pompous Mr. pumpkin" mindsets. There's no big I or little u in GOD.

    The bad answers are bad, but I don't think the good answers are all that good. I've been finding that being long winded and wordy is a bad thing. Very bad.

    Some of these tips seem to be a little over the top, but I suppose if that lands you the job, it'd be worth it. I wonder how many of the interviewers look for answers like the "good answers" provided just to see if the candidate has done some sort of preparation. It'd be interesting to hear an interviewer's take on these types of answers - for example, whether they're the new cliche or not. Thanks for the info!
