HR ROUND Interview Questions & ANSWERS! (How to Pass an HR Round Job Interview!)
How did you handle disagreements with your manager?
The interviewers want to know how well you deal when your ideas are disagreed by your manager/supervisor. Disagreements are part and parcel of working in a team. Hence, the recruiter wants to know if you are capable of handling such disagreements and how well you plan to develop the relationship with the manager.
Some tips to answer this question:
- Explain what the disagreement was.
- How did you overcome that?
- What was your learning outcome?
- Do not speak ill or abuse your manager.
