Question 2 of 25
Do you have strong negotiation skills?
Professional Answers Preview
"Negotiating is a very regular part of my job. I have to regularly use this skill while communicating with the students, teachers and sometimes the maintenance staff. The last time I had to use my negotiation skills was when things got stuck in calculating the holiday benefits for the employees. The administration wanted to make some cuts while the employees were not in favor of this. I mediated and explained to the employees the reason behind this decision. I explained to the administration that it was unfair to dismiss the benefits. We reached a mid-ground, and everyone was happy."
Being an attendance clerk requires you to negotiate with your students quite often! The interviewer wants to know if you are capable of negotiating when needed. Tell the interviewer about some situation where you had to use your negotiation skills. It will be useful to mention how often you have to use this ability in your job and how successful you are.
More Answer Examples
Entry Level Example
"I imagine that an attendance clerk would need to use negotiation skills when giving out tardy notes, verifying the authenticity of absence notes or calling parents of students to verify absences. I have a small background in retail sales, in a commission driven background, so I am confident in my negotiation abilities."
Experienced Example
"My negotiation skills are strong! Working with kids for so long, and being a parent myself, I have had no choice but to hone my negotiations skills."

Tell me about your experience in handling challenging parents.
Professional Answers Preview
"Being in this profession, it is not uncommon to come across problematic parents from time to time. Dealing with them is pretty simple for me.

As an attendance clerk, you will have to collaborate with challenging parents, as well! The interviewer would like to know that you would handle this type of situation professionally, and with class. You can share a specific example or just state how you would react if faced with this situation.
More Answer Examples
Entry Level Example
"Parents can be protective of their children so I understand they may become defensive if they think their child has been unfairly disciplined for tardiness, for instance. If this were to happen, I would remind the parent that dedication to their kids education is important."
Experienced Example
"I am sure that I have been a challenging parent myself, from time to time! I try to have empathy for everyone's situation. If a parent is giving me pushback, I will ask them if there is anything I can do to help make their situation easier. That calms them down and opens up communication."

Question 2 of 25
Do you have strong negotiation skills?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
When I was an administrative assistant a few years ago, one of my duties was to schedule interviews with interested applicants. Just like other staffing receptionists, we did not have the authority to release detailed information that the hiring manager would be qualified to answer. It was challenging because the caller would become upset because they were eager to have their questions answered. Negotiating was an approach I would take to ensure the applicant that their questions would be answered in full detail once they meet with the hiring manager. I soothed the conversation by assuring them that the team is eager to meet with them and will be happy to answer any further questions they might have. Also, waiting until a face-to-face interview can give them time to think of more questions to ask, that way they can leave the office feeling confident in our company.
2.

I offer to complete a job for someone if they get too busy to do it. Sometimes the students in my cashier line ask why they have to have a certain item to make it a reimbursable meal. I tell them it will cost them more if they buy alacarte and tell them what the price will be.
6.
Parent walks in my office very upset about her students attendance. I would then talk to parent and give them my phone number and let them know that I will be on the look out from now on to see what is going on with their students attendance.
7.
There was a time I spoke with a customer negotiating costs. Customer had a dispute over his bill and after detailing his charges, I looked into negotiating an adjustment he would receive due to misinformation. After discussing reasoning behind the adjustment amount, the customer was satisfied with the negotiation.
8.
The last time I had to negotiate with someone was dealing with an irate customer who was at risk of foreclosure and wanted a lower mortgage payment and interest rate on their home. Instead he only qualified for a loan modification that would keep his payment the same and rate the same but would bring the loan current. He was very upset however I reminded him that this would prevent his home from going into foreclosure, and give him the oppurtunnity to become current and work towards repairing his credit report. I handled the matter in a very courteous way and provided him lots if information so that he could see the benefits of the modification. At the end of the call he thanked me for my time and throughly explaining everything to him and apologized to me for being so upset at the beginning of our conversation and felt alot better about being approved for a modification although he was so far behind.
