  4. Give them a real answer (eg: "I don't have the best time management skills") , but then follow it up with what you are currently doing to improve that aspect of yourself ("But I'm learning to use my calendar to schedule my time more effectively. I've recently discovered that my Google calendar will even email me reminders.")

    Don't give them a bullshit answer like "I work too hard" or "I'm a perfectionist". They want to know that you're self-aware and honest.

    1. Don't use this answer.. interviewers want to see that you can think, and see how you overcome your weakness. They came to Waterloo to choose a candidate, not joke around.

    2. ^ I think it's fair to assume they did in fact come to joke around if they ask something so stupid

  6. whatever you do tell them, just make sure that you can make it a positive attribute. ie. I tend to take on too much at once, however this has shown me in the past what my limits are, and it has allowed me to better manage tasks.

    1. Ew. Any rational interview will see right through that bs.
      Actually I guess any rational interviewer would never ask this retarded question to begin with. Hmmm....

    2. No, say an actual weakness and how you overcome it.

      For instance, I have a really hard time remembering people's names when we first meet, so after I meet someone I repeat their name in my head and associate it with a fact/place.

      But yes, this is a stupid question to ask.

  7. Interviewer: "what is your biggest weakness?"
    Me: "Honesty"
    Interviewer: "I don't think that's a weakness"
    Me: "I don't give a fuck about what you think"

    Not OC, just something I read
