The question

Which job did you like least?

Tell me about a job you did not like.

What do you like the least about jobs you've had?

What they are looking for

The interviewer here is seeking things that you do not like in jobs. This first will be matched against the job on offer and tell them whether you are mismatched to it. It will also give them information to help decide whether or not you are somebody they would like to employ in any job.

How to answer

As ever, be very careful about questions that may show you in a negative light. Do not give a null answer; find something relatively harmless to dislike but do not give a trivial answer ('I did not like the coffee').

In one job all communication had to be done through my manager, which really slowed things down and led to frequent misunderstanding.

If you can, find something that shows you in a positive light and particularly suited to the job at hand.

There was just too much casual chat and things went really slowly. Some social connection helps communication but this actually hampered it.
