Top Labourer Interview Questions & How To Answer

Here are three top labourer interview questions and tips on how to answer them:

Question No. 1: What do you like about this field?

How to answer: If you are interviewing for a position more specialised than a general labourer, you may start seeing questions about why you enjoy the particular field. Think about why you enjoy working in a warehouse, being on a construction site or creating something as part of a project.

Question No. 2: Have you ever had an accident while working as a labourer? If so, what would you have done differently?

How to answer: Questions like these are generally not designed to weed out people who have had accidents in the past. Rather, they are made to measure how well you have learned and implemented safety measures. Try and make yourself familiar with OSHA regulations. This is also an opportunity to show how you dealt with a tricky situation.

Question No. 3: How do you work as a part of a team?

How to answer: This question is designed to measure how well you work with others. You might talk about a time when you resolved a conflict with a colleague. You can also talk about why you believe it is important for everyone to play their part in the team.

On a scale from one to ten, rate me as an interviewer.

24 Answers

Can't tell you yet. I have to interview more interviewers and make a decision. Don't call me, I'll call you. Less

You lost a point because you did not clarify what is best 1 or 10. You lost another point because that question is irrelevant to the position I am applying for. You lost another point because you asked me and I have no experience on rating interviewers. So, make the math and let me know the result before I keep adding deductions. Less

Who needs scales? You're doing a great job. Keep it up.

Why should we choose you

6 Answers

I am ready to work for your organization and make arrangements to select you because your organization needs employees. And I can not speak English. But I can read and write. Although I know English words, I still do not speak the language fluently. But I also promise that you will become an English speaking employee within two months of your arrival at the company. I know that those of you who do not speak English to the institution will be disqualified and leave. I think it's my misfortune to be like that. It's not your fault. Sri Lankans in our country English is not systematically taught in schools. But even if you reject me, I will try to come to your country for a job someday. I am committed to providing my service to your organization whenever possible. But give me a chance if I can. I promise to work hard to make one day a day when you can have a good conscience. Less
