Answer Examples

1.

Would you say you are a better verbal or written communicator?

In which manner do you prefer to communicate - written or verbal? Discuss your preference with the interviewer and support your answer.

Ryan's Answer #1

"I prefer verbal communication because I feel that with written communication, a lot can be misread due to lack of tone, fluctuation, expression and body language. I will always choose a face to face conversation whenever possible."

Ryan's Answer #2

"I do not lean one way or another when it comes to verbal or written communication. Both are equally important to me. If I have to choose just one, I will choose written communication as one can always look back on written communication for reference."

2.

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 Vodafone Egypt Telecommunications S.A.E..

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."

3.

Tell me about a time when you improved communication between yourself and a co-worker or client.

Possessing the skills to improve communication in the workplace is a very valuable asset. Talk to the interviewer about your ability to enhance communication in the workplace. Be sure to tie in how your skills will benefit Vodafone Egypt Telecommunications S.A.E..

Ryan's Answer #1

"In my current position I have one particular client who was an exceptionally brief communicator. If I asked two questions, he would answer just one. I learned quickly that he would not acknowledge anything for which he did not have a direct answer. I began to ask him questions in a different way. For example, I would say 'Do you have an answer for me on question X?' and he would say yes or no. We would then go from there. This method was an effective form of communication for that particular client. I have a few approaches that will be useful when working for Vodafone Egypt Telecommunications S.A.E.."

Ryan's Answer #2

"I had a client who often missed email updates. It caused us to cross our wires a few times. I suggested that we book a quick call every week to review any outstanding areas that need to be addressed. This process worked well for us, and I believe it would work we will Vodafone Egypt Telecommunications S.A.E. as well."

4.

At Vodafone Egypt TelecommunicationsE., 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."

5.

At Vodafone Egypt TelecommunicationsE., we give everyone the opportunity to be a mentor. Have you had the opportunity to teach an important skill to a co-worker?

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 three 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. I try to always invite them out for coffee so not only they have a friendly face in the office, but also so I can be a resource to them. I was promoted from their role, so I am always happy to share how I did it on such a fast timeline and what I've found effective that can help them be a change-maker in the company, too."

6.

Vodafone Egypt TelecommunicationsE. encourages continued education. Tell me about a time when you took on a new course to study in order to improve your own work performance.

Once you are in your career, it certainly doesn't mean that you need to stop learning. There are many job-related courses available. Talk to the interviewer about the last time you took advantage of these available courses. Discuss your interest in continuing your education even after joining Vodafone Egypt Telecommunications S.A.E..

Ryan's Answer #1

"Our company offered the Sandler Sales program to anyone in the company who was interested. I took this workshop in 2014 and really enjoyed it. My sales increased by 23% that year."

Ryan's Answer #2

"Last year, I worked towards my Project Manager certification while working full time. That experience alone greatly increased my multitasking skills. The PM Certification is a great addition to my already existing management skill set."

7.

Work volumes can become very high at Vodafone Egypt TelecommunicationsE.. How do you handle a larger than average workload?

The interviewer wants to be assured that you can handle the workload required of you in this position and that you will not become overwhelmed if/when workloads unexpectedly increase. When workloads increase, stress levels do too. How do you react?

Ryan's Answer #1

"When I have a large workload on my plate, I do not stress over the tasks that are in front of me. Rather, I make a simple plan of which tasks are a high priority and which tasks are a lower priority. The higher priority tasks, I complete first. Through this system, I can focus on my tasks individually, rather than stress out by the multitude of tasks ahead of me."

Ryan's Answer #2

"Here are some suggestions on how to handle a large workload:

- List your tasks and prioritize them
- Think of which tasks add to the company's bottom line, and start there (Closest to the money!)
- Exhale. Relax for a minute and collect yourself
- Organize your tasks by which ones you can complete independently and which ones you need help with
- Take sufficient breaks, so you do not exhaust yourself
- Communicate your struggles with your leadership or team"

8.

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!"

9.

How would you describe your written communication skills?

Being a clear communicator, in written form, is a crucial skill to master. Have you taken any courses in communication and writing? Are you confident in your written communication skills? Talk to the interviewer about your written communication abilities and support your answer with a brief example or story.

Ryan's Answer #1

"I would describe my written communication skills as very strong and would rate myself as a 9/10. I have always had a penchant for writing and have taken university courses related to communication, writing, and journalism."

Ryan's Answer #2

"My written communication skills are solid. I often utilize written communications as a follow up to verbal communications. They provide a great resource for associates to go back to and reference, plus might answer any questions that come up along the way."

10.

What do you know about the culture at Vodafone Egypt TelecommunicationsE.?

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 Vodafone Egypt Telecommunications S.A.E. will work for you.

Ryan's Answer #1

"I have researched Vodafone Egypt Telecommunications S.A.E. 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 Vodafone Egypt Telecommunications S.A.E.. 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!"

11.

How do you handle a situation where your supervisor does not properly communicate information to you?

You cannot force others to communicate with you in a way that you would always prefer. Talk to the interviewer about a time that you have handled a supervisor who does not correspond with you in a way that you like. The way you answer this question will also set the stage for how you wish to be communicated with should you join Vodafone Egypt Telecommunications S.A.E..

Ryan's Answer #1

"Whenever I have had a supervisor who does not properly communicate with me, I try to learn their style of communication and emulate it. Sometimes you have to relate to others in their own style to be understood."

Ryan's Answer #2

"There are times in business when this happens. I make sure I regroup with the supervisor to explain the strain a gap in communication causes on the team. I then go into mending mode, ensuring the information that needs to be communicated gets disseminated out to the team."

12.

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."

13.

When entering a new job, describe how you build relationships with your new coworkers and supervisors.

Due to a wide variety of personalities, relationships can take time to form. How do you ensure that you have a strong line of communication with your co-workers and supervisors, right from the start?

Ryan's Answer #1

"I understand that some relationships come quickly and others take time to nurture. When starting a new job all that I can do is be my true self and let my personality, integrity, and reliability speak for itself."

Ryan's Answer #2

"First impressions are everything, and I make a strong attempt to build relationships with all of my peers right up front when starting a new job. I schedule meetings to make an introduction and ask discovery questions to learn how I can best support them when working together. It is also important to gain insight into their preferred methods of communications."

14.

Tell me about a time when your communication skills greatly benefited your team.

Strong communication skills are required to be an effective leader. How have your communication skills helped your team in the past, and how will they help the team at Vodafone Egypt Telecommunications S.A.E.?

Ryan's Answer #1

"My team is made up of great communicators whom I have trained to take every piece of information and break it down into the simplest factor. This approach has greatly reduced in-house issues related to communication."

Ryan's Answer #2

"We recently rolled out a large organizational change. I took a very transparent approach to communication throughout the process. I asked the team for feedback and buy-in early in the process. We discussed some challenges that could be expected. Therefore, when the time came to roll out the change, there were very few surprises. It was a success!"

15.

We value communication at Vodafone Egypt TelecommunicationsE.. 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."
