2. Tell us what aspect of this position makes you the most uncomfortable?

Most people think this is some sort of filter, but it's rarely used that way. This is actually an honesty question. No one on earth will like every aspect of every potential job – it's just not in us. Location? Working hours? People? The company's too big? The company's too small? Honesty really works here – I'd prefer to hear a genuine reason for discomfort (particularly one that comes from real observation of the company) than a platitude that isn't really a discomfort at all. A good way to answer is something like “I've never worked in a company this large before” or “I've heard some strange things about the corporate culture” or “The idea of working for a startup at such an early stage makes me nervous.”

3. Tell us have you done anything in the last year to learn new things/improve yourself in relation to the requirements of this job?

If you put effort into improving yourself every year, you'll not only have a strong resume, but this question will be a non-issue.

6. Tell us have you ever had a serious conflict in a previous employment? How was it resolved?

This question mostly looks for honesty and for the realization that most conflicts have two sides to a story. It also opens the door for people with poor character to start bashing their previous employer, something which leaves a bad taste in most interviewers' mouths. The best way to answer usually involves telling the story, but showing within it that there are two sides to that story and that you've learned from the experience to try to see the other person's perspective.

7. Explain me what was the biggest success you had at your last job?
Explain me what was the biggest failure you had at your last job?

It's usually good to pair these questions, but the important one is the biggest failure. The best applicant is usually someone who will admit that they made a disaster out of something (they're fairly honest and willing to admit errors) and that they learned from it, an incredibly important trait.

8. Tell me are you familiar with any menu planning systems and if so please describe?

I also, did my own 3-days diet analysis; where I try to maintain my daily calories including my daily movements.

11. Tell us about the best supervisor you've ever had.
Tell us about the worst supervisor you've ever had?

These two questions simply seek to figure out what kind of management style will work best for this person and also how that person is likely to manage people. Let's say I work in an organization with a very loose-knit management structure that requires a lot of self-starting. If that's the case, I want to either hear that the “best” boss was very hands-off or that the “worst” boss was a micromanager. On the other hand, if I came from a strict hierarchical organization, I might want to see the exact opposite – a “best” boss that provided strong guidance and a good relationship or a “worst” boss that basically left the applicant to blow in the wind. Your best approach is to answer this as honestly as possible – the interviewer will have a good idea of the corporate culture and, frankly, if you try to slip into a company where you don't match the culture, you'll have a very hard time fitting in and succeeding. These questions might be worded as “what kind of management style works for you.”

A recruiter is going to take you at your word if you say your best strength is managing people.

In this case, the recruiter might have concerns that you won't take instructions from someone else. A better strength for an administrative assistant is the ability to multi-task effectively. This demonstrates to the recruiter that you can work in a fast-paced, time-sensitive position and do the work others require of you. Again, frame your answer to fulfill what you perceive to be the biggest challenge in the job.

22. Can you about your dream job?

Never say this job. Never say another specific job. Both answers are very bad – the first one sends the warning flags flying and the second one says that the person's not really interested in sticking around. Instead, stick to specific traits – name aspects of what would be your dream job. Some of them should match what the company has available, but it's actually best if they don't all perfectly match.
