Here’s the FULL LIST of SCENARIO-BASED INTERVIEW QUESTIONS:

Q1. What would you do if your manager asked you to perform a task you’d never done before?

SUGGESTED ANSWER:

“I am naturally a self-motivated person who enjoys challenging situations, so I would go away and find out how to complete the task to a high standard. I would see this as an opportunity to learn something new, and there are lots of ways I could find out how to perform the task within the dedicated timeframe. I could tap into the knowledge of more experienced people within the organization, and I could also read manuals or gain access to online information. Either way, I would make sure the task was completed on time, and also to the necessary standards.”

Q2. If you made a mistake at work that no one else noticed, what would you do?

SUGGESTED ANSWER

“I would, first of all, inform my manager or supervisor about the mistake before taking immediate steps to put the situation right. It’s important to be honest when you make a mistake as there is usually an opportunity for you, the team and the organization to improve by looking at ways to prevent the situation from happening again. I would want to make sure I took the necessary steps to prevent the same mistake from happening again, and this could be achieved through either additional training or implementing a double-check system when tasks are completed.”

What would you do if you witnessed two team members arguing?

Most people would ignore this this type of situation and they would simply wait for their manager or supervisor to take the appropriate action necessary. However, if you are a professional team worker who does not want to see the organization suffer due to this type of scenario, then you would look to take positive action quickly yourself and try to resolve it without involving our manager.

What Are the Most Common Types of Scenario-Based Interview Questions?

3 TIPS FOR ANSWERING SCENARIO-BASED & SITUATIONAL INTERVIEW QUESTIONS

TIP #1 – Scenario-based interview questions appear to be relatively easy to answer upon first inspection. However, you can quite easily end u saying the wrong thing and end up not getting the job as a result!

When answering situational and scenario-based interview questions, always put the needs of the organization above everything else!
