Assuming you mean labourer? or do you mean manual labour jobs like bricklayer etc?  I have never heard of a labour job!
Still if you do mean labourer then again, this is a good career choice especially for those who love this kind of work, or working with your hands

I also assumed that this was labourer (some sort of manual labour). This is usually popular with people who have few academic qualifications, or have acquired vocational qualifications in whichever kind of labour they want to go into.

When being interviewed for labouring positions, it's more about having the drive and motivation to work long hours and work hard. You might be asked to give examples of when you were able to finish a task and work hard.

Again on the assumption this means a post in manual labour. Interview questions will be hugely varied depending on the field you are being interviewed. However, there are recurring themes throughout this industry. When conducting the interview, your interviewer will be looking to see if you posses certain traits. The interviewer will be looking for you to be enthusiastic, hard working, reliable, honest and tenacious. If you don’t have experience on your side it can be assumed you are coming in to the interview on the back of, or as part of an apprenticeship. Therefore, you will be given some leeway on technical expertise but will be expected to show a bit more “hunger” for the job compared to those who have been in the business for a number of years. 

Of course you will be asked questions relevant to your specific trade but the level of the answer will depend on the position being applied for. This side of your knowledge should have been built up during any training courses you have completed but you should still take time to practice delivering your answer on what you can or have done. Many people fully understand what they have been taught but struggle to communicate the idea effectively. By practising, either to a friend or even a mirror, you will come across as more confident in your abilities. To back up your self confidence, which is sometimes an under estimated characteristic within the trades, you must press home your enthusiasm for the job. By showing the interviewer that you genuinely enjoy your work will make you a more attractive prospect to train, as you will appear more likely to stay the course and give use to the company that will employ you.

Most manual labour jobs are by definition, physically demanding. It is therefore important that the interviewer knows that your strengths are your determination and a strong work ethic to go alongside your technical abilities.
