General Questions

Some sample behavioral general interview questions have been provided here. These questions commonly asked during most interviews. Answers or guidelines are provided to help the candidates to prepare for such general questions and have well structured answers.

  1. Illustrate your strong points and weak points?

    Ans: Unfolding your strong points is comparably effortless as to describing your limitations. Just make sure that the qualities you are describing are corresponding to the post you have applied for. Be set to counter a follow-up query on the strengths you describe. You must be competent to intricate how the strengths are useful in making your job superior.

    When you talk about the weaknesses, make sure that you do not bring out any negatives. It should demonstrate how you have controlled and changed a weakness into a constructive outcome. For example you can say that you were impatient at a point of time but experience has taught you how vital patience is when it comes to professional times.

    The key is, don't show off your strengths and talk about your weaknesses in a way that it reveals that you have conquered it.

  2. What remuneration are you expecting?

    Ans: You need to research and understand the industry standards, about the remuneration this position usually gets. Also charge yourself for the job depending on your expertise and how you have fared in the interview. This will set you up to get the salary you justify.

    It is best to be tolerant and let the interviewer bring up the talk of compensation. Quote a number as per your research, if feasible in a range and wait for the offer.

    If you are not happy with it, you can make use of delay tactics in giving approval and the company may give better offer. If you are not too excited about the job or have other better offers in hand, you can just reject the offer. Sometimes rejecting can lead to a better offer.

  3. Do you seize initiative to be trained at something new, or you wait till you are told to do so?

    Ans: The interviewer expects that the interviewee is a self-learner as it would save time of the company. So here is the answer you can give during the interview: "I believe that everyone is a student for life. We learn a little each and every day. I think I am a self starter as far as learning new stuff is concerned. It only facilitates me in doing better at my work. I keep on trying novel ways to get things completed in a better way and I do that by doing my own study and find out newer things about the job at hand."

  4. If an associate is snubbed with you, not because of your slipup, but because you are performing better than him even though he is putting in the same hours as you, how will you calm him down?

    Ans: Sample answer: "In such state of affairs it is essential to show compassion. Every individual is different from the other and one needs to appreciate the others point of view; and the most important thing is, what he is disturbed about is your performance and not upset with you. It proves that even he wishes to perform well. You can chat to him and verify what it is, that he is doing wrongly. Explain him why you are more successful when both are putting in the same hours. This will cool him down and he will be more alert. It will also help building faith between the two of you and he will be eager to help you out in future, if the need be."

    Your answer should emphasize that you are not fazed with such situation and have the tenacity to handle such situations with ease. It should show that you take responsibility in helping colleagues with their issues and don't undermine someone who is not at-par with your performance.

  5. Was there a time that you managed to communicate to a difficult person effectively, when others in your team could not manage?

    Ans: Once an old manager left the job and we had to work under a new one. We had all developed a great relationship with the old manager. The new manager had a straight approach towards getting things done. All the team members were at a loss about communicating with him. In an interaction I found that he too had a cool personality and only his way of working was poles apart from the previous manager. Once I understood this, interacting with him was easy, the only thing was one had to be to the point with him. I even talked about it with my team members and everything was smooth there on. I realized that it was not a difficult personality that we were facing, but a difficult situation.

Given above are sample general interview questions to assess the aspiring candidates. The answers are instructions that job seekers can use to prepare themselves for interview.
