"My coworkers and I worked together to resolve a client situation. They had an issue my presentation that revealed some issues with their production process. I shared the problem with my coworkers for support. They helped me back up my research with more facts and information to provide for my client. Together we were able to gather additional statistics and documents to assist my client."

"At my last company, the attitude of my team towards the concept of continuous improvement was poor. In a department of 40 people, only four people were actively involved in any improvement work. There had been attempts to introduce the 5S method of continuous improvement, but they failed. My task was to increase involvement in continuous improvement from 10% to 100%. The action that I took was to work with an influential team member on a novel way of introducing 5S. This team member and I then presented the technique to the other team members in a humorous and fun way, and we managed to persuade the other members of the team that it was not just about housekeeping. By doing this, we were able to increase participation from 10% to 100%, which resulted in significant time savings and improved workplace organization."
Lauren's Answer
This is a fantastic response! The example you gave (again) provided measurable results and the method with which you were able to be successful. I made minor grammar and sentence structure edits. Be prepared to give your interviewer specific examples of the “fun and humorous” techniques that aided your efforts with the staff. This example demonstrates your ability to lead and think outside the box to get the job done. Again, great example!
"At my most recent employer, I was tasked with boosting quality improvement department-wide. At the time, the vast majority of the staff group (40 individuals) struggled with continuous improvement. I knew a modality such as “5S” would be effective, but it was a matter of delivering the information in a way that aided the staff’s daily work rather than viewed as an added task. I partnered with an influential team member to present the 5S technique in a fun and humorous way, thus gaining the attention and buy-in of the group. As a result, continuous improvement increased from 10% to 100%. Leadership and out-of-box thinking created the desired outcome."

"I was tasked with updating a green sheet for our shop to minimize the work not related to the shop that is used in the field, such as working from heights, scaffolding, etc. It was my first time doing this, so I used my shop colleagues as resources and asked for their opinions to make the green sheet more user-friendly for them. I did my walkthrough of the shop and used my judgment on what was necessary to be on the green sheet. Then, after I sat down with my shop colleagues, I took their opinions as well. They had a few more things they believed were not necessary for the shop green sheet, and I finished it up and sent to my boss for implementation. He felt that it was very well done and we put it into process. The shop employees are much happier with less paperwork, and I had a better understanding of what we did in the shop. We worked together to complete an objective that we both wanted to be changed and implemented."
Rachelle's Answer
It sounds like you did an excellent job taking everyone's needs into account for the creation of this green sheet. This is a great example!

What do you know about our company?
Boeing Co. is a competitive company that only hires those who take the job seriously. One way you can show you're serious about working there is through doing your research before the interview. Boeing is America's most significant manufacturing exporter. Take some time to learn more about their mission, values and their culture. You can find out what employees are saying about them through searching glassdoor.com and searching for articles online. These efforts matter to Boeing. Explain how they matter to you too!

Rachelle's Answer
"I am aware that Boeing is a highly competitive organization yet one that takes giving back very seriously. Boeing recently donated $6 million dollars in grants to support over 50 organizations that serve communities in Washington. This fact stood out to me as I am seeking to join an organization that values giving back to the communities that support them."
Anonymous Answer
"Boeing demonstrates innovation by being the leader in developing commercial planes, defense, and security systems. I saw a quote on the company website that read, “Do the right thing, every time. No exceptions.” That speaks volumes to the level of conduct Boeing represents. That is a company I want to be associated with and a representative."
Rachelle's Answer
Fantastic response! You have obviously done your homework on Boeing. The interviewer will greatly appreciate the effort.

"I went on your company's website, and I could see that you are a very active supporter of the environment. Your customers will receive your products, and you are secure financially."
Lauren's Answer
This is a great start! Researching your interviewer’s company is key, but you can also use it as an opportunity to highlight other skills.
"When looking for new employment opportunities, I research companies who have a positive mission, value, and cultural fit. From my research of Boeing Co. online, I was struck by the active and supportive environment. I thrive best in work environments that have a team atmosphere, and have quality products to back superior customer service. A large, fiscally sound company such as Boeing is highly appealing as well."

How do you manage stress?
Keep it simple! You don't have to explain about your vegan diet and your weekly yoga schedule. Boeing is more interested in hearing that you have managed yourself and supported others through stressful situations and that you have learned to be proactive so that the stress doesn't get to you.

Rachelle's Answer
"I've learned to stick to my routine and ensure that my calendar is always up to date. I've found that simple acts of scheduling like this make all the difference in my productivity and my attitude by the time I get to work. I found out my coworker was terminated one day and it meant that I would need to take over her job while we interviewed other people to fill the position. It was stressful, but I stayed focused and took extra care in my scheduling so that I didn't get sick or overwhelmed."
Anonymous Answer
"I believe I manage stress pretty well. I try to stay focused on my tasks at hand and follow a schedule that fits my activity and drive. I know a few times where stress has come in the workplace for me. I was informed that the payroll administrator was getting a new job, and I would be taking on her work as well as my Health and Safety position. I scheduled the days that were necessities for each job and informed my now two bosses how I would manage them both. It was stressful at first, but I found my stride and got in a rhythm."
Rachelle's Answer
Good example of how you handle current stress levels.

"I manage stress by allocating time in my diary to look at the issues involved. I then adopt a problem-solving approach to the problems involved. I then produce an action plan for reducing my stress. This is how I manage stress."
Lauren's Answer
This is a great response. Your example demonstrates a methodical way you approve challenges. You can carry this example onto your work approach so the interviewer gets to know your personal work style.
"When facing stressors, I use a journal as a resource. At the end of a stressful day, I will write all of the issues out in order to examine, reflect, and problem-solve. Processing ways I can reduce the stress helps me feel proactive versus reactive. I am very much a problem-solver, and I carry this outlook with my personal and professional life."

"I have received the job description, and I am confident that my unique skills are an excellent match for the role. That is why I am qualified for this role."
Lauren's Answer
Good start. I would be more specific to ensure the interviewer knows you are a strong candidate. Think back to all of your previous roles and what knowledge and skill sets would be the most transferable.
"I am highly qualified for this role because I have numerous transferable skills from (put number of years in the industry here) X years in this industry. (These are all examples, but I would use the job description to be specific). I have excellent communication skills; I pride myself on building rapport with customers and maintaining positive relationships with team members. I love being in a leadership role and have a lot to offer with staff team training and continued education. If given the opportunity, I would like to share my unique skills with Boeing."

Tell me about a time when someone gave you difficult feedback. How did you handle it?
It can be hard to know how to respond when your manager tells you about ways you need to improve, primarily when you are working so hard already! Don't let this question catch you off guard! You want the interviewer at Boeing to know that you take feedback constructively and that you don't take this sort of thing personally. Discuss how you accepted the input and what you did to implement the information to improve.

Rachelle's Answer
"My manager told me, earlier in my career, that I needed to pay closer attention to detail when she noticed some mistakes in my paperwork. I am meticulous about staying organized and double checking my work, so I was a little surprised at first. I took a deep breath and let my manager know that I would have a peer review the documents before I submitted them and that I would take extra steps to make sure it didn't happen again. I now use a couple of programs and apps to ensure my work is triple checked before I submit it."
Anonymous Answer
"I handled the problematic feedback by listening carefully to what was said. I then took the time to review the points raised and put in an action plan to improve my performance."
Lauren's Answer
Collaboration versus isolation is a key message you can drive home with your response.
"When I have received difficult feedback, I use it as an opportunity to collaborate with the person reviewing my performance. Creating an action plan helps my problem-solving nature and, together, my manager and I have a working document to visualize my progress and remain accountable."
Was this answer helpful? Yes or No
Anonymous Answer
"I have always valued feedback and believe it is the only way to improve yourself. I tend to listen and ask advice on how to improve the situation. On the rare occasion, this has happened, I have appreciated the other person's honesty and valued the opportunity to have a conversation about it and get it addressed."
Rachelle's Answer
It sounds as though you readily accept feedback and quickly implement improvements. Try to give a specific example of a time when you faced this situation.
