Interview Questions: Teamwork

 

Do you prefer working independently or as part of a team?

When asked during an interview, "Do you prefer working independently or as part of a team?", the interviewer wants to know if you're a team player or would rather work by yourself.

Possible Response

I am comfortable working as a part of a team or independently. When researching the 'XYZ Company' and after reading the job description, I saw similarities to my past positions. There appears to be some responsibilities that will require a large amount of independent work and research, while others where teamwork looks to be more effective. I'm comfortable with both.
