Fulfillment Center Distribution Manager was asked...April 25, 2015

From the math test staffing situation: If one person leaves this position early because he gets sick, how would you reassign the remaining employees in order to ship out the correct number of product for the day?

1 Answers

This was the question I stalled the interviewers on initially because I had manipulated the initial numbers in the math question to give me a buffer of employees in two areas so this wouldn't be an issue. Apparently no one else thought about people calling in sick or not showing up to work, so I think I impressed at least one interviewer by thinking ahead in this situation. Less

Just general background questions about your resume and if you could perform the job functions the position required. They asked why are you looking to leave your current job?

1 Answers

I messed up and explained I was looking to leave the company I am currently with for several reasons which would benefit me. Companies want to hear how you are going to be a benefit to them, not how the company is going to benefit you. I have not interviewed in over 13 years, so you have to get familiar with what companies are looking for in answers to specific questions. Bottom line, stress how the company can benefit from hiring you and you can't go wrong. Less
