Question 2 of 33
We put the safety of our employees first at AVX Corporation which includes extensive safety training for our new hires. Walk me through your current safety training and safety related education.
Professional Answers Preview
"I am formally trained in Fall Arrest, WHMIS as well as Confined Space. I have been an ESTS trainer as well. In addition to this experience, I have many hours of on-site safety training in my previous roles. I brought my current documents with me if you would like to make a copy. I am confident that my level of effort when it comes to safety will meet your high expectations at AVX Corporation."
"Because I am newer to the industry, I have not completed a lot of related training. I am CPR and First Aid certified. Could you tell me which safety training you would like to see me complete? I would be happy to get a head start."
Your safety related training may or may not be listed on your resume. Either way, be prepared to discuss your training in greater detail. This includes any coursework, certifications, or informal on-the-job learning. Perhaps you have also led a safety course or trained new employees on safety protocols. If you have particular safety tickets or certifications you can bring those with you to the interview. There is a good chance that AVX Corporation will want a scan for your employee file. Be sure to acknowledge the safety standards at AVX Corporation as well.

Question 3 of 33
At AVX Corporation we offer a range of equipment and services. How familiar are you with our business?
Professional Answers Preview
"I have read up on AVX Corporation quite extensively since being invited to interview with you. From my understanding, the bulk of your business comes from A, and B. I read the press release posted to your blog last month and see that you are opening a new location in XYZ. Congratulations on that growth! I am very excited to join an organization as successful and progressive as yours."
"I've had an eye on AVX Corporation for quite some time and have worked for one of your competitors in the past. I am familiar with your product line and do know that your best selling equipment includes A, and B. Is there anything in particular that you would like to share with me about AVX Corporation, today?"
It is very important that you research AVX Corporation before you go into your interview so that you have a strong understanding of the range of equipment and services offered, as well as their business strategy. You should have a strong idea of the company vision as well as their most recent wins. All of this information can be found on the AVX Corporation website by reviewing their 'news' or 'about us' sections. Google search for any recent blog posts, press releases, etc.

Question 4 of 33
The electrical equipment industry is vast. What area do you consider your specialty and why will your specialty help us at AVX Corporation?
Professional Answers Preview
"I have approximately 12 years experience in the electrical equipment industry with 6 of those years being on equipment nearly identical to what you have in place at AVX Corporation. In your job posting you requested candidates with exposure to A, B, and C. In my current role I am considered the subject matter expert with A, and C. My understanding of B can be classified as intermediate level. If hired, my training time would be minimal compared to someone with less comprehensive experience within A, B, and C."
"I consider my specialty to be in A, and B. With that said, I do have a wide range of knowledge in other electrical equipment and services. Is there a particular specialty that you are hoping to highlight in your next hire?"
If you have a particular strength in your skills toolbox then this is a great time to highlight those. It can be tough to brag about your skills but the way you answer this question will likely be what sets you apart from the other candidates interviewing for this position. If AVX Corporation highlights any particular skills in their job posting / job description, it is a great idea to draw on those keywords as reference when you are answering this question.
