Charter One Interview Questions

It’s important to practice some common interview questions once you’ve submitted your Charter One application to give yourself a good chance of employment.

What is your biggest weakness?  This can be a difficult question to answer but it is possible to come out looking good so long as you always talk about what you are doing to improve yourself, such as taking on extra training.

Can you sell me this pen? Sales are a huge part of most jobs in this industry so practice before the interview.  If you have previous experience then now would be the time to use it, if not then always focus on customer needs above all else.

Have you ever come into conflict with a coworker? Again this can be a difficult question but remember they’re looking for people who are innovative and outspoken but are also able to maintain a professional environment.

What would you do if you saw a coworker stealing?  There are many security policies and procedures that you’ll be expected to stick to, but show that you can be trustworthy and keep to company policy.

Tell me about a stressful situation that you successfully overcame.  When answering questions like this always relate it back to the job description.  Pick a professional example that demonstrates the skills necessary for the career you want.
