      "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 can 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."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "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."

  1. How would your co-workers describe you?
    • This question gives you an opportunity to show off your best qualities. Take a moment to reflect on your relationships with your co-workers.

When I am working on ABC project, I always pay close attention to detail, double checking my work for any mistakes. My co-workers appreciate that I think about the big picture, being considerate of how my work will affect their jobs. I am highly collaborative with a great attitude."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "I am methodical about my work and my schedule. I set reminders on my calendar to stay organized and on-time, relying on my google calendar and my to-do list. I make sure I can make it to soccer practice each week so that I can play in the games on the weekends."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "I find that with the right company, it's pretty simple to balance life and work. When I enjoy what I do, the work doesn't feel like a chore.

Think of a time you had a chance to make a difference by making a change in a process or procedure.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "Since customers are so much more concerned about their long-term health, I helped my current company come up with a marketing campaign for ABC product to appeal to the health concerns of the public. I conducted market research, using surveys to identify the specific health concerns of individuals who buy our products. By promoting our new health-conscious recipe, we were able to increase sales by 15% that year!"

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "In my previous role I was fortunate enough to introduce my company to the idea of a gold level service where, in addition to our general customer service, we added additional options. Our customer base responded very positively, and we kept the program running for a few years."

    5.

  1. Do you have experience training others?
    • Because Delta Beverages Limited is growing at such a rapid pace, as they hire new staff, your manager may ask you to train new employees. If you have experience, talk about how you used your strengths and skills to teach others. If you don't have experience with training, you can share how you will demonstrate, listen and observe others throughout the training process.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "Yes, I trained two individuals on XYZ skill in my previous job. First I had them shadow me so that they could see what I was doing. I made myself very approachable by making sure they felt comfortable asking questions, speaking slowly and demonstrating. I asked them if they wanted to try while I shadowed them. This was a very effective way to train, and I enjoyed it very much!"

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "I have not been in a role senior enough to train others in the past, but I believe that I will be a strong trainer and mentor in the future. I care about the progress of my colleagues and am a patient teacher."

    6.

  1. How would you handle an issue with a policy or procedure?
    • Being adaptable to the food and beverage industry is essential. Delta Beverages Limited strives to keep up with their customers by improving their products, making changes in policies or procedures inevitable. This means policies can change quickly and you will be expected to adapt. The interviewer wants to hear how you will respond when you disagree with the way something is handled or executed.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "I would first talk with my manager to make sure I understood the expectation correctly. It could be that I was interpreting it wrong or that there was some miscommunication. If I still had an issue, I would take some time to think about how I can deal with it. I've learned to pick my battles and to be adaptable as much as I can."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "I know well enough at this point in my career that policies and procedures are in place for a reason. If I truly don't understand the reasoning behind the policy, I will ask for further clarification in a respectful and open-minded way."

    7.

  1. At Delta Beverages Limited we value individuals who take initiative. Can you give me an example of a time you did something without being asked?
    • Taking the initiative demonstrates leadership ability. Even if you are working as a delivery driver, there is always an opportunity to be proactive in the way you approach your work. Delta Beverages Limited wants to hire individuals who demonstrate leadership qualities, because they invest in their employees and often promote from within. Impress the interviewer by showing how you manage your workload and take action before anyone has the chance to ask you first.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "I noticed the numbers were off on a shipment I was delivering to a customer. They had ordered 30 cases, and we were only delivering 25. When I made the delivery, I let the customer know we would deliver the additional cases the next day and I called my manager to find out what went wrong. My manager and the client appreciated my sense of urgency and my ability to take action after making that observation."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

    • Responding to a conflict can be tough, especially in a team environment where you want to be sensitive not to step on any toes. Share an example of a conflict that occurred within your department or between you and a co-worker that you effectively resolved. Explain the situation and how your actions resulted in a resolution or a compromise.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "My coworker was a great salesman but horrible at the administrative side. He made so many mistakes and didn't seem to care. It bothered me because I take such pride in the quality of my work. I decided to talk with him and found out that he wasn't very clear on expectations or how to do some of the basic aspects of the paperwork for each sale. He ended up getting some additional training to get on the same page as the rest of the team."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "In my current position there has been a concern with workplace bullying, and there are a particular group of individuals who 'lead the pack,' so to speak. The situation became out of control a few months ago, and I had to involve human resources as well as conduct a few exit interviews. It is never easy having to terminate employees; however, if they are causing conflict, it is always the best choice in the end."

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "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!"

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "Sometimes I have difficulty asking for help from co-workers. I like having control over my daily tasks and taking on new projects, but I'm not always willing to admit when I have taken on too much. When I made a mistake because I was juggling too many projects, I learned that it's okay to ask for help. I'm learning how to organize myself better and communicate what I need from my team. This skill has helped me be more effective at my job, and it's helped my team work together even better than before!"
