Magna Infotech Private Limited Interview Questions

  1. 1.

    Have you ever broken a confidentiality agreement?

      Companies will have confidentiality agreements for a variety of reasons. These could be to protect their trade secrets or to ensure that you do not bring clients over on the occasion that you leave their company. Talk to the interviewer about your thoughts on confidentiality agreements.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I never have, to my knowledge, broken a confidentiality agreement. Despite my reasons for leaving a position, I would never choose to hurt a previous employer in any way."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "Confidentiality agreements are necessary and important to protect an organization. I understand the need for confidentiality and take those factors very seriously. I have never broken the trust of my employer."

  2. 2.

    How would you rate your performance in this interview so far?

      The interviewer is looking for your honest thoughts on how you feel about your interview performance. Be truthful and transparent, even if you think that the interview could have gone better.

      If you feel that your performance in the interview is going well: "I believe that this interview has been informative, and I am happy with my performance. Is there anything that I can clarify for you from this conversation?"

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I believe that this interview has been informative, and I am happy with my performance. Is there anything that I can clarify for you from this conversation?"

      Rachelle's Answer

      "If you feel that your performance in the interview is not going well: "I am not sure if I have been able to portray myself 100% accurately in this interview; although, I am trying my best. If there is anything more I can clarify for you, I would be happy to do so."

  3. 3.

    What type of manager brings out the best in you?

      The interviewer wants to see that you are self-aware and understand the type of manager or employer that brings out the best in you. Some individuals prefer a close working relationship with a lot of accountability while others prefer space and autonomy. If you are unsure of the management style of the interviewing company, try to leave your answer as open as possible. You can certainly ask the interviewer to describe their management style.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I have worked with a wide range of personalities and management styles with great success. If I could express a preference, I feel that I am best in an independent and autonomous environment. Can you describe the management style here?"

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I work best with managers who are highly communicative and approachable. I don't enjoy working in a hierarchy based environment as I find it does not offer room for new ideas and creative thinking. How would you describe your management style?"

  4. 4.

    We have a very specific personality type that fits well with the strong corporate culture at Magna Infotech Private Limited. Describe your personality in 3 words.

      This question is a high-stress question if you are not prepared to discuss your personality, and characteristics. Rather than freezing up during your interview or saying something you regret, take a few minutes to jot down some ideas before your meeting.

      Review Magna Infotech Private Limited website and see if you can source any recurring keywords in their job postings or 'About Us' section. Any recurring themes or keywords will give you a great idea of the type of personality and characteristics that Magna Infotech Private Limited is looking for.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "If I could describe my personality in 3 words I would say that I am communicative, helpful, and enthusiastic. I know that Magna Infotech Private Limited is looking for individuals who work well as part of a team, and someone who brings a great amount of energy. That is me! I would be a great fit for the culture you have created here."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "Here are some other words you can use to describe your personality:

      - Adaptable
      - Considerate
      - Diligent
      - Inventive
      - Persistent
      - Resourceful
      - Sensible"

  5. 5.

    When have you had to change a major component of your project due to new information being presented?

      Being able to swivel the focus of your project is a necessary skill for your success in most careers. Talk to the interviewer about a time when a significant change occurred on a project. How did you handle the implementation of the new information?

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I had a large project last month that was nearly complete when the client called to say that the dimensions provided were incorrect. Because of this, our team had to re-do the entire proposal. It took us an additional four days of work but, in the end, the client was delighted with our work, and it resulted in new opportunities with them."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I had worked with a VP in the company, the CEO, and a member of the board to craft a strategic national roll-out plan that included which companies and pitches I would be responsible for, and what they would handle. Two months later, after working on the strategy each week as a collaborative team, I was informed that we were putting a pause on the project until further notice. The executives thought the company wasn't ready for such big clients yet, so instead, I had to scale the national roll-out back to be a local market strategy. After the initial sting and frustration of pulling out of the project, I was able to use that same framework to plan local market roll-outs in several major cities effectively. It proved to be a good learning experience, overall."

  6. 6.

    If you could start your career over again, what direction would you take?

      A hiring manager will be able to tell a lot about your personality by learning about your other career interests. If you could do anything over, what would you do, and why?

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I certainly do not regret the direction I have taken my career; however, if I had to start over in a new direction completely I would likely pursue my Degree in Education and become a teacher. Both of my parents were teachers, and they seemed to have a very fulfilling career. I enjoy coaching and leading others so, any tasks in my current career that related to these skills, are very welcome."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I am delighted with the direction my career has taken. If I could change anything I would perhaps have furthered my education to include a unique focus; however, I have no regrets!"

  7. 7.

    How would you describe your relationship with your customers or clients?

      Do you value your client and customer relationships? How do you nurture them to ensure that they are happy and continue to come back? Talk to the interviewer about your strategy for building strong customer and client relationships.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "My customer and client relationships are open and honest. I believe that the more upfront and transparent you are with your clients, the more likely they are to return. I most definitely value my clients and am sure to nurture those relationships as much as possible."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I have strong relationships with my clients and customers. I treat them with respect and am sure to utilize their feedback in ways that make myself, and the organization, better."

  8. 8.

    Tell me about a time when you took on a new course to study in order to improve your own work performance.

      Once you are in your career, it certainly doesn't mean that you need to stop learning. There are many job-related courses available. Talk to the interviewer about the last time you took advantage of these available courses.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "Our company offered the Sandler Sales program to anyone in the company who was interested. I took this workshop in 2014 and enjoyed it. My sales increased by 23% that year."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I took a one-day seminar in Microsoft Excel. I already knew the basics, but my boss like using macros and pivot tables, and I was spending a lot of time reading the support section to figure out how to use them. The course was very informative."

  9. 9.

    How do you evaluate success among your team members?

      When you are leading a team, it is imperative to be aware of the level of success that each team member is experiencing. One underperforming team player can drag down the entire group. Talk to the interviewer about how you can stay aware of each team members' success.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I have a very in-depth and successful system for evaluating success among my team members. I check in twice per week with each member of my team. On Monday's - to set our goals together. Then, on Friday's, to discuss any successes and challenges. I have them self-evaluate, and then we create a plan for success for the upcoming week. I evaluate their success based on their follow through and willingness to work hard to reach their goals."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I typically have KPI's (key performance indicators) in place to measure the success of each of the members of the team. I also manage our overall success in working together. For example, are we hitting on key initiatives within the department, developing each other for succession planning and having fun along the way!"

  10. 10.

    How would you prefer to be compensated?

      Are you looking for a compensation structure based primarily on salary, commission, or a blend of both? Discuss with the hiring manager your compensation preferences.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I am currently compensated primarily on a base pay of $60,000 with the opportunity to earn a quarterly bonus based on the company's profits. I would like to be compensated similarly in my next position."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I am currently making a salary with a bonus incentive on a quarterly and annual basis. I would like to continue down that path but am open to exploring other compensation components such as commission, or working on a draw system."

  11. 11.

    This position with Magna Infotech Private Limited requires strong research skills. What is the first resource you turn to when you need to research a person, business, or topic?

      The interviewer would like to know that you can source information when and where you need it. In this industry, and with Magna Infotech Private Limited, you must be in-the-know and on top of your client's needs at all times. Talk about where you first go for information when you need it the most.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "When researching, my go-to source is usually LinkedIn. This website offers me a plethora of information whenever I need it. I can research clients, their businesses, their backgrounds, and their competitors in one place. I find LinkedIn to be a very reliable, up-to-date, and convenient source."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "For me, when researching, using a reliable source is key. For that reason. my resources will always be a legitimate news website or books published by known authors."

  12. 12.

    At Magna Infotech Private Limited we seek to hire those who can read between the lines in order to uncover our client's potential needs. Give me an example of how you have successfully done this.

      The interviewer would like to know that you understand the nuances that come with this job. When you work for Magna Infotech Private Limited you must be able to think independently and out of the box at all times. This type of thinking will increase client happiness, sales results, and will help to expand your portfolio. Give one real-life example of how you helped a client by reading further into their potential needs.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "One example I can give is when one of my larger clients went through a corporate restructuring last year. I was able to help them fill in some gaps in their service needs as I saw potential shifts in their business. Because I have assisted many clients with restructuring projects in the past, I was able to foresee some of the roadblocks they may face and offered my assistance there. The client was very pleased with my proactive approach, and I was able to upsell additional services."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "With each new client that I take on, I conduct a detailed questionnaire with my primary contact. I ask tough questions regarding the pain points in their business. From these answers, I can predict some of their needs faster than they can. I believe this is because it's harder to see your needs when you are directly in the middle of the scenario. Sometimes, it's easier for outsiders to uncover your business' most significant needs."

  13. 13.

    In this role with Magna Infotech Private Limited you will be required to make regular presentations to our clients. How comfortable are you with public speaking, and creating PowerPoint presentations?

      If you know ahead of time that presentations are going to be a part of this position, feel free to bring a previously crafted PowerPoint presentation with you, on a tablet or iPad. Otherwise, be prepared with some examples that include the number of people you have presented to, what the range of topics has been, and what the outcome was.

      You can also make your answer very clear by rating yourself from 1-10 on your PowerPoint and public speaking skills. If you have any formal training in public speaking, be sure to talk about that as well.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I am very comfortable with public speaking and would rate myself as an advanced user in PowerPoint. I have attended multiple Toastmaster classes to perfect my public speaking skills. In my current position, I will present to groups from 3 people to 90, ranging from 'lunch and learns' with my internal team to the entire department for my client. I receive consistently positive feedback on my presentations because I like to keep them engaging through the use of analogies and sharp visuals."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I am an intermediate user in PowerPoint and have no problem improving my skills to an advanced level. When it comes to public speaking, my experience is limited; however, enough to know that I do not suffer from stage fright. I would very much enjoy further exposure to public speaking and the delivery of presentations."

  14. 14.

This factor makes your company a big stand-out to me because I am serious about working for an organization that is aware of their social impact."

      Rachelle's Answer

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I have conducted a great amount of research on Magna Infotech Private Limited before coming here today. I believe that your product range is vast and it would attract a very diverse set of clientele. Is this correct?
