Question 2 of 25
Tell me about the most rewarding experience you have had, working in a team environment. What made it so rewarding?
Professional Answers Preview
"The most rewarding teamwork experience that I have had was in my last year of university. We had a project due, in teams of 4, which accounted for quite a large part of our grade. I believe everyone pulled more than their weight because so much was at stake. Teamwork is very rewarding when everyone has something significant to win, or lose."
The interviewer wants to hear that you feel accomplished through teamwork. Talk about a time when you felt fulfilled through a team setting or project collaboration. An example may be a time when you worked on a team project in University, a recent work collaboration, or possibly an extracurricular experience such as coaching a little league team. Discuss the positive results of the teamwork and how you attained a positive outcome as a group.
Specific Career Examples
Admin Example
"One of my most rewarding teamwork experiences was while I was attending University. I learned so much by working with my classmates. I gained new problem-solving skills and learned a lot from their research preferences."
Manager Example
"My business development team was not getting along, so I collaborated with a team-building service, where we had a day full of development exercises, meant to draw our team closer to each other by developing a sense of trust and camaraderie. This experience was incredibly rewarding because I saw relationships and bonds quickly form. I had a plan in place for keeping the momentum over time, which also worked well."
Marketing Example
"Our marketing team recently worked on a major campaign for a well-known brand. It was by far the biggest project in my portfolio. I was the junior copywriter on the project and delivered amazing work, not just because I always strive to do my best, but because the more senior members of the team believed in my work. Their encouragement and faith in my work were all I needed to elevate my work even further."
Retail Example
"Last Christmas, we were short staffed, and run off of our feet during the biggest shopping season of the year. The struggle, the overtime hours, but also the excitement of huge sales numbers, put our team on a type of high that I had not seen before. It was pure adrenaline and super exciting. This experience is by far the best team environment in which I have ever worked. I loved the excitement and the way we all banded together to ensure the success of our store."
Sales Example
"The position I am currently in has been my first experience leading a team. We have knocked some seriously crazy numbers out of the park, becoming the pacesetters for many product launches. It's been exciting to see everyone flourish. I love to see everyone succeed. It's encouraging and exhilarating."
Teacher Example
"I approach many class projects as team-based efforts, putting students into groups with kids they may not normally choose to work alongside. It is highly rewarding to see new friendships develop while helping my students to expand their views of who they can, and should, be friends with."

Question 3 of 25
Give an example of when your team motivated you. How did this gesture enhance your performance?
Professional Answers Preview
"I had a major year-end audit that was not going smoothly. I had a few computer crashes and other small setbacks that turned into a huge frustration. My Controller noticed that I was struggling and she brought me a coffee, sat down and said 'What can I do?'. Just knowing that she was willing to help was enough to give me some oomph back!"
Everyone needs to be motivated now and then! The interviewer would like to know some of the ways that you can be driven, even on the toughest of days. Many people find motivation through incentives, additional training, and positive affirmations. Think of a time when you needed extra motivating. Share what members of your team did to drive you, and how it positively affected your performance.
Specific Career Examples
Admin Example
"It can be easy to lose steam on a project when things do not go your way. If anyone on our team loses motivation due to setbacks, we are sure to encourage each other by focusing on what went right. It's a great tactic that works well for all of us!"
Manager Example
"As the manager, I am usually the motivating one, but sometimes, the tables turn. I had a rough week with a production floor accident and then two employees quitting, without notice. My team noticed that I was a bit down and so they surprised me by ordering lunch for our team one day. It was the morale boost that I, and they, needed. It felt great that they thought of me."
Marketing Example
"I had a significant client pull the plug on their project, about halfway through, due to budget cuts. I had put so much effort into the work because they had been my biggest client to date. Knowing that I wanted the work on my portfolio, my team could feel the disappointment. They agreed to place me on another major client right away, even though that wasn't the normal client assignment schedule. The gesture was so kind and showed me that they believed in my work."
Retail Example
"One Saturday, we were about 3 hours from closing, and I was still about $500 away from hitting my quota. I felt discouraged and did not want to get written up. We work on an 'up' system where we take turns approaching clients as they enter the store. My team forewent the up order and let me take as many clients as I needed so that I hit my quota. I exceeded my target, and the following week, we did the same for another associate who was at risk of not meeting their goal."
Sales Example
"A couple of months ago I had a client pull out on a huge deal. This deal would have put me over my sales quota for the year, and I was disappointed when it all came to a halt. My team members understood the disappointment, and I received nice notes of encouragement from them throughout the week. These gestures kept me motivated, and I was able to resuscitate the deal. I believe a lot of that confidence came from the encouragement my teammates gave me."
Teacher Example
"I had a very challenging class last year with the class being primarily boys, and prepubescent at that. There was a lot of arguing amongst the boys. I don't have kids myself, so I did not understand this type of behavior. My faculty collectively went to the Principal and suggested that part of our budget go to hiring a TA for me. It was so incredible to see my co-workers go to bat for me. The extra hand that I received made all the difference."

Question 4 of 25
What qualities do you believe are most valuable for a team lead to possess?
Professional Answers Preview
"I feel that a strong team lead should be motivating, competitive, and a natural mentor. I have had leaders with these qualities, and it makes any team project run much smoother when they possess these. When I lead a team, I do my best to emulate these qualities as well."
The interviewer wants to know the attributes that you value most in a team leader. List a few characteristics that you feel are most valuable for a team leader to possess and be sure to comment on how those relate to your strengths. Good examples might include: - Trustworthy - Accountable - Committed - Results-oriented - Detailed - Driven - Strong Negotiator - Reliable All of these attributes are valuable in a team setting, and any of them will make sound examples for you.
Specific Career Examples
Admin Example
"In my opinion, I feel that a team leader should be flexible and ready to adapt to any changes that come their way. We have all worked for rigid bosses, at one time or another, and nobody seems to enjoy that!"
Manager Example
"A great team leader will be a natural encourager, a positive person, and someone who will go out of their way to point out the good things their team members are doing, versus only noticing the bad points."
Marketing Example
"The best leaders that I have ever worked for are ones who believe that continued learning is important for everyone, including themselves. Education is wildly important, especially in the ever-evolving marketing world. A great leader recognizes this, and keeps up."
Retail Example
"I believe that a team leader needs to be a good listener, show empathy, but also command the attention in a room. People work best for those they trust but whom they also know that they can learn from."
Sales Example
"I always seek to work for leaders who do, versus tell. I want to work for a true winner who blows sales targets out of the water, has excellent client retention, and an immense amount of referral business. That kind of passion from a leader is what every salesperson should experience, as they grow in their sales career."
Teacher Example
"I love working with a Principal who is empathetic and caring to the students while also being an action-taker. A great leader will be one to take the reigns and not apologize for taking action when it comes to expecting the best performance from their faculty."

Question 5 of 25
Have you ever had to adapt your work style to fit team objectives?
Professional Answers Preview
"Typically, I like to begin my day with listening to voicemail, checking emails, and making a to-do list for the day. The goal of this team was to increase staff communication, so we decided to start each morning with a team huddle instead. This change meant that I was unable to kick-off my day with my usual morning routine. I was happy to meet with the team huddles because I understood that they were helping us meet our goal of improving communication."
The interviewer wants to see that you are open to change and are adaptable. Think about the times when you have had to learn a new policy, change your organization approach, or times when you have had to change your plan for meeting a goal. Talk to the interviewer about how you altered this work style to achieve the team's objectives. Be sure to mention that you were happy to accommodate this change to help the team reach the overall goal.
Specific Career Examples
Admin Example
"In my current role, my boss prefers that I communicate almost everything via email, versus in-person or telephone conversation. This habit was a challenging one for me to get into, at first, because I am such a vocal individual and felt that my written communication skills were not as strong. I am very good with written communication, now, let me tell you!"
Manager Example
"Every time I gain a new team member, and my team expands, I have to change my management styling just a touch to fit the new hire. I will slow down my communication until they are up to speed, for example. I want new hires to succeed, and part of that means ensuring they are not lost or falling behind."
Retail Example
"Every major holiday, I have to change my work style to fit the objectives of the busy retail season. These times include Christmas, Boxing Day, Back to School, and Black Friday, primarily. I find that I need to be extra-communicative during those times, put in a lot of overtime work, and somehow hustle, double-time! It is exhausting, but exhilarating at the same time."
Marketing Example
"As a marketing director, it seems that our team changes our work styling almost every time a new trend hits, or a new algorithm comes to play. When these changes occur, I have to conduct research, share my findings, and then guide the team according to the new release or trend. It certainly keeps me on my toes!"
Sales Example
"I am typically a lone ranger when it comes to my territory sales role. Just this year, our company introduced a sales trainee program where I had to take a new hire with me, on the road, for an entire week every month. This new program has been good for me because it forces me to slow down and walk through every step in the sales process. Through this, I have removed myself from the auto-pilot setting I did not realize I was on. My sales were always great, but have increased by 15% since this mentee program began."
Teacher Example
"I have to adapt my work style nearly every day, according to the lesson plan, and how well my students are grasping a new lesson plan. I truly do not mind this as it keeps me creative in the classroom!"
