Is there a Stack Exchange site for both technical and behavioural interview questions? Where I could ask questions about, for example:

  • Sample questions and solutions, experiences, or seeking advice for interviews
  • A place where I could ask interview questions and what the best way to answer it (not just a correct way or the most efficient).
  • What to do in a certain situation such as negotiation, unfair interviews, etc.
  • Experiences interviewing at so-and-so company.

    In general, questions like this are typically either too broad (can I haz list of questions please?) or too localized (how do I answer this interview question?).

    As in a list of questions people have been asked, with suggested answers? You might be able to find individual questions here and there (example), but they have to be carefully worded to get around the "primarily opinion-based" or "too broad" rules.

To directly answer your question, no, there isn't really a single site where you can ask any question you would find in any interview. It depends on the question - there are a lot of different things that can be covered in an interview, and many of them will be inherently specific to your particular vocation.

As mentioned in the question comments, The Workplace might be the best candidate for general questions ("What are your weaknesses", "Where do you see yourself in five years"), although you'll still need to make sure that you have a real, answerable question.

For software developers, and for questions that are not directly about code but that are still software-related, the Software Engineering Stack Exchange does allow some interview questions, although again you'll want to make sure it meets their requirements as they seem to get a lot of poor examples. Stack Overflow would likely be the best candidate for code-based questions, or maybe Code Review if you just want to assess what you came up with.

    Interview questions don't fare well on Stack Overflow. We expect questions to be practical and answerable, not the "how many jellybeans can fit into a bus" variety.

  • @Robert Harvey: It says for code-based questions.

    since the time this was posted, Programmers became stricter in that regard, see Why do interview questions make poor Programmers.SE questions? Consider editing to account for that

    I've already got a link to that very page - under 'get a lot of poor examples'

You can take a look at The Workplace where they have an interview tag and a few good interview posts.

Make sure your post fits the help center's guidelines before posting.
