If you are in charge of 30 people and there were 5 that were doing really well, 10 that were mediocre and 5 that were just not doing their job and not putting in any effort, how would you effectively better the situation?

4 Answers

I would have one on one with the 5 not doing their jobs and trying to determine if the reason they are not performing well had to do with them needing additional training or guidance before making a decision of firing them. Next I would have one on one with the 10 mediocre employees and find ways to motivate them to want to do better or see if them too need additional training or guidance. I would also have one on one with the 5 doing well to praise them for doing well and to show them their hard work is acknowledged and recognized. Less

I would find my last 10 employees :)

I would figure out the 'WIIFMs' for the 5 not putting in effort, and come up with a POA for them in a one-o-one session. Make the 5 good ones take some responsibility for the 10 mediocre associates, which would inculcate peer learning and inter- team interactions. Less

What kind of skills or experience do you have? What types of presentation software are you familiar with?

1 Answers

I interned with a consulting company for a year, and part of their consulting process was to give presentations to the employees on what we came to accomplish and what they can learn from it. This taught me a lot about how to give presentations. I became proficient in Powerpoint during the internship. Less

Would you rate face to face, blended or computer based training the best? Why and where specifically have you used each in sales training, leadership development, and customer service training?

1 Answers

I would rate blended training the best because it allows you to be flexible by letting you teach the more difficult material in class and save the easier material for the computer, where employees can go at their own pace. Less

I just went through their crap again after doing it a few yrs. ago - thought maybe it had changed. Nope. Same 'ol BS. Waste of time. They make it clear they do discriminate and are not interested in anyone unless they have a high IQ or are recent college grads. So the EEO statement is correct, but it doesn't say they can't discriminate because a person doesn't have an IQ that meets their levels. Less

I'm working on the practice assessment for the interview and frustrated with the math, it's been over 30 years since I've done any math like on this application. Yes, this is some basic, high school math, but I'm very far removed from needing to use algebra or trig. It's understandable that the company wants savvy employees, but this math is going to kill my chances to demonstrate my training skills! I am skilled at teaching others how to use their software or other tools, not in figuring relationships among numbers. Less

This review is a joke. Almost every job nowadays that's worth anything has assessments, sure this one was a little long but many other jobs have similar length assessments. The tests consisted of basic math, common sense, and made sure you could recognize patterns. It was not hard at all, so since you failed it twice that says a lot about you. And now you go on Glassdoor to give a 1-star review, because how dare they reject you for not being smart enough for the job instead of quickly giving you an offer because of an "inside recommendation". They dodged a bullet not hiring you. Less

They do not motivate their trainers at all, there is no encouragement as such. They do not provide with enough training or actual support and answers to your questions but rather leave them unanswered , be it management or training centre in the effing third world Less
