    • "Corporate has developed an initiative to increase sales in your specified area. You don't agree with the initiative, and think it will negatively impact the sales performance of your department in general. What do you do?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I wouldn't negotiate unless you are coming from the outside, and have significant experience to bring. My promotions have all be internal, and I took what I could get! I've been somewhat satisfied with the pay increases with each promotion though; they were more that I was expecting.
