Question 1 of 30

How many times have you been late to work this year?

This question assesses your level of professionalism and scope of the big picture regarding how one employee's attendance can affect the team. But it also assesses your honesty when answering this question and watches to see if this question triggers stress responses.

Talk about the tools and resources you utilize to plan for your morning, making sure your car is in top shape and has a full tank of gas, planning your commute for traffic interruptions, staying on top of train schedule changes, and how exhibiting every measure you take to manage your time. If you did have attendance issues for some time, recognize this weakness as a growth opportunity, and tell them how you have proactively improved in this regard.
