Answering the “what is your weakness” question

by Evil HR Lady on September 17, 2012

 Dear Evil HR Lady,

I have an interview next week for a manager position. I am seeking your help answering the question: What is your greatest weakness?

Here are three I’ve identified for myself: 1. I am not good listener (but I am working on it); 2. Sometimes I am tough on my team and drive with tight reins; 3. I am too involved in work — that is my weakness and strength at the same time (a weakness for my family, and a strength for my company).

“Oh, super! We’ve been looking for someone who procrastinates and spends half the day on Facebook!”

Sounds like my dream job!

I once answered that I have terrible upper body strength. The interviewer burst out laughing. I then explained that every “desk job” I’ve held had a secret heavy lifting component including one where I was expected to move furniture two floors every week to set up for a meeting. I got the job.
