Boeing Interview Questions

  1. 1.

    How would you communicate with someone who has a different cultural background?

      Show that you are a team player by demonstrating how you have gone above and beyond to support other team members who are different from you. Being perceptive and sensitive to others is critical! Explain that you are accustomed to working in diverse environments and that you can quickly adapt to any different situation in which you are placed.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I have worked with people from all backgrounds and personalities. Whenever I join a new team, I make a point to get to know each person and find ways we can connect. I made a point to help one our new hires feel welcomed by taking them to lunch and letting them know that I am available if they have any questions. I wanted to help make the transition of moving from Saudi Arabia and working at a new place as smooth as possible."

Its always to go for a meal with people from different cultures, particularly since a lot of different cultures are based around food and people feel more comfortable and open up when they around food from home,"

      Kristine's Answer

      Great response! It's clear you have experience working with diverse cultures, and you thrive in building relationships with people from various cultures. I reworded your answer in places to help with clarity.

      "I have worked in a few different countries and developed good work relationships with people from different cultures. In Germany, I worked with French, German, Spanish, and Indian co-workers, as well as with American and Japanese co-workers for remote support. I like to take time to get to know people and where they are from, and I am interested in traveling and finding out about other countries and cultures. I always go out for a meal with people from different cultures, particularly since a lot of different cultures are based around food, and people feel more comfortable. They open up when they are enjoying food from their home countries."

      "I respect people coming from different cultures. I do this by listening carefully and speaking clearly to avoid any miscommunication."

      Mary's Answer

      I altered some of the wording in your response. I don’t want to imply that you speak clearly and the other person does not (which is not your intent).

      "I respect people of all cultures and backgrounds. When communicating with someone of a different cultural background, I listen carefully and intently. In return, I try to clearly convey my response to ensure I am adequately handling their needs."
