Question 2 of 31
Here at Palmetto Health, we want to give everyone a fair chance. However, salary is often commensurate with experience. How do you feel about someone with more experience than you having a higher salary but doing the same job?
Click To View Answers
How to Answer
Most employers do offer higher salary incentives to get more seasoned employees. This is not meant to devalue a person's knowledge or experience, but rather paying for more experience. It is important to note that the interviewer is not saying you will definitely make less than someone with more experience. Many times this question is to see how you respond and how badly you want a position. If an employee is willing to put in the work and earn the pay increase, employers often see them as someone worth investing in. This is a good time to ask what the beginning salary is and discuss options that are negotiable such as benefits and paid time off.

How to Answer
The interviewer wants to know that you can be diplomatic in the workplace, even when you may not agree with your leader.

Show the interviewer that it is possible for you to be a good team member, yet disagree with the leader from time to time. Explain that you believe everyone is entitled to their own professional opinion, yet capable of maintaining respect for each other at the same time.

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.

Question 5 of 31
Has there ever been a time that you felt singled out for your personal convictions? If so, what did you learn from that experience that allows you to feel empathy towards your patients and/or co-workers?

How to Answer
Bullying is unfortunately not exclusive to school-aged children. It is often seen among peers in the workplace. This question presents an opportunity for you to share a personal experience that may have caused you to feel vulnerable, but also gave you the chance to react in a way that is positive. Feeling like your personal beliefs are under scrutiny can be stressful. Your answer, especially if you have experienced this personally, will show the interviewer how you handle stress and how you may be able to diffuse a similar situation in the future.

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
