Company work is a group effort, and a person has to be able to interact with several types of people to succeed in his/her professional life.
There were many researches on the dynamics of co workers, since relationships between coworkers are related to job performance.
Therefore, one of the job interview questions that the hiring manager may ask about is your relationship with co workers (i.e. and teammates) to know how good a team player you are or if you have effective communications skills.
They want to know that you are comfortable working with others.
This article suggests the best way on how to answer a job interview question: What was your relationship with co workers. Or what would your co workers say about you?
To answer this question it is best to evaluate the interviewing company’s atmosphere. Is it informal, semiformal or formal?
You should try to speak positively about your co-workers, while not completely ignoring possible negative aspects.
You can reply to this question with this answer:
“I had an excellent professional relationship with my co workers, which gelled quite nicely with the company environment. People assisted one another.
We worked as a team to solve problems and learned new skills to reach our team objectives.”
“I made some good friends for life, who today can vouch for me on a professional basis.“
Be aware that good personal relationships between you and co workers (such as having fun and enjoying one another on a social level) are not important to discuss as they do not correlate to your high performance on the job.
