Default Interview questions

I am working part time in my father's shop as a counter staff and receive monthly salary. I am currently looking for full time jobs and should I say that I am receiving monthly salary from working part time to the interviewer? Or no? How do I say it?

Just say you were helping out in the family business and you were paid a token sum. No need mention small shop or your actualy monthly salary. How old are you by the way and what job are you looking for. These circumstances may change your answers.

I am 25 and looking for hr/ recruitment full time jobs. When interviewer asks for last drawn salary? Obv I cant lie about that because they would screen my info right? Or do generally people hide about having side jobs and have monthly salary?

Your circumstances are abit different, because you work for your family previously. Just say you were working and the work includes some components of HR (smoke them with your HR knowledge), money paid under table, hence unable to show payslips.

A little white lie wouldnt hurt and hirer company HR would not go to those lengths to ask your family to produce statement of accounts to pay you.

I think you should say that you help your father in the family business. This information will be enough. I think for the interviewer will be much more important your skills and your preparation for the job. Therefore, I advise you to prepare very carefully for the interview, because in such a difficult time, I am sure there will be many interested people like you in this work. I can advise you to read this article https://slidepeak.com/blog/how-to-become-a-brilliant-speaker. This will help you learn secrets that will help you get hired.
