Top Trainer Interview Questions & How To Answer

Here are three top trainer interview questions and tips on how to answer them:

Question No. 1: Have you ever implemented or modified a training programme? What was the outcome?

How to answer: Think of a situation in which you created a new training programme or changed an existing programme for an organisation. Use the STAR (situation, task, action, result) method to describe the situation and how the new training programme benefitted employees and the business overall.

Question No. 2: How do you train new employees?

How to answer: A trainer may work closely with new hires to train them on the company's processes, bring them onboard successfully and answer any questions they may have about their role. Use this question to describe any specific steps you take when bringing a new employee onboard and providing them with the resources they need to succeed.

Question No. 3: Describe how you engage employees when they take your training courses.

How to answer: Organisations may struggle with engagement among employees who are hesitant to take training classes or professional development opportunities. You might discuss incentives offered to employees who engage in training or growth opportunities afforded to those who continue to improve their skills.

So I actually kinda bothered them via email. As soon as I got the recruiter's email I had to keep up with them twice. They're more than happy to tell you what is going on. I'm sure if it was anything negative they would have contacted you already. Also it sounds like we got hired furing the same time if you're based in Chicago! Less
