- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Sea Mar in January 2015.Interview Details
I submitted my resume and cover letter and was called for an in-person interview a few days later.
I arrived ten minutes early. Two people interviewed me, person A was ten minutes late, person B was fifteen minutes late. Neither of them remembered to print the interview questions, so person B went out and asked a secretary to print them. Person A didn't have a writing implement to take notes, so the secretary had to bring that too. Neither person A or B was flustered by their lack of preparation, this appeared to be standard for their office environment.
I asked them how this position fit into their strategic goals as an organization, Person A told me they didn't have goals as an organization, but told me their mission statement.
I asked them what their 5 year plan was as an organization, person B said they didn't know if they had any long term goals.
Other than the interview question I posted below, everything was fairly standard. What are my biggest stregnths/weaknesses, why should they hire me over other candidates, what do I see as the pros/cons of this job, can I tell them about a time I faced a difficult task at work?
One thing to note, after the question "explain a time I faced a difficult task at work", Person A read the question "how do you deal with conflict with your co-workers" and then she said "oh, the last question was basically the same, let's skip this one". I told her that I thought the two questions were different and I would like to answer the question, she gave me a very confused look. She didn't seem to understand how the questions were different. To me, this is an example of further unpreparedness, I don't think she even looked at the questions before coming in to interview me.Interview Questions
