Click To View Answer
How to Answer
You are a reliable person who arrives to work a few minutes early for each shift! Begin by telling the interviewer that you always leave your home a few minutes early to ensure you arrive to work on time for each shift. Mention that when the weather is poor, you plan ahead by leaving extra time to get to work, and you have backup plans in place for childcare in case your current plans fall through. If you have ever been tardy, be sure to mention why you were tardy and how you called into work to notify them that you would be late. You might state, "I was stuck on the interstate due to an accident one-time last year. I was sitting in stand still traffic for 25 minutes. I called my manager right away to let her know I was in stand still traffic, and I notified her that I would be in as soon as possible. I am typically always on time, so she had no concerns with it since it was outside of my control."

How to Answer
Be candid with the interviewer sharing if your drawer was ever previously off by a large dollar amount. We all make mistakes and this can happen from time-to-time. The key is to share if the money was found and how you learned from your mistake. Simply tell the interviewer who reconciled your drawer for you to find the mistake, and mention that you recognized the importance of the mistake ensuring that it never happened again.
Question 4 of 26
Have you ever complained to coworkers about management in the past? If so, what did they do wrong?

How to Answer
Interviewers are looking for team players who support their management team by offering positive and constructive feedback where it is due. Begin by telling the interviewer that you like to talk positively about your leadership team with your co-workers recognizing what your managers are great at. Next, mention that you do not complain about your managers, and you might offer constructive feedback if it is necessary. Feel free to provide an example of a time you have done so! For example, you might state that you had a manager who intimidated some of the newer employees because they only talked with the new employees when they had done something wrong. You might share how you pulled your manager aside and explained your perspective offering your friendly feedback. Be sure to mention the success you had with the conversation, and share how appreciative the manager was to receive your feedback.
Question 5 of 26
If a coworker calls in sick, and you realize you will have long lines all afternoon, how would you handle this?
Click To View Answer
How to Answer
The interviewer needs to hear that you are a team player and do not allow situations like this to get the best of you. Tell the interviewer that you recognize your co-workers may get sick from time-to-time, and it is your responsibility as a member of the team to step up during those times to help you. Share that you would simply keep a positive attitude and cheerful customer service attitude serving each customer as quickly as you can. Be sure to mention that if there is another cashier who might be able to come in that day to help you, you may consider reaching out to them to ask if they would be willing to come in for a few hours as well.

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
