17. What are your favorite [name of company] products?
A key component of any interview is being familiar with the company and its products and services. If you already have natural favorites from the company, great!

You’ll be able to provide details that Internet research can’t give.

Include the following in your answer:

  • Why these products are your favorites
  • Any unusual ways you use them that make you stand out
  • Where you tend to buy them
  • Why you prefer them to competing brands

If this is the case, you stand a good chance of having bored your interviewer to death thus creating a negative first impression.
