What are your strengths?
What are your weaknesses?
What's one thing you would like to change about yourself?
What makes you better than everyone else?
I feel like I'm sucking up to a complete stranger the entire time. Maybe I don't have enough self confidence, but I really don't think I'm exceptional. While I'm in interviews, I always wonder, "how do other people answer this question?" Do you think everyone is giving the exact same answers? "I am a hard worker, motivated, and dedicated. You want me to be a part of your team because I won't give up until the job is done!" It's not like a lie or anything during interviews, but I feel like I'm trying to make myself sound better than I really am. The worst interview questions I've ever had were probably, "do you wear your seatbelt everywhere you go?" and, "If you could build a house out of any food, what would it be and why?" What kind of a question is that! Naturally, I said chocolate, but I don't understand how that applies to being able to teach someone how to waterski.
One more thing to complain about before I'm done. I might lose it if I have one more interview that goes GREAT and then ends with, "Oh, you know what. I forgot to check your availability date. This position isn't going to work for you. Sorry."
