How do you feel about doing repetitive work?

How do you feel about doing repetitive work?

You can say that I understand that every job has an element of repetitive work but I enjoy fulfilling all the aspects of my job with equal enthusiasm and give them my 100%.

Any job you take up will have an element of redundancy and the interviewer wants to see if you get bored of it. You can say something like: I like to do creative work but I also know that any job has an element of redundancy. So, it is fine with me.

  • This question can be intimidating if you aren't prepared for it before hand. Most of us might find it boring with repetitive work and some even complain of losing interest at work if they are asked to do repetitive work. But let's face the truth. You have to accept that repetitive work is a part of most career options. Employers know that your work will involve similar work and wants to find out if you will be able to keep up your interests and enthusiasm or would soon succumb to monotony.

    You will have to make the interviewer believe that you are perfectly comfortable even with doing repetitive work but would also like to keep upgrading and improvising to make things interesting and productive. You have to show an understanding of the work pattern and how necessary it becomes to keep up with growing tends which you would keep learning and adding to your work to avoid monotony.

    "As much as I would like to try hands at different types of work at varied levels, I do understand that repetitive work is a part of most careers including mine. I believe that my dedication towards work does not fade with time or due to monotony. I keep myself interested in my work by doing the same task in different ways or patterns. I also believe in upgrading knowledge and skills with time and hence I always come up with new ways of keeping my task interesting."
