What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"How you describe yourself? What are three of your strengths? What is one of your weaknesses? Name a time when you have failed. This interview was also very pleasant though- very conversational! " Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?
