Interview Question

Service Clerk Interview Miami Beach, FL

Background information: I have a BS in Psychology and

  almost 5 years of work experience in customer service. The difficult question was, "You're so educated/experienced! Why do you want to work here?" The easiest answer is "I don't want to; I need to", but you have to phrase it in such a way as to not come off as being as desperate for work as you may be. If you feel that you're too good for a particular job, try hard to hide it. Pride can be easily misconstrued as arrogance.

Interview Answer

1 Answer


"Well, in regards to education, a high school diploma is meaningless while a masters or doctorate are golden. I found out the hard way that we're reaching an age where a Bachelor's (especially in Psychology) has as much use in finding quality work (on its own) as a high school diploma. I'm essentially seeking work with Walgreens until I can become financially stable enough to go back to school to work on my degree."
