1. What do you consider your most significant weaknesses?
I have never enjoyed this question as it basically forces you to tell the interviewer something negative about yourself. Don't feel the need to reveal deep character flaws, but tell the interviewer you have a few faults that you are working to improve and then give a few examples. A good way to turn this question around and turn a weakness into a strength is the best way to answer this question. Don't actually tell the interviewer that you have a problem; though we all have something wrong with us, but don't come right out and say it as it will sound like a weakness and a reason not to hire you.
1. "I pay close attention to details which does result in a higher quality of work and saves additional time down the road, though it does take more time up front and sometimes overtime."
2. "I am a person who likes to meet deadlines and deliver what I promise and sometimes I can get a little frustrated with my fellow co-workers if I'm waiting on them in the last hour before something is due."

2. What do you consider your most significant strengths?
This is another top 10 question that you can surely expect to hear in any interview. Prepare yourself and make sure you can rattle off three to five of your strengths as it relates to your past or present job, work experience, and the requirements for the job for which you are interviewing. Though it's something to be proud of, they don't want to hear what a wonderful mom you are or what a good basketball player you are. Be prepared and know your strengths and don't tell the interviewer that you don't have any, even if you don't. Relate your strengths to the job for which you are applying.
1. "I have a solid background in Accounts Receivables, great problem solving abilities and I get things done with little direction." And then elaborate a bit on your specific skills, but don't turn this answer into a book. Keep it short and move on.
2. "I have great communication skills and can work with many different types of people of varying personalities and skill levels. I am motivated, disciplined, and focused and am determined to get my job done well and on time."
3. "I meet deadlines. I deliver what I promise. As a result, I've always made my managers look good."

3. How do you get along with different types of people?
The workplace is loaded with a variety of different people with varying personalities and the interviewer wants to know how you think you will fit in. You want to show the interviewer that it does not matter what kind of people you work with - just that work gets done. This shows the interviewer that you are more concerned with outcomes than personalities.
1. "I work well with anyone who delivers what they promise."
2. "I have always been able to get along with anyone. It does not matter how difficult some of my co-workers can be, I've always managed to get along with them. I even manage to get along with those that I don't work with on a daily basis. Getting along with others simply boils down to personality. When you can understand and recognize other personality types, other than your own, getting along becomes that much easier. I may not get it right on the first try, but once I learn more about that person and discover their hot buttons, I won't have any problems."
