Is compensation the most important factor for you when taking a new job?
TIPS TO PREPARE
TOP ANSWERS
OUR COACH SAYS
Example #1
"Salary is important to me because I know that I am skilled and well educated. With that said, I do look at the full picture which includes factors such as benefits and the amount of paid vacation time."
Example #2
"Several factors are important to me when taking a job. Compensation is a driving component but so is the company mission, culture, benefits, and location. I am looking to have an easier commute than I currently experience."
Example #3
"For me, as a manager, the most important factor in accepting a new role is the health of the company, and it's employees. I am looking to take on a team that is positive. I like to work with enthusiastic people that I can motivate. With that said, I am also looking for a competitive financial offer."
Example #4
"At this point in my career, I am looking to join a marketing department that will give me the opportunity to work on more significant projects and with more robust tech and applications. Compensation is a driver, of course, but not the only one."
Example #5
"I am earning my way through University right now, so the two most important factors to me are flexibility in my schedule, and the opportunity to earn a fair wage. I am available evenings and weekends but come next semester; I will be available during most afternoons."
Example #6
"I am seeking first a product and company that I am proud to stand behind. Compensation and commissions will increase when I am happy with my job so I would say that culture and company reputation is most important to me."
Example #7
"Several factors are important to me when taking a job. Compensation is a driving component but so is the workplace culture, benefits, and location. I am looking to have an easier commute than I currently experience."
Example #8
"Salary is important to me because I know that I am skilled and well educated. With that said, I do look at the full picture which includes factors such as benefits, work-life balance, perks, and company culture."

Example #10

About Our Approach to Q&As
Our interview questions are created by writers, most of whom have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with the companies, careers or schools they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We strive to match our experts' background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
