I've been on I don't know how many dozens of interviews, and it always seems to come down to that I have a bad fit. It's things like:
-What is your management style?
-Strengths and weaknesses?
-MD notices something wrong, what do you do?
-Why this group?
-Do you have any questions for us?
And every time, it never works. I've long since practiced these responses - a collaborative management style, one which allows for people to offer insight and back it up to come up with a mutual solution but I can still guide them to the answer if need be; good strengths and weakness which can be spun as a strength but isn't a "I work too hard" non-answer; I take responsibility, let them know before they meet the client, and come up with best practices for how to avoid it in the future; because it's a great team with a flat culture, very collaborative, and has some great deals under it's belt; because I've been following the industry for forever and can talk about [this deal] and [these companies] in great detail as well as the broader applicability; I genuinely enjoy the structuring process and strategic finance approach; how can I stand out in a role like this to be a truly great hire instead of just a good one.
Of course, I also structure these in terms of how I've done similar things in specific other points in my career, to demonstrate these things with actual details of the work that I've done and how I added value.
The problem is, those all sound** super generic**, and I wind up sounding like some kind of rambling corporate robot - but I don't know what to change. It is honestly just how I am. Every bank is the exact same from an interviewing perspective, although of course I never say that, so it's impossible to tell why specifically them besides "good team, flat culture, good deals, good team size and fit for what I want". I already do a ton of research on the group/team members/process, so I can't come up with good questions. It feels like I'm going insane.
So, my question is:
-What, specifically, are good answers to these things that doesn't sound hyper-generic?
-What exactly are some good examples of specific questions to be asking here?
