Barco Interview Questions


  1. What do you think our biggest business challenge is at Barco, and how will you help?
    • The interviewer would like to see that you have more to offer than just a warm body in a seat! What is this particular company's biggest challenge, and how do you think that you can assist? This question requires research on Barco, Inc., their business goals, and the competitive landscape.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "After speaking with you further about Barco, Inc., and this role, I believe that the biggest challenge this company has faced is in hiring the right talent. I have a strong background in recruitment as well as management and do feel that I can assist with this hurdle. Having the right team players is imperative to a company's success and, if we can tackle that, I see great things happening."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "When I applied to Barco, Inc. I knew exactly which gaps I would be able to help fill. I want to assist with refreshing your sales strategy. I would also like to help train your new hires to make a stronger impact on your clients."


  1. If you are hired at Barco you may become privy to trade secrets and confidential information. Are you willing to sign a non-disclosure agreement?
    • The interviewer would like to know that you are willing to comply with their non-disclosure requirements before you start working for Barco, Inc..

      Your willingness to sign a non-disclosure agreement will tell the interviewer that you are not looking for a short-term employment situation where you can be frivolous with the knowledge that you gain. If you are not comfortable agreeing to sign a non-disclosure immediately, simply state your openness to reviewing the agreement.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "Yes, I am willing to take a look at your non-disclosure agreement. Most agreements are very reasonable and since I plan to work for Barco, Inc. long-term - this is not a concern for me."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "I agree that non-disclosures are important in most industries and I am willing to sign one should I be hired at Barco, Inc."


  1. We value honesty at Barco. Do you think honesty is always the best policy?
    • Is honesty always the best policy? Talk to the interviewer about your thoughts on honesty in the workplace.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "Sometimes full disclosure can damage someone's self-esteem. In reality, honesty isn't always best expressed in full. I believe it can be self-indulgent based on the person's intention. In those instances, honesty isn't always the best policy."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "I do think that it's best to be completely honest in as many situations as possible. I understand there are some times when telling the full truth will not help either party but, for the most part, I do agree that honesty is the best policy."


  1. We have multiple avenues for career growth. Where would you like to see your career with Barco take you?
    • Interviewing, hiring, and onboarding is an expensive and time-consuming process for Barco, Inc.. Since there are likely many career opportunities available to you at Barco, Inc., be prepared to discuss how you would like to see your career grow. This shows the interviewer that you are engaged in this process and interested in becoming a long-term fixture in their organization.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "I was browsing your online job board to see what types of growth opportunities were available with Barco, Inc.. One role that stood out to me was the IT Department Manager position. It seemed that this could be a very natural step in my career once I have grown with you for a couple of years. I'd like to learn more about what I can do to prepare myself for a role like that."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "In my current position, I have had my sights set on the senior leadership position in my department. If I were to join Barco, Inc., my goal would be the same. I plan to take a few leadership workshops in the coming months to help get me there."


  1. Tell me about a project you worked on where a conventional approach was not suitable.
    • How have you implemented creativity in the workplace when a conventional approach was not suitable? Display for the hiring manager how you can think outside of the box when necessary.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "In 2009 our economy suffered, and a lot of businesses were struggling to keep their doors open. At that time, a conventional approach was to take out additional ads on the radio or TV. Social media was starting to become a major advertising outlet - and it was free. I launched a social media campaign that was very successful. We were able to generate new and repeat business while coming in under our advertising budget."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "I rarely take a conventional approach when it comes to my work. Conventional is often predictable and predictable does not equal great sales numbers."


  1. Do you think it is possible to be a good team member, yet disagree with the leader?
    • The interviewer wants to know that you can be diplomatic in the workplace, even when you may not agree with your leader.

      Show the interviewer that it is possible for you to be a good team member, yet disagree with the leader from time to time. Explain that you believe everyone is entitled to their own professional opinion, yet capable of maintaining respect for each other at the same time.

      Show that even if you disagree with the final decision they make, you support the direction the team is heading.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "I think that it is possible to be a great team member, even when disagreeing with the leader. It's all in how you maintain respect for each other despite the difference in opinion."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "I do try my best to be a great team member, regardless of whether or not I agree with the leader. With that said, it's important to me that I see eye to eye with my leader."


  1. Workplace culture is important to us at Barco. What type of work environment do you dislike working in?
    • Are you pretty flexible in your ability to work in most environments? Have you experienced a position where the atmosphere wasn't conducive to your productivity? Be sure to know the type of environment that is offered by Barco, Inc., before the interview.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "I can be productive in most work environments, so long as the mentality is positive and teamwork is encouraged. I cannot work in an environment that feels negative or toxic."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "Rather than focusing on the negative, try spinning your answer into a positive focus: "I do best in a supportive environment where there is room to grow, the ability to ask questions, and healthy co-worker relationships."
