PSW Interview Questions

After recently completing a personal support worker job interview, one of our writers was kind enough to share some of the questions that were ‘fired’ their way during the interview process.

Practice and formulate your own answers for these questions (and any other questions that you can think of) before any job interview in this field. In-fact, it would be recommended to ask yourself these questions about an employer before applying, putting some of the answers into your cover letter and listing some of the important qualifications, attributes and skills within your resume.

Onto the questions (listed in random order):

Where do you see yourself in five years?

What are your strengths, weaknesses, attributes?

What is your definition of on the job confidentiality? (regarding clients, workplace situations, etc)

The answers to procedural questions (how to fill out an incident report, operating lifts, wheelchair vans or any other employer specific duties and tasks)

How did you find out about this company?

Explain a difficult situation with a co-worker. How did you solve it?

What are your accreditations, achievements, certifications, etc? (where you went to school, first-aid, cpr, and any other relevant info)

Why are you the right person for this position?

Why did you choose to become a personal support worker?

If you could improve one thing about yourself (on the job related), what would it be?

Are you able to work by yourself and within a team environment?

If you witness client abuse while on the job, what is the first thing that you do?
