question
Who has inspired you in your life and why?
Anonymous Answer

The person who has inspired me in my life is my grandma. She passed away due to cancer, and during her time of going through chemo, she encouraged me to connect with people as well as being compassionate because we can build each other's self-esteem as well as reinforce the sense of identity.

Rachelle's Answer

This is a beautiful response, and it seems your grandma was a very wise woman. Well said.

question
How would you respond if a child became physically aggressive with you?
Anonymous Answer

I will act quickly and calmly speak and explain to him to protect me and protect him from doing harm.

Rachelle's Answer

It's important to protect the student, yourself, and the other students. This is a good point. I have reworded for clarity.

"If a child became physically aggressive with me, I would act quickly, remove them from the presence of other children, and try to calm them down by speaking evenly and with authority. I must defuse any situation so that the child, other children, and myself are not harmed."

question
Anonymous Answer

I am an extremely dedicated employee. At my current position, I will pull the hours needed to complete a task with no questions asked. I help lead our team and am usually the person someone will go to to help solve their issue. I take personal pride in a project being successful and not harping on how we got there or who did what, instead, focusing on the fact that we did get there. I not only have the career background for this position but also have the experience as an end user with your software. I know how it is on both sides and can use my experience to help our end users.

Rachelle's Answer

Fantastic! Your response makes me want to hire you!

question
Describe your teaching style.
Anonymous Answer

I have grown into an analytical teacher. Learning how to align learning targets with states standards is benefiting my ability to understand which lessons I need to revisit for my students. And in turn, this information allows me to build a lesson with more creative energy. For example, if I notice my students are weaker in a particular standard than I know my original method is not working. So, I need to think outside the box and gather more strategies from new sources.

Rachelle's Answer

You know your teaching style well, and you sound very confident in your approach. Excellent answer!

In my current role, I am responsible for creating a weekly schedule. I didn't have any data regarding our busiest times of the week so I had to guess and still remain under staffing budget but at the same time avoid understaffing. I used my logic and past experience at other pharmacies to make decisions on staff scheduling.

Rachelle's Answer

I reworded this just a touch, to help with the flow. Otherwise, good response.

"In my current role, I am responsible for creating the weekly schedule. I don't have access to data regarding our busiest times of the week, so I had to figure out the schedule to ensure I remained under the staffing budget, while at the same time having enough coverage. I used my logic and experience at other pharmacies to make decisions on staff scheduling."

question
Anonymous Answer

American Airlines is my dream airline, they are the biggest and the best, and I've always believed in shooting for the stars. I also love their cultural diversity and treating others with respect, but what is near and dear to my heart is their dedication to the American Airlines cadet program that encourages young girls and boys in the scouts to pursue pilot careers. Overall I love that AA is on the cutting edge of technology because great is what I'm going for!

Rachelle's Answer

Fantastic response! Any interviewer should appreciate your energy. Your answer also shows the depth of research you have committed to.
