1.

If you were given a choice, which work related task would you leave for last? Why?

Often times we will leave the tasks that we don't like for last in an act of procrastination. Other times, we will mindfully leave a task for last because we feel that it makes the most sense. Help the interviewer to determine which personality type you are by answering this question clearly.

Rachelle's Answer #1

"If I were given a choice, I would leave my documentation tasks for last. I say this because I like to spend my time selling and hitting targets so anything to do with documentation during business hours - I feel takes away from my business development tasks. I do understand the importance of it, though."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"I do not believe in procrastination so I tend to take on the most challenging aspects of a project first, and then work my way into the easier, less time-consuming portions of my work. Especially in the field of human resources, procrastination can be very problematic."

2.

What do you know about the company culture at Daimler Group Services Berlin?

Company culture and fit is a very important factor when considering a career move. Assure the interviewer that you have put thought, research, and consideration into how the company culture will work for you.

Rachelle's Answer #1

"I have researched your company through your social media channels, and on glassdoor.com. Your employees have really great things to say and overall it seems that you have fun while you work. I am looking forward to joining an organization, like yours, that is upbeat and thoughtful with an eye on helping the community at the same time."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"I have researched your organization a great deal and see that you recently earned the 'XYZ Award' for industry innovation. You had a lot of competition when it comes to winning this award so it tells me that your team is incredibly dedicated and focused."

3.

You will be required to present to large teams at Daimler Group Services Berlin. Tell me about your experiences giving presentations in front of large groups.

Public speaking can be intimidating so assure the interviewer that you are capable of communicating well in front of large groups. Have you taken any courses or training in public speaking? Perhaps you have so much experience that it comes second nature. Assure the interviewer that you are capable of giving presentations.

Rachelle's Answer #1

"In my past 2 roles I have been responsible for regularly presenting to my team of 43 staff as well as to our entire warehouse team of over 200. I have taken a couple of Toastmasters sessions which helped a great deal. I am a confident public speaker."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"Although I do not bring experience in giving presentations to large groups, it is something that I would be comfortable with doing. I am confident and do have some training in public speaking from my days in University."

4.

Why do you think that you are a successful leader? Talk to the interviewer about the variety of things that you think have lead you to your success.

Do you have any questions for me about working for Daimler Group Services Berlin?

It's always a great idea to have questions ready for the interviewer. Review the company website and other online resources to ensure the questions you are asking are not mundane, or redundant. The last thing an interviewer wants to hear is a list of questions you could have found the answers to from simply watching a video on their company site!

Here are some sample questions:

- When would you like to have this position filled?
- How long has this role been vacant?
- Is this a replacement search or a newly created role?
- What is your favorite part about working here?
- What is the company's primary goal for this position in the next 12 months?
- Is there anything from my background and experience that I can clarify for you?
- What do you see as the biggest change in this industry over the past 3 years?
- Is there any reason why you would not hire me?

Rachelle's Answer

"Thank you for asking - I do have a few questions. What is top of mind when it comes to filling this role? In addition, what types of career growth opportunities would follow this position? And lastly, do you have internal candidates who are also interviewing for this position?"

6.

If you were to be hired at Daimler Group Services Berlin, what are your salary expectations?

The best way to discuss your salary expectations are to use your current earnings as an example. Be open, and honest. Transparency is the best choice when salary based questions arise.

Rachelle's Answer #1

"Currently, I earn a base salary of $45,000 per year plus a potential 20% annual bonus. Last year my earnings were $52,000 and I would like to stay in the same range or slightly higher."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"I am currently making $100,000 per year with two bonus opportunities. I am looking for compensation that is aligned with the role and provides opportunity for growth."

7.

How will you earn the trust of your coworkers at Daimler Group Services Berlin?

Workplace relationships are important to nurture. Talk to the interviewer about how you plan to earn the trust of your new co-workers, should you be offered the position.

Rachelle's Answer #1

"I feel that the best way to earn the trust of my co-workers is to be helpful, always do what I promise, and be honest with them at all times. Strong relationships have to be built on these principles."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"Here are some ideas on how to build trust with your coworkers:

- Show that you care about them, and their personal lives
- Understand that you can learn from your coworkers and attempt to do so
- Show consistency in the quality of your worl
- Behave in consistent and predicable ways"

8.

Outside of work, what type of creative activities do you like to pursue?

A true creative minded person will have outside activities aside from what's happening in the workplace. Tell the interviewer about the variety of ways in which you express your creativity.

Rachelle's Answer #1

"Outside of work I like to attend dance classes and I also attend the odd paint and sip wine nights at a local wine shop. I also enjoy reading as a way of nurturing my creative side."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"Outside of work I love to explore my creative side. I practice photography for fun. As an avid reader, I also explore writing. Cooking is also an art for me and I try to incorporate creativity into the fun meals I prepare for family and friends."

9.

What is the riskiest decision you have made? What happened in the end?

As a successful professional, you have the knowledge to calculate risk in your industry. Tell the interviewer about a work-related risk you have taken and what the outcome was.

Start with an overview of the decision you needed to make, and explain why the situation was risky. Describe who the situation affected, as well as the possible outcomes. Complete your answer by sharing how the decision paid off, or by mentioning any recognition you received for your success.

Rachelle's Answer #1

"The riskiest decision I ever made was to leave the recruitment industry to move into workforce planning, as a consultant. The risk meant that if I was unsuccessful, I would be looking for a new job in a really slow economy. The pay off would be that I would finally be in a sector that I was truly interested in. I made a great career for myself for the next 8 years, which has brought me here today - with an exceptional opportunity in front of me."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"One of the riskiest decisions I made was to leave corporate america and join a start up with an innovative idea. The company was seeking to provide a product/service that would pioneer a new industry. We worked hard and smart to launch and create a new space in the nutraceutical marketplace. We failed a lot along the way, but we learned to fail fast and it made us all better professionals."

10.

How do you determine priorities when you have multiple projects due?

When you feel torn between multiple projects or tasks, how do you decide which one needs your attention the most? Assure the interviewer that you are able to be diligent when it comes to assessing your priorities.

Rachelle's Answer #1

"I will determine which project requires my attention by the amount of hours we are behind and then the project size. I am comfortable delegating tasks when needed but I am also aware that these times will require an additional commitment of hours from me. Never have I under delivered on a deadline."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"Assuming that the projects have different stakeholders, I interview each to determine the value of increased productivity, morale or revenue, decreased costs, and/or the overall impact."

11.

As a human resources professional, you will come across difficult scenarios. How do you deal in uncomfortable situations?

Often, our work environment holds the possibility for awkward or tense situations. It can be difficult to know how to respond when you have a coworker who is moody, or when your coworker lacks social skills and constantly asks inappropriate questions. The interviewer wants to know that you can keep your cool in situations like these.

Rachelle's Answer #1

"I have had my share of awkward situations, and having raised 2 kids, I am no stranger to them! In the workplace, if an uncomfortable situation arises I tend to face the issue head on, but in a tactful way. Sweeping things under the rug rarely helps. I have no problem being open with my team or colleagues if I am not feeling comfortable in a particular situation."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"Uncomfortable situations don't really phase me. As a human resources professional, I truly have seen and heard it all. It's important to remain professional and collected, even in the most awkward of situations."

12.
