Have you done this kind of work before?
This question intends on finding out more about your past work experience and if any of it is related to this job. The answer to this question is pretty simple and needs to be answered honestly. There is always a possibility that the hiring manager might ask for references and do a background check and thus an honest answer is always good.
For answering this question, tell the hiring manager how long you have worked in a similar role or how much you know about this job and your reason for shifting jobs (this is an exception; you may give your answer without this too).

Rachelle's Answer
"I have been working as a slot attendant for the past X years and know a lot about how this job needs to be done. The reason why I decided to get a new job is because I shifted to a different city."
2.
What is your greatest strength?
This is the time to discuss the talent you offer, and employers want to see that you know yourself and work within your strengths. Jump right in offering your key strength! Maybe you are really good at mingling with large groups of people, communicating with them and dealing with a large amount of stress, pick the one that you feel you are best at! Tell the interviewer your strength, and share how this strength helps you in being a good slot attendant.

3.
Share an incident where you had to deal with a difficult person. How did you handle the situation?
This is quite a common question for an interviewer to ask as they want to hear if you can describe a work colleague conflict and how you handled it. They are also looking to see how you handle working with changing personalities in a team environment. Talk about how you reached your ultimate solution and any lessons you learned from that. Describe the situation and how this person was difficulty. It is important to indicate the how/why they were difficult. Then describe how you dealt with the situation.
Example might include a difficult colleague with whom you had to work towards a common goal but he/she was not ready to cooperate. Did you both sit and talk about the issue and sorted it out? How did it go?
Try not to bring personal issues here and also not something which involved you as the one who created the issue. This answer is supposed to portray you as a positive person who is also a problem solver and not someone who is the problem creator.

Rachelle's Answer
"In my last job we once had a really busy night and I was supposed to be working with this colleague who just didn't want to cooperate with me. This was creating a tensed atmosphere. I tried to manage it for some time but then I decided to take a small break and talked to him about it. We had a decent conversation and I explained the situation to him and that it was making the customers uncomfortable. He then changed his attitude and it all went well from that moment."
4.
Do you prefer to work independently or in a team?
The question intends on finding if you will be a good fit for this role or not. As someone who is working as a slot attendant, you may have your time working alone on a table and also as a part of a team. So, picking up either of those might faint your chances of getting the job. Try to answer this question in a way that convinces the interviewer that you enjoy working individually if the work demands you to be alone and at the same time if you have to work as a part of the team you equally enjoy that as well. The intention is to portray yourself as someone who adapts easily as per the situation presented.

Rachelle's Answer
"Although a major part of our job requires working individually which I completely enjoy, I also love working as a part of a team whenever there is a requirement."
5.
If you were hiring a person for this job, what would you look for?
This question is asked to assess your understanding of the job and its requirements. On what basis will you decide if a candidate who has applied for the job is eligible for the job or not.
For answering this question go through the job description properly before the interview and also do some research about the organization which has advertised the job. Mark some of the skills that you think would be used the most for this job and prepare your answer accordingly.

Rachelle's Answer
"I believe that an ideal candidate for this job should have great communication skills along with a sharp eye and attention to detail. He/she should also be a lively person."
6.
Provide an example where you dealt calmly in a high stress situation.
The interviewer is looking for past experiences that may have been stressful and how did you deal with them. They want to get to know your background better.
With ease! You have grown vertically in your profession with time, and it doesn't happen without being able to work through stressful times professionally and comfortably. Simply share with the interviewer that you are comfortable working through stressful situations. Mention that you do not let them bother you, and you simply take the necessary steps to work through them.
Try to think of some examples before the interview, because this is a very common interview question and may likely be asked.

Rachelle's Answer
"I have learnt that whenever there is a situation where the level of tension is high, its best to stay calm and relaxed. As a slot attendant, which is a customer facing role, we come across such situations every other day. Once a customer started attacking me when he had lost a lot in the game. I tried to stay calm and called the security. Its difficult to stay calm in such situations but I tried to keep my head on my shoulders and did the right thing."
7.
Why did you choose to become a slot attendant?
What motivated you to become a slot attendant? Was it some friend or family member? Some childhood story or was it some movie you watched? For answering this question be honest and tell the interviewer about your motivation for being in this profession.
Maybe you are in this profession for the money or the free drinks but thats something you may want to hide. Your answer should comprise of something thats inspiring but also sounds impressive. So you should avoid mentioning anything that may sound unprofessional.

Rachelle's Answer
"I wanted to be a slot attendant because this is one job that will teach me a lot about the casino, the people who visit them and also the people who run these casinos. Since some day down the line I wish to be a casino manager so this seemed to be a great choice to start my career with."
8.
What do you like least about being a slot attendant?
Do not be phased by the question. Turn a negative response into a positive. Most of us have some piece of our job that we do not enjoy as much as the other pieces of our job. The key is to share this without complaining about it. When asked this question, laugh, and humbly tell the interviewer what you like least. Reassure the interviewer that you really like being a slot attendant, and you will happily do this part of the job because it comes with the role.

Rachelle's Answer
"I think one thing I might dislike is XYZ but then I also know that its an important part of our job and since I love being a slot attendant I do that part happily."
9.
Why should we hire you?
We suggest that you ask a few former co-workers or family members what they feel is the one unique thing that sets you apart from the other candidates. Their perceptions will help you understand how you are perceived and what makes you the perfect person for the opportunity.

Rachelle's Answer
"I believe that I am one of the best candidates for this job. I am consistent in my performance and always try to improvise. Also, I am a good communicator which makes the customers comfortable and thus helps in improving the output."
10.
What is your greatest weakness? What are you doing to improve it?
Pick one of your weaknesses that is not a necessity for the role. Be candid and humble in your answer recognizing that you really aren't great at something and acknowledging your need to improve. Be sure you have an action plan in place for improving on this weakness too. Perhaps you are watching TED Talks about the weakness, reading the latest-and-greatest book on the subject, or maybe you are taking a seminar at a nearby community center in the near future. We are all human and all have weaknesses, so don't be afraid to share yours!

Rachelle's Answer
"I think that my greatest weakness is X but I am trying to work on it. I have been attending special sessions and also watching some TED talks to help myself out of this issue. I know its a long way to go but I am improving."
11.
What do you know about our casino?
With any job interview, it is crucial to understand the organization you are applying to. Understand their rules, what daily activities they generally do. Know some fun facts about the casino, like who started it, and what year it was started. Visit their website, and study the casino.
The key to answering this question is to spend some time in studying the organization and impress the hiring manager with your answer.
12.
What are your career goals?
It's important to think about how the position you are interviewing for will fit into your long term goals even as you apply for jobs. As you know that it takes a lot of hard work and determination and always some level of physical strength to make sure that you are working as a successful slot attendant. So what keep you motivated to keep doing this job? Do you have plans to grow in the casino business? While answering this question make sure that this job appears to be an important stepping stone to progress on the career path decided by you.

Rachelle's Answer
"Few years from now I want to be an expert in this field and I believe that this job will help me a lot in learning the necessary skills and also give me a lot of knowledge of this industry and whats important and whats not."
13.
Why are you the best candidate for us?
Talking about ourselves in this way can be challenging. We recommend reaching out to a few colleagues, family members, and friends. Ask them for their opinion. You'll probably be surprised at the consistency in their responses! Their answers will give you the response to the question. Tell the interviewer what sets you apart, and explain how your colleagues, family members, and friends have encouraged you with your gift in this area.

Rachelle's Answer
"I believe that my determination and willingness to work hard makes me the best candidate for this job. I am always ready for challenges and never hesitate to work hard when needed."
14.
How would your co-workers describe your attention to detail?
It is always best to support your reply with a real life example. Talk to the interviewer about your level of attentiveness when it comes to details on the job.

Rachelle's Answer
"My co-workers would describe my attention to detail as very strong. I can very easily point out spelling discrepancies in communication and will notice the small things. I think big-picture as well but have always had a knack for details."
15.
How comfortable you are in communicating with customers?
This will help in determining if you are a good fit for the role or not. As a slot attendant you will always be facing the customers and if you are not comfortable then this might not be the right role for you.
For answering this question tell the hiring manager how often do you deal with customers in your current role and what kind of feedback and reactions you receive from them. If possible, mention some incident where you were appreciated for your great communication skills.

Rachelle's Answer
"Communicating with customers is something that comes naturally to me. I never had to put in any extra efforts for doing that part of the job successfully. All my last supervisors and colleagues have appreciated me for this and of course I get some really good amount of tips from customers because of my communication skills."
