If you had $50,000 to build your own business, what would you do?
If money was no object, what kind of business would you start? The interviewer will be able to learn something new and unique about you through this question. Avoid answers that would include building a business that competes with the hiring company.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"If I had $50,000 to build my own business I would open up a community center in my neighborhood that offered inexpensive childcare, cooking classes, and other life skills programs. I am passionate about volunteering and see a strong need in those particular areas."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"If I had the funds to build my own business, I would follow my creative passion for music and start a studio where people could take music lessons and rent equipment that they may not be able to afford otherwise to purchase."
2.
What causes you to feel dissatisfied on the job?
Everyone will have particular triggers that cause them to feel dissatisfaction on the job. Talk to the interviewer about any factors that may deflate or discourage you at Lion Beer Australia.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I can feel dissatisfaction on the job when I am not feeling heard or when there is not mutual respect among the team members. I work best in more harmonious situations where there is little drama or gossip."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Try turning your answer into a positive by talking about what causes you to feel the most satisfied, on the job.

For example: "I feel most satisfied when I am in a company with like-minded, positive people. I love to collaborate and try new and creative ideas."
3.
When given an important assignment, how do you approach handling it?
Are you the individual who will approach an assignment head-on, or do you need to research and plan first? Do you jump in and get it all done immediately or do you balance it with other assignments? Talk to the interviewer about how you approach essential assignments at work.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"When my supervisor gives me an important assignment or task I am sure to assess the depth of the project then take a look at my schedule to see how I can appropriately balance it with my other work. I do not procrastinate because then it's easy to forget to fit them in."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I tend to jump right into a project! Not in a careless way, but in an enthusiastic one. I like to get my hands dirty and get the job going, right away."
4.
At Lion Beer Australia we seek to hire individuals who are passionate about the beer and brewing industry. What do you do to stay on top of industry news and trends?
Assure the interviewer that you have a genuine interest in the brewing industry by talking briefly about the ways you stay up to date on new trends. It's a great idea to ask the interviewer how they stay up to date, as well. You never know what you could learn!

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I make my home brew as a hobby, so I stay updated on new trends in brewing through my local homebrew store. I also follow a couple of great blogs such as brewbeerblog.com. I go to our local Beer Fest every year as well!"
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I stay up to date on new industry trends and news by reading a few subscriptions on a regular basis. My favorite resources include A, B, and C. Which are yours?"
5.
At your current or former place of employment, how important was communication and dealing with others?
Are you accustomed to working in an environment where clear communication with others is vital? Talk to the interviewer about your most recent work and how excellent communication played a part in your success.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"In my previous role, healthy communication was required in order to protect the safety of our employees. We transported dangerous goods, and our management required that we all take specific workshops on communication and documentation. Because of this, my communication skills are solid."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Unfortunately, healthy communication was a missing element in my most recent position. It is a large part of the reason I decided to seek out a new opportunity. I believe that communication is incredibly important for the success of an organization as well as team morale."
6.
Have you progressed in your career as you have expected?
Career progression can be a touchy subject, especially if you feel that your career hasn't progressed as well as you would have liked. Talk to the interviewer about your career progression and what you would like to see in the future with Lion Beer Australia.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"Overall, my career has progressed a touch slower than I would have liked. I have held a couple of positions that didn't offer the growth and learning that I was expecting; however, I have bounced back nicely. I feel that this particular position would take my career exactly where it should be."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I had a pretty specific career mapped out and do feel that I am on track, as expected. I am happy with where my career is right now and would like to see future growth, at a manageable pace, with Lion Beer Australia."
7.
Environmental responsibility is important to Lion Beer Australia. What do you think of our organization's sustainability efforts?
The interviewer would like to know that you have done your research on Lion Beer Australia before attending the interview. You can easily find this type of information on most company websites so take a few minutes to research what Lion Beer Australia is doing regarding environmental sustainability.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I noticed on your website that you are currently working on ways to reduce the water use in your breweries. Water is such a valuable resource, so I like to see that Lion Beer Australia is making a concerted effort to make a difference in this area."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Not all companies are focused on sustainability and the environment. I think that your sustainability efforts are rare and responsible."
8.
Do you understand the difference between craft beer and big beer?
The interviewer would like to know that you understand the basics of the brewing industry. The biggest battle in the brewing market is often craft vs. big beer. It is best to answer this question in a non-bias manner.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"A craft brewer is small, independent, and usually employs traditional brewing methods. A big beer brewer generally has more funds for experimental brews and the retail price is usually a bit friendlier."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I am not formally trained in craft beer but am somewhat familiar with the industry from my research on Lion Beer Australia. I believe that the primary difference between craft and big beer are the brewing methods, but I do look forward to learning much more!"
9.
At Lion Beer Australia we put a lot of effort into our safety and hygiene standards. Do you have any formal health and safety training?
Your health and safety credentials are on your resume; however, the interviewer would like for you to go into a bit more detail. You can talk about a course that you most enjoyed or perhaps discuss a certification that you would like to achieve down the road. It is excellent if you can open the discussion by asking the interviewer if Lion Beer Australia is looking for a particular set of credentials when it comes to health and safety.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I have a certification in grain handling, keg cleaning, and bottling. I took these courses and became certified in 2013 by The Brewers Association. I would like to take additional training in Filtering and Pumping. Are there any particular courses or training sessions you would like to see me attend?"
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I am happy to take any health and safety training that you require. I have taken some courses in the past but am unsure if they are still valid."
10.
How do you feel about our branding and marketing strategy at Lion Beer Australia?
It is essential that you research, and understand, the brand(s) promoted by Lion Beer Australia so that you can have an educated opinion on their marketing strategies. Perhaps they have great commercials, an informative website, or a strong presence at sporting events. Be prepared to discuss at least one aspect of their marketing and be sure to show your enthusiasm for the things you feel Lion Beer Australia does best.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"One thing that I appreciate about Lion Beer Australia is that your branding has always been consistent. It's entertaining and not over the top. I also like that you put a strong emphasis on supporting local sporting events."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Your branding is what made me apply to work for Lion Beer Australia in the first place. Your brand is refreshing, and your workplace boasts a close-knit culture."
11.
At Lion Beer Australia we have a great selection of beers. Which is your favorite product?
It is crucial that you have a personal opinion on the product offered by Lion Beer Australia before you go into your interview. Perhaps they offer a variety pack that you can pick up or maybe you are already familiar with the product. Choose one product that stands out to you and be prepared to discuss what you love about it!

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I have always enjoyed the majority of the product offered by Lion Beer Australia; however, my new favorite has been the winter ale offered this year. It's crisp and has a lively finish. I keep it stocked at home because even non-beer drinkers enjoy it, so it's easy to bring out when people drop by unexpectedly."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Although I am not a drinker, I can appreciate the care and attention that goes into all of your products. I am especially interested in your brewing process as it's unique and very much a craft process."
12.
Our industry is a very competitive one. Tell me one thing you feel Lion Beer Australia could improve on.
Avoid giving a long-winded or overly opinionated answer when it comes to questions about company improvement. If you must provide feedback to Lion Beer Australia try to draw out an idea that isn't too severe or negative. Always follow your answer up with a comment on what the company is doing right.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"That is a tough question because I enjoy what you are doing at Lion Beer Australia. If I had to choose one thing I would suggest making your website more mobile friendly. Other than that - I think your branding is great and people love your product!"
Rachelle's Answer #2
"One way I feel that Lion Beer Australia could improve, would be to improve your social media presence. Your customers are loyal ones, and I am sure they would love to have an inside peek of your operations and up and coming products."
13.
In such a competitive industry, how do you think Lion Beer Australia stands out from competitors?
Interviewers often use these conversations as ways to gain insight into what their consumers like about their product. Research the Lion Beer Australia website and check out their 'News' and 'About Us' sections to discover where they are currently gaining recognition.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I believe that Lion Beer Australia stands out from your competitors because you put a strong emphasis on shrinking your economic footprint. The news page on your website talks about how you've reduced water usage this year by 12%. It's a great accomplishment, and your efforts are standing out in this industry."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"In my opinion, Lion Beer Australia stands out through your reputation for taking care of your employees. Your company culture is unmatched. I believe that happy employees create great products so this could certainly give you an edge over your competitors."
14.
At Lion Beer Australia we prefer to hire those with an existing knowledge in the beer and brewing industry. Name 3 types of beers and how they differ from each other.
Assure the interviewer that you bring a real interest to the brewing industry. Display a bit of your knowledge by talking briefly about the three types of beers you are most familiar with and what the most noticeable difference is between them.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"The three types of beer that first come to mind are Ales, Stouts, and Lagers. Lagers are the most popular type of beer sold in bars and liquor stores - likely because they have a crisp and refreshing finish. Ales generally come in second to Lagers, as popularity is concerned, because they are heavier. Many people still enjoy the assertive taste of an Ale. Stouts are well known for their darker, creamier taste. They are not consumed as readily as an Ale or Lager but a very popular choice, nonetheless."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I have researched the brewing industry extensively, to prepare for this interview. The beers I am most familiar with are Ales, Stouts, and Lagers. Lagers are light and refreshing. Ales are heavier than a Lager, and then a Stout is much darker and creamier."
15.
Tell me about a time that you have helped a co-worker accomplish an important goal.
Being goal-oriented and determined is imperative when working at Lion Beer Australia. What do you do, outside of your own 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
"As a Sales Manager my team is only as successful as the lowest producing employee. It is crucial that my entire team is motivated, engaged, and on point with their KPI's. Last month I hired a new employee who was struggling significantly with sales. I sat him down and realized that he 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
"I had a coworker who recently needed some flexibility in his schedule so that he could finish his final university exams. I offered to take his overtime shift as well as to swap a couple of shifts with him. It always feels good to help someone accomplish things that are important to them."
