1.

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

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.

Ryan'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."

Ryan'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."

2.

Do you have difficulty working in a team environment?

Team collaboration is a key part of most jobs so it's important that you give an overall positive reply to this question. If you have difficulty working in a team environment, that is okay; however, you need to show the interviewer that you are capable of offering flexibility between a group setting and working autonomously. In the end, the interviewer wants to be assured that you are capable of working positively, in a team environment.

If you love working in a team environment: "Personally, I thrive in a team environment. I see team projects as an opportunity to learn new skills!"

Ryan's Answer #1

"Personally, I thrive in a team environment. I see team projects as an opportunity to learn new skills!"

Ryan's Answer #2

3.

What do you think our company's biggest challenge is?

What is this particular company's biggest challenge, and how do you think that you can assist?

Ryan's Answer #1

"After speaking with you further about the company, and this role, I believe that the biggest challenge this company has faced is in hiring the right talent. I have a strong background in recruitment as well as management and do feel that I can assist with this hurdle. Having the right team players is imperative to a company's success and, if we can tackle that, I see great things happening."

Ryan's Answer #2

"That is a tough question because I have not spend time working within your organization. Knowing the industry, my best guess would be that the biggest challenge is the same challenge any marketing company faces, and that is keeping up with the fast paced changes in marketing, advertising, and social media."

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.

Ryan'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."

Ryan's Answer #2

"Presenting to large groups is a big part of successfully rolling out large communications to teams organization wide. I have experience preparing the deck to be presented to ensure it is simple and thorough. I utilize different communication techniques to make a presentation fun, interesting, and engaging."

5.

How do you like to be recognized for your accomplishments?

We all like to be recognized in some way for our accomplishments in the workplace. Share with the interviewer how you would like to be recognized for your hard work. Through gifts? Financial perks? Public recognition? Kind words? Title promotions?

Ryan's Answer #1

"I am very much an over-achiever and find that the best way for me to be recognized for a job well done is to be given words of kindness and recognition. I am easily encouraged and the best reward for me is to know that my hard work is being noticed."

Ryan's Answer #2

"I am definitely driven by some friendly competition! I like internally driven contests where I have the ability to win small financial incentives."

Show that you are proud of yourself and your career accomplishments!

Ryan's Answer #1

"The greatest accomplishment in my career was graduating University as an honors student while still working full time in a related field. I was top of my class, and working full time. This showed me that I am able to dedicate myself to my career, and reach the goals that I set for myself. It felt great to accomplish so much and be recognized for my dedication."

How do you deal with 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.

Ryan'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."

Ryan's Answer #2

"I try to avoid conflict, but I have a high tolerance for discomfort. I've learned to try to let the people in question sort it out, but have no problem rolling up my sleeves and diving in to help mediate the problem."

11.

When have you taught someone important skills or knowledge, in the workplace?

Interviewers want to hear that you have experience teaching or mentoring other employees one-on-one.

You may have taught a new hire all of your department's standard processes. Perhaps you taught a long standing employee how to use Excel. You may have mentored an employee who was struggling to hit their monthly goals. All of these scenarios are great examples to draw on. Better yet, if you have personally seen someone struggling with workplace skills or knowledge, approached them, and offered to mentor them, it is a shining example of leadership!

Whatever your scenario may be, tell the interviewer what you helped the person with, while highlighting the positive outcome of their skills improvement.

Ryan's Answer #1

"Last week our company introduced a new module in our SAP system. I could see that our contracted HR Assistant was having some troubles with the new module. I was familiar with it already so I offered to help him learn the module. We spent his lunch hour for the next 3 days working on it. He perfected the module and our company was so impressed with his dedication to learning that they are now trying to find room to hire him on a full time, permanent basis."

Ryan's Answer #2

"Absolutely! In each of my two previous roles, I have been tasked with leading a small team. I have worked on everything from appointment setting and overcoming objections to price negotiations with those respective teams. What's more, I always look for an opportunity to connect with the new folks to the team to ensure them that I can be a resource to them."

In your opinion, what has been the biggest breakthrough in social media marketing as of late?

"I think that the whole idea of Facebook Live is a game changer. This puts large and small brands in the same space where they can offer free and direct communication with their consumers. The options are now endless! Virtual tours, live give-away's, and private looks backstage....it's really incredible."

Ryan's Answer #2

"I would say that the biggest change that social media marketing will see in the next few months is the decline of visible organic content and the extra push for paid or boosted content to have priority."

14.

Ryan's Answer #2

"I work well in a high pressure, demanding environment that requires you to work smart and make your mark. I am competitive in nature and love to be personally challenged."

15.

How do you think your early career will help you succeed in this position?

Ryan's Answer #1

"I have been working since I was just 14 years old. My first job was as a shop hand for my father who was a mechanic. I had to sweep, clean, greet customers and order parts. It was a great way for me to get my hands dirty and I was taught excellent customer service skills from an early age. Everything that I learned during that time has helped me to stay grounded and humble in my career."

Ryan's Answer #2

"My early career taught me great work ethic and positively shaped my communication skills. I look forward to applying these skills to this role with your company."
