Here are the questions:

  1. Why have you been out of work so long, and how many others were laid off?
  2. If employed, how do you manage time for interviews?
  3. How did you prepare for this interview?
  4. Do you know anyone who works for us?
  5. Where would you really like to work?
  6. What bugs you about coworkers or bosses?
  7. Can you describe how you solved a work or school problem?
  8. Can you describe a work or school instance in which you messed up?
  9. How does this position compare with others you’re applying for?
  10. If you won the lottery, would you still work?
