15 Toughest Interview Questions (and Answers)

FireLink | Kendra Weikman, Associate Editor

8. Why should I hire you?



Bad answer:
“I’m the best candidate for the role.”

A good answer will reiterate your qualifications, and will highlight what makes you unique.

Good answer:
“I’ve been a firefighter for the past five years – my boss has said time and time again that without me, the department wouldn’t function so well. I’ve also taken the time to educate myself on some of the non-standard techniques used in first response. I can react quickly in hectic situations, and can handle the responsibilities of a leadership role. What’s good enough for most people is never really good enough for me.”




Next Question: What is your greatest failure, and what did you learn from it?
