Open ended interview questions are typically used when the same questions are asked of all interviewees. The applicants can answer the questions however they choose to respond. There are no yes or no or right or wrong answers. In-depth responses are expected, along with a description or explanation.

Do include examples in your responses to open ended interview questions. Providing detail and relating your response to the job you are applying for and the company, will bolster your candidacy because the employer uses the interview responses to compare applicants.

Here are open ended interview questions you may be asked, plus sample answers.
