In what type of working environments do you thrive?

These questions are just as much for you as they are for the company. You should feel comfortable at your place of work, and ensuring that the company’s working style aligns with yours will allow for a longer-lasting professional relationship. Common questions to determine cultural fit may include:

  • Do you prefer to work in groups or alone?
  • Describe the work environment or culture in which you have experienced the most success.
  • Are you social at work or tend to keep to yourself?

This part of the interview is also a good time to ask questions you may have about the role. Do your homework to understand as much as you can about the company and position before the interview, and ask questions that help you understand if this role will be one you will enjoy coming to every day.
