Job Interview Question & Answer: What Sorts of People Do You Enjoy Working With?

How to Answer the Question:
A good answer to this question typically involves your ability to work well with others while improving as a person and benefitting the company at the same time. Discuss times you helped calm an angry customer or worked as part of a team to accomplish a particular company goal. Discuss specific instances where you assisted your employer with projects, events, or missions that ended successfully and earned the company good press and/or great profits.

Do not talk about the type of people you can’t stand to work with in a job interview. Do not discuss race, class, religion, gender, or other diversity issues best left out of the hiring process. Do not wax philosophic about difficult to work with co-workers. Talk about people in terms of company worth and not personal value: team assets and not friends.
