Here is an example of a possibly ok interview, as modeled by the actors,
Yes, Ma'am. Hope you are pleased with me.
Hello there. I am guessing you are the one that came to be interviewed about the stock associate position?
Well, I found this job off of Monster dot com, just browsing around. I looked at the description for this job and thought that it had completely described me.
Well, now that we are in the office, tell me about how you found out about this position.
I know that this company actually focuses on products and ensuring that everything is safe and everything is accurately in stock. I also believe what sets this company apart from other companies is the fact that you guys actually state what you are looking for and the qualities in a worker.
Let's put your knowledge to the test. What do you know about our company and what do you think sets us apart from other companies?
Ella has arrived at the company for which she is being interviewed for. She feels anxious and desperate to get the job, not for the money though. She is only 17, but her mind is older.
I believe that I really have a knack for group work and that I could pull a group together even if we have bad teamwork. But I could also work by myself, so I can get a chance to figure out something myself. I am really known for this type of work. Independent, and reasonable.
May I ask what you believe are your areas of strength, and what you do best with?
Ella is asked the question about how she found the job, so she answers with a full-on honest response. The best way to win over the interviewee's heart.
Well, I've never spoken about that, but I can say although I can work in groups, I tend to get distracted sometimes and work too easily with some people and get a bit too attached.
And what about your weaknesses? Its great to know them so you can focus on improving them.
The company Ella may start working for is very detailed for what they are looking for, and the interviewee is starting to get skeptical about what Ella really knows, or if everything is actually fabricated.
Before you leave, what is the greatest challenge you have overcome?
Ella "believes" her strong areas are being able to work both in teams and by herself, but this type of job doesn't really require teamwork, so that proves Ella doesn't know much about the company and what they do. She may have to redeem herself for her mistake.
Well, a least she told the truth about her weakness and had that at hand, so now the interviewee can really focus on what to do with Ella, and how she should help her along.
This is the ending scene where Ella has to leave the interview hoping she did a good job, and that they call her back. The interviewee asked the question about any challenges she ever had. She responds truthfully and wholly.
I have had problems in work before where I would be too scared to complete a job because I felt too self-conscious about it. But I'm starting to improve upon myself, I work harder and see what things bother me the most and make sure they don't again.
