Minimal honestly. But in school I did contribute sparingly to a newsletter that covered local restaurants in the area. It was a small, college town so it gave me a chance to work pretty closely with the business owners.
I would relate to them on their level. This business is incredibly hard because you deal with sick and dying patients. All these clients want is to be understood. After they are calm we can come to a conclusion.
This was from the personality test. It still cracks me up to this day.
Well, the HONEST answer is True, at least for me and pretty much everyone I know. Lol I don't remember what the "Correct" answer is...
I hate this kind of job application questions and I hate them something fierce! They are so unrealistic in the answer you HAVE to put down. And you have to answer with a "Strongly" in it. It's too bad it took me years of trial and error and no help at all from anyone since they started these quiz questions at the right time for a paper-application taught guy like me to graduate high school in 2001.

This stuff is a joke because they in a way make you lie in order to pass it. For this question you have to answer strongly disagree because this shows that you can handle stress and can more easily work with people.
I think this is a question to see if you're answering honestly. The obvious answer is true.
Yes, this interview is extremely telling. thrity percent on notice for supposed performance issues, which are not real, they are contrived. You will feel helpless as you watch your manager create and distort your performance. The goal is to move you out. Chances are good your manager who isdistorting your performance and busy moving you out will be under the same corrective action process. Strange secretive organization which is ultimately failing in the marketplace versus competitors.
All true and very accurate. Evaluation system has created a nonproductive environment. Amazing how the managers tasked with putting their people on corrective action sell them out. And it is true, they create very bogus performance critique. It is truly shocking. I have seen instances where the manager himself cutting someone out is then within months, pushed out the door. Hilarious. This organization will be the most disfunctional you will ever work for. The underlying current is so real you can feel it there. There strategies to gain market share are just as equally inept and inneffective. Channel distribution favors competitors. Sad because products are very good and can compete, however they don't in many parts of the country because of incompetent management and flawed ineffective strategies attempted year after year!. It clearly is a throw it against the wall for a couple of years and see if it sticks!

This posting explains a lot! My hiring manager didn't reveal how many were on notice (corrective action) at any one time and it didn't occur to me to ask. In my position, distributors say eight new faces in ten years. The Bird is the one place I've seen where you can be 100% of plan and be put on notice and once on notice, getting off (aka corrective action) is unlikely. That question should be warning to all. You can do the job and still be put on notice with little understanding as to why.
Delete old emails, restart the phone, try emailing on another device,
1. I'd start by apologizing for the inconvenience. 2. Empathize with them, let them know how you'd feel if you were having problems with your email. Create the connection. 3. Ask some questions (are they WiFi or 3G/4G) 4. Ask them to restart their phone and check email again 5. If that doesn't solve it, start getting into more tech questions (looking into the email account settings on the phone, who are they using as their email provider)
First, empathize. "I'm sorry to hear you aren't getting any of your e-mails. It's happened to me and it feels as though you have been disconnected from work, friends and family. Let's see figure out together what's wrong." Then move into asking simple questions about connectivity. 1. Ask if they are on WiFi or Cellular data (3G, 4G or LTE) 2. If WiFi what's the signal strength. It looks like a signal strength icon or a fan, it's next to your carrier's name. 3. If cellular data, how many dots are showing. Assuming all of that checks. Ask them to open Safari and attempt to access CNN.com. CNN's web page shows the time and date (in Eastern) from this we can determine if the phone can access the internet. If that works ask them what e-mail client they are using, not everyone uses Apple Mail. also ask them which e-mail service they are using (iCloud, Gmail, work e-mail, etc...). Have them start and restart that specific app. Check their e-mail again, are they getting any. If that doesn't work, have them restart the iPhone. While they are doing that ask if you can send them a test e-mail that way we know if the phone is getting e-mails are not for sure. This will give them something to do while waiting for the iPhone to reboot. From here it gets more technical; but you should have shown you understand not the customer's problem but the at least the basics of solving it.
