  1. 1.

    Do you understand what is expected of you in your current role?

      How to Answer

      The interviewer would like for you to take some time describing your current role and the expectations you face regularly. A sign of a mature and self-aware employee is knowing precisely what is expected of you in your job. If you show little direction or awareness of the impact you make on your company, the interviewer will see this as a red flag. There is no need to take 10 minutes walking the interviewer through your day; however, you should take a bit of time discussing your key responsibilities.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I perform a huge variety of tasks in my current role. My key responsibilities include keeping our 15 customer service reps on track, training, and onboarding new hires, and taking accountability for the store's sales performance. I am the one who answers to corporate regarding our stores' sales, customer returns, stock levels, and inventory discrepancies. My job requires a great deal of attention to detail, and I juggle many moving parts at the same time."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "Yes, I do understand what is expected of me as an administrative assistant. First, I am expected to be reliable and enthusiastic about the company's mission. I am the first face that our customers see when they come into the office, so I am to smile, greet, and make them feel comfortable. I keep the office running smoothly every day, which includes answering the phone promptly, communicating with the executives whom I support, and answering inquiries that come in through our general admin email."

      "Yes, of course. I use a hosting plan to drive breakthroughs with objectives and KPIs which are fully aligned in annual planning. I also make alignments in daily management, and monthly and quarter review processes. On top of this, I always have 1:1 meetings with my key stakeholders and seek feedback to continually improve on my performance."

      Marcie's Answer

      Can you possibly talk more about what some of the objectives and KPIs are? What other responsibilities are expected of you? Make sure to explain these elements so that the interviewer completely understands your current role and its expectations.

      Rachelle's Answer

      You offer a lot of great detail here, but the delivery is a bit awkward. It seems you 'bury the lead,' so to speak. I have offered a revision for you, below :)

      "Yes, I understand my current role very well and have exceeded expectations for the past three years. When hired at Company ABC, they explained to me their expectations, which included increasing our customer base and maintaining existing customers. Also, reviewing operating expenses, evaluating the team, distributing tasks according to their capabilities, and creating an information platform database for the company. I was also to propose new products in the market while adding value to existing products."
