Tricky HR Interview Questions - Common for All: Q. 56 – 60

Set of Five Questions

Q. 56: What was the toughest part of your last job?

This question is more difficult to redefine into something positive. Your interviewer will assume that whatever you found toughest may give you a problem in your new position.

Best Answer can be - State that there was nothing in your prior position that you found overly difficult, and let your answer go at that. If pressed to expand your answer, you could describe the aspects of the position you enjoyed more than others, making sure that you express maximum enjoyment for those tasks most important to the open position, and you enjoyed least those tasks that are unimportant to the position at hand.

Q. 57: How do you define success…and how do you measure up to your own definition?

Seems like an obvious enough question. Yet many executives, unprepared for it, fumble over it.

Best Answer can be - Give a well-accepted definition of success that leads right into your own stellar collection of achievements. Example: "The best definition I've come across is that success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal."

"As to how I would measure up to that definition, I would consider myself both successful and fortunate…"(Then summarize your career goals and how your achievements have indeed represented a progressive path toward realization of your goals.)

Q. 58: If you win 1 Crore Rupee lottery, would you still work?

Your totally honest response might be, "Hell, no, are you serious?" That might be so, but any answer, which shows you as running away from work, if given the chance could make you seem lazy. On the other hand, if you answer, "Oh, I'd want to keep doing exactly what I am doing, only doing it for your firm," you could easily inspire your interviewer to silently say to himself, "Yeah, sure. Give me a break."

Best Answer can be - This type of question is aimed at getting at your bedrock attitude about work and how you feel about what you do. Your best answer will focus on your positive feelings.

Example: I think I would still hold my basic belief that achievement and purposeful work are essential to a happy, productive life. After all, if money alone bought happiness, then all rich people would be all happy, and that's not true.

"I love the work I do, and I think I'd always want to be involved in my career in some fashion. Winning the lottery would make it more fun because it would mean having more flexibility, more options...who knows?"

"Of course, since I can't count on winning, I'd just as soon create my own destiny by sticking with what's worked for me, meaning good old reliable hard work and a desire to achieve. I think those qualities have built many more fortunes that all the lotteries put together."

Q. 59: Looking back on your last position, have you done your best work?

It is a tricky question. Answer "absolutely" and it can seem like your best work is behind you. Answer, "no, my best work is ahead of me," and it can seem as if you didn't give it your all.

Best Answer can be - To cover both possible paths this question can take, your answer should state that you always try to do your best, and the best of your career is right now. Like an athlete at the top of his game, you are just hitting your career stride thanks to several factors. Then, recap those factors, highlighting your strongest qualifications.

Q. 60: Tell me something negative you've heard about our company…

This is a common fishing expedition to see what the industry people may be saying about the company. But it's also a trap because as an outsider, you never want to be the bearer of unflattering news or gossip about the firm. It can only hurt your chances and sidetrack the interviewer from getting sold on you.

Best Answer can be - Just remember the rule - never be negative - and you'll handle this one just fine.
