15 Tricky Interview Questions and How to Answer Them

PoliceLink


6. What’s your greatest weakness?


Bad answer:
“I work too hard,” or for the comedian, “Blondes.”

This question is a great opportunity to put a positive spin on something negative, but you don’t want your answer to be cliché – joking or not. Instead, try to use a real example of a weakness you have learned to overcome.

Good answer:
“I’ve never been very comfortable with public speaking – which as you know, can be a hindrance in this field. Realizing this was a problem, I asked my previous department if I could enroll in a speech workshop. I took the class, and was able to overcome my lifelong fear. Since then, I’ve given several safety presentations to school children across the county. I still don’t love it, but no one else can tell!”

    Well first let me say this I'm a very tuff young lady. I don't take anything from anybody. I dislike criminals with a passion and I know what I'm capable of.
