1.

What do you know about the culture at Time Dotcom Bhd.?

Company culture and fit is a significant factor when considering a career move. Assure the interviewer that you have put thought, research, and consideration of how the company culture at Time Dotcom Bhd. will work for you.

Ryan's Answer #1

"I have researched Time Dotcom Bhd. through your social media channels, and on glassdoor.com. Your employees have great things to say, and overall it seems that you have fun while you work. I am looking forward to joining an organization, like yours, that is upbeat and thoughtful with an eye on helping the community at the same time."

Ryan's Answer #2

"I read many positive reviews online about the organization level and culture at Time Dotcom Bhd.. You offer great incentives to keep people motivated, and it seems to be the type of fast-paced environment that values innovation and performance. My type of place!"

2.

Give me an example of a time when you had to troubleshoot to solve a problem?

Troubleshooting is like reverse engineering - it takes skill, effort, and patience. You have to understand the problem to know how to work backward from it to find a solution.
Knowing how to solve problems with technical equipment is always a solid skill, and a great way to demonstrate your example. Show that you are insightful in your approach.

Ryan's Answer #1

"Last week, while working in our new SAP system, I was receiving a repeated error. I entered in a few different codes, but that didn't solve the issue. I then did a hard reset on my system. Then, I referred to the user guide for additional suggestions. It took a little time and patience, but I was able to resolve the issue without calling the support line and waiting on hold."

Ryan's Answer #2

"We do not have an IT department in my current office so whenever an issue arises, I am the person that my team calls. Troubleshooting is fun for me - it's like a new challenge every time. Google and IT related forums are often my best friend!"

3.

When a major problem arises, what is your first reaction?

The interviewer wants to know if your reactions to problems reflect maturity and professionalism. How you react will significantly determine how you fit with their existing team at Time Dotcom Bhd..

Perhaps your computer crashes and you realize you may have just lost all of your hard work. Or maybe you are limited on time and have a deadline rapidly approaching. Demonstrate to the interviewer that you take a very methodical approach to problem-solving, rather than reacting in an impulsive way when a problem occurs.

Ryan's Answer #1

"When a major problem arises, my first instinct is to take a step back and absorb what just happened. I then go into 'brainstorm' mode, jotting down potential ways to resolve the issue. From there, I can generally use a pros and cons list to determine the best course of action for a fast and amicable resolution."

Ryan's Answer #2

"I have taught myself to become much calmer with my first reactions when problems arise. Now, I will step back and review my options for solving the problem rather than allow myself to become frustrated."

4.

At your current or former place of employment, how important was communication and dealing with others?

Are you accustomed to working in an environment where clear communication with others is critical? Talk to the interviewer about your most recent work and how communication played a part.

Ryan's Answer #1

"In my previous role, healthy communication was required to protect the safety of our employees. We transported dangerous goods, and our management required that we all take specific workshops on communication and documentation. Because of this, my communication skills are solid."

Ryan's Answer #2

"There is not a healthy level of communication in my current workplace. This is part of the reason why I am seeking new employment. I highly value clear communication. How do you encourage strong communication between employees here at Time Dotcom Bhd.?"

5.

We value communication at Time Dotcom Bhd.. 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."

6.

What experience do you have using team-based messaging applications?

There are many options for communication software and messaging applications. Give the interviewer a brief overview of the applications you are experienced in and assure them that you can learn their internal system, should it be new to you.

Ryan's Answer #1

"I have used a variety of team-based messaging applications. I am best versed in Slack and Freedcamp. No matter which system you use I am sure that I can pick it up very quickly."

Ryan's Answer #2

"I do not have a lot of experience with team-based messaging applications besides MSN Messenger years ago. I do pick up on technology quickly and have no concerns when it comes to my ability to learn. What team-based messaging applications do you use at Time Dotcom Bhd.?"

7.

How can Time Dotcom Bhd. motivate you, as a leader?

Your motivation may be that the idea of success and achievement drives you. Perhaps you are working towards career advancement. Take some time to think about what truly motivates you.

Ryan's Answer #1

"I am motivated by words of encouragement and compensation based rewards. This could be a competition for a gift card or a contest where I can earn a bigger holiday party budget for my team. Being a leader comes naturally to me, so I don't find it to be a taxing task very often. My competitive side keeps me motivated, as well."

Ryan's Answer #2

"I am motivated by a company that is ethical and strives to do the right thing. I am at my best when I am trusted and allowed to make decisions to remain on the straight and narrow."

8.

We appreciate innovative thinking at Time Dotcom Bhd.. When have you created a new product or service?

Using your creative mind, have you ever introduced an employer to a new product or service opportunity? Talk to the interviewer about a time when you have created a new product or service.

Ryan's Answer #1

"In my previous role I was fortunate enough to introduce my company to the idea of a gold level service where, in addition to our general customer service, we added on additional options. Our customer base responded very positively, and we kept the program running for a few years."

Ryan's Answer #2

"I am newer to my career, so I have not had a lot of opportunities to create a new product or service in the workplace. In my personal life, a lot of my neighbors have pets. I started a neighborhood dog walking, sitting, and vacation service when I was in high school. It was highly popular in the summer. I made some money and helped my neighbors enjoy their vacations. Plus, I love animals."

9.

What excites you?

Every hiring manager wants to know how to keep you best motivated and excited about the job. Talk to the interviewer about what excites you and keeps you happy at work.

Ryan's Answer #1

"I have a healthy competitive edge, even if its a personal competition. For me, I am excited and motivated by winning; whether that be winning over a new client, exceeding my KPI's or being recognized for a job well done. I am also motivated and energized through great teamwork."

Ryan's Answer #2

"I get excited when new challenges are presented in the workplace. This could include a new program, a new customer initiative, a sales contest, or even the training of a new employee."

10.

When have you shown a willingness to learn a new method or new approach to solving a problem?

It is a great skill to have when you can approach a problem in a new way. Discuss with the interviewer your ability to approach a problem using new methods.

Ryan's Answer #1

"When our company came under new management last year many new methods and policies came into place. I was able to learn many new approaches to our challenges in sales and customer management. I quite enjoyed the process."

Ryan's Answer #2

"Our company switched to an SAP system last year that I was not familiar with. I enrolled myself in a 4-week evening course at our local community college so that I could quickly learn the system without it affecting my performance at work. It helped a great deal, and my employers were impressed with my willingness to learn."

11.

If you were given a choice, which work related task would you leave for last? Why?

Often we will leave the tasks that we don't like for last in the act of procrastination. Other times, we will mindfully move a particular responsibility for last because we feel that it makes the most sense. Help the interviewer to determine which personality type you are by answering this question.

Ryan's Answer #1

"If given a choice, I would leave my documentation tasks for last. I say this because I like to spend my time selling and hitting targets so anything to do with documentation during business hours - I feel takes away from my business development tasks. I do understand the importance of it, though."

Ryan's Answer #2

"I tend to leave the hardest assignments for last. It is not because I dread them, but because I can make a lot more people happy by completing their small requests first and getting them back to work."

12.

How often do you discuss work with your colleagues, in order to think up new systems and styles of working?

Do you use your creative mind with your colleagues to discuss ideas and systems in the workplace? Talk to the interviewer about how you have used creative thinking in the workplace and how this will benefit Time Dotcom Bhd., if hired.

Ryan's Answer #1

"I have a policy with my team that if they have an innovative and helpful idea they can bring it to me at any time. If their idea or system is something that I think could work, we then create a plan together to present it to our head office. This policy has generated some powerful ideas in our office over the past three years including a work-share program and some health and safety initiatives."

Ryan's Answer #2

"I think it is important to discuss work with colleagues in a collaborative nature to encourage all types of ideas to come forth. Often, when people put their heads together, they will create something better than something one individual could have done alone."

13.

Do you prefer doing work on a routine day-to-day basis or do you prefer mixing up your routine occasionally?

Are you the individual who prefers to know what the routine will be, or do you thrive on the challenge and excitement of unpredictability? The interviewer would like to know if your work style will be a fit with Time Dotcom Bhd..

Ryan's Answer #1

"I prefer working in a more predictable environment because I can be more effective in my tasks. With that said, I can certainly work in an unpredictable environment from time to time."

Ryan's Answer #2

"I like to have a bit of both, honestly. I have a general schedule that I follow in the morning including a team huddle, setting objectives for the day, following up with clients, and then setting new meetings with prospects. That said, the in-between of that framework is always pretty unpredictable. In sales, you never know what might happen, especially when selling a good as I do. More often than not, there is some snafu throughout the day (or twenty) so that variety keeps me on my toes, engaged, and excited."

14.

Tell me about a time when you undertook a project that demanded a lot of initiative.

This interview question allows you to demonstrate your ability to be a self-starter. Show the interviewer that you are a motivated individual by telling the interviewer about a specific time that you took the lead. Include details of your project timeline, which you led, or what you had to teach yourself for the project to be successful. Be sure to complete your answer by telling the interview what the outcome was.

Ryan's Answer #1

"We recently had a major inventory count requested of us by the corporate head office. At the time, our Manager was away on holidays. No one quite knew where to start or who should take the lead. I took the initiative to lead my co-workers through the inventory project. I taught myself the tracking software in a short amount of time and created a schedule for the inventory counts, so everyone knew what was expected of them. We completed the project three days ahead of schedule! It was a great success."

Ryan's Answer #2

"We recently switched over our entire leadership team during the process of changing over our team's compensation plan. I took the initiative to manage the culture during this time by reaching out to all associates individually to gain their feedback on what compensation they would like to see in our change. I explained some possible options and gained their feedback on the new leadership team. This, with the day to day responsibilities, demanded strong time management and initiative. However, it leads the associates through a seamless compensation transition while gaining strong feedback on leadership changes."

15.

At Time Dotcom Bhd., we value calculated risk. When have you taken an unusual risk in the workplace? What was the outcome?

The interviewer wants to know that you are capable of taking calculated risks in the workplace and that you understand the difference between a calculated risk and a risky choice.

Think of a work-related risk, like trying out a new idea to solve a problem. You may even take on a new responsibility that you're not trained in, which is a little bit of a risk. Give an example that shows you are thoughtful and strategic when taking risks. Do you weigh the pros and cons first? Are you considering how it will affect others? Do you consider the company's bottom line? These are all things that the interviewer will be looking for in your answer.

Ryan's Answer #1

"Last month I took an unusual risk by taking an outside sales call when I am an inside sales employee. My client asked me to meet him because he had some additional business he was thinking of giving our company, but he wanted to make sure we had strong rapport before he handed the business over. I met him in person, and we got along so well that he gave me an additional $1M in annual business. I knew it was a risk because my boss preferred that I stay on inside sales accounts but I knew the reward was greater than the potential risk, so I took it. Well worth it!"

Ryan's Answer #2

"I certainly took a risk by leaving my strategic account management position to take an entry sales position in another organization. While it was risky, I wanted to get into sales and a startup environment. My family thought I was nuts. It worked out great, as I got basic sales experience, and then was promoted within months and have since been headhunted out of that position to a strategic senior account executive role."
