"The greatest accomplishment in my career was graduating University as an honors student while still working full time in a related field. I was top of my class, and working full time. This showed me that I am able to dedicate myself to my career, and reach the goals that I set for myself. It felt great to accomplish so much and be recognized for my dedication."
"I have many accomplishments that I am very proud of. Overall, I would say that my greatest work accomplishment is the positive reputation that I have in this industry."
"My greatest accomplishment is the fact that I have exceeded my sales quotas every year for the past 5 years. Each year, my sales results improve. I am very proud of that."
"I would have to say my greatest accomplishment was reducing departmental costs by 25% by thoroughly reviewing packing slips and comparing them to invoices and contract terms for accuracy."
"My greatest career accomplishment was having been promoted the fastest in the entire organization's history and sweetening the deal by closing a deal less than 48 hours later. I was not only proud of myself, but also received accolades from the VP of Sales in front of the entire company, which was a really special and fun moment. I took a pay cut to move into the role, so to exceed expectations, be promoted, and be financially ahead of where I was previously was really exhilarating."
Talking about your greatest accomplishment will give the interviewer a strong idea of where you place your values. It will also show the interviewer more about your personality, how you like to be motivated, and how to coach you in the future. It is okay to brag a little bit when answering this question. Show that you are proud of yourself and your career accomplishments!

"In my most recent position we had a consistent problem with employees showing up late for their shifts or calling in sick at the very last moment. Rather than the typical documenting and reprimanding style that management usually takes, I decided to track the results of an accountability reward system. For 180 days, my employees were rewarded for coming to work 10 minutes early. Also, for every month with zero sick days, a bonus was added. In the end, we awarded those with perfect attendance a $600 bonus. The bonuses cost us less money, in the end, than the cost of lowered productivity due to absent employees. The program was a success and upper management chose to keep it implemented for another 6 months. We will reassess in December, but it seems to be working very well."
"I problem solve quite often at work, primarily with customer resolution. Just yesterday I worked with a customer who was unhappy. Through calm communication, I was able to resolve the complaint and create another returning customer."
"I am a regular problem solver. Last week, I was eating lunch in the break room when I noticed a bottleneck of people from the assembly line all trying to get to the microwave and vending machines. It was jumbled mess of people and they only have 30 minutes. I developed a plan to rearrange the break room for better flow, and now the lunch time process runs smoother for the staff."
"When working with the operational support staff, it was clear that they felt as though they were taken for granted and completely disregarded by the sales staff as a whole. Not only did it make them feel devalued and lower their morale, but that in turn lowered their productivity. Rather than just let it fester, I decided to listen to the ops staff and then bridge the gap with the sales team. By sitting down and having a conversation, laying out a more effective way of delegating work, everyone walked out feeling better about the job, situation, and their coworkers."
Problem solving and dispute resolution are very important skills to possess. Display to the interviewer that you are capable of problem solving within the workplace.
