If a product shows up on a Negative Inventory Report, what would you do?

1 Answers

I said I would research the sales history of the product to see if that is what caused the negative availability. I would also look at the movement of the product such as PO receipts, variance adjustments and inbound or outbound transfers that may not have been processed. Once the root cause is found, that would determine the correction process which may entail a cycle count, receiving / adjusting a PO, process a return / exchange of a sale if it has been determined that the wrong product was rung up, Less

If you were at a party would you be more of the person standing in the corner or the person in the center of attention.

4 Answers

There is no wrong answer, but the question is made to get you to discuss what kind of person you are. Many companies are very team driven. So if you say you are the center of attention, mention that you still like to get everyone's input and talk to everyone at the party. Less

I would be the person in/at the center of attention and not just for all the attention but because I don't drink nor smoke but I do love to have fun and love to dance even if I dance alone. I like to make people feel comfortable and see that I am approachable and that I get along with everyone and not standoffish. Less

I think it depends on what position you are applying for. What does the job require. Less

2 Answers

Be more on top of employee's activities and increase employee knowlege of products they are handling. Less

To change the departmental process to increase efficiencies, you can follow these steps: 1. Analyze the current process: Review the current process and identify the areas where there is a scope of improvement. Identify the areas where there is redundancy or any unnecessary steps. Identify the factors that are making the current process less effective and where the bottlenecks are occurring. 2. Define Your goals: Define the objectives you want to achieve by changing the process. It can be reducing the time required for completing the task or reducing the cost. Setting clear goals will help you to identify the areas of the process that need change. 3. Involve Employees: Involve the employees who work on the process and get their feedback. Employees are the best source of information on what works and what does not. By involving them in the change process, they will be more likely to support the new process and will feel valued. 4. Redesign the process: Once you have analyzed the current process, identified the bottlenecks, and obtained feedback from your employees, redesign the process. Focus on the areas where you have the scope of improvement to increase the efficiencies. 5. Implement the new process: Train employees on the new process and provide them with the necessary resources to implement the new process. Implement the process in a phased manner to minimize disruption, and monitor the process closely. 6. Evaluate and Improve: Evaluate the new process and measure its efficiency regularly. Identify the areas where improvements are required and adjust your process accordingly. By following these steps, you can change the departmental process to increase efficiencies. Less
