  • That is me there on the right-hand side.

  • I've been helping people for over 20 years now to pass their interviews, and in particular,

  • in this video, we are going to focus on how to answer tough interview questions.

  • And like I say, I'm going to give you suggested answers that you can use during your interview

  • preparation.

  • OK.

  • Straight into it.

  • Question number one of our top five tough interview questions and answers.

  • Tell me about a time when you didn't get on with a work colleague?”

  • So, two important tips before I give you the suggested answer.

  • What not to say: don't say it was their fault and they were the ones who had the problem,

  • not you.

  • Even if that is the case.

  • But instead, what you should say - do say you looked at this as an opportunity to build

  • bridges and resolve the situation with a positive outcome to the benefit of the company.

  • So, they are looking for people who resolve this kind of situation.

  • They take responsibility for it.

  • So here is my suggested answer for the tough interview questionTell me about a time

  • when you didn't get on with a work colleague?”

  • In a previous job, I can remember a member of staff within the office taking a dislike

  • to me.

  • For some reason, he appeared to not involve me during conversations, or when I tried to

  • contribute, he dismissed my views and opinions.

  • Whilst it wasn't a pleasant situation to be in, I knew I had to be the one who resolved

  • it.

  • I started out by trying to speak to him on a one-to-one basis and I would sit with him

  • during coffee and lunch breaks.

  • I would always talk to him positively and ask how he was and what he'd been up to at

  • the weekends.

  • He was continually cold towards me, and so I decided to ask him outright whether there

  • was an issue.

  • As soon as I confronted him on the issue, his attitude changed.

  • Although he didn't say it directly, I felt he knew he hadn't been particularly nice towards

  • me.

  • However, since that day we have got on really well, and our relationship has progressed

  • to the point that we've met up for coffee on a couple occasions outside of work.

  • Now, this has been beneficial to the team because we can now work together more productively

  • on important projects.

  • Whenever a negative situation occurs, I will always try my hardest to turn it into a positive

  • one.”

  • So, that's a really good response and it shows you as the smart, intelligent person.

  • You are being the mature one, and there is a positive outcome to that situation.

  • You've taken responsibility for it, which is good.

  • Question number two of our top five top interview questions.

  • Describe a time when you failed in a work situation?”

  • A really difficult question to answer because there is obviously a temptation to say that

  • you never fail, but the fact is we all do.

  • So, what not to say don't say: You are pretty near perfect and that you've never failed

  • in a work situation!

  • We have all failed at times.

  • Now, what you should say, is explain how you failed, the impact it had on the team and

  • then what you did to put it right.

  • That's the important part.

  • So, here is my suggested answer to the interview question: “Describe a time when you failed

  • in a work situation?”

  • When I initially started out in my previous job, I was given an important task by my manager

  • that had a tight deadline.

  • Because I was keen to impress, I started working hard quickly to get the job done and to the

  • right standard.

  • However, due to my hastiness, I had failed to read one part of the brief correctly, which

  • meant the project wasn’t completed to the right specification.

  • As soon as I realized I had made the mistake, I informed my manager, apologized and looked

  • to put it right.

  • I learnt a lot from that experience, and ever since then, I ensure I adopt a thorough, analytical

  • approach to all tasks I undertake.

  • I don’t make mistakes often, but if I do, I will always react positively, take responsibility

  • and learn from the experience.”

  • So, again, this is showing you as a mature employee and you are taking responsibility

  • when things don't go according to plan, and that is the perfect answer.

  • Next interview question: Who's the worst boss you have ever had?”

  • Really difficult one, and I've heard this asked in many interviews and people don't

  • answer it correctly.

  • Now, before I give you the suggested answer here are two important tips for getting this

  • answer correct.

  • What not to say: don't say you've had lots of bad bosses.

  • Now, this will make the interview panel think it's you who has the problem, but instead

  • what do you say?

  • Well.

  • If you have ever had a negative boss, say you kept your opinions of them to yourself

  • as it's important you respect their decisions and instructions.

  • So, here's my suggested answer for the interview question: “Who's the worst boss you've ever

  • had?”

  • To be truthful, most of my bosses and managers have been brilliant.

  • There has only ever been one boss who I didn’t agree with the way that he did things, but

  • I was still very much respectful towards him, and I kept my views and opinions to myself.

  • The only reason why I felt he wasn’t particularly great as a boss, was that he continually changed

  • his mind about how we should tackle certain projects, and he didn’t appear to be confident

  • in his choices.

  • Having said that, I understood that he must have been under pressure from senior managers,

  • so I always did all I could to help him out and do my own job to the best of my abilities.”

  • So, of course, we've all had a difficult boss that we don't want to work for, but that shows

  • a high level of maturity that you understand why the boss might have been under pressure,

  • so you need to be very careful how you answer that particular question!

  • But hopefully, that suggested response will help you during your preparation.

  • Next interview question of our top five tough interview questions and answers.

  • How do you think your co-workers would describe you, both good and bad?”

  • Again, a really difficult question, but here are two tips on getting this answer correct.

  • What not to say: so, don't say anything bad that is a match for the job description.

  • So, let's say you are being interviewed for a role that requires you to work collectively

  • with other team members to achieve difficult tasks.

  • Don't say that your co-workers would probably say you like to work alone, and you're not

  • particularly good in a team environment!

  • Now what to say instead: do say a number of good things your co-workers would say that

  • are a match for the job description.

  • So, if the role that you're being interviewed for is customer-focused, sayWell they

  • would say that I'm really good with customers.”

  • and “I go above and beyond to help them”, things like that.

  • Also, say one bad thing, and then three good things about yourself!

  • Here's how to answer this interview question: “That’s a difficult question, but I guess

  • if I am really honest they would most probably say the one bad thing about me is that I am

  • sometimes not very good at delegating team tasks when we are all working together on

  • an important project.

  • It’s only because I care so much about the finished project that I try to do a lot of

  • the work myself.

  • Having said that, I am learning to let go and trust my work colleagues as they are just

  • as important as I am, within the team.”

  • In respect of the good things, I believe they would say I am reliable and can be trusted

  • to complete a task professionally.

  • I am a loyal and hardworking person, and an invaluable asset to the team.

  • And finally, I am someone whom they could rely on in their hour of need, or if they

  • ever needed support in a difficult situation.”

  • That's a great response because you are getting one negative, and then three positives!

  • You are loading it with positive words.

  • Next interview question of the tough interview questions tutorial.

  • What's the first thing you would do in this job if you are successful?”

  • Two tips for answering this correctly.

  • What not say: don't say you would sit back and take your time to become accustomed to

  • the role.

  • But instead, what you should say: do say you already have a plan in place of what you intend

  • to do and then break it down into three things.

  • The fact that you will learn the role quickly; you will fit into the team, and then you will

  • make an immediate impact.

  • So, here is my suggested answer to the tough interview question: “What's the first thing

  • you would do in this job if you are successful?”

  • “I would want to hit the ground running, and in order to order to achieve that, I would

  • do three things.

  • Firstly, I would learn the job as quickly as possible and in order to achieve that,

  • I would take comprehensive notes and spend time reading up on the role during the evenings,

  • once I got home from work.

  • Secondly, I would introduce myself to the team and get to know everyone as soon as possible.

  • I feel it’s important that I fit in with the team quickly.

  • Finally, I would want to undertake an important project or task to show you what I am capable

  • doing.

  • Because you would be putting your trust in me, I would be keen to repay that trust by

  • showing you what I am capable of doing within the role, quickly.”

  • That's a great answer again!
