Question 4 of 26
At Abbott-Interfast Corporation our customers, vendors, manufacturers, and wholesalers are all important to us. How do you keep a healthy balance to ensure that everyone is happy?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Balancing the needs of multiple parties can be a challenge. Discuss with the interviewer how you ensure that everyone involved in a project is feeling happy and listened to. Provide some information in regards to how your current position requires the same of you.

Answer Example
"In my current position I am tasked with anticipating the needs of our customers based on last years' trends. This approach means ensuring that our vendors keep us stocked - and at the price that our customers have come to expect. I find that the best way to keep a balance of satisfaction is by always being honest. When all parties maintain a healthy and realistic expectation, projects seem to run smoother."
Answer Example
"It certainly can be a juggling act to keep customers, vendors, manufacturers, and wholesalers happy...all at the same time! I know that situations come up and you cannot make all parties happy at the same time. With that said, my relationship with my customers always come first. I am kind and patient with our manufacturers and wholesalers because we need them too, but I am always clear with them on our project needs and deadlines."

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.
