Dear All,
I am Yajat from Delhi
I have an interview coming up as a Hr. coordinator. I would like to know that what all questions can be asked (technical, Gk ) etc...
Need the hardest and intense knowledge based questions
Love Human Resources ( HR,)

Sharing across some broad questions...Brain-storm yourself well for each specific question as they are asked to determine a candidate's motivation level, commitment level and over-all productivity as an employee.


- Tel me about yourself? - ‘Sell what the buyer is buying’ match your skills, knowledge and qualifications to what the interviewer is looking for.

Before appearing for an interview an in-depth research is needed about your target company

Best sources could be : fact sheet, annual reports, corporate newsletter, contacts you know at the company or its suppliers, advertisements, articles about the company in the trade press.

- What are your greatest strength and weaknesses? - Some desirable traits employers love to see in their employees - a proven track record as an achiever, Definiteness of purpose, clear goals.

Disguise a strength as a weakness. “I sometimes push my people too hard. I like to work with a sense of urgency and everyone is not always on the same wavelength.”

- Are you happy with your career-to-date? How could you have improved your career progress?

-Why are you leaving (or did you leave) last company ? - Best reasons: more money, opportunity, responsibility or growth.


- What do you know about our company and the role offered to you? - Tell the interviewer why you decided to apply, what you know about the company and why you are especially qualified for the position.

- Describe your ideal company, location and job? - The only right answer is to describe what this company is offering, being sure to make your answer believable with specific reasons, stated with sincerity, why each quality represented by this opportunity is attractive to you.

- What do you think are the most important roles of the HR department in regards to employees in an organization? How would you set their priority list?

- Why should we hire you? How would you proof to be an asset to our organization or

Why do you want to work at our company? - This is the most important question of your interview because interviewer must answer this question favorably in his own mind before you will be hired. So help him out!

Walk through each of the position’s requirements and follow each with a reason why you meet that requirement so well.

- Where do you see yourself five years from now? - Reassure your interviewer that you’re looking for a long-term commitment…that this position entails exactly what you’re looking to do and what you do extremely well. As for your future, you believe that if you perform each job at hand with excellence, future opportunities will take care of themselves.


The interviewer might ask you what you would do in a certain situation involving working under pressure, working with different kinds of people, about issues you have ever had with management or co-workers , about mistakes you have made during previous jobs.

Remember the rule: Never be negative. Stress only the good points, no matter how charmingly you’re invited to be critical.Relate it to a past experience and explain how you handled it then. The manager is trying to see how you operate in certain circumstances.

- I’m concerned that you don’t have as much experience as we’d like in...? - Rely on your master strategy of uncovering the employer’s greatest wants and needs and then matching them with your strengths.

- Tell me honestly about the strong and weak points of your last boss, company, management team, etc.? - . This question is your opportunity to demonstrate your loyalty to those you work with

- What would you say to your boss if he’s crazy about an idea, but you think it stinks? - Remember the rule: In any conflict between values, always choose integrity.

- Tell me about a situation when your work was criticized? - Give an example of a not-too-damaging learning experience from early in your career and relate the ways this lesson has since helped you.

- How good you are as a team player? What would you do if a colleague wasn’t putting his best of efforts in a team work…and this was hurting your department’s performance? - Fall back on universal principles of effective human relations

- How do you feel about working nights and weekends? - If you’re confirmed workaholic, its simpler but if you prefer a more balanced lifestyle, answer: “I love my work and do it exceptionally well. I think the results speak for themselves. Associate yourself with “top-performers-who-leave-not-later-than-six” group.

- Are you willing to relocate or travel ? - First find out where you may have to relocate and how much travel may be involved. Then respond to the question.

- Do you have the stomach to fire people? Have you had experience firing many people? - Describe the rational and sensible management process you follow in both hiring and firing.

- Can you handle the work pressure?

- Tell us about a time when you initiated a people process or program that was successful in your organization?

- What was the toughest challenge you’ve ever faced?

- What changes would you make if you came on board?

- Sell me this stapler.(this pencil…this clock…or some other object on interviewer’s desk).

- “The Salary Question” – How much money do you want ?

For maximum salary negotiating power, remember these five guidelines

Never bring up salary. Let the interviewer do it first. Make the interviewer want you first, and your bargaining position will be much stronger

- If you won a lottery, would you still work?

- A critical question in the interview process usually comes near the end of the meeting. It's the "Do you have any questions for me?" - Never pass up the opportunity to ask well-constructed two or three thoughtful and intelligent follow-up questions.

Are you a fresher? Or you have worked in HR before? What is the profile you have worked in? The likely questions will depend on this.
