Do you have an upcoming job interview? Make sure you know how to answer this tricky behavioral interview question: “Would you lie for the company?” OR “Would you lie to save the organization?” Check out my example answer and tips down below!
The reason why interviewers ask this question is to gauge an applicant’s personal integrity or loyalty to the company. Your answer helps them identify your personality and how you’ll behave in the future. Keep in mind that there is no one size fits all. The sample answer is not suitable in all circumstances.
