General Discussion > Panel Job Interview > View Post
Most were behavioral based interview questions. If you are not familiar with that, I strongly recommend you Google it for some help as this is the method most companies, especially the bigger ones are using now. What they want with that is all your answers to be based on prior work experiences.  You want to utilize the STAR method in answering all the questions which means Situation, Task, Action, Result.
Example Q's: Tell me about a time you mentored someone at your job, what were the challenges and how did you help that persons personal development? Or tell me a time you went above and beyond in the way of customer service at your previous job. Example Answer: Old lady bought a big screen TV and it wasnt working and she had no means of returning it and was very upset she was gonna miss her favorite TV show that night. (situation)  Saw this as an opportunity to go above and beyond and not only fix the problem but make a customer for life and enhance the brand image. (task) I physically loaded up a new TV for her and drove it to her house and installed it. Took old TV back to store and refunded it. (action) Customer was extremely satisfied that we would do that for her and was very relieved she did not have to figure out how to get the TV back to the store. (result)
Often one person will ask you the question and after you answer another may ask a follow-up question about your answer or want some sort of clarification. Usually they take turns asking the questions and whoever doesn't ask the main question they will often ask a follow-up.
As for me I'm in Phoenix. Just moved out here from Michigan back in January, so still adjusting to the Wild West. Best of luck in your interview!

Try to be just as comfortable as if you were interviewing one-on-one. Make sure you engage all the panelists...don't lock in on one person, make sure you are making eye contact with them all. There isn't much more to it than that. Be expecting rapid fire questions, just stay cool and calm. It's goal is to see how well you handle the pressure. Just relax and don't let the fact that there is multiple people in the room psyche you out. I just had one last week and those are the best tips I can think of. Good luck

-125/105. Verlander pitching twice and Rangers have 3 lefties starting vs predominantly RHH Tiger lineup. Rangers short favorite at most.

Yankees are the play for the series


Good teams are supposed to beat bad teams. And Cleveland didn't suck for the first 81 games. Detroit went 18-8 vs playoff teams, with a winning record over every one. 4-3 vs. NYY, 6-3 vs. Texas, 6-1 vs. TB, 2-1 vs AZ. Overrated teams don't win 95 games in MLB no matter what division they are in.

It was just cramps from the 90 degree heat in Tampa. Nothing more. Stafford is completely healthy and will dissect the Chiefs d.

From article:

"Female prisoners waited in a long line Saturday to receive their cup of ice"

"They're just doing this for the media attention. This cup isn't
going to do anything (to cool us down)," said Danielle Meek, 32, of
Phoenix.

Doesn't sound like unlimited ice to me...not to mention this lovely tidbit:

After receiving the ice, a few complained to media members that the
fans near their beds were broken and the intense heat was causing their
shoes to melt.

Yep, Sheriff Joe great guy.

It was 145 DEGREES inside Joe's prized "Tent City" over the weekend. And there was Joe with the media and a temperature gauge, bragging that he gave the prisoners ONE 6oz cup of ice to help keep them cool. But then he says I hope they don't expect it often, or something along those lines. Mind you 'Tent City' is mainly non-violent offenders. This man is the biggest piece of shit walking the Earth.

Anibal Sanchez is far from underachieving. He has had 2 bad starts all season. Other than that he's been really damn good. 14 of 17 starts with 3 ER or less. 111K in 109 IP.
