Have you ever been employed through a company merger or acquisition? If so, tell me about your experience.
When your work history includes employment with large companies and/or diversified services corporations the chances are high that you have experienced a merger or acquisition of some sort. Perhaps you have been laid off through a process such as this? Talk to the interviewer about your experience. They are looking for an idea of your attitude when it comes to change in your workplace environment. Maintain a positive attitude and avoid speaking negatively about any previous employers.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I went through a merger in 2010 with Company ABC. The transition during their mass-layoff was not handled as professionally as many would have liked; however, I believe that the leadership team did the best they could. I was lucky enough to stay on board with the company and my experience during the transition was certainly eye opening. I learned a lot through the process."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I have not had the experience of being involved in a company merger or acquisition. From my understanding, it can be a stressful time for employees and upper management, alike. I feel that the key to a smooth merger would be setting clear expectations and maintaining a high level of communication during all stages."
2.
After receiving information from your supervisor, how do you ensure you properly communicate this information to your team?
It is immensely important to accurately communicate information in the workplace. Discuss with the interviewer how you go about doing so.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"When I receive new information from my supervisor I will run my understanding of it by the supervisor to ensure that my interpretation is correct. After that, I will relay the information formally (in writing) to my team. This eliminates word of mouth and misinterpretation surrounding the issue."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I ensure I have the correct directives from my supervisor and there is clarity over the direction to be taken. Once that happens, I distribute the communication out to my team - typically in a huddle/face-to-face meeting. I follow this up with a written form of communication."
3.
At LearningMate Solutions Private our business portfolio is diversified which can create a challenging management environment. Are you able to effectively manage unrelated business units?
The interviewer understands that with LearningMate Solutions Private Ltd. being a diverse organization, effective management between business units can be tricky. Assure the interviewer that you are up for the task by giving a specific example of a more challenging leadership role you have held in the past. Briefly discuss the challenge, your approach, the outcome, and what you gained from the experience.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"My first leadership position was with a land services company. We had multiple business units including services for residential and commercial clients. The largest challenge was maintaining the same level of customer service for the residential customers as we did the commercial customers. It took some additional training and mentoring of our existing staff and over time I was able to create a training manual that could be implemented for all business units. The implementation was a success and our customer service feedback improved significantly. One thing I learned from this experience is that even though your business may have lines drawn in regards to services and offerings, all employees should be trained and treated the same. Continuity in management is incredibly important."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Yes, I am able to effectively manage unrelated business units. I do this by keeping expectations and support the same, through all units. In my current role we also take the time to socially integrate everyone so that they feel part of a team, regardless of the formal business structure."
4.
Tell me about a time that you have helped a co-worker accomplish an important goal.
It is very important to be goal-oriented and determined. What do you do, outside of your own personal goals, to ensure that everyone on your team is successful? Assure the interviewer that you are always willing to keep the team, or company as a whole, in mind.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"Last quarter we hired someone who ended up struggling significantly with sales. I sat him down and realized that he simply didn't understand the product. We spent a few hours together over that next week learning the product. In the end, his sales increased by 64% and he was significantly more confident. It helped the team morale as well."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"One of my coworkers was fundraising for a particular cause that was close to his heart. I suggested that we start an office based 50/50 draw, where our team could contribute financially in hopes to win part of the pot. Our clients became involved as well and we had a lot of fun. He was able to raise the funds needed and it ended up being a great team building exercise as well."
5.
At LearningMate Solutions Private we offer a wide range of products and services. How do you plan to positively impact our business, if hired?
The interviewer is looking for a couple of main points in your answer. One, they would like to know that you have clearly researched the products / services offered at LearningMate Solutions Private Ltd.. Two, they would like to see that you have actively thought about your potential fit with LearningMate Solutions Private Ltd. and the ways that you would make a fast and positive impact on their organization.

Your answer should display your confidence and touch on your particular specialty. This could include your great ability to memorize product features, your natural sales abilities, or your cold calling skills.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I really appreciate the range of products that you offer your clients at LearningMate Solutions Private Ltd.. I am sure that it is a bit of work to become familiar with all of the products; however, I am very good at memorization and my recall abilities are above average. I expect that I will be up to date on your product lines much faster than your average employee. This strength also helps when it comes to my up-selling percentages because I can easily recommend additional products based on the customers needs."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I plan to positively impact your business, very quickly, by being incredibly diligent in my training, getting to know your service offerings in and out, and being an engaged member of your team from day one."
6.
Tell me about a time when you took the initiative to improve work related procedures.
Have you ever taken the opportunity to present your employer with potential change? Talk to the hiring manager about a time when you took initiative in the workplace.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I was able to present and implement one specific change in the office this past year. It was a recycling program that I felt was very important, even for our smaller office. We had significantly less waste after my initiative was implemented and I enjoyed seeing others take pride in helping our environment."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"In my previous position, I noticed that our written procedures were not exactly how the employees were doing things. I decided to interview the employees and compare it to the written procedures that management wanted used. We were able to come to a compromise that met all of the safety and quality requirements of the company, but still worked a bit faster and easier for the staff."
7.
How has your post-secondary education prepared you for this job with LearningMate Solutions Private?
While attending post-secondary studies, you likely learned some core skills that would be transferable to any position. Think about what you learned in your highest levels of education and how that knowledge applies (or will apply) to your work.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I am a big believer in post-secondary education. It adds a lot of value to those newer to the workplace. My post-secondary education was in Communication and Journalism. The courses in this program helped me to develop stronger business relationships through professional correspondence. I also learned persuasive writing skills which have proven to be incredibly helpful when working on client proposals, and in negotiations."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Some skills gained from post-secondary include:

- Time Management
- Creative Thinking
- Proposal Writing
- Public Speaking
- Presentation Building
- Independent Learning
- Academic Research
- Self-Motivation"
8.
Why do you think you will be successful in this role with LearningMate Solutions Private?
Rather than just sharing how you have gone above and beyond, focus on how your qualities will help you to meet and exceed expectations. Discuss the reasons why will you be great at this job. Talk about your qualifications and skills that will help you to do this job well. If you can, match your strengths to the requirements outlined in the job description.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I know I will be successful in this role because I have been working in this industry for five years with great training and mentor-ship. I have a solid understanding of X, Y, and Z (skills listed in the job description). Also, I have all of my updated certifications as outlined in your job description. I am well-prepared for this next step in my career."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I'm confident that I would be the best choice for this role. I am qualified, excited, and this has really been my dream company and role for as long as I can remember. I know that I want it more than anyone else and I have all of the qualifications, plus the biggest heart and work ethic. You won't be disappointed if you choose to hire me."
9.
Do you have any questions for me about this position?
It's always a great idea to have questions ready for the interviewer. Review the company website and other online resources to ensure the questions you are asking are not mundane, or redundant. The last thing an interviewer wants to hear is a list of questions you could have found the answers to from simply watching a video on their company site!

Here are some sample questions:

- When would you like to have this position filled?
- How long has this role been vacant?
- Is this a replacement search or a newly created role?
- What is your favorite part about working here?
- What is the company's primary goal for this position in the next 12 months?
- Is there anything from my background and experience that I can clarify for you?
- What do you see as the biggest change in this industry over the past 3 years?
- Is there any reason why you would not hire me?
Rachelle's Answer
"I have been a fan of your company for as long as I can remember and I am curious what the vision is for expanding in the future to new markets, especially considering the growth of e-commerce and decline of brick and mortar stores across all industries. How do you plan to remain relevant?"
10.
Because LearningMate Solutions Private is a diversified organization, we offer a wide range of opportunities for career growth. Where would you like to see your career in 5 years?
Before your interview be sure to visit LearningMate Solutions Private Ltd. career opportunities online. Take note of the range in opportunities. Perhaps there are opportunities in other locations? What kind of growth is available in the particular department you are interviewing with? Assure the interviewer that you desire a long term opportunity with LearningMate Solutions Private Ltd. by discussing the career path you would like.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I saw a few leadership opportunities posted on your company website that seemed very interesting. Ultimately, I would like to work my way into a management role that offered leadership opportunities. I am very interested in working for LearningMate Solutions Private Ltd. because of the multiple growth opportunities present here and I look forward to proving my capabilities to you."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"In 5 years I would like to be seen as an authority in our industry. I would like to be well-connected and trusted when it comes to my work here at LearningMate Solutions Private Ltd.."
11.
Because LearningMate Solutions Private has a large geographic footprint, we have to accommodate a variety of time zones. Do you have experience working for clients and co-workers in multiple time zones?
Working for a diversified services organization can bring some unique challenges as their global footprint may be vast. Be sure to express to the interviewer that you are able to successfully handle the challenges that come along with a large geographic footprint.

If you have experience working with clients and co-workers in multiple time zones: "In my current position I collaborate with our offices in the U.S., Canada, Scotland, and Finland. It was a struggle at first to always remember what day and time others were working in; however, I now have a great desktop application that tracks this for me so I have quick reference to the information that I need."
Rachelle's Answer #1
"In my current position I collaborate with our offices in the U.S., Canada, Scotland, and Finland. It was a struggle at first to always remember what day and time others were working in; however, I now have a great desktop application that tracks this for me so I have quick reference to the information that I need."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"If you do not have experience working with clients and co-workers in multiple time zones: "I do not have exposure to working around multiple time zones; however, this is something I could pick up on very quickly. With technology these days I am sure I could find some help with a handy phone or desktop application. Also, I am not opposed to working outside of business hours on the occasions where I would need to communicate with a client across the globe."
12.
What is your personal mission statement?
Not everyone has a mission statement or personal mantra just off the cuff. In business, especially when entering leadership, this is an important question to ponder. Do you have a quote that inspires you, or a saying that you grew up with that really resonates with you?

Rachelle's Answer #1
"My personal mantra is that 'people who shine from within do not need the spotlight.' I feel that it is incredibly important to be a humble leader and I take this mission statement very seriously. I want my team to be in the spotlight rather than being the kind of leader that takes credit for good work."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"My personal mission is to give my best 100% of the time. It's important to me that I have a great reputation in this industry through hard work and a positive attitude."
13.
What would you do if a client asked you about a product or service and you were unsure of the answer?
The interviewer wants know if you are an independent thinker. Explain that you would take the time to try and figure out the answer, but you are not afraid to ask questions if you need to.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"If I had a client ask me about something that I didn't know enough about, I would absolutely find the answer for them before giving a false answer. I am okay with admitting when I don't know something and i love to learn new things. Of course, I would find the answer quickly by asking the appropriate person or finding it within the company's internal resources."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I am a great researcher and do not mind asking for help. If I did not know the answer, I would readily admit it but then also commit myself to finding the answer."
14.
What causes you to feel dissatisfied on the job?
Everyone will have their own particular triggers that cause them to feel dissatisfaction on the job. Talk to the interviewer about any factors that may deflate or discourage you in the workplace.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I can feel dissatisfaction on the job when I am not feeling heard or when there is not a mutual respect among the team members. I work best in more harmonious situations where there is little drama or gossip."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I have felt dissatisfied on the job when I feel underpaid and overworked. I don't mind working hard at all but I don't like to feel as though I'm being taken advantage of."
15.
How would you describe your work ethic?
When the interviewer asks about your work ethic they are looking for specific examples or keywords they can relate to. When you read the company job posting or job description do they refer to particular company ethics? Talk about their values and how those align well with your personal work values.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I am a very dedicated and loyal employee. I saw on your website that you describe your company as honest, transparent and you go the extra mile for your clients. My work ethic is the same. I am honest, flexible, and come ready to work hard for my employer every day."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Here are some keywords to describe your work ethic:

- Diligent
- Ambitious
- Thorough
- Attentive
- Consistent
