I recently had a phone interview for a co-op position at a large
company. I liked the questions that both interviewers asked. Here
are the questions I can think of right now:

1. If you had to hold one technical writing position for the rest of
your life, what would you be doing (online help, user manuals, etc.)?
2. What sources did you implement in creating your manual (a writing
sample that I sent them)? When I mentioned Weiss and Alred, they
continued to ask me what I liked and disliked about each of the texts
that I used.
3. What do you think/know about usability testing?
4. Can you work on numerous projects at once?
5. How did you go about taking your manual from paper to online

I know most of these are not like the ones that others have posted.
But, I was curious as to whether these questions are at all familiar
in most TW interviews. My current boss didn't really know what he
needed, so he didn't ask many questions (and he knew I was in the TW
program at the university).
