“What irritates you about co-workers?”
Your co-workers are the people that you are going to interact with on a regular basis if you get hired for the job. When spending that much time with someone, it is only natural that you will find things that irritate you about them.

For example: “I enjoy working with all kinds of people because I believe everyone has a unique set of skills and experiences to bring to the table!”
