McAfee ePO Admin Interview Questions & Answers

Q.1  What is McAfee ePO ?

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) is the most advanced, extensible, and scalable centralized security management software in the industry.

A single console for all your security management.

  • Get a unified view of your security posture with drag-and-drop dashboards that provide security intelligence across endpoints, data, mobile and networks.
  • Simplify security operations with streamlined workflows for proven efficiencies.
  • Flexible security management options allow you to select either a traditional premises-based or a cloud-based management version of McAfee ePO.
  • Leverage your existing third-party IT infrastructure from a single security management console with extensible architecture.

Q.2  Which is latest version of ePO?

The latest version of McAfee products

  •   ePolicy Orchestrator Ver 5.3.1
  •   Virus Scan Enterprise VSE 8.8 Patch 6
  •   McAfee Agent 5.0.1

To determine the ePO version number when you are logged on to ePO:

ePO 5.x: The version number is shown on the left pane of the Menu screen.

You can also determine the version by checking the version information contained within the server.ini file on the ePO server. You can open this file using Notepad.
The default location for the server.ini file is as follows:

…\Program Files\McAfee\ePolicy Orchestrator\DB

Q.3  What are the benefits of ePolicy Orchestrator Software?

ePolicy Orchestrator software is an extensible management platform that enables centralized policy management and enforcement of your security policies.

Using ePolicy Orchestrator software, you can perform these network security tasks:

  • Manage and enforce network security using policy assignments and client tasks.
  • Update the detection definition (DAT) files, anti-virus engines, and other security content required by your security software to ensure that your managed systems are secure.
  • Create reports, using the built-in query system wizard, that display informative user-configured charts and tables containing your network security data.

Q.4 Explain the Important Components of ePolicy Orchestrator Software and what they do ?

These components make up ePolicy Orchestrator software.

  • McAfee ePO server — The Center of your managed environment. The server delivers security policies and tasks, controls updates, and processes events for all managed systems.
  • Database — The central storage component for all data created and used by ePolicy Orchestrator. You can choose whether to house the database on your McAfee ePO server or on a separate system, depending on the specific needs of your organization.
  • McAfee Agent — A vehicle of information and enforcement between the McAfee ePO server and each managed system. The agent retrieves updates, ensures task implementation, enforces policies, and forwards events for each managed system. It uses a separate secure data channel to transfer data to the server. A McAfee Agent can also be configured as a SuperAgent.
  • Master repository — The central location for all McAfee updates and signatures, residing on the McAfee ePO server. The master repository retrieves user-specified updates and signatures from McAfee or from user-defined source sites.
  • Distributed repositories — Local access points strategically placed throughout your environment for agents to receive signatures, product updates, and product installations with minimal bandwidth impact. Depending on how your network is configured, you can set up SuperAgent, HTTP, FTP, or UNC share distributed repositories.
  • Remote Agent Handlers — A server that you can install in various network locations to help manage agent communication, load balancing, and product updates. Remote Agent Handlers are comprised of an Apache server and an event parser. They can help you manage the needs of large or complex network infrastructures by allowing you more control over agent-server communication.
  • Registered servers — Used to register other servers with your McAfee ePO server. Registered server types include:

LDAP server — Used for Policy Assignment Rules and to enable automatic user account creation.

SNMP server — Used to receive an SNMP trap. Add the SNMP server’s information so that ePolicy Orchestrator knows where to send the trap.

Database server — Used to extend the advanced reporting tools provided with ePolicy Orchestrator software.

Q.5  How the ePO software works ?

ePolicy Orchestrator software is designed to be extremely flexible. It can be set up in many different ways, to meet your unique needs.

The software follows the classic client-server model, in which a client system (system) calls into your server for instructions. To facilitate this call to the server, a McAfee Agent is deployed to each system in your network. Once an agent is deployed to a system, the system can be managed by your McAfee ePO server. Secure communication between the server and managed system is the bond that connects all the components of your ePolicy Orchestrator software. The figure below shows an example of how your McAfee ePO server and components inter-relate in your secure network environment.

ePO server components

1 Your McAfee ePO server connects to the McAfee update server to pull down the latest security content.

2 The ePolicy Orchestrator database stores all the data about the managed systems on your network,including:

  • System properties
  • Policy information
  • Directory structure
  • All other relevant data the server needs to keep your systems up-to-date.

3 McAfee Agents are deployed to your systems to facilitate:

  • Policy enforcement
  • Product deployments and updates
  • Reporting on your managed systems

4 Agent-server secure communication (ASSC) occurs at regular intervals between your systems and server. If remote Agent Handlers are installed in your network, agents communicate with the server through their assigned Agent Handlers.

5 Users log onto the ePolicy Orchestrator console to perform security management tasks, such as running queries to report on security status or working with your managed software security policies.

6 The McAfee update server hosts the latest security content, so your ePolicy Orchestrator can pull the content at scheduled intervals.

7 Distributed repositories placed throughout your network host your security content locally, so agents can receive updates more quickly.

8 Remote Agent Handlers help to scale your network to handle more agents with a single McAfee ePO server.

9 Automatic Response notifications are sent to security administrators to notify them that an event has occurred.

Q.6  What is default Console Port of ePO?

Console-to-application server communication port 8443 ( TCP port that the ePO Application Server service uses to allow web browser UI access )

Q.7  What is the default Group policy of ePO?

Until you create additional policies, all computers are assigned the McAfee Default policy.

The McAfee Default policy is configured with settings recommended by McAfee to protect many environments and ensure that all computers can access important websites and applications until you have a chance to create a customized policy.

You cannot rename or modify the McAfee Default policy. When you add computers to your account, the McAfee Default policy is assigned to them. When you delete a policy that is assigned to one or more groups, the McAfee Default policy is assigned to those groups automatically.

The first time you create a new policy, the McAfee Default policy settings appear as a guideline. This enables you to configure only the settings you want to change without having to configure them all.

After you create one or more new policies, you can select a different default policy for your account. In the future, new policies will be prepopulated with these default settings, and the new default policy is assigned to new computers (if no other policy is selected) and groups whose policy is deleted.

Q.8  On which port ePO communicates with client agent?

Agent wake-up communication port SuperAgent repository port: 8081

(TCP port that agents use to receive agent wake-up requests from the ePO server or Agent Handler.
TCP port that the SuperAgents configured as repositories that are used to receive content from the ePO server during repository replication, and to serve content to client machines)

Q.9  What is the purpose of a SuperAgent?

The SuperAgent is an agent with the ability to contact all agents in the same subnet as the SuperAgent, using the SuperAgent wakeup call. Its use is triggered by Global Updating being enabled on the ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) server, and it provides a bandwidth efficient method of sending agent wakeup calls.

If you operate in a Windows environment and plan to use agent wake-up calls to initiate Agent-server communication, consider converting an agent on each network broadcast segment into a SuperAgent.

SuperAgents distribute the bandwidth load of concurrent wake-up calls. Instead of sending agent wake-up calls from the server to every agent, the server sends the SuperAgent wake-up call to SuperAgents in the selected System Tree segment. When SuperAgents receive this Wake-up call, they send broadcast wake-up calls to all agents in their network broadcast segments.

The process is:

  1. Server sends a wake-up call to all SuperAgents.
  2. SuperAgents broadcast a wake-up call to all agents in the same broadcast segment.
  3. All agents (regular agents and SuperAgents) exchange data with the server.
  4. An agent without an operating SuperAgent on its broadcast segment is not prompted to communicate with the server.

To deploy enough SuperAgents to the appropriate locations, first determine the broadcast segments in your environment and select a system (preferably a server) in each segment to host a SuperAgent. Be aware that agents in broadcast segments without SuperAgents do not receive the broadcast wake-up call, so they do not call in to the server in response to a wake-up call.

Agent and SuperAgent wake-up calls use the same secure channels. Ensure that:

  • The agent wake-up communication port (8081 by default) is not blocked.
  • The agent broadcast communication port (8082 by default) is not blocked.

Q.10  What is McAfee Agent Handler?

Agent handlers are the component of ePolicy Orchestrator that handles communications between agent and server.

Multiple remote handlers can help you address scalability and topology issues in your network, and in some cases using multiple agent handlers can limit or reduce the number of ePO servers in your environment. They can provide fault tolerant and load-balanced communication with a large number of agents including geographically distributed agents.

Q.11  How agent handlers work ?

Agent handlers distribute network traffic generated by agent-to-server communication by assigning managed systems or groups of systems to report to a specific agent handler. Once assigned, a managed system performs regular ASCIs to its agent handler instead of the main ePO server. The handler provides updated site lists, policies, and policy assignment rules just as the ePO server does. The handler also caches the contents of the master repository, so that agents can pull product update packages, DATs, and other necessary information.

NOTE: When an agent checks in with its handler, if the handler does not have the updates needed, the handler retrieves them from the assigned repository and caches them, while passing the update through to the agent.

Q.12  Considerations for scalability ?

How you manage your scalability depends on whether you use multiple McAfee ePO servers, multiple remote Agent Handlers, or both.With ePolicy Orchestrator software, you can scale your network vertically or horizontally.

  • Vertical scalability — Adding and upgrading to bigger, faster hardware to manage larger and larger deployments. Scaling your McAfee ePO server infrastructure vertically is accomplished by upgrading your server hardware, and using multiple McAfee ePO servers throughout your network, each with its own database.
  • Horizontal scalability — Accomplished by increasing the deployment size that a single McAfee ePO server can manage. Scaling your server horizontally is accomplished by installing multiple remote Agent Handlers, each reporting to a single database.

Q.13  When to use multiple McAfee ePO servers ?

Depending on the size and make-up of your organization, using multiple McAfee ePO servers might be required.

Some scenarios in which you might want to use multiple servers include:

  • You want to maintain separate databases for distinct units within your organization.
  • You require separate IT infrastructures, administrative groups, or test environments.
  • Your organization is distributed over a large geographic area, and uses a network connection with relatively low bandwidth such as a WAN, VPN, or other slower connections typically found between remote sites.

Using multiple servers in your network requires that you maintain a separate database for each server.

You can roll up information from each server to your main McAfee ePO server and database.

Q.14  When to use multiple remote Agent Handlers ?

Multiple remote Agent Handlers help you manage large deployments without adding additional McAfee ePO servers to your environment.

The Agent Handler is the component of your server responsible for managing agent requests. Each McAfee ePO server installation includes an Agent Handler by default. Some scenarios in which you might want to use multiple remote Agent Handlers include:

  • You want to allow agents to choose between multiple physical devices, so they can continue to call in and receive policy, task, and product updates; even if the application server is unavailable, and you don’t want to cluster your McAfee ePO server.
  • Your existing ePolicy Orchestrator infrastructure needs to be expanded to handle more agents, more products, or a higher load due to more frequent agent-server communication intervals (ASCI).
  • You want to use your McAfee ePO server to manage disconnected network segments, such as systems that use Network Address Translation (NAT) or in an external network.

Multiple Agent Handlers can provide added scalability and lowered complexity in managing large deployments. However, because Agent Handlers require a very fast network connection, there are some scenarios in which you should not use them, including:

  • To replace distributed repositories. Distributed repositories are local file shares intended to keep agent communication traffic local. While Agent Handlers do have repository functionality built in, they require constant communication with your ePolicy Orchestrator database, and therefore consume a significantly larger amount of bandwidth.
  • To improve repository replication across a WAN connection. The constant communication back to your database required by repository replication can saturate the WAN connection.
  • To connect a disconnected network segment where there is limited or irregular connectivity to the ePolicy Orchestrator database.

Q.15  What is DLP ?

Data loss prevention (DLP) is a strategy for making sure that end users do not send sensitive or critical information outside the corporate network. The term is also used to describe software products that help a network administrator control what data end users can transfer.

Q.16  What is Endpoint Encryption for PC?

Endpoint Encryption for PC (EEPC) is a computer security system that prevents data stored on a hard drive from being read or used by an unauthorized person. With EEPC, users are forced to identify themselves to the security system when the computer is started. This is done by requiring up to three authentication methods:

  • Password
  • User ID
  • Token (Loaded on a floppy disk or any ISO 7816 smart card)

If the person accessing the computer fails to enter the correct information, EEPC prevents access to the computer as well as the encrypted data stored within. To gain access to an EEPC protected PC when using a smart card, users must insert their card into the reader when the EEPC authentication screen is displayed, then type their password and optional user ID. After the smart card verifies the password and  EEPC has established that the correct token is used, the user is then granted access to the computer.

 Q.17  Is the Event Parser service running?

On the server side, ePO consists of three separate services:

  • The ePO Server service, responsible for the direct handling of Agent-to-Server communication;
  • The Event Parser service, responsible for the insertion of new client-generated events into the ePO database;
  • The ePO Server Application Server service, where all logic takes place and which also allows you to manage ePO.

Under certain circumstances, particularly when there is a problem with the database, it is possible the Event Parser service stops working. This prevents new events from being added to the database, essentially leaving you blind. Check whether the Event Parser service is running and correct any problems if this is not the case.

 Q.18 Explain Tag and Tags functionality in McAfee ePO?

Tags allow users to create labels that can be applied to systems manually or automatically, based on the criteria assigned to the tag.

Similar to IP sorting criteria, you can use tags for automated sorting into groups. Tags are used to identify systems with similar characteristics. If you organize some of your groups by such characteristics, you can create and assign tags based on such criteria and use these tags as group sorting criteria to ensure these systems are automatically placed within the appropriate groups.

Tag functionality:
You can do the following with tags:

  • Apply one or more tags to one or more systems.
  • Apply tags manually.
  • Apply tags automatically, based on user-defined criteria, when the agent calls in.
  • Exclude systems from tag application.
  • Run queries to group systems with certain tags, then take direct actions on the resulting list of systems.
  • Base System Tree sorting criteria on tags to place systems into the appropriate System Tree groups automatically.

Types of tags

There are two types of tags:

  • Tags without criteria – These tags can be applied only to selected systems in the System Tree (manually) and systems listed in the results of a query (manually or on a scheduled basis).
  • Criteria-based tags – These tags are applied to all non-excluded systems at each agent-server communication. Such tags use criteria based on any properties sent by agent. They can also be applied to all non-excluded systems on-demand.

 Q.19  How agent-server communication works ?

McAfee Agent communicates with the McAfee ePO server periodically to send events and, ensure all settings are up-to-date.

These communications are referred to as agent-server communication. During each agent-server communication, McAfee Agent collects its current system properties, as well as events that have not yet been sent, and sends them to the server. The server sends new or changed policies and tasks to McAfee Agent, and the repository list if it has changed since the last agent-server communication. McAfee Agent enforces the new policies locally on the managed system and applies any task or repository changes.

The McAfee ePO server uses an industry-standard Transport Layer Security (TLS) network protocol for secure network transmissions.

When the McAfee Agent is first installed, it calls in to the server within few seconds. Thereafter, the McAfee Agent calls in whenever one of the following occurs:

  • The agent-server communication interval (ASCI) elapses.
  • McAfee Agent wake-up calls are sent from the McAfee ePO server or Agent Handlers.
  • A scheduled wake-up task runs on the client systems.
  • Communication is initiated manually from the managed system (using Agent Status monitor or command line).
  • McAfee Agent wake-up calls sent from the McAfee ePO server.

 Q.20 How often the McAfee Agent calls into the McAfee ePO server ?

The Agent-to-Server Communication Interval (ASCI) default setting is 60 minutes means that McAfee Agent contacts the McAfee ePO server once every hour.

Personal interview-FAQs

Personal Interview questions :


1. Tell me something about your self ?

     Go prepared for this question, as this is the most frequently asked question in the interview. Answer it covering your work experience, educational qualifications and a little information about your family background. Try to focus on key areas of your work while talking about your professional experience. This is an open ended question and can help you in taking the interview in which ever direction you want it to go. You should know where to put a full stop to provoke the desired question from the interviewer.


2. Why does this role interest you? Or why have you applied for this job? 

Keep the focus of the answer to this question on your skills, experience and personal qualities. Link the job requirement to your skills rather than talking about the challenges, career and progression. 


3. Why do you think should we take you for this job? 

Don’t panic if you are asked this question. Make sure that you have understood the job profile well before you go for the interview. Relate your qualifications and work experience with the job requirements. If there are any new things that you are expected to perform in the new job, say that you are always open to learn the new things and take up the new challenges.


4. What motivates you at work? 

You can say that competition and new challenges motivate you at work. 


5. Why do you want to leave your present job or why did you leave your last job? 

The reasons for switching the job could be numerous. The best answer to offer for this question is to say, “for better prospects”. Now they can ask you another question, what do you mean by better prospects? To this you can say, better prospects in terms of experience, and exposure. If you have been made redundant, put your words across very carefully. Your wrong words can give an impression that only you were the one whose position was made redundant, which hardly might be the case. May be you can say something like, “Over last 8 months a lot of restructuring was going on in the company and 40 positions became surplus. One of them was mine. I have learnt a lot during my tenure at XYZ Company and I am sure I can add a lot of value to a position like the one we are discussing about”. 


6. What is your greatest strength? 

Interpret this question as, what is your greatest relevant strength? Or Why should we hire you? Tell them a strength that they want to buy. For this you will need to properly understand the job profile and keep your answer ready. For example, if the job needs you to have convincing answers ready for the any type customer’s questions, you can sell “your presence of mind” or if you are required to change you sector or industry you can offer “your adaptability” as an answer. It is important to keep ready at least 2 examples of the mentioned strength.  


7. What is your greatest weakness? 

There are 3 ways to tackle this question. Judge the situation and use one of them.

First way: Use your sense of humor. If the interview is proceeding in the light way and you have built up a good rapport with the interviewer, you can get out of it by saying “Ice-cream”. 

Second Way: If you have to answer this question seriously, give a weakness which doesn’t relate to the job under discussion. For example, you can say, I have been using a camera since childhood but I still don’t know how to mend it. If it is spoiled, I will need to take it to an expert.

Third way: Understand the requirement of the role under discussion and say that your friends accuse you of having that weakness but you think that it is important for you to perform your work effectively. For example, if the job needs a detailed study and leaving a single step might need you to re-run the whole process say that “My colleagues accuse me of having a too much eye for detail but I have experienced that to do this work you need to go into details rather than cutting corners. I have worked with people following a shorter .


8. What is your greatest achievement? 

The underlying agenda is to know what personal qualities were required to achieve it. Don’t go back too far to answer this question as this might give an impression that you have not achieved anything since then. Find a relevant answer in the recent past for this question. If you are a fresher and have been a topper of your college or university, you can say that during the interview. 


9. Are you ambitious?  

You can say that I am very ambitious in the way that I don’t like to get a feeling of stagnancy. I want that I should always be getting new experiences and learning new things. 


10. What qualities would you look for in a candidate for this position? 

To answer this question, you need to analyze the requirements of the job profile before appearing for the interview. The answer to this question would estimate your understanding of the role under discussion. 


11. Have you appeared for an interview with other companies? Or how is your job search going on? 

This question gives you an opportunity to let the interviewer know that other companies are also interested in hiring you and gives you leverage while negotiating the salary. You can say, Yes, I am in the final round of discussion with two other companies. Approach the interviewer as a “Problem Solver” and not as a “Job Beggar”.  


12. Can you name the companies to whom you are talking? 

You can maintain your integrity by refusing to disclose the names. You can simply say, they haven’t notified these openings so I believe they would not like their names to be revealed. At times, taking the competitor’s names might increase your chances of being hired. Analyze the situation and answer accordingly. 


13. Are you ready to relocate? 

You can say, for a right position and right company relocation should not be a problem. Do not close the discussion at the earlier stage by saying “No”. 


14. You have stayed for a long time with your last company-Why? 

Staying with the same company for too long may be considered as the candidate being un-ambitious. While answering this question you can say, “Yes, I preferred to stay with them all this while because I was regularly adding value to my experience there and I was growing as a professional”. 


15. You have switched many jobs-why?  

Too much job hopping gives an impression that the candidate is unstable and unreliable but you can put this query to ease by saying that you switched jobs to broaden your experience.  


16. What was your biggest mistake?  

There’s nothing wrong in admitting a mistake. A human being is bound to commit mistakes. This time it is advantageous to go back as far as possible in the past and find an answer. The advantage of doing this is that a youngster is expected to commit more mistakes than a mature and seasoned person. This would give an impression that since that time you have committed mistakes but not that big. Take the word “mistake” as liberally as possible and go back to your student life to answer this question. Probably you can say, if I could go back to my student life, I would have studied Biology instead of Math. 


17. Why haven’t you got a job yet? 

This question will usually arise if it has been sometime since you finished your studies and are still in the market without a job. You can say that, I have been offered some tempting positions in the last few days but had to turn them down as I did not find them right for my candidature. You can follow it up with some examples. 


18. You do not have all the experience we need for this position ?

To answer this question, you again need to analyze the requirements of the role properly and match them to your candidature. If you meet most of the requirements, you can say that you have most of the qualities needed for this role and for the remaining you are always open to learning them. You can follow this up with an example from your last job where you learnt and did things that you didn’t know earlier. Stay confident while answering this question. 


19. Why do you want to quit your present job? 

The reasons for you to quit the present job could be numerous, may be you don’t get well along with your boss or your salary is too less but it is not good to make derogatory remarks about your present company in an interview. You can give a more practical answer like, my present company is not able to offer me further growth opportunities and I have a feeling that it is the time for me to grow up in hierarchy and learn further. 


20. Have you ever made a mistake at work? How did you rectify it? 

Everybody makes mistakes, there’s nothing wrong in admitting it. In the interview you can say that yes, there have been times when you have made mistakes and learnt from them. Whatever you could correct yourself, you did that and for the rest you went back to your senior and took his help to sort it out. 


21. What major problems did you face in your last role? 

The agenda of this question is to understand if

                You caused the problem

                 Could it have been avoided?

                Your attitude to solve it.

It is safer to mention a problem which was caused by an external party rather than the problems within internal parties. May be you can take an example of the problem caused by a customer, vendor. Discuss what you did to solve the problem. 


22. Where do you see yourself 5 years from now? 

By asking this question, the interviewer wants to see, how ambitious the candidate is. You can say that, 5 years down the line I would like to see myself in a responsible position where I can make important decisions in the favor of company and the company treats me as its asset. I am sure that this company can offer me growth opportunities like this. 


23. How do you feel about doing repetitive work? 

You can say that I understand that every job has an element of repetitive work but I enjoy fulfilling all the aspects of my job with equal enthusiasm and give them my 100%. 


24. How did you manage to attend this interview during your working hours?  

Everybody knows that you would not ask permission from your boss to appear for an interview. You can answer this question by simply saying that you have taken a off from the office to appear for this interview. 


25. Would you like to work in a team or on your own? 

The agenda behind this question is to understand if you are a team player or a solo performer. It might be risky to choose any one of them as the role for which they are considering you might need you to be a team player but the career progression which they might consider for you down a year’s time may need you to handle a more autonomous position. It is better to answer this question by saying that “I don’t have any such preference. I can comfortably handle both the situations, as the need arises.” Now back it up with examples where you successfully worked in a team and where you performed an autonomous role. 


26. If your boss was present here, what do you think he would say about you? 

This is again a question which can be answered in two ways. 

First way: If the situation is light, you can that say, “He would tell you that I am the diamond of his team and you should not let me go.” This needs to be accompanied by a right body language. Second way: If the discussion is proceeding in a serious manner, you can pick up a formal appraisal he gave you and say that I think he would repeat it here. 


27. Has your career grown as you had liked? 

The agenda behind this question is to understand if there had been times of dip in your career and if you lay the blame for them on others. There’s nothing to be ashamed of, if there have been short gap in your employment. You can justify it by giving a convincing reason. Look at your qualifications and social environment and relate your achievements to them, to answer this question. 


28. What would you do if your team ceased to perform? 

The agenda behind this question is to understand your management style. A good answer to this question could be, I will try to establish the reasons for non­performance of the team and try to eradicate them. 


29. Would you take up this job if we offered it to you? 

Again there are two ways to handle this question.

First Way: If you have built up a good rapport with the interviewer by now you can ask a more direct question, Are you offering it to me? (with a smile and right body language). If they say “Yes”, you can say that off course, based on what we have discussed till now I am enthusiastic in taking up this position. When would you be able to get me a written offer?

Second Way: Alternatively you can say, based on what we have discussed till now, I will be happy to take up this position but there are still certain things that need to be discussed.  


30. Your expected salary? 

Don’t jump at a figure when you are asked this question during the personal interview. Try to turn the ball back into the interviewer‘s court and ask him the type of salary the company offers for a position like this. Still, if you are required to answer this question, mention a range rather than talking about an exact figure but don’t keep the range too vast, you will be offered the one at the lower end. Probably you can say, I should be comfortable with something in the range of mid fifties. 


31. What will you do if you are offered a job with a salary higher than this? 

By asking this question the interviewer tries to analyze if the candidate will leave the job for a couple of thousand Rupees. Recruiting a candidate costs money to the company so they would like to hire somebody who has some loyalty towards the company. You can answer this question by saying that though you know the attraction of money every job offers but you would first try to analyze the growth opportunities with both the jobs. If your present company can offer you the desired growth with the industry trend, you would not switch. You will discuss the issue with your senior and ask his views on your growth in the present job and if you see that there is a potential to grow in the present job, you will stick otherwise you will politely inform him about your decision to move ahead in life. 


32. Do you want to ask us something about the company? 

When you are going for a job interview, go prepared. Try to find out the latest information about the company. When you are asked this question, you can ask interesting questions like the opportunities for you to grow in the company, the expansion plans of the company and the chances for you to grow there. If the company has been in news recently, you can ask questions related to that also.
