Interview Questions: Work History


Describe your worst and/or best manager.

Interviewers may sometimes ask "How would you describe your worst and/or best manager?" They are trying to discover if you assess blame or carry a grudge after leaving a situation.

Good Responses

  • Each manager I've had has taught me something. From the good ones, I've learned what to do, from the more challenging ones - what not to do.
  • When first starting out in my career, I had a mentor who helped me a great deal.  We still stay in touch. I'm fortunate to be able to say I've learned something from each manager I've had.
