My references will tell you that I am very organized as well. Rest assured, I understand the direct correlation between the organization, productivity, and profitability."
Rachelle's Answer #2

Do you ever use your sense of humor to diffuse a situation at work?
The interviewer wants to know that you can diffuse a tense situation if needed. They also want to see a bit more of your personality!

Think of a time when you took a much more lighthearted approach to diffuse a tense situation.

Rachelle's Answer
"I would say that I use my sense of humor often at work but in a good-natured way. Poking fun or adding a sense of sarcasm seems to make things a bit lighter and more fun on the floor and allows everyone to shake off whatever's bringing us down and move on to the next issue to tackle."
