Four Interview Questions You Must Get Right

When interviewing, managers will attempt behavioral questions to try and make you reveal your true personality. Often they will be open questions to make you give lengthy answers. The aim is for you to show your personality and experience with the purpose of seeing if you fit in with the companies culture.

Here are four questions that you should always be ready for.

1 – What is the worst job you have had?

The interview is looking to find out what disengages you. They want to know, when you are unhappy at work, do you get annoyed and become unproductive or do you take a proactive approach and try to resolve the situation.

2 – What is the worst manager you have worked for?

The interviewer is trying to gauge your expectations at work. Was the manager you worked for bad because of their management style? It is possible that the company you are interviewing for uses the same style.

3 – Why are you looking to leave your current employer?

The interviewer is looking to see what is pushing you to leave your job. It is very rare that happy employees go on job interviews. The interviewer is looking to see what expectations of an employer you have.

4 – What are your weaknesses?

Everybody hates this question in interviews, but nobody is perfect. The interviewer is looking for you to discuss your areas of improvement. This will show them that you are self-aware and can grow on the job.

What our clients say about us

We usually use recruitment agencies, however for this particular vacancy it seemed more appropriate to try a cheaper recruitment option. In setting up the initial advert it was very easy and quick, and the staff at ThatRecruit were very helpful and efficient in coming back to me and in authorizing the advert. The software to manage the vacancy was easy to use and the ability to mark candidates with a status was helpful. As an improvement it would be useful to be able to select all those marked as rejected and be able to bulk message them with a decline message or have an option to allow the candidates to see their status. Overall it’s been easy to manage this recruitment placement through ThatRecruit and we had an exceptional response to the advertisement with 72 applicants and having to close the advert early.
