What would you do if a coworker asked you to help them steal?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
The interviewer would like to know how you would react if put in an awkward, or potentially harmful situation like being asked by a co-worker to steal with them. Theft can occur in many ways in the workplace and is not necessarily reserved to blatantly taking a product. Ensure that you are aware of the different ways a co-worker may try to pass stealing off as 'no big deal.'

- Timecard fabrication, also known as "buddy punching" where you punch in for a coworker who is not present
- 'Borrowing' money from the cash register
- Falsifying vendor or expense accounts
- Taking items from the lost and found
- Stealing data or documents containing trade secrets
- Taking expensive office supplies like ink, or adding personal items to supply orders
- Billing hours to clients that they did not work

Of course, you already know how to answer this question! Express that you would never engage in this type of behavior and discuss how you would go about reporting this type of situation. If this has happened to you in the past, you can talk about the case.

Answer Example
"buddy punching"

Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
The interviewer wants you to bring your resume to life for them.

If you have experience, start off by giving the interviewer a brief overview of your experience by sharing where you have worked, your job title, and any individual achievements. Add a sentence or two about what your job duties were in each role as well. Be sure to mention that you look forward to continuing to work in retail industry roles.

If you do not have experience working in retail, you can express that you have a solid idea of what it means to deliver excellent customer service. Show the ways you have been dedicated in the past, perhaps to volunteer efforts or part of a school club or athletics team.

Answer Example
"I have not worked in retail, as this role with Home Depot would be my first official job; however, I do have experience working in a team environment as Captain of my college football team for the past two years. I know a lot about collaboration and dedication."

Question 4 of 30
How do you handle stress on the job?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
The interviewer would like to know if you can appropriately handle the stress related to this job. Discuss how you can thrive, even during the most stressful times. You can keep your answer brief. If you can, provide an example of a time when you implemented a stress-management technique in your current role.

Answer Example
"I am quite resilient to stress and believe this is because of my eight-plus years' experience being in a management role in a fast-paced environment. Under times of extreme stress, I make sure to give myself a breather whether that be a quick walk around the block or a couple of minutes on the phone with my wife who is great at bringing me back down to earth."

Question 5 of 30
Tell me about the most rewarding experience you have had, working in a team environment. What made it so rewarding?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
The interviewer wants to hear that you feel accomplished through teamwork. Talk about a time when you felt fulfilled through a team setting or project collaboration. An example may be a time when you worked on a team project in University, a recent work collaboration, or possibly an extracurricular experience such as coaching a little league team. Discuss the positive results of the teamwork and how you attained a positive outcome as a group.

Answer Example
"Last Christmas, we were short staffed, and run off of our feet during the biggest shopping season of the year. The struggle, the overtime hours, but also the excitement of huge sales numbers, put our team on a type of high that I had not seen before. It was pure adrenaline and super exciting. This experience is by far the best team environment in which I have ever worked. I loved the excitement and the way we all banded together to ensure the success of our store."
