Hi Dalpati

Don't answer this with simple 'Yes'. It won't do. A smart answer could be like:'I've been enthusiastic about my work. I've generally been in jobs that I enjoy, so that makes putting the effort in quite easy'.

Hi Dalpati,

There goes a famous saying there are not shortcut to success so you have to say that yes, you enjoy hard work. provided the work you are doing meaningful and fulfilling to you.  

Also, the work you do, if you would receive regular feedback/review from your reporting manager you would be able to improve your quality of work and this ensure that hard work become smart work i.e. when you have to understand with proper communication skills.   

Also, you can ask the interviewer what exactly does he/she mean when they say "hard-work" based on their definition you can customize your answer and provide with a behavioral example.

Beware the interviewer might corner you by saying working late or working over the weekend and also working after office hours from home.

Here you need to address the situation by saying initially such experience would be mandatory no matter how overwhelming it might seem at first but with proper prioritizing of work and work allocation and work distribution, the situation can be easily contained.

The interviewer your like to observe through this question your sense of judgment when you are assigned any task and skills that you currently possess to complete any task that you would be assigned in future once you are on the job. 

Hope this answer is able to guide you for next time you are asked such a similar question.

Think, articulate your thoughts and present the same.
