Ann Taylor Interview Questions And Answers

What Is Your Greatest Weakness?

This question is also pretty common in any industry, and in retail it’s a way of assessing your self-awareness.

How to Answer:

Impress your manager with your understanding of the corporate vision. If the company you are applying to is a conglomerate (like L Brands, the umbrella for Victoria’s Secret, Bath and Body Works, and PINK), your answer should include knowledge of both the larger company and the individual brand to which you are applying. The easiest way to find out what a brand stands for is to read the ‘About Us’ section of their website. You can craft a stellar answer to this question by using the company’s own buzzwords in your response.

So if you were interviewing for a retail role at PINK, you’d look at the L Brands ‘About’ section, which says: “Although our brands are primarily known for lingerie, personal care, beauty products, and accessories, our brand power extends much further. Together and individually, these brands have come to represent an aspirational lifestyle—a way of life. Our brands help customers feel sexy, bold, and powerful. They entice customers to pamper and indulge themselves and to add a dash of whimsy and fun to their everyday lives. Our brands invite customers into a whole new world of beauty and style.”

Then an example answer for this sort of company might look like this:

“I want to work for L Brands because I love how sexy and stylish your products make me feel, and I want to help other women feel beautiful and bold in their daily lives. To me, PINK is more than just comfortable clothing and lingerie, it’s a way of life that says I deserve to pamper myself in little ways every day.”

It is becoming increasingly important for medical assistants to be knowledgeable about computers. If you are a long-time computer user with experience with different software applications, mention it. It is also a good idea to mention any other computer skills you have, such as a high typing rate, website creation, and more.

There could be a multitude of things to discuss here: Business ethics (wrongdoing), inconsiderate teammates, non-supportive management, a product that does not do what youre promising customers and so forth.

Make sure you share a story that demonstrates your presentation skills in front of many people. If you are really brave, offer to give a snippet of that presentation to the interviewer. This will definitely be different from what most people do.

Many managers mistakenly think that money is the prime motivator for their employees. However, according to surveys by several different companies, money is consistently ranked five or lower by most employees. So if money is not the best way to motivate your team, what is? Employees three most important issues according to employees are: ☛ Respect ☛ A sense of accomplishment ☛ Recognition

If asked this question, be honest and specific about your future goals, but consider this: A hiring manager wants to know ☛ a) if youve set realistic expectations for your career, ☛ b) if you have ambition (a.k.a., this interview isnt the first time youre considering the question), and ☛ c) if the position aligns with your goals and growth. Your best bet is to think realistically about where this position could take you and answer along those lines. And if the position isnt necessarily a one-way ticket to your aspirations? Its OK to say that youre not quite sure what the future holds, but that you see this experience playing an important role in helping you make that decision.
