Communication Interview Questions

The following sample job interview questions about communication enable the employer to assess your candidate’s skills in communication.

  • You attend a weekly staff meeting with your supervisor. How have you ensured, in the past, that the information you have received is communicated to your reporting staff and coworkers?
  • Information you believe to be untrue or confidential has reached you via the grapevine. What actions have you taken in the past to take care of situations such as this when communication is out of control?
  • Give me an example, from your past work experiences, about a time when you were part of a project or team and you never knew what was happening with the other action items or participants. How did you handle this situation?
  • Rate your communication skills on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 representing excellent communication skills. Give me three examples from your past work experiences that demonstrate the selected number is accurate.
  • Describe the work environment or culture and its communication style in which you experience the most success.
  • Describe five things about the communication within an organization that must be present for you to work most effectively.
  • How often do you believe it is necessary to withhold information from staff members who report to you? Would you say you do this regularly, not often, or never? Under what circumstances do you limit communication in your experience?
  • When you have had a boss, in the past, who fails to adequately communicate with you, how have you handled this?
  • When you have entered a new workplace in the past, describe how you have gone about meeting and developing relationships with your new coworkers, supervisors, and reporting staff.
