Tricky HR Interview Questions - Common for All: Q. 26 – 30

Set of Five Questions

Q. 26: Why aren't you earning more money at this stage of your career?

You don't want to give the impression that money is not important to you, yet you want to explain why your salary may be a little below industry standards.

Best Answer can be - You like to make money, but other factors are even more important.

Example: "Making money is very important to me, and one reason I'm here is because I'm looking to make more. Throughout my career, what's been even more important to me is doing work I really like to do

at the kind of company I like and respect. (Then be prepared to be specific about what your ideal position and company would be like, matching them as closely as possible to the opportunity at hand.

Q. 27: Who has inspired you in your life and why?

The two traps here are unpreparedness and irrelevance. If you grope for an answer, it seems you've never been inspired. If you ramble about your high school basketball coach, you've wasted an opportunity to present qualities of great value to the company.

Best Answer can be - Have a few heroes in mind, from your mental "Board of Directors" - Leaders in your industry, from history or anyone else who has been your mentor.

Be prepared to give examples of how their words, actions or teachings have helped inspire your achievements. As always, prepare an answer, which highlights qualities that would be highly valuable in the position you are seeking.

Q. 29: Tell me about the most boring job you've ever had.

You give a very memorable description of a very boring job. Result? You become associated with this boring job in the interviewer's mind.

Best Answer can be - You have never allowed yourself to grow bored with a job and you can't understand it when others let themselves fall into that rut.

Example: "Perhaps I've been fortunate, but that I've never found myself bored with any job I have ever held. I've always enjoyed hard work. I believe that in every company or department there are exciting challenges and intriguing problems crying out for energetic and enthusiastic solutions. If you're bored, it's probably because you're not challenging yourself to tackle those problems right under your nose."

Q. 30: Have you been absent from work more than a few days in any previous position?

If you've had a problem, you can't lie. You could easily be found out. Yet admitting an attendance problem could raise many flags.

Best Answer can be - If you have had no problem, emphasize your excellent and consistent attendance record throughout your career. Also describe how important you believe such consistent attendance is for a key executive…why it's up to you to set an example of dedication…and why there's just no substitute for being there with your people to keep the operation running smoothly, answer questions and handle problems and crises as they arise.

If you do have a past attendance problem, you want to minimize it, making it clear that it was an exceptional circumstance and that it's cause has been corrected.
