A very common interview question and a fairly easy one to answer. There is only one answer of course which is yes as anyone who is unable to work under pressure is unlikely to get offered a job in any situation or profession. You can perhaps give specific examples of times when you have needed to work under pressure or give a general response with details of types of scenarios you face or have faced on a regular basis which involved working under pressure. The better option is to keep the answer fairly brief, perhaps make a general reference to the type of work you have undertaken and that it does involve a certain degree of pressure and if necessary or if asked to clarify give a specific example.
