What do you think we could do better?

7 Answer Examples

By: Rachelle Enns

How to Answer

The interviewer would like to see if you have any insight regarding opportunities in which they can become better in the industry. As a job seeker, you have a unique advantage because you have gone through their process, or at least a little bit of it, as an outsider. Discuss what you have observed as a candidate, or even as a past customer. Your reply should not be a serious critique. Be sure to keep your answer light and end on a positive note.

Professional Answer Examples
General
Answer example

"I have been through a great deal of your interview process at this point, and I must say that your company has the fastest callback time, and are the most responsive overall. The only thing I could even mention at this point is that the job portal was a bit tough to navigate. Overall, I am thrilled with my experience."

Admin
Answer example

"I did notice that your employer profiles on social media could be stronger. Those profiles on LinkedIn, Facebook, and even Instagram can be helpful resources for candidates. I set these up for my previous employer and would be happy to do the same for you, should I be the successful candidate in this role."

Manager
Answer example

"I have heard excellent things about your organization including how you perform your exit interviews with employees who are leaving your company. You mentioned in our previous interview that your company could be more efficient in the hiring process. This task is one that I can certainly tackle once I am on board."

Marketing
Answer example

"I find your agency to be highly creative but perhaps a touch underrated compared to other local agencies. I want to yell from the rooftops how valuable your team is, and the fact that you are lower priced than most is incredible."

Retail
Answer example

"I truly appreciate the effort you put into your onboarding process, and how quickly you have moved with my candidacy so far. I am happy with all that I have seen and have no valuable suggestions at this time."

Sales
Answer example

"I have been a customer, as well as now a candidate, with your company. If I could make any recommendations, I would suggest strengthening your social media presence. 100% of your next generation of customers are online. I can help you with meeting them there through a stronger sales based social strategy."

Teacher
Answer example

"I have not spent enough time in your school district to make an educated recommendation; however, as an experienced educator, I can guess that your pain points may come from public education budget cuts. Is this correct?"
