Question 2 of 28
Describe your typical work week.
Professional Answers Preview
"I like to take time to prepare for the week by organizing my schedule every Monday morning. I make sure all of my meetings are marked on my calendar and set reminders about important deadlines. I understand that changes can interrupt my daily flow, and I am able to adapt and stay calm when those shifts occur throughout the week. I am efficient, getting my work done within 40 hours each week. I have also proven myself to be flexible to stay late when I need to finish a project or if one of my co-workers needs assistance."
"My typical work week is always non-typical! My days range from making client phone calls, site visits, and answering questions and concerns via email. Client management is the key to what I do."
Think about your typical day-to-day in your current or most recent role. Reflect on how your work ethic helped you to stay organized and tackle difficult projects. Connect your past experiences to what you expect to experience while working for Annies Homegrown.

Question 5 of 28
What is your greatest weakness?
Professional Answers Preview
"I believe I could improve on some technical skills including Excel and PowerPoint. Currently I am at a beginner to intermediate level; however, I would be more comfortable at an advanced level. I have enrolled myself in an evening/weekend workshop for the next six weeks. We will see how stellar my skills are after that course!"
