So here 10 most common HR Interview Question

1.  Tell me a little about yourself.

This is a most frequently asked and a popular question

Tips To Remember:

  • Talk about the work or project that resembles the requirement of the position
  • Try to cover your accomplishment in your answer
  • Mention what led you to this point in your career and why the job is the perfect match for you

Sample Answer

As a technical project manager, I have more than six years of experience at top Wall Street Companies.  In a recent company, I led the development of an award-winning new trading platform.  I am a person that survives in a fast-paced environment. At the moment, I am looking for a chance to apply my technical expertise and my creative problem-solving skills at an innovative software company like this one.

2.  Why do you want to work for this company?

This is a popular interview question

Tips To Remenber:

  • Conduct thorough research of the company and company’s top executive before facing interview
  • Learn about the company’s vision and how you can contribute to it
  • Demonstrate your belief in the company’s product or service
  • Mention why you rely on XYZ company for your growth and why it is the best place to utilize your skill and experience for the benefit of the company

Sample Answer

Your company made its fortune in making great products that help people do X. But on top of that, it is the kind of place where I can fit in and excel, so I was thrilled to see you have this opening.  Your company believes in providing superior service, and I share the same value. It enables me to not only fit into your organization but complement the team as well.

3. What are your strengths and weaknesses?

Tips To Remenber:

  • Focus mostly on strengths
  • Show the interviewer how you are putting effort to overcome the weakness
  • Mention about your real weakness but do mention about how you are going to fix it
  • Make sure your strength and weakness don’t contradict each other

Sample Answer #1

I have several strengths namely – I am patient, committed, honest and self-motivated. I am the biggest dreamer I have ever come across! I forgive easily and hate to keep grudges in my heart. My greatest weakness is that I don’t like getting interrupted when I am seriously into something. Another one of my weaknesses is that I trust people very easily. As I already said, I am a very patient person, so I am actively working on this lacuna.

Sample Answer #2

I’m a highly motivated person. I don’t stop until I get things done. I value other people’s time and the company’s resources. I work to become an asset, not a liability.

People say I sometimes act too much as a perfectionist. To counter this, I attended seminars that teach me how to manage myself well

4. Why should we hire you?

Tips To Remenber:

  • Emphasize on your uniqueness but keep it concise
  • Highlight your strength, skills, and accomplishments
  • Give an example that describes you as a quick learner

What not to say

  • Try to avoid saying- I need a job, money, or this place is close to where I live
  • Focus on what can you do for the company rather than what they can do for you
  • NEVER DO THIS– comparing your skills to others. The natural instinct to this question is we usually start comparing our skills to others when this question is put through.

Sample Answer #1

Sir/mam, I have great communication skills, desired experience and the requisite skill set for this job role. If I get a chance to showcase my abilities, I will leave no stone unturned with my commitment to hard work and dedication.

Sample Answer #2

As I have said earlier, my years of experience in this field is something that can truly contribute to this company’s success. My sense of dedication in every task that I handle is definitely a big plus. I believe my skills and work attitude measures up to your company standards

5.  What are your salary expectations?

This is an important question of HR Interview Question

Sample Answer #1

Sir/Ma’am, I am sure your company is already paying a specific package to someone in a similar position. Hence, I would like to know your budget, if you do not mind. Accordingly, I can put forth my expectations.

Sample Answer #2

As of now, I haven’t thought much about it. I’m more focused on learning the requirements for this position that I am applying for.

6. What motivates you?

Tips To Remenber:

  • Excitement for new challenges
  • Quest for personal development
  • Sometimes, the best solution is, to be honest- you can say money is your motivational factor, but it should be your last option

Sample Answer #1

I love public speaking. Preparing a presentation and talking about it in front of an audience, and then getting back to them with answers in the question and answer round, motivates me! The whole experience is so thrilling. As a Sales Rep, I think building a connection with my audience is useful, inspiring and exciting.

Sample Answer #2

Responsibility towards work motivates me the most, and my aim within any company is to move up to greater levels of responsibility to achieve each goal with better responsibilities.

7. What is the difference between hard work and smart work?

Sample Answer #1

Hard work is delivering work on time with more effort and smart work is delivering work on time, with lesser effort. I feel that is the basic difference. Most of the times, in the corporate world, I feel a combination of both is needed to attain excellence.

Sample Answer #2

A smart worker is one who sets goals and is constantly working towards his/her goals. S/he also understand the importance of unwinding and keeping a healthy mind. A hard worker also works towards his/her goals just like a smart worker but s/he might lack the traits of analytical thinking, problem solving or delegation. I am a worker focused on results, and I do not hesitate to ask for help to get my work done. I have been described as a “smart worker” by the upper management as I have been successful in leading my team to finish projects before time. In addition to this, physical health is a personal goal. Therefore I spend an hour in the gym daily trying to work hard enough, to stay fit and sharp.

8. How do you feel about working weekends and night shifts?

Sample Answer #1

I understand that being asked to work for an extended number of hours comes with a good reason in the first place, so I’m ok with it. It an extra effort means something for the company. I’ll be happy to do it.

Sample Answer #2

I am a fresher and I hardly have any exposure of the corporate world. Back in college, weekends were no different from weekdays for us. The assignments, tasks and projects had to be submitted within deadlines, and to do so, we would study during the weekdays. As far as night shifts are concerned, I would like to say that I am a nocturnal person and I like to do my studies generally at night. I have no issues working during weekends and at night, provided I get enough compensatory offs to relax and wind down

9. Explain the difference between group and team. Are you a team player?

Sample Answer #1

Yes, I am. Though I am currently in an IC (individual contributor) role, I like working with others as personally, I am social and outgoing. I like to nurture and build team spirit. At least once a month we go for team lunch or host team parties and generally, I am in charge of the fiancés from the pool fund. In case there is no budget left in some month, I ensure a potluck lunch. Being a senior in the team, I keep my eyes and ears open to understand the needs of all the others, especially my juniors and freshers. We help each other focus on what really matters, instead of getting bogged down with irrelevant pressure. My strong communication skills help me coordinate between different team members and resolve further issues.

Sample Answer #2

In Group there is no team leader, as there is a leader in team. In team only the leader guides and motivates the co-workers, while in group we all have to co-operate each other.

10. Where do you see yourself 3 years from now? or Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

This is an important question of HR Interview Question

Sample Answer #1

I see myself working for a reputed organization, at a strategic position with budgeting power, good remuneration, and minimal interference.

Sample Answer #2

My current goal is to find a career spot that ensures continued growth alongside new challenges daily. 3 years from now, I see myself as an experienced and reliable senior in the team and 5 years from now, I assume that I will be ready to take up managerial responsibilities like product strategy. I want to have a stable career in a single organization and hope I will get the same wherever I start.
