Common Interview Questions

  1. 1.

    Are you willing to travel for work?

      The interviewer would like to know if you are willing to put in overnight or daytime travel. Be sure to express how willing and flexible you are (or are not) when it comes to travel. It is okay to ask questions! The number of expected overnights and the overall travel schedule are essential factors for you to know.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I understand that regular travel is not a requirement of this role; however, I am certainly willing to travel for trade shows, conferences, or client appointments as needed. Could you share with me a bit more about any travel requirements for this position?"

       for a Manager interview

      "In my current position, I travel approximately six overnights per month, which is a comfortable pace for me. I am willing to discuss your travel schedule further and come up with a solution that works well for the company and my family responsibilities."

      Rachelle's Answer
       for a Marketing interview

      "Much of what I do as a Marketing Director can be done from remote work situations. For that reason, in my previous roles, I have not traveled more than 10-20% of the time. With that said, I am happy to discuss your travel requirements and accommodate the needs of this position."

       for a Sales interview

      Rachelle's Answer
       for a Teacher interview

      "As an educator, travel is not something that I have truly considered; however, I am not opposed to the idea! If you could share more details of potential travel requirements for this position, I would appreciate that very much."

      Anonymous Answer

      "I understand that regular travel is not required, but occasional is required as you have more than 30 centers. I have been traveling for my previous job to meet clients and check on various hospitals, so I am completely okay to do the same here."
