TIPS TO PREPARE
TOP ANSWERS
Example #1
"Last year when I was managing dispatch I noticed a pretty solid opportunity for us to save on overtime hours. I created a presentation and gave it to my manager who took it to upper management. The changes were implemented, and I was very proud of the suggestion that I made."
Example #2
"Our company did not have a strong policy when it came to workplace harassment and bullying. I was able to work with the leadership team to create a new program which has been readily welcomed by our staff."
Example #3
"I have seen a lot of growth in my current company and there came a time, about two years ago, where we needed to make a stronger division between the sales, administration, and marketing divisions. Many employees were wearing multiple hats, and expectations were becoming convoluted. I made a recommendation for the division of roles and tasks, and it's worked tremendously well."
Example #4
"My current company was a start-up when I first joined, and we did not have any policy in place for reigning in customer changes and requests. I recommended a policy where amends are made within seven days from original submission. The agency owner implemented the idea. As a result, more projects completed ahead of schedule and clients became more decisive."
Example #5
"I noticed that our current theft protection tags were leaving holes in our more delicate garments. Our business was using the typical magnet and pin style security tags which were quite heavy. I made the recommendation that we change over to the style that stuck to the inside label. They are nearly weightless and also customers like them better because they don't interfere with the shape. We are in the process of implementing the change."
Example #6
"I had noticed a lack of communication with our 2nd and 3rd shift operations. I drafted a proposal to purchase announcement TVs to have hung in various places in the building to share information and requested a meeting with my department supervisor and the business leader."
Example #7
"I recommended change recently when I asked that the split classes also have two teachers present in the room. As great as having a 5/6 split can be, there are challenges including learning curve and often bigger class size. My request is currently under review."
Example #8
"Last year when I was managing the scheduling I noticed a pretty solid opportunity for us to save on overtime hours. I created a presentation and gave it to my manager who took it to upper management. The changes were implemented, and I was very proud of the suggestion that I made."

About Our Approach to Q&As
Our interview questions are created by writers, most of whom have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with the companies, careers or schools they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We strive to match our experts' background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
