I think job is longterm and so is family. U spend so much time with everyone there so it's your second family. Although u may have favorite person in it you still have to get along with everyone as its just part of life. Make more friends and enjoy with them.

I prefer an environment that is open, welcoming, spirit of teamwork and lively. There are going to be days when you just don't "feel" like it, but when you know you have a team around you that can help you push through it makes the day go by smoother and is ultimately beneficial to patients/families.

The employer is asking this to try and figure out if you're going to enjoy working in their work environment. Assuming you would want to work in their facility (you chose to interview), describe a setting similar to where you'd in the role, and say why you enjoy that environment. It's okay to say you like many types of environments as well, as that shows you're an adaptable worker/person.
