Bookstore Interview Questions

  1. 1.

    Are you a reliable person? Tell me about your punctuality and accountability on the job.

      Assure the interviewer that you are reliable and can be counted on to work in a non-traditional 9-5 work environment. Here is your chance to highlight your work ethic and show the value that you can offer.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I pride myself on being reliable and going above and beyond in my role. I take personal accountability for my work and provide a great example to my coworkers."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I was raised to believe that you should be 10 minutes early for everything. My proactive nature typically leads me to arrive at work early to prepare for a successful day ahead. I am very reliable and punctual."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I am punctual and reliable, indeed! You are welcome to call my references as well. In addition to being reliable, I enjoy learning how I can add value to my employer, even if it is outside the scope of my role's expectations. I'm someone you can count on to deliver quality service and a long-term fit."

      Anonymous Answer

      "I always make sure to arrive 10 to 15 minutes to any places or meet ups. I am always prepared for any occasion as well. I take responsibility for all my work at home and school."

      Rachelle's Answer

      Try to expand on how you are always prepared for any occasion. That is a big statement that the interviewer would want to unpack.

      "What makes me reliable is that I am always 10 minutes early for work or any situation where someone is relying on me. I take responsibility for my deadlines and will stay late to finish tasks. If I make an error, I will address the mistake, learn how to fix it, and see things through until they are correct."
