    Do you think a chain of command is essential in the workplace?

      How to Answer

      The interviewer would like to know when it comes to organizational effectiveness if you believe that a chain of command is necessary. How you answer this query can impact the way the interviewer sees your willingness to be a good team player who respects the organizational makeup of the company. Understanding the importance of a chain of command shows maturity and the fact that you recognize that great businesses require a precise distribution of power and tasks.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I believe that a chain of command is important in most business situations. For instance, when it comes to employee issue resolution, or helping clients understand where they should direct their queries and needs. I believe in the importance of everyone understanding their responsibilities with boundaries at the same time. The depth of this chain of command, of course, varies depending on the size of the company. Could you share with me a bit more about the chain of command within this organization?"

      Rachelle's Answer

      "A chain of command is important and best when it does not interfere with a company's ability to pivot quickly and function in a smooth and disciplined manner. I have always been one to respect the chain of command, whether that be at work or school. I like to have a clear idea of who to turn to when I have needs, who to ask when I have questions, and what to strive for as I gain momentum in my career."

      "ABSOLUTELY!!! I am fully aware of my duties, my tasks, and challenges in a day. But without that leadership from a regional business manager, who gets their direction from the sales manager then there is no structure and without structure, we would be in danger of not fulfilling what is required as a business."
