Interview Questions: Teamwork


What are your thoughts about working in a team environment?

A common job interview question when applying for an administrative or office position is "Here at 'ABC, Inc.', we strive to be a team that works together to meet our goals. What are your thoughts about working in a team environment?"

Here are possible responses to this interview question that you can edit to fit your personal experiences and background:

I get along well with people and enjoy working in a team environment. In my most recent position, I developed a system to help organize the communication between my coworkers to enhance the productivity of our team.

I am comfortable in both leadership and contributor roles and have a lot to offer to a team environment. I'm outgoing (extrovert), friendly, and have strong communication skills. (If you are an introvert rather than an extrovert, you can still work well within a team. So, don't worry about your specific personality traits too much in this case. Think about how you can contribute and your past experiences.)
