Question 1 of 13
Tell me about your relationship with your previous boss.
Professional answers
My previous boss and I had a great working relationship. We were in sync when it came to accomplishing things we needed to do in our department. We scheduled weekly touch base meetings to stay current on our progress and address any issues that came up along the way. I learned a lot from them on leadership while adding great value to the team.
My previous boss and I got along well. We had very different interests, so we did not spend a lot of time chatting, but our work interests were aligned and we respected each other.

How do you believe you will complement our department, if you were hired?
Professional answers
If I were hired, I will compliment your department by adding value to the pressing initiatives we have prioritized. I will find ways to make our team better that make sense for the company and share knowledge about the great work we are doing across other departments.
From what I understand, this department has very little turnover, which is fantastic. But, I will bring an outsiders perspective with different experiences and methods, and hopefully, I can help find some areas to improve upon.

Question 12 of 13
What do you know about our company culture?
Professional answers
I read many positive reviews online about your organization and company culture. You offer great incentives to keep people motivated and it seems to be the type of fast paced environment that values innovation and performance. My type of place!
I only know what I read on your website, and reviews on LinkedIn, Google, etc. Your website information was very appealing, but there were mixed reviews online. I do not put a lot of emphasis on reviews, as I know that most people only take the time to leave a review if they are upset. There were only a handful total, and I see that you have hundreds of employees.
