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 UK Ltd.
"Certainly, completing routine, day-to-day tasks is easier, in the sense that it's more predictable and less stressful, but I also believe it doesn't allow one to grow very much professionally. I believe the best environment is a mix of both - enough day-to-day that one can perfect an approach to those tasks, combined with enough complexity and uncertainty to allow for collaboration, problem-solving and intellectual challenge. Since Vodafone describes its work culture as enterprising, innovative and willing to take risks to grow, I feel confident the work day will provide enough challenge!"
"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 product, as I do. More often than not, there is some challenge or drama throughout the day (or 20), so that variety keeps me on my toes, engaged and excited."
