There are a few major competitors who promise cheaper delivery than we do at Company ABC. How will you overcome this challenge with our potential customers?

How to Answer
The interviewer would like to know that you can overcome simple objections from clients. Being the cheapest solution in the market is not necessarily the best answer. Show the interviewer that you can identify the value in their service. How would you show a customer that Company ABC is the best choice for their shipping/logistics needs? To answer this question correctly, you must have conducted some research on Company ABC and their competitors. Your answer should reflect the ways that Company ABC stands out in the industry.

Discuss with the interviewer how you would do your part to alleviate this issue. If you have experienced a situation like this before, you can certainly use your real-life example. Discuss how you handled the situation and what the resolution was.

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
