Here’s the FULL LIST of PART-TIME JOB INTERVIEW QUESTIONS:

Q1. Tell me about yourself.

SUGGESTED ANSWER:

“Thank you for giving me the chance to be interviewed for this part-time position. I would describe myself as self-motivated, enthusiastic, always positive, and someone who is not afraid to get stuck in and take on varied and challenging tasks that are outside of my comfort zone. Over the years, I have built lots of transferrable skills, including being able to work diligently with anyone and any team; being adaptable and flexible; taking responsibility for my learning and development, and being relied upon to complete a task properly. Outside of work I keep myself fit and active. I am a family person who wants to be a good role model for my children, and I am always looking for new challenges. If you hire me in this part-time position, I will always be upbeat, I will be flexible where possible to work around your business, and I will represent the company positively! “

Q2. Why do you want to work part-time?

SUGGESTED ANSWER

“I want to work part-time for two reasons. The first reason is part-time work fits in with my personal life. I applied for this job because I am confident, I can commit to these hours but I am also open to extending these later on if you need me to work more, and it fits in with your plans. I also want to work part-time because I have heard good things about your company, and I genuinely want to work here. Starting out part-time is a great way for me to experience your company and to work in a positive environment, whilst still maintaining a positive work-life balance which means I will be fully committed and energized when I am at work.”

How to Answer Part-Time Job Interview Questions – Your Questions Answered!


How do you answer a part-time job interview question?

No less preparation should be done for a part-time job interview. One of the key differences compared to a full-time job interview is that the hiring manager will be looking to see how flexible your working hours are. So be sure to always project a positive attitude towards flexible working times and discuss your flexibility for shifts, days, and the hours you are available to work.

How do you answer “why do you want to work part-time?”

This interview question is almost guaranteed to be asked during your interview. To answer it, you need to demonstrate that the part-time work advertised meets your availability. Be sure to also demonstrate that you are flexible with your work hours to suit the needs of the company where possible. It is also a good idea to show the employer that you would be interested in additional hours if the opportunity were to arise. This shows commitment to the company and that you are willing to help the business when it needs it. Finally, you should show a passion for working for that particular company and role. Carry out research prior to your interview by looking at the company’s website, social media channels, and LinkedIn. This will give you some great talking points in your answer that will impress the interviewer.

What should I bring to a part-time job interview?

When attending a part-time interview, you should bring the following items:

  • A copy of the job description;
  • Your resume/CV;
  • A pen and paper/notebook;
  • List of your references;
  • Mints or breath freshener;
  • A professional bag or folder to carry your items.

PART-TIME JOB INTERVIEW TIPS! HOW TO PASS YOUR PART-TIME JOB INTERVIEW.

TIP #1 – Prepare answers for the most common part-time interview questions prior to attending your interview. Some of these questions include:

  1. Why do you want to work part-time?
  2. What do you think are the most important qualities needed to work part-time?
  3. What’s your availability?
  4. Describe a situation when had to be flexible at work?

TIP #2 – Do not treat a part-time job interview any less seriously than a full-time job interview! There is often a misconception that part-time interviews are easy which is simply not the case! In fact, there can often be a lot more competition for the role, so you cannot become complacent! 

TIP #3 – Demonstrate your flexibility for shift work, days, and hours. For a part-time role, the interviewer wants to know that part-time work suits you and is genuinely what you are looking for. If they feel you are looking for full-time work and that isn’t available, they will suspect you will leave their company after a short period of time which is not necessarily in their best interest.

TIP #4 – Make sure you have researched the company thoroughly before your interview and the job description. This shows that you care about the role, understand the requirements needed, and gives you plenty of talking points throughout your interview! Take a look at the company’s social media channels – have they posted anything of interest recently that you can mention in your interview that stood out to you? This is guaranteed to impress the interviewer!

Tip #5 – Make sure you have a good previous work example in mind where you have demonstrated flexibility at work. This is important as when companies hire for part-time roles, it is likely they will need employees who can cover other staff at short notice. Show the interviewer that you are willing to do this and that you have done so in a previous role.
