How do you like to be recognized for your accomplishments?
The interviewer would like to know what motivates you to be an over-achiever in the workplace. We all want recognition in some way for our accomplishments in the workplace. Perhaps you enjoy surprise gifts, financial perks, public attention, kind words, added responsibilities, or title promotions. Share with the interviewer how you would like recognition for your hard work.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I am a highly competitive person who is compensation driven. I like to recognition for my accomplishments through monetary bonus' or contests where the stakes are high."
Rachelle's Answer #2

3.
How would your co-workers describe your attention to detail?
The interviewer would like to know more about your attention to detail. It is always best to support your reply with a real-life example. Talk to the interviewer about your level of attentiveness when it comes to the smaller details.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"My co-workers would describe my attention to detail as very strong. I can very easily point out spelling discrepancies in communication and will notice the small things. I think big-picture as well but have always had a knack for details."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"My attention to detail is a point that I have been working on a lot this past year. I am meticulous but, in the past, have pushed some of my university documentation and papers back a little bit. It's something I am conscious of and continually working on."
4.
Do you know anyone who works for us?
Did you know that people with a friend at work are 7x more likely to engage in their work fully? (Source: Forbes) The interviewer would like to see if a friend referred you to this position, a former co-worker, or an industry acquaintance. This question is another way of the interviewer asking where you heard about the role, and if you have any connections from within. Warner Music may also have employee referral programs. You can keep your answer brief and to the point.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I am friends with a professional recruiter who recommend that I check out your company's job postings. She mentioned that you had an excellent reputation and that everyone she has placed with your company has seen long tenure."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"My best friend referred me to this job posting. She is one of the interns at WMG, Jessica Smith. She has said some incredible things about your organization, all which prompted me to apply!"
5.
Have you ever been advised by a fellow employee or supervisor to lie about a situation? How did you handle this ethical dilemma?
Warner Music would like to know how you would handle an ethical dilemma. Ethical dilemmas in the workplace will come up from time to time. Assure the interviewer that you can control these types of difficulties with professionalism and poise.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"Oh goodness, we all know in marketing and media that this happens all the time. People want to lie about stats, overdo projections, or overpromise on deadlines. I would never cave to that pressure. Aside from being dishonest, it doesn't do anybody any favors in the end."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I have never been told to lie to a fellow employee or supervisor on the job. If I were to be asked to lie, I absolutely would not do that. I am not the type of personality to be pushed around on the job. I will always be myself and keep my integrity first."
