How to Answer

At which of your past jobs have you been the most successful? Now, think about what you liked about their workplace. Did you have an office or cubical? Did you sit by a window or in a hallway? Did you wear jeans or professional clothes to work each day? Did you spend most of your day on the phone, or did you spend most of your day out and about at the property? Share 2-3 of these things that you liked best! Next, think about your manager as well as the leadership team. What did you like most about it? Did they let you make independent decisions? Did you get to set your own hours? Did they interact with you a lot? Simply share 2-3 of your favorite things they did.

Professional Answer Examples
Answer example

"I'm most successful in an environment where I'm trusted to lead the team and where I'm judged by the results that I produce. When upper management starts to direct middle management in the way that the team should be run, the company runs the risk of alienating the team members on the ground floor. A good manager knows his people well and how to handle them to get them to perform at high levels because he sees them on a daily basis and is the most well-informed. He is the one who's best-equipped to make decisions about how to achieve the results that upper management wants. And that's all I ask for: to be trusted to deliver strong performance for my superiors."
