How do you handle performance reviews? Tell me about a difficult one.

Answer examples and advice for how to answer this interview question for a Preschool Director interview

How to Answer

Performance reviews are not difficult for you! As a Director, you ensure that you regularly spend time talking with your staff. When you hear about positive achievements, you can immediately praise them! When you hear of a need for a crucial conversation, you graciously pull the individual aside and address it right then and there. This way, there are no surprises during performance reviews, so they are not a challenge for you. Be sure to mention that you keep a file (electronic or paper) on each of your staff members. Each time you praise them for something, you jot it down in your file. Each time you need to have a crucial conversation, you put it in the file as well. When performance review season comes, you simply pull out the file, and re-state everything that has occurred.
