8x8 Interview Questions

29 8x8 Interview Questions
Question 1 of 29
Work volumes can become very high at 8x8. How do you handle a larger than average workload?
How to Answer
The interviewer wants to be assured that you can handle the workload required of you in this position and that you will not become overwhelmed if/when workloads unexpectedly increase. When workloads increase, stress levels do too. How do you react?

Answer Example
"When I have a large workload on my plate, I do not stress over the tasks that are in front of me. Rather, I make a simple plan of which tasks are a high priority and which tasks are a lower priority. The higher priority tasks, I complete first. Through this system, I can focus on my tasks individually, rather than stressing out about the multitude of tasks ahead of me. I also love the satisfaction of being able to cross things off my list!"
Answer Example
"Whenever I feel overwhelmed, I try to take a few deep breaths, review my list of tasks, and concentrate first on those that are of highest strategic priority to the organization - in other words, the tasks most likely to positively affect the company's bottom line. If I can put my highest expenditure of resources there, I'm more likely to make a positive impact on the organization overall."

Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Every hiring manager wants to know how to keep you best motivated and excited about the job. Talk to the interviewer about what excites you and keeps you happy at work.

Answer Example
"I have a healthy competitive edge, even if its a personal competition. For me, I am excited and motivated by winning, whether that be winning over a new client, exceeding my KPIs or being recognized for a job well done. I am also motivated and energized by a strong team that supports and challenges one another."
Answer Example
"I get excited when new challenges are presented in the workplace. This could include a new program, a new customer initiative, a sales contest, or even the training of a new employee. A fresh problem to solve or a fresh obstacle to conquer is highly motivating and exciting for me."

Question 3 of 29
When planning, how often do you create alternative scenarios to help you adjust to changing situations?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Being able to problem solve and think outside the box when it comes to changing situations is a very valuable skill set. Talk to the interviewer about your ability to create a variety of potential scenarios.

Answer Example
"I feel that it is very important to create alternative scenarios in all situations. One cannot guess what will happen in the end, so it is smart to be prepared for all possible outcomes. I try always to create 'what-ifs' because I know that plans change and fail. Plan B - or C or D - is always ready to go."
Answer Example
"I love having contingency plans. It's important for my team to understand that ideally we are going to do X, but if that fails, we need to be ready to make sure Y happens. It takes out the uncertainty at the moment and better prepares everyone to adapt if a problem should arise."

Question 4 of 29
When have you shown a willingness to learn a new method or new approach to solving a problem?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
It is a great skill to have when you can approach a problem in a new way. Discuss with the interviewer your ability to approach a problem using new methods.

Answer Example
"When our company came under new management last year, many new methods and policies were implemented. As a result, I was able to learn many new approaches to our challenges in sales and customer management. Ultimately, they were very effective, and I enjoyed the process of taking a different approach and trying something innovative."
Answer Example
"Our company switched to an SAP system last year that I was not familiar with. I enrolled myself in a 4-week evening course at our local community college so that I could quickly learn the system without it affecting my performance at work. It helped a great deal, and my employers were impressed with my willingness to learn. In addition, I was able to share with colleagues new ways to employ the system to solve some of their day-to-day business challenges."

Question 5 of 29
8x8 encourages continued education. Tell me about a time when you took on a new course to study in order to improve your own work performance.
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Once you are in your career, it certainly doesn't mean that you need to stop learning. There are many job-related courses available. Talk to the interviewer about the last time you took advantage of these available courses. Discuss your interest in continuing your education even after joining 8x8.

Answer Example
"I am a huge proponent of professional development and continuing education. We have to stay current in our industry in order to keep up with the fast pace of change and innovation. Our company recently offered the Sandler Sales program to anyone in the company who was interested. I took this workshop and really enjoyed it - plus, my sales increased by 23 percent that year."
Answer Example
"Last year, I worked toward my Project Manager certification while working full time. That experience alone greatly increased my multitasking skills, and I'm confident that the PM certification is a strong addition to my already existing management skill set. I believe strongly that it's important for employees to seek training and professional development opportunities in order to make sure they're not only competitive, but also adding the best possible value to their organizations."

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
