Balancing the needs of multiple parties can be a challenge. Discuss with the interviewer how you ensure that everyone involved in a project is feeling happy and listened to. Provide some information in regards to how your current position requires the same of you.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"In my current position I am tasked with anticipating the needs of our customers based on last years' trends. This approach means ensuring that our vendors keep us stocked - and at the price that our customers have come to expect. I find that the best way to keep a balance of satisfaction is by always being honest. When all parties maintain a healthy and realistic expectation, projects seem to run smoother."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"It certainly can be a juggling act to keep customers, vendors, manufacturers, and wholesalers happy...all at the same time! I know that situations come up and you cannot make all parties happy at the same time. With that said, my relationship with my customers always come first. I am kind and patient with our manufacturers and wholesalers because we need them too, but I am always clear with them on our project needs and deadlines."

Rachelle's Answer #1
"In my current position, I have strong relationships with my vendors. If it ever happens that inventory is short, they will usually go out of their way to source the product from another one of their contacts."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"If a vendor shorted me on inventory, which resulted in a project delay, I would be clear with them about the repercussions while, at the same time, giving them the wiggle room to work hard to fix the situation."
