How do you like to be recognized for your accomplishments?
We love to acknowledge and recognize the hard work that our team members do every day for our customers and for our company. Talk to the interviewer about how you enjoy being recognized for your contributions to your team.

Jordan's Answer #1
"I don't need anything big to feel recognized for my work, but when I achieve something huge -- like completion of a big project -- I think it's nice to have something that feels celebratory, like a small gift card to a nice restaurant. That way, my partner and I can enjoy a nice meal out together to celebrate my accomplishment. That's the ideal situation for me."
Jordan's Answer #2
"I am very much an over-achiever and find that the best way for me to be recognized for a job well done is through words of kindness and recognition. I am easily encouraged, and the best reward for me is to know that my hard work is noticed."
2.
How do you handle situations that could cause you to be late or miss work?
Proper planning will get you far, but sometimes life happens, and you'll need a plan B. Think about some of the variables in your life that could affect your ability to arrive on time for work. Sick children, traffic, car breakdowns... the list goes on. It may not be possible for everything to work out so smoothly, getting your shift covered or still making it to work on time. Your interviewer is looking to see that you are proactive and that you can handle the stress of unexpected situations that can arise.

Jordan's Answer #1
"I stay calm and composed when issues arise. My dad got rear ended one time when driving me to school. I texted my friend to see if she could tell my teacher what happened. I explained the situation to my teacher when I got to class. If this happened on my way to work, I would call ahead of time to ensure someone could cover my shift."
Jordan's Answer #2
"I hope never to be late! When I started working at a restaurant at sixteen years old, we were taught the adage of 'if you're on time, you're late,' so I've worked to implement that into my life. I always try to arrive 15 minutes early, but there are unforeseen circumstances that can arise. I handle surprises using common sense and keeping courtesy to others top of mind."
3.
What kinds of events cause you stress on the job? How do you respond to stress?
At JB Hi-Fi, we've worked hard to create an extraordinary company culture for our team members, but there are certain unavoidable realities in the retail industry: it's a fast-paced, competitive, ever-changing environment, and there are bound to be times of stress. Talk to the interviewer about stressors you've encountered in the workplace and how you respond to times of stress.

Jordan's Answer #1
"I feel stressed by stationary, inactive work -- that's why I made the transition from IT to retail in the first place. I've been working in retail for about three years now, and my stress levels have honestly decreased so much. I do occasionally feel stressed out during times of extreme customer traffic, like at the holidays, but even that stress is fun as long as I'm working on a team with people who are committed to having a good time while providing excellent customer service."
Jordan's Answer #2
"I really love the retail industry and have found that it's the atmosphere I feel most comfortable and peaceful in for my working life. I do get stressed out if the relationships between team members aren't healthy; in the past, I've had trouble focusing on my work if I know there's drama going on between my coworkers. I believe I've gotten better about this over the years, though. When I find myself feeling stressed, I try to channel my energy into efficiency and having great customer interactions."

What do you hope to learn from this job at JB Hi-Fi?
An ability to learn and retain information quickly is an important quality for a JB Hi-Fi team member. We start out your training from the very first to get you prepared for your new role. We're committed to supporting your development and helping you further your career, so let us know what you're hoping to learn during your time with JB Hi-Fi.

Jordan's Answer #1
"I've always loved working with computers and other electronics -- I've been taking apart computers and putting them back together since I was just a kid. I'm hoping that this role will offer me some opportunities to strengthen those engineering skills and afford me opportunities to potentially move up in the company in the future, hopefully in an IT position."
Jordan's Answer #2
"I am looking to lay the foundation for the rest of my career with this position. I looked at a lot of job postings and had interviewed some very carefully selected places, but you are by far my front-runner. I want to learn not only the fundamentals of sales but also become comfortable with both sides of the business. I appreciate that you want me to start with the basics of the inside sales before moving into outside sales."
5.
How do you feel about performance incentives?
At JB Hi-Fi, our team members are strongly recognized for their efforts, and we have a generous sales commission structure in place, plus fantastic incentives available as well. Talk to the interviewer about how you feel about performance incentives.

Jordan's Answer #1
"I feel that performance incentives are a great idea. They keep an employee motivated to do a great job and ensure that they are on top of their KPI's. The majority of people are very enthused about being rewarded for their successes."
Jordan's Answer #2
"I do not require performance incentives, to do a great job; however, small perks are always nice to have!"
