Creative Thinking Interview Questions

  1. 1.

    How often do you discuss work with your colleagues in order to think up new systems and styles of working?

      The interviewer would like to know if you discuss creative ideas with your coworkers. Do you use your creative mind with your colleagues to discuss plans and systems in the workplace? Talk to the interviewer about how you have used creative thinking in the workplace.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I have a policy with my team that if they have an innovative and helpful idea they can bring it to me at any time. If the idea or system is something that I think could work, we then create a plan together to present it to our head office. This policy has generated some powerful ideas in our office over the past three years including a work-share program and some health and safety initiatives."

      Rachelle's Answer
       for a Admin interview

      "I think it is important to discuss work with colleagues in a collaborative nature to encourage all types of ideas to come forth. Often, when people put their heads together, they will create something better than something one individual could have done alone."

      Rachelle's Answer
       for a Manager interview

      "I communicate with my coworkers, subordinates, and supervisor daily. We may not always think up new ideas, but we often discuss "what-if" scenarios."

      Rachelle's Answer
       for a Marketing interview

      "My current environment is a collaborative one 99% of the time. Our offices do not have walls, and we often eat lunch together in the boardroom."

      Rachelle's Answer
       for a Retail interview

      "The company which I work for does not have wiggle room for new ideas, or working styles. We are very much mandated to follow scripts and policy to a tee. Our team often wonders how we can better implement certain policies; however, we rarely discuss these as they are not well-received by the head office. I look forward to working in a more receptive environment soon."

      Rachelle's Answer
       for a Sales interview

      "My team collaborates all the time! When one of us closes a huge sale, we send an email to the entire team to let them know how we do it. We can all learn from each other's work methods which are encouraging and helpful."

      Rachelle's Answer
       for a Teacher interview

      "Each year at Teacher's Convention we spend two full days learning and attending workshops. I find that after these conventions, myself and my faculty have a new sense of excitement for our jobs and educational styling. This time of year is when we collaborate the most."
