  • There are many places to work, why work here? Wow...what an annoying question, I've never seen that one before! "Because you happen to be hiring" "Because I can't be picky with a bad economy", you can't be honest! What do they want people to put? "Because this is the best store ever and I've dreamed of working here all my life!"???!
    I guess I can't help you...I'm pretty bad at answering questions like those without being sarcastic.

  • They want to know that you know something about their business...that is why they are asking you those types of questions. Do a little research about the company and use it to answer those questions.

  • They ask these questions because in their experience this is is good way to screen out people who do not have the communication skills necessary to succeed in the position. Be honest with yor answers. Be sure to use proper grammar and spelling. If you don't know the answer to a question, then try google.
