What is your definition of hard work?

• It’s consistency, doing whatever it takes for you and your team to achieve their goals.

Good! You may want to expand by thinking about what the interviewer is seeking by asking the question. Is he/she trying to get a sense of your capacity? How can you demonstrate it?

Tell me about a time when you improved communication between yourself and a co-worker or client.

In my last job, there was a vendor who was not answering my e-mails in a timely fashion, so I decided to schedule weekly meetings to update each other and discuss any issues in the invoices.

question
Anonymous Answer

I am a very frequent user of Facebook marketplace applications. Usually, whenever I had to sell any furniture I post ads in these applications. Similarly, I buy a lot of stuff using this application too. However, many times when I am looking for a particular item, I am not able to see the best ad services nearby me. Usually, good options appear after a week or so after I am looking for a particular item. In my opinion, FB can bring some more real-time ad services to its users.

Cindy's Answer

Great example. You're demonstrating familiarity with the company's product while being responsive to the question.

question
Tell me about a time when you went above and beyond for customer service.
Anonymous Answer

When I was working as a Teller at a bank we had a customer come through the drive-through to get cash out of his account. The customer, unfortunately, did not have his wallet on him meaning he didn't have his debit card or driver's license. Since I was not able to verify his identity I could not access his account to take cash out. The customer was frustrated but understanding. I was able to tell him about mobile banking as he did have his smartphone with him. He was happy to learn about the feature. Since it was a slow time at work and there were enough tellers I was able to step away with the customer to the atm and physically walk him through how to use the cardless atm feature on his phone. in the end, he was very happy to learn how to use the new service and he'll be able to use it in the feature.

Cindy's Answer

This is a wonderful example, and truly above and beyond. It also reflects your adherence to important policies, which will be meaningful to the interviewer. Good work.
