room, desk and car which do you clean first21 Answers
desk room car
My reply to the interviewer would be: It depends on where I am spending the most of my time and which would have the greatest visibility to visitors or customers. If we are talking about work desk, then that gets cleaned first. If it is simply a home office desk versus the living room, the living room gets it first. If I use the car to often transport customers, then that gets my attention first. I want to try to make sure first impressions are good ones.
What makes you think any of the three are not clean already?
Are these things mine or someone else?
Depends on where i am now.
Room-need to sleep well to do well at work.
Car - in case interviewer walks me to mine after the interview. Although, if the interview is at my place of work (especially my home office), the desk & the room get equal attention - the car is hidden in the garage. Context does matter
Actually, I would clean out a closet first, so I would have room to store all the stuff I want to save out of my room, desk, and car.
This depends on your level of priority. If you let me know which is more important to the company then I could answer that question.
Me: Car, at least I can remember a time that it was clean and work my way back to it.
1. Depends on what you need to be cleaned first. Period. 2. I just cleaned my car. My room and desk are already clean.
Depends on which thing requires what amount of time, choose the task first, you can do in less time, so you can say you've accomplished something if asked some time later. Desk first, then room, then car.
This question is designed to test the divergence of your thinking. They never mentioned the size or the material from which your stapler was made from. Maybe the stapler is 50 feet long and made of gold? Perhaps made of copper? Notice the repetitiveness of the answers posted. Expect the same in interview sessions from one candidate to the next. Always answer in a way you know they wouldn't expect you to answer. That'll leave your mark.
ALL these oddball questions are designed to test the divergence of your thinking (to throw you off guard, see how well you think on your feet, etc) It truly is a chance to make your mark... how many times do you look back and say "oh, if only I had thought to say..." These questions are SO much more fun to answer anyway, and give you a chance to be a bit humorous, unexpected, or even serious - but it helps you to approach even the standard questions (asked by inexperienced and uncreative interviewers) with some new life!
Depends on which day of the week. If it's a Friday, I would clean up my Desk before I leave the office, so I get a clean desk on Monday morning. Then my room and on Saturday or Sunday my car. If it's in the mid of the week, then, my room, car and Desk.
1. desk - I get in regular contact with it with my hands. It also makes logical sense to clean it before the room since some dust/debris may fall on the floor. 2. room - I either spend most of my time in it or sleep in it. Enough said. 3. car - It doesn't get dirty fast because I don't eat, drink, smoke or store junk in it. Floor cleanliness does not adhere to the same standards as the house since it's being entered from the outside.
If they were ever dirty (highly unlikely) my first thought would be to start with whichever one was closest to you at the time you needed to clean it. Probably your room. If you clean your room, you'll have clean clothes for work and can find what you need to take to work (or your interview). If you clean your car next, the clothes you put on the next day for work (or your interview) will stay clean and you will have a place to put any of the things you take with you so you have easy access to them. So room comes before car. Now comes the tricky part. Did you just get hired? If so, the desk would come last, the minute you get to it. If not, the desk comes first. Clean it before you leave for the day so it is ready for you and looks spick and span for the company.
whichever is the dirtiest and whichever is more likely to be seen by an outsider....
Taking assumptions: Room- my office room where I spend 8 hrs. of my life everyday Desk- my work desk inside my office room Then my order would follow like car-room-desk B'coz I sit inside the car everyday to go to my office, then enter to my room and sit on my desk infront of my computer to work... I feel cleanliness and how you keep your surrounding area reflects your personality and working style. If you can't keep things in-order and in-appropriate way then how can one expect you to work in timely and orderly manner..!
Room, desk, car
The operative word is Clean. Having the need to clean implies having not maintained the original state and would also imply a lack of attention to the need to maintain the original clean or new state. A lack of periodic attention to the detailing of ones Desk, Room or the Car might imply being lazy or lacking in detail. Apply the Desk, Car, Room to any aspect of your daily responsibilities.
How would you handle a franchisee who did not want to follow an idea or suggestion you created?5 Answers
I would respectfully listen to the franchisees reasons and provide understanding. I would then use data to reinforce why I had arrived at the conclusion I had in order to give them the "whys" behind my decision.
Did they ever discuss salary.
We discussed salary vaguely. I asked about salary in early interviews and was asked what my requirements were. I said I wanted 60K and was told that wouldn't be an issue.
I find it deplorable that such large companies sully their reputations by not keeping potential employees informed. Sadly, when companies treat me this way I make it a point to stop wasting my money at their establishments. I also tell people I know and meet of this and, if I am lucky they stop spending money there as well (assuming they care about more than their own employment status).
Today, lets be real, company's are looking for candidates who can provide results, uphold the companys image - "candidates appearance", intellectual, and strong background with coaching and developing of staff. Too many times candidates feel that they are the right choice for a job, but the reality is your not the right choice based on your appearance, average interview, and lack of experience. Every answer given to a question may not be the right answer in regards to the company and the position you are applying for. If you are not hired, or receive an offer within the first 2 weeks of an interview, you probably not the right candidate. You failed, move on to the next opportunity. "Just a thought."
How would you handle an irate customer?3 Answers
Rather simple question but was asked for a step by step solution.
Use the acronym L-A-T-T-E L- Listen to the customer's concern A - Acknowledge their concern T - Take action to resolve their concern T - Thank the customer for their business E - Encourage them to return
Well it's a good thing someone would know that for the INTERVIEW question if it came up.
