Answer: The question may seem pretty simple but there is a lot of meaning behind it. What your boss is trying to figure out is what motivates you. They need to know that when things get rough, you can always find a reason to keep working hard and doing your best. That means it’s important to choose an answer that’s universal and constant. You may think kids are a good answer but consider this. If you have a 15-year-old, your motivation is only living at home for another three years before your motivation goes off to college, moves out, or otherwise leaves. Your boss may not think you’re motivated after that happens.

Answer: Any day of the week that isn’t Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Employers want to hear you say that you enjoy work. This question is commonly asked to people applying to places like Amazon where the culture is that of a workaholic. You want to answer Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday and tell them it’s because you like being busy. The weekend is coming anyway, there’s no need to glorify it in your job interview.

Answer: Many of these questions are designed to look simple but are really complicated. This is exactly the opposite. This sounds complex but it’s actually extremely easy so don’t over think it! You may be trying to figure out how many windows are in Seattle and give a ballpark figure for all of them in the millions of dollars range. Seriously, just say tell them that you’d do it for $15-$20 per window and you’re done.

Answer: Your boss is essentially asking you if you’re a good worker. People who get promoted regularly are those who are perceived to be better workers than those who were deemed not worthy for promotion. The key here is to emphasize that you were working hard to help in any way you could. It was through loyalty to the company that you worked that long without a promotion.

Concentrate your answer on areas that are relevant to the position and be specific. Don't say, "I liked the atmosphere." Instead, try saying "I enjoyed the camaraderie of being part of a team." When discussing least-liked aspects of your present or previous job, try to mention an area of responsibility that's far removed from the functions of the job you're seeking. But be sure your answer indicates that you either performed the assignment well or that you learned something useful. This shows that you stick with tasks, even ones that don't particularly interest you.

Realize that most interviewers don't expect you to be perfect or reveal your true weaknesses. Turn this question around and present a personal weakness as a professional strength. Let's assume that you're detail-oriented, a workaholic and that you neglect friends and family when working on important projects. You can turn these weaknesses around by saying that you're very meticulous and remain involved in projects until you've ironed out all the problems, even if it means working after hours or on the weekend.

This can be tricky to answer. The wrong answers are something like “I reported the deadbeat to my supervisor” or “I vented out the lazy good-for-nothing in front of the rest of the team to force him to get with it.” A better response is that you got your work completed and offered your help either to the supervisor to get the task finished for the overall team’s benefit. Bad-mouthing should never be part of the interview!

This is often the last question you will be asked and the answer most definitely is ‘yes.’ You need to know more. Under no circumstances make the mistake of not seeming inquisitive. Hopefully you’ve engaged in give and take during the interview, and made it more conversational. But find something to ask. If it has not already been covered you want to know why the position is available; how it gels with other positions; what are the opportunities for growth; where the company is heading; what’s the ultimate purpose?

If your role is going to be one where you will handle a lot of projects by yourself you could stress that you have experience working alone and enjoy it—but also appreciate that there are times when creative brainstorming with a group is vital, and that you are adept in those circumstances. On the other hand, if it’s a team job you should emphasize your strengths working with others but also indicate that you like to have personal responsibility for some aspects of a project.

Yes, some interviewers like these types of questions! So, be prepared. The type of animal or tree you select should reflect qualities that will be appreciated in the workplace. So you probably don’t want to be a rat or a weeping willow. Perhaps an elephant (intelligent, strong, and loyal) or an oak (sturdy, dependable). You choose what works for you. Of course, you can always turn the tables and ask the interviewer what she chose when she was asked that question.

A: I used to work for a boss who managed four offices making his time ultra-limited... he eventually called me one day, and begged me to review their work "unofficially." But there had been a long history in my office of people who would "act like the boss," sans any official title, only to be "beheaded" a few months later for overstepping their bounds.

A: Yes, I did very well at my internship, and I had originally assumed that I would come on staff once I graduated from college. However, BB&L drastically cut back the number of new hires they were planning. As fate would have it, they will not be hiring any of the interns they had last summer.

A: I suppose that asking for name-brand vodka at the Christmas party, instead of the generic swill that they normally serve, doesn't count, right? No, really honestly, I'm delighted to report that I never made a mistake that cost my company money.

However, if the person taking credit for my ideas was my boss, I would tread cautiously. To some extent, I believe that my job is to make my superiors shine. If I were being rewarded for my ideas with raises and promotions, I would be happy.
