Usually, if the answer to a brainteaser seems too easy, chances are the answers wrong. And in this case, the answer is not zero degrees. The hour hand, remember, moves as well. That is, in addition to the minute hand. And so, at 3:15, the hour hand and the minute hand are not on top of each other. In fact, the hour hand has moved a quarter of the way between the 3 and 4. This means its moved a quarter of 30 degrees (360 degrees divided by 12 equals 30). So the answer, to be exact, is seven and a half degrees (30 divided by four).
Well, the right answer is yes and no. Good personal relations can improve the overall performance of a team. But on the other hand, you should not let your emotions to affect your decisions in work.

I believe my biggest weakness In Achievement First is wanting to help anyone I can help. What I mean is I am willing to take on task that are not my job. I want to learn all I can. However, that has helped me get promoted or even asked to help in times of need in other department. I have been know as the “go to person” when help is needed.
Example: “Success to me means achieving my goals while helping others do the same. I believe that when we all work together, we can accomplish anything. In my last role, I helped create an after-school program where students could get extra help with their homework. The program was so successful that other teachers started asking us for advice on starting similar programs at their schools.”
Example: “I begin by reading through my curriculum guide or textbook to get an idea of what we’ll be learning that day. I then write out a plan for the entire week’s lessons so I know exactly what topics we will cover each day. Next, I create a list of any supplies I need to have on hand for the class period. Finally, I set up my classroom with all necessary supplies before the bell rings.”
This question is a great way for employers to learn more about your interest in their school. They want to know that you have done some research on the institution and are excited about what they do. When preparing for this interview, read through the Achievement First website or any other materials they provide. You can also ask someone who works there about the benefits of working at the school.
Example: “I want my students to feel confident in themselves and their abilities. I want them to know that they can achieve anything they set their minds to. I believe that if we teach our children at an early age that they have value and worth, then they will grow up with confidence and self-esteem. I am passionate about helping students reach their full potential.”
Example: “When I was working as an assistant manager for my high school’s basketball team, we were playing against another school with a much taller team. We had practiced our plays extensively, but I knew we would need to come up with some new strategies if we wanted to win. During halftime, I gathered all of the players together and explained that we needed to play defense differently. They listened carefully and followed my instructions during the second half of the game, which helped us win.”
