There is a rule in an interview that doesn’t bad mouth about your previous or current employer. No matter how much you dislike your current job or employer and expressing in front of the interviewer is a bad job-seeking behavior. The logic is clear that the current employers assume you’ll say the same about them in future. So, get ready to answer the questions about your current role and previous roles also.
Here are the questions to answer about your current /previous job:
