1.
When have you received criticism? How do you handle criticism?
Receiving feedback on the job is not a negative thing. Be sure to tell the hiring manager about a time when you have recently been coached by a supervisor or mentor. How did you take it, and how did you implement the criticism?

Rachelle's Answer
"I am good at receiving feedback from my team. A few months ago, during a performance review, my supervisor asked me to update my skills in SAP. I realized that since my promotion I didn't use the program as often anymore, and I was getting a bit rusty. I was sure to practice it in the coming days and was back to a more than acceptable standard shortly after."
2.
If hired, how do you intend on making a difference with our company?
During your interview process, have you noticed any potential changes that could be made to increase the company's productivity? This is a great time to talk about what you would like to see as a QC Manager. Beware of not cutting the company down but do make some suggestions in a respectful manner.

Rachelle's Answer
"After our first interview I went home and took note of some of the activity that I saw on the production line during the tour. One way that I would like to make a difference is by creating a team environment with the production workers. Many safety issues are resolved simply by creating a stronger teamwork based environment. That is certainly one way that I could quickly make an impact if hired."
3.
How do you prioritize your work?
Being able to prioritize and manage multiple urgent needs at once is a really important skill. Show the interviewer you are capable of doing this by talking about how you manage your day.

Rachelle's Answer
"My way of prioritizing my work will include starting each day with a full review of production needs. I will review which tasks, when left undone, will cost the company the most in losses. The bottom line is always the priority. From there, I move down the list and manage my day."
4.
Do you work well under pressure?
Let the interviewer know that you work well under pressure by giving an example or talking about a time when you were acknowledged for your ability to do so.

Rachelle's Answer
"I do work very well under pressure. My previous supervisor at ABC Company commented quite frequently on my ability to remain calm during stressful situations. I can easily look at a problem with a keen eye to see what the root truly is which helps me to stay calm under pressure."
5.
What are your career goals?
When answering this question be sure to talk about what you hope for yourself for the future and how that can fit into what the company is looking for from you long term.

Rachelle's Answer
"Over time, I would like to grow my experience to include being the quality control manager for multiple sites. I am hoping to expand my education to also include a Project Management certificate so that I can offer more to my employer."
