What is one of your weaknesses?

3 Answers

Never say "time management" is a weakness. Sorry to be rude, but that is not a good answer. Less

I have no weakness when it comes to performing my job but I tend to be too nice and too kind to everyone, I think some people sees that as my weakness. Less

One of my weaknesses is time management. I am too stubborn sometimes to admit when I need help finishing a project within a deadline and I attempt to do it all myself, sometimes creating a stressful work situation for myself however, It also gives me the motivation I need to finish the project quickly and efficiently.

You've just witnessed an employee walk to the front of the store, take a candy bar, unwrap it and eat it without paying. You feel that this is somewhat routine and has happened before. What would you do?

2 Answers

by telling security they can now watch employee. if employee is "taking" a candy bar, what else are they "taking"???? Less

My answer and first instinct was to tell security. He said that I was the first one ever in his interviews to say this. This is the answer to remember, and the one to use. Notifying a manager is correct as well, but telling security makes you seem more intuitive in the circumstances. Less

At times we all have to deal with difficult or angry customers. Tell me about a time when you were in this situation and how did you deal with it? What was the outcome?

2 Answers

Truth of the matter is, we've all been in this situation (unless you haven't worked before). Be honest and don't try to sugar coat your reaction to the situation. A manager, especially in retail, will understand. Trust me. Less

I have worked in the back office and had to deal with angry customers. Phone calls can be just as upsetting as face to face meetings. Less


Why do you want to do this job?
