In a job interview you might stumble on the interview question: “What is your ideal work environment?” or “Describe what kind of work environment you prefer.” Check out the perfect example answer down below.
Why do interviewers ask this interview question? They want to know if your work style and preferences match with their company environment AND if you’ve researched their company culture before going to the interview. Often times they want to know if you’re flexible and OK with working long hours.
√ Do call out things about the company culture that you like and emphasize your flexible personality. Flexibility is a valuable personality trait because it describes the extent to which a person can cope with changes, difficult circumstances and find solutions to sudden issues.
X Don’t say that your ideal workplace is dependent on the coworkers you’ll be working with. The interviewer can’t foresee the chemistry between you and the employees.
