One of the things I was asked was about my ability to persuade and/or influence others, which is a good way of getting an insight into how I interact with people. I was also asked what I liked most and least about work in general, which I hadn't really thought about before.
They asked me experience based questions, related to project management, challenges, positive experiences and my aspirations, asking me for real work/life examples.
