The COVID-19 pandemic has upended companies' recruitment plans. Many companies have decided to put a halt in hiring or cutting jobs. For work that requires certain skillsets, employers turn to talents who can work part-time or on a temporary basis to save costs. Here are 20 of the most common part-time job interview questions, according to Glassdoor

Review the questions you will most likely be asked and consider how you’ll respond.

  1. What days/hours are you available to work?

    “I enjoy the flexibility of part-time work and am excited for the chance to give my undivided attention to your company _____days a week. If my schedule changes in the future and allows me the time to do my best work for you full time, I would love the opportunity for a permanent job.”
