Question 1 of 31

At Home Bargains we like to hire strong achievers. Give me an example of a time when you went above and beyond.

"I was recently cleaning up a section of the store where I currently work when a customer came into my section with three small kids who were all screaming and crying. He looked totally overwhelmed! I smiled and greeted him, then I asked if the kids might enjoy something to keep them occupied, like a coloring book. He looked so grateful and relieved, so I went and grabbed some coloring supplies that we keep in the stockroom for these kinds of situations and sat on the floor with the kids for about fifteen minutes while he finished up his shopping. It was small thing for me to do, but I know it made a huge impact on his day. That's what customer service really means to me: finding small opportunities to make big impacts."
