10 Worst Answers to Healthcare Interview Questions


When Were Your Most Satisfied in Your Job?

Interviewers want to know what makes you tick – this includes things you like and dislike. If your favorite part of your last job was charting and you are interviewing for a job in medical records, an interviewer will be thrilled that your interests match the job description. However, if your favorite thing was charting and there is no charting involved in the job you are vying for, an interviewer may be curious as to why you are applying.

Bad Answer: I didn’t enjoy very much of anything in my last position which is why I am looking for a new job.

Better Answer: I really enjoyed working with patients and providing care. I especially liked working with elderly patients because they can teach you so much.

Best Answer: When I was promoted to DON, I was particularly satisfied at work. I felt that I had worked diligently on the med-surg floor for 10 years and the promotion was well-deserved. I also enjoyed the challenge of supervising my fellow nurses, though I always tried to remain a peer rather than an authority figure.
