What actions would you take if you found that you are actually carrying too much inventory?

2 Answers

I would consider 1- Looking at demand patterns at other sites/regions and looking at moving inventory 2- Working with pricing team to offer discounts to drive demand 3 - Add it as a kit with another item and sell it 4 - Scrap it Less

Firstly, I would evaluate whether there’s a seasonality. (e,g, Prior to black Friday, we may encounter decrease in demand because people don’t buy until it’s black Friday. If there’s no seasonality issues - Short-term solutions : From demand aspect Increase demand by 1. Bundling 2. Discount (coordination with Pricing / Marketing team) From supply aspect : a. For non-perishable products that have salvage value – Return to supplier b. For perishable products – Resell it to bakeries or scrap them Long-term solution : Adjust the demand forecast model (increase forecast accuracy) Adjust inventory model (decrease safety stock) Less

What are your strengths and weaknesses?

1 Answers

I tend to be rather abrupt if I am interrupted while deeply involved in a task. I know that this is an issue and that I could sometimes hurt a fellow employee's feelings if I came across the wrong way. I also could sound this way on the phone if a call interrupted me thoughts. I recognize this as an issue that I have and it is something that I am trying to overcome. Before answering a co-worker or the telephone if I am interrupted, I stop and make sure that when I begin the conversation the inflection and tone of my voice are friendly and accommodating. Less

Hello. You say the entire process took 3+ months. I hate to ask but where you notified that you were not selected for the position? I interviewed with them and after the interview they told me that I would be notified in writing (mail) either way. I've heard that before in the private sector and we all know what that means, but based on the fact that it's a government organization I would think they actually would follow through and mail some type of response. Thanks. Less
