Answer Examples

1.

If you were to be hired at Lominger International, what are your salary expectations?

The best way to discuss your salary expectations are to use your current earnings as an example. Be open, and honest. Transparency is the best choice when salary based questions arise.

Rachelle's Answer #1

"Currently, I earn a base salary of $45,000 per year plus a potential 20% annual bonus. Last year my earnings were $52,000 and I would like to stay in the same range or slightly higher."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"I am currently making $100,000 per year with two bonus opportunities. I am looking for compensation that is aligned with the role and provides opportunity for growth."

2.

As a human resources professional, you will come across difficult scenarios. How do you deal in uncomfortable situations?

Often, our work environment holds the possibility for awkward or tense situations. It can be difficult to know how to respond when you have a coworker who is moody, or when your coworker lacks social skills and constantly asks inappropriate questions. The interviewer wants to know that you can keep your cool in situations like these.

Rachelle's Answer #1

"I have had my share of awkward situations, and having raised 2 kids, I am no stranger to them! In the workplace, if an uncomfortable situation arises I tend to face the issue head on, but in a tactful way. Sweeping things under the rug rarely helps. I have no problem being open with my team or colleagues if I am not feeling comfortable in a particular situation."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"Uncomfortable situations don't really phase me. As a human resources professional, I truly have seen and heard it all. It's important to remain professional and collected, even in the most awkward of situations."

3.

Who has inspired you in your life and why?

Your life's inspiration can come from a book, a mentor, your family, a celebrity, author - literally anyone! Talk to the interviewer about who has inspired your life and why.

Rachelle's Answer #1

"I find inspiration in a variety of people and things. I would have to say that the person who has most greatly inspired me has been my grandmother. She always had a smile on her face no matter how hard she worked and she loved everyone. She was well respected and always gave more than she received. I try to live like her as much as I can."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"My previous manager was a huge inspiration to me. Her passion for this industry was motivating and really put the fire in me to climb the ladder in my own career."

4.

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

"I am known to say 'Kindness wins'. I truly believe that if we approach all situations with kindness first, the world would be a happier place."

Anonymous Answer

"I’ve been known to say "the Earth still rotated today,” meaning, don’t get hung up too much on the small stuff. The world is not going to end. Translating that into a personal mission statement, I’d say, "Do what you need to do and be sure to help others along the way."

Rachelle's Answer

That's a great saying! Love it!

Was this answer helpful? Yes or No

5.

Tell me about your relationship with your previous boss.

When you answer this question be sure to remain positive, even if the experience wasn't. Avoid talking about any previous drama and do not speak poorly of your employer. Keep your answer short and respectful.

If you had a good relationship with your previous boss: "I had a very healthy relationship with my previous employer. She was easy to approach and we would bounce ideas off of each other quite often. I would sum it up as a relationship lead by a strong mutual respect."

Rachelle's Answer #1

"I had a very healthy relationship with my previous employer. She was easy to approach and we would bounce ideas off of each other quite often. I would sum it up as a relationship lead by a strong mutual respect."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"If you did not have a good relationship with your previous boss: "I have had healthier relationships in the past with previous employers but we did the best that we could. Our communication styles were very different which made it challenging at times."

6.

You will be required to present to large teams at Lominger International. Tell me about your experiences giving presentations in front of large groups.

Public speaking can be intimidating so assure the interviewer that you are capable of communicating well in front of large groups. Have you taken any courses or training in public speaking? Perhaps you have so much experience that it comes second nature. Assure the interviewer that you are capable of giving presentations.

Rachelle's Answer #1

"In my past 2 roles I have been responsible for regularly presenting to my team of 43 staff as well as to our entire warehouse team of over 200. I have taken a couple of Toastmasters sessions which helped a great deal. I am a confident public speaker."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"Although I do not bring experience in giving presentations to large groups, it is something that I would be comfortable with doing. I am confident and do have some training in public speaking from my days in University."

Anonymous Answer

"I've delivered training sessions on numerous occasions. I find it best when I know my subject matter. I have a rough outline of what I want to speak about but not word for word. I practice out loud to a couple of team members beforehand. Don't be afraid of not knowing the answer to a question. Tell them you'll take it offline, find out the answer, and get back to them."

Rachelle's Answer

Good! Try to keep the answer personalized throughout. I have added a sample, below.

"I've delivered timesheet coding sessions on numerous occasions. I do my best when I know the subject matter and have a rough outline of the presentation. I will practice out loud to a couple of team members beforehand. Also, I remind myself to embrace the questions for which I do not have an answer. I can always find the answer after the presentation."

Was this answer helpful? Yes or No

7.

Tell me about one of the most rewarding experiences you had working on a team.

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.

Rachelle's Answer #1

"The most rewarding team work experience that I have had was in my last year of university. We were assigned a project in teams of 4 which accounted for quite a large part of our grade. I believe everyone pulled more than their own weight because so much was at stake. Team work is very rewarding when everyone has sometime to win, or lose."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"One of my most rewarding team work experiences was while I was attending University. I learned so much by working with my classmates. I gained new problem solving skills and learned a lot from their research preferences."

8.

What are you reading right now?

Do you feed your mind on a regular basis? What kind of literature do you prefer and why? Talk to the interviewer about a book that you are currently reading. If you are not currently reading a book - talk about one that has impacted you the most.

Rachelle's Answer #1

"Currently I am reading 'Ego is the Enemy' by Ryan Holiday. It is a book about ambition, resilience and success. I feel that every professional should read it - it comes highly recommended."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"I love to read and will pick up a book as often as I can - I just wish that were more often. The latest book I read was "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho. I think it's an important book that everyone should read."

Anonymous Answer

"I'm currently reading my 1st grader's readers with him, and my next holiday book is "Becoming" by Michelle Obama."

Rachelle's Answer

Great book! Cute touch with the 1st grade reader.

Was this answer helpful? Yes or No

9.

Would you say you are a better verbal or written communicator?

In which manner do you prefer to communicate - written or verbal? Discuss your preference with the interviewer and support your answer.

Rachelle's Answer #1

"I prefer verbal communication because I feel that with written communication, a lot can be misread due to lack of tone, fluctuation, expression and body language. I will always choose a face to face conversation whenever possible."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"I like to leverage both methods of communications when dealing in business. Sometimes, situations call for verbal communications and other times, written. As a rule of thumb, I tend to practice verbal communications, with written follow up or visa versa. Utilizing multiple methods creates repetition and therefore, change."

Anonymous Answer

"That's a tough one, as an analyst I love numbers. I believe it depends on the situation. If it's information or advice that needs to be documented, written communication is always best. If it's more casual or I believe there will be a back and forth conversation with numerous colleagues' input, then a meeting and verbal communication are best to start. But those conversations should be documented."

Rachelle's Answer

Your answer provides excellent balance. Very good! I have reworded slightly for impact.

"I believe this depends on the situation. If I am relaying information or advice that requires documentation, then written communication is best. If it's a more casual situation where there will be back and forth conversations, input, or involvement from numerous colleagues, I believe verbal communication is best."

Was this answer helpful? Yes or No

10.

Outside of work, what type of creative activities do you like to pursue?

A true creative minded person will have outside activities aside from what's happening in the workplace. Tell the interviewer about the variety of ways in which you express your creativity.

Rachelle's Answer #1

"Outside of work I like to attend dance classes and I also attend the odd paint and sip wine nights at a local wine shop. I also enjoy reading as a way of nurturing my creative side."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"Outside of work I love to explore my creative side. I practice photography for fun. As an avid reader, I also explore writing. Cooking is also an art for me and I try to incorporate creativity into the fun meals I prepare for family and friends."

Anonymous Answer

"I love to cook for my family and try new recipes. I am always trying to find new things to keep my kids interested in what's inside their school lunchbox."

Rachelle's Answer

Fun! Interesting school lunchboxes are a creative feat!

Was this answer helpful? Yes or No

11.

List the top 3 skills that you have acquired in your last role.

You have likely gained many valuable skills in your career. Share with the interviewer which skills you value the most. Be sure to include skills that will potentially benefit this potential new employer.

Rachelle's Answer #1

"In the past few years I was able to upgrade my education while still working full time. The biggest skill that I gained was my ability to multi-task as I worked the dual role of employee and student. I also have strong skills in a variety of Microsoft programs such as PowerPoint and Excel."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"Here are some additional skills to mention, that may be transferable to any role:

- Experience leading others
- Ability to motivate a team
- Experience in giving positive feedback

I have also learned about developing relationships with other departments and getting someone to understand your perspective of the situation while acknowledging theirs. I have also learned about the training of junior team members. I've learned to prepare detailed process notes and take the time to (1) explain the process and most importantly, (2) why we do it."

How do you handle stress on the job?

Are you someone who is able to handle stress on the job? How do you manage the stressful times? Talk to the interviewer about your ability to manage pressure in the workplace.

Rachelle's Answer #1

"I handle stress very well and when you call my references, they will attest to this fact. When I am under pressure on the job, I focus on the task at hand and make sure to not get distracted. Staying on deadline is very helpful and I will delegate when necessary to alleviate some stress."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"Stress is part of any demanding job and I embrace it to the fullest. I take good care of myself personally and prioritize my workload to maintain a healthy balance in my stress levels."

Anonymous Answer

"I plan and prepare ahead of time where possible, for example, when the end of the month is approaching. I keep open communication with my team members and manager. I remember that I am only one person, and I can only produce what I can during a working day. I manage the expectations of those making requests from me. I remain calm and focused on the task I'm doing at that time, and ensure I keep well-hydrated and fed."

Rachelle's Answer

These are all great examples! I have reworded this slightly to help with the flow.

"I manage stress by planning and preparing ahead of time, for instance, when month end is approaching. I also keep open communication with my team members and manager. I manage what is expected of me, remaining calm and focused on my tasks."

Was this answer helpful? Yes or No

What is your long-range career objective?

Interviewing and on-boarding is a costly and time consuming process for any company and hiring manager. Assure the interviewer that you are seeking a long term fit with your next employer.

Take a look at the career growth options with the company. If any of these stand out to you, it's a great idea to specifically mention them to the interviewer. Your expressed interest in those particular internal opportunities will solidify the fact that you are, indeed, seeking a long term fit with them.

Rachelle's Answer #1

"I am looking for a long-term fit in my next position. As you can see, I had strong progress and career growth in my previous company. I would love to see the same success with your company. I did notice on your website that you have global leadership opportunities. If I could work my way into a role like that, I would be thrilled."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"Long range, I would like to see myself making strong progress towards a leadership role with Lominger International. I sincerely hope this can happen within your organization as I understand that you choose to promote from within wherever possible."

14.

Do you have any questions for me about working for Lominger International?

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

"Thank you for asking - I do have a few questions. What is top of mind when it comes to filling this role? In addition, what types of career growth opportunities would follow this position? And lastly, do you have internal candidates who are also interviewing for this position?"

15.

Describe to me your method of convincing others to see things your way.

This answer can vary based on experience. Think about your personality and how you present your ideas to someone else, make sure you avoid words such as pushy, forceful. ie: Do you present facts and statistics and explain the results from your research? Do you influence them by coming up with inspirational concepts?

Rachelle's Answer #1

"When I would like others to see my way, I am sure to carefully lay out the ways that my idea will benefit them. I review those reasons, collect agreement from them, and then close them on the idea by having them verbally agree that it's the soundest decision or choice."

Rachelle's Answer #2

"Some additional ways that you can gain the agreement of others:

- Collect a few 'yes' answers from them before making your final request
- Ensure that your timing is always appropriate
- Get to know them and what they value / need. Build your proposition from there
- Have credibility, be honest, and logical"
