The question

What did you like/dislike about that job?

Tell me about the best/worst job you have had.

What do you seek or avoid in a job?

What they are looking for

The interviewer here is probing for the boundaries of likes and dislikes. They are trying to characterize you and decide whether you fit into the box of the job they have in mind and whether you will get on with your co-workers.

They may also want to know how self-aware you are, knowing your own strengths and weaknesses, what you do and do not like and what you can and cannot do.

In the emphasis you place on likes and dislikes they may also conclude whether you have an attraction or avoidance preference.

How to answer

Show yourself to be self-aware of in what you seek in jobs, knowing what works and what does not work for you.

A telesales job I once had taught me that I can only stand being on the phone a certain amount of the time and that I am at my best when in front of customers.

You can also show how you like succeeding and are looking to develop from a smaller job.

I was working on short-term projects where I liked being able to deliver value, but eventually it became too easy and I am now looking for something that includes bigger projects.
