1.
What would have to change about your current job, for you to stay where you are?
What is it that you are missing from your current opportunity? If given this new position, would you be receiving all that you need from this new opportunity?

Be sure to remain positive when you answer this question and avoid speaking poorly about your current supervisor or company.

Rachelle's Answer
"For me to stay in my current job there would need to be less 'on-call' work and a higher pay rate. Currently, I am on call 3 weekends per month and my current company does not offer a competitive pay rate for my level of expertise."
2.
What experience do you have with snaking clogged up pipes?
This answer will depend a bit on your level of experience. You could give an approximate number to the interviewer or talk about your level of comfortability with this common plumbing task.

Rachelle's Answer
"I have been plumbing for the past 8 years so I can safely say that I have snaked hundreds of clogged pipes. I am very comfortable with a task such as this."
3.
What training do you have in plumbing?
This should be a simple and brief answer but also include some information on the continued training you have had.
Rachelle's Answer
"My training has included all of the in-class work required as well as my apprenticeship hours. I would like to continue my training to include more work on commercial properties."
4.
Do you prefer your water mains be pvc or copper?
As you may know, there is some debate between PVC and copper for the use in water mains. Be sure to pick a side and then explain your answer.

Rachelle's Answer
"I prefer copper pipes as I feel that PVC isn’t always the safest choice. Many people are concerned that the chemicals used in the production of CPVC may cause health issues when exposed to heat. I find copper to be a safer choice especially when there will be consumption of water from those pipes."
5.
Have you ever changed a toilet before?
This question is designed to find out what level of experience you have as a plumber.

If you have changed a toilet before you could say, "Yes, I have changed many toilets in my career as a plumber. The most challenging time was when...." and be sure to give an insightful or entertaining example.

If you have not changed a toilet before, you can say, "I have not had the opportunity to change a toilet as of yet but I am confident in my ability to do so."
Rachelle's Answer
"Yes, I have changed many toilets in my career as a plumber. The most challenging time was when...."
