      Rachelle's Answer

      "My co-workers would describe my attention to detail as very strong. I can very easily point out spelling discrepancies in communication and will notice the small things. I think big-picture as well but have always had a knack for details."

      Rachelle's Answer for an Admin Interview

      "I can't necessarily speak for them, but I think they would say that I have above average attention to detail. I make mistakes, but I usually catch them before passing my work on to the intended recipient."

      Rachelle's Answer for a Manager Interview

      "I have a well-honed ability to point out discrepancies in my work, and the work of my team. Being in this role for seven years has helped me to streamline many processes and avoid a lot of error. I plan to bring this same discretion with me to your organization."

      Rachelle's Answer for a Marketing Interview

      "As a marketing professional and an overall creative person, I tend to move quickly but can take count of my work and notice mistakes just as quickly. My coworkers seem to enjoy my style of work so I would say they'd have nice things to say about me and my attention to detail!"

      Rachelle's Answer for a Retail Interview

      "Before I give a customer their total, I count the lines on the POS and compare them to the items in front of me. I would never want to miss charging an item or double charging for an item as I would feel so bad. My coworkers tease me about this a little bit."

      Rachelle's Answer for a Sales Interview

      "My attention to detail is a point that I have been working on a lot this past year. I am meticulous but, in the past, have pushed my documentation back a little bit. It's something I am conscious of and continually working on."

      Rachelle's Answer for a Teacher Interview

      "Being a teacher, I need to be diligent and detailed every step of the way. My students like my step-by-step teaching style and my colleagues would attest to my strong attention to detail as well."
