Top Training Specialist Interview Questions & How to Answer

Here are three of the top training specialist's interview questions and tips on how to answer them:

Question No. 1: How would you handle an employee who does not think that your training session is valuable or necessary?

How to answer: This open-ended question is designed to showcase your interpersonal skills. Provide examples of how you would speak to such an employee about their feelings toward the training session and how to overcome that obstacle in order to have a successful training session.

Question No. 2: Where would you start when defining the training needs of a company?

How to answer: This open-ended question provides your future employer with a glimpse into your educational background in terms of training programmes. It allows you to demonstrate your fundamental knowledge of developing training programmes based on a company's individual needs and its employee base. Walk them through the process of designing training needs from start to finish to demonstrate your understanding and knowledge base.

Question No. 3: Did you ever experience a time when your training didn't give the results you wanted, and how did you handle the situation?

How to answer: This open-ended question reveals any possible weaknesses you may have experienced, but it also allows you to demonstrate how you were able to learn, grow and develop from that weakness. Share the training session, your desired outcome and the actual outcome, along with any speculation you may have about why the training programme turned out the way it did. You should also share any reflections and revisions you have made to alleviate the issue in the future.

I think “accepted offer” is a default option which you must select before post any interview reviews. Just called GE guys and they said it's still in the process of reviewing 1st round stuff, but around 500+ applicants makes this super tough lol Less

Scenario: If you were running late for a job interview and you had no lights on in your apartment. Let's say you went into your dresser drawer and had to pull out one pair of socks. All you had was black or brown socks. And there were 5 socks total, what is the least amount of pulls you could do?

4 Answers

You have to pull out three socks to be sure that you had at least two of one color. Less

it's 2. You could be lucky and get 2 socks of the same color.

it would have to be three socks because if you pulled just two, you could get one black and one brown. Less

ASHREI Professional Services Corporation

Don't remember much on questions. CEO bragged alot about himself and asked about my resume.

4 Answers

Told him about my experiences.

Alternate position of assistant was offered to determine level of applicant's commitment to company, although originally responded to a director position. Wanted to see if applicant was just looking for ANY job. Gave off air of superiority, as if job was beneath "dignity". Clearly had trouble understanding industry and business model. As a Life & Health insurance brokerage, explained to applicant that she could write her own major medial insurance policy, once licensed, and would receive a commission as a result---which is standard industry practice. Just did NOT get this concept at all. If so confused about job, AND had such a negative impression of management and company, why accept job offer and waste so much time and training resources? All of which could have gone to someone who actually wanted the job. I am the company's founder. It is a fact. How is explaining the company's origin to a prospective employee bragging exactly? Less

FYI. Employee was terminated for cause.
