      Ryan's Answer #1

      "I define success by my ability to reach the goals that are set out for me. On a personal level, the things I wish to achieve in my life. On a work level, the targets that are set out for me as well as the professional development that I seek."

      Ryan's Answer #2

  2. 2.

    Have you ever been a customer of Nutrisystem? If so, describe your experience.

      The interviewer would like to know that you have experienced what it's like to be a customer / client of Nutrisystem. It is highly recommended that you try their services and /or products before your interview. 'I have never been a customer here' is never an acceptable answer. Your answer should remain positive and complimentary. Highlight the biggest take-away from your experience.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "My first experience as a customer of Nutrisystem was a couple of years ago when my friend recommend you. My experience was very positive and memorable which is a big reason why I applied here when I saw the job opening. I really got the impression that your employees were knowledgeable and highly trained."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "I am a regular client here and that's actually how I was able to find out about your job posting. My experiences at Nutrisystem have always been very positive and I look forward to seeing things from the other side."

  3. 3.

    What is your current salary?

      A potential employer will often base their offer on your current salary. You should be transparent about your most recent earnings and be prepared to back up any salary requests.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "I am currently earning a base salary of $78,000 plus a car allowance of $900/month and health benefits. I am looking for a competitive salary in my next position."

      Ryan'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."

  4. 4.

    Give me an example of a time when you went above and beyond.

      Display to the interviewer that you are able to do more that the bare minimum. Show that you are able to react appropriately when you see that your employer has a need that goes beyond your usual day-to-day expectations.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "Last week I noticed that my manager had not completed the schedule for the following week. Some of the staff were complaining that they didn't have their work schedule yet. Rather than going to my manager with the complaint, I offered to take on some of her work load so that she would have the time to complete the schedule. We worked together for a couple of overtime hours that day and were able to catch her up on everything. It felt good to help but also benefited me by way of organization."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "Going above and beyond is what I do on a regular basis. I do not insist on sticking with "the usual" when it comes to the level of service that my clients receive. I will always lend a hand to my coworkers when they need it, and I offer up a smile even on the tough days."

  5. 5.

    Although not a requirement, we prefer to hire those with some education in health, fitness, or nutrition. Walk me through any education and training you feel would add to your success with Nutrisystem.

      Your education background is likely listed on your resume; however, the interviewer is looking for you to expand on that experience. If you do not have any education directly related to health, fitness, or nutrition you can choose to discuss other areas of your education that will benefit Nutrisystem. These areas may include business training, technical skills, or sales training for instance.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "The majority of my education and training is surrounding sales and marketing. I am happy to spend time learning the health and nutrition portion of your business. Because I am well educated in business, I will be able to make a positive impact in this role right away through my strong up-selling and customer service skills."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "I recently graduated with my Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology. Some of the courses that I took included Motor Control and Learning, Introduction to Research, Statistical Inquiry, ​Human Anatomy and Physiology. I believe that these courses will benefit my performance when it comes to the programs and services that you offer here."

  6. 6.

    Who would you say inspires you?

      This question is something that you should have an answer ready for at all times.
      Perhaps you look up to a parent who was a hard worker or a teacher who encouraged you to become who you are today. Whomever this inspiring person may be, remember that it's an answer from the heart that the interviewer is looking for.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "My inspiration comes from my grandmother. She has spent every day of her life working hard and I have never once heard her complain about being tired and overworked. She taught me the value of a good reputation and I still seek out her opinion when I need inspiration."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "There are a few individuals in this industry who inspire me. I follow a few industry influencers such as Rich Froning, Jennifer Cohen, and Steve Kamb. They inspire me because they are smart, and encourage healthy eating and smart fitness regimes."

  7. 7.

    Tell me about a time when you effectively delegated tasks.

      The interviewer would like to know that you are capable of confidently delegating tasks to your employees or coworkers.

      A great leader is someone who can effectively manage their time by ensuring tasks are fairly divided while utilizing the strengths of others.
      Display to the interviewer that you have the wherewithal to recognize the strengths of your team by delegating tasks which compliment their individual skill sets.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "In my current position I was asked to put together a team for a special client project. I was able to handpick the team members and organize the project execution. I chose my strongest employees in a variety of areas. In our initial meeting, I delegated the tasks while explaining my reasoning. This was a great opportunity for me to show each team member that I had the utmost confidence in their abilities. I played to their strengths and it worked out really well. We delivered to our client on time and under budget."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "Every month I have a meeting with all team members to talk about our plan for the month and how we will delegate the work. It's a great strategy for us and everyone starts the month with laid out expectations."

  8. 8.

    Do you have experience in corrective discipline and terminations?

      Terminations and corrective discipline measures can be very difficult to do but, with experience, they do get easier. Talk to the interviewer about the extent of your experience with terminations and discipline.

      If you do have the experience: "I have been a part of individual terminations and group lay-offs throughout my career. I am comfortable with these types of tasks."

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "I have been a part of individual terminations and group lay-offs throughout my career. I am comfortable with these types of tasks."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "If you do not have the experience: "I have not been in a position to perform terminations or hold corrective discipline meetings; however, I would be willing to perform these types of tasks with a small amount of training and research."

  9. 9.

    We believe in leading by example at Nutrisystem and seek to hire those who put their health first. What is the best thing you've ever done for your own personal health?

      It's absolutely okay to give a personal answer for this type of interview question. Because Nutrisystem is focused on health and wellness, you should be open and real when it comes to your own personal journey. Discuss the best choice that you've made for your personal health and the positive impact that choice has had on your life.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "The best decision that I ever made for my own personal health was to quit smoking cigarettes. I achieved this 4 years ago and haven't looked back since. I feel so much more energy and of course it's helped my skin as well."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "The best habit that I started for myself was to go to bed early every day so that I could wake up earlier. I am more productive this way and sleep a lot better, too."

  10. 10.

    We believe in continually educating our staff at Nutrisystem. If we could offer you a course on any topic related to our business, what would you choose?

      The interviewer is digging a bit deeper to learn about your specific interests within their industry. Perhaps you already know a great deal about fitness but you want to refine your education in nutrition. Pick one area where you would choose to expand your knowledge, if given the opportunity. Close your answer by expressing appreciation for the potential opportunity.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "I have always had a keen interest in fitness and am curious to learn more about the ways in which nutrition directly affects the body. The right foods can actually heal certain ailments and that is really interesting to me. If I could take a course on any topic related to the health industry, I would definitely choose a nutrition based topic. I am even more excited to work for Nutrisystem knowing that you place so much value on continued education!"

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "I love this question as I am a huge fan of continued education. If I could take any coursework related to the health industry, I would take something related to holistic herbal studies."

  11. 11.

    Rate your communication skills from 1-10 with proper examples backing your given rating.

      On a scale of 1-10, how skilled are you in communication? Why did you choose that particular rating for yourself?

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "I rate my communication skills as a 9/10 as I will, on occasion, have times when I am not as clear as I would like to be. My supervisor and co-workers will attest to my clear and concise communication skills. Because I am an open leader, my team will let me know if I need to clarify anything."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "I will rate myself an 8.5 because I consider myself a strong communicator. It is the foundation of all success in business. I am always striving to be a better communicator so I leave the rest of the scale as an aspirational measure."

  12. 12.

    At Nutrisystem we believe that health is more than just exercising. If you could recommend 3 habits to our clients, for achieving optimal health, what would you recommend?

      The interviewer wants to ensure that you have a well-rounded idea of health, which will benefit Nutrisystem customers. You can discuss the best advice that you would give a potential client or talk about some healthy habits that you follow yourself.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "I understand the importance of guiding customers to optimal health through a well-rounded approach.

      The interviewer would like to get to know you a little bit more from a personal perspective.
