In any job interview, you will be asked about your weaknesses, your failures, and in some cases, your pet peeves. Why pet peeves? Your answer will tell them something about your personality, how you will be to work with, if you fit into the company culture, and so on. Related: Answering Behavioral Interview Questions Regarding High-Stress Situations You may have seen some advice telling you to deny having any pet peeves, but in my opinion, that answer will seem obviously false and like you’re avoiding the question. Everyone has things that bother them more than others. However, just because you tell them a pet peeve doesn’t mean that you should let loose your very real irritation with something that actually is likely to happen on the job. As in all interview answers, it’s important both to show a positive face and to be strategic by delivering an answer that goes one more step forward in selling you for the job.
