OK, there’s one obvious answer to this question (which reportedly has been posed by Medtronics in the past): “I wouldn’t be applying for this job if I thought I would hate any of it.” But that’s a little saccharine, isn’t it? A variant on that theme might be “All jobs are bound to have their more tedious moments, but I wouldn’t anticipate this role having many of them.”
If you’re feeling a little more aggressive, this could be the opportunity to introduce your own questions into the mix. “Nothing I’ve heard about the role so far suggests I would hate anything. Are there other aspects of the position we haven’t discussed yet?”
How would you answer the question?
