The question

What sorts of people do you not get on with?

Tell me about somebody with who you have problems.

Have you ever had difficulties working with other people?

What they are looking for

In this question they may be on the lookout for whether or not you generally

How to answer

Remember that you do not have to answer all questions -- this question is assumptive and presupposes that there are people you do not get on with. You could elect to show a bit of spirit and deny the charge, though it is generally a good idea to try to answer the question.

Hmm. I get on with most people, but then I guess some take more effort than others.

Make sure that the types of people you don't get on with are those that would be difficult for anyone. You can use the opportunity to contrast yourself with this person, promoting your good qualities further.

I do not like bullies, who try to get what they want through aggression. In particular it is difficult to like those who take advantage of those who are vulnerable.

Give an example if you have one, but show your integrity and do not name names.

I worked with a person like this recently. When he was unfairly criticising a new employee, I responded strongly. He didn't like that. I still keep a professional relationship with him, but I can't say I call him a friend.
