What are Culture Interview Questions? 

Cultural fit interview questions are used to single out candidates whose values, beliefs and behavior fit in with your company's culture. Hiring a candidate that does not fit your company's culture is a serious problem.

Culture interview questions are a set of possible questions that interviewers can ask in a face-to-face interview or over the phone.

Types of Culture Interview Questions:

  • Are the founders meeting the individual business needs of the customer?
  • What processes are in place to ensure that employees are meeting customer requirements?
  • What challenges will the business be facing in the future?
  • Is the organization's culture appropriate given the nature of the business?
  • Is the organization's culture appropriate given the nature of the business and the industry?
  • What are the values of the organization?
  • Do the values align with those of the customer?
  • How do the organization's values fit with those of the customer?
  • Describe the type of work environment in which you can really give your best and be most productive.
  • Did you become a really good friend with any of your colleagues at your previous (or current) workplace? What do you think about having close relationships with your coworkers? Is this a good or a bad practice?
  • Describe a situation where your colleagues disagreed with your ideas. What did you do?
  • Do you prefer working alone or as part of a team? Please explain your answer.
  • What is your opinion about taking work home with you? Do you usually take your work home? Is it good practice in your opinion?
  • Name three things that you like the most about our company.
  • Describe a challenging situation you have faced recently at work, and how you tackled it.
  • What are you passionate about?
  • What does your ideal work day look like?
  • What are, in your opinion, the key ingredients in maintaining successful business relationships?
  • Tell me about the most stressful situation you faced at work. What happened? How did you handle it?

Culture interview questions are necessary in order to assess whether or not a candidate is a good fit for a company. By asking questions about a candidate's cultural background, values, and beliefs, employers can get a better understanding of whether or not they would be compatible with the company's culture. Additionally, culture interview questions can help employers to identify candidates who may be able to contribute to the diversity of the company.
