Would you say this job interview went bad or good?

Would you say this job interview went bad or good? Topic: Ups jobs application status

Question: Well, I applied for my first job at iparty for seasonal job and got an interview. I went today and he asked me questions about what policies i disagreed with at my school, an example of a fight that i had with a friend, how often I'm late for school, and what my best skills were and what i could improve on. I told him that I disagreed having to wear ids at my school for the entire year because it becomes redundant after a while, that an example of a fight would be an argument over a subject such as a movie and that we don't get into any real fights, that I'm never late for school, and that my best skills were that I'm reliable and hard working and that I could probably work a little better on hard working. He also asked how I heard about the job and why I'd be interested in working there. I told him that i had a friend who worked there recently that said it was fun and that I love halloween/costumes and that I thought it'd be a fun place to work. He also just interviewed that same friend recently because he also applied and got interview for seasonal again as well. Did this hurt my chances at all? After all the questions, he then brought me to the aisles and asked me what I would do if a customer asked me for suggestions if they wanted to be a pirate or a zombie. So i picked out things here and there and it seemed like it went alright until he asked me what make up I would pick for someone who was black (he was black) that wanted to be a zombie and I kind of blanked out. He cut it off shortly after though and said "alright, enough torture for now. heh" and looked at my application and said that he'd check up on my references and give me a call if I got the job. He also told me how much I'd make in an hour and that it was good that i can work weekends. I've heard from people that this is a good sign, is this true? I kept good eye contact throughout the entire interview and didn't really pause on any questions, but I'm really nervous. What do you guys think? This go decently good or bad?

It is hard for me to say because I wasn't there. As long as you were dressed appropriately and you were pleasant without seeming immature it sounds like you have a good chance. The only thing that concerns me is that the reason you said you wanted the job was because your friend said it would be fun. I wouldn't have mentioned the friend and that you thought it would be fun. I think it would have been better to say that you like Halloween and that you like decorating and picking costumes for Halloween. You were stump on the zombie thing but, that is a question you are going to face. That is why he asked you. I would wait a couple of days and call to check up on the status. Good luck.

You should start working on your resume and get an idea of what you want to say in your cover letter. Research each company to get ideas on how to put in keyword phrases, a computer may be reading your resume. Once you have a killer resume and cover letter, here are some interview tips Do your homework.Research the company beforehand so that you can showcase that knowledge during the interview. The internet is a great resource, you can google the company, check business journals for company information, like ranking, sales, mission statement. This will give you a background and later you will be able to ask informed question. Know where you’re going. Make sure to find out where the office is and how to get there. There are several free sites devoted to directions, Mapquest, Google Maps and Yahoo maps. Know how long the trip will take. Take the name and phone number of the person you’ll be meeting with. Know what the parking situation is, adjust your time accordingly. Save yourself time and unnecessary stress by knowing these things before heading to the interview. Dress the part.As an Employment Specialist I have experienced this first hand. Two job candidates, different skills, both had criminal background. One gentleman was applying for a warehouse position. He had a suit on. The employers response, “finally someone to interview. The other candidate, more qualified, he would’t take out his facial piercing, no job. Interviews, but no jobs. Your clothing should be neat, pressed, and professional looking. As it can be difficult to know the culture of the office environment beforehand, err on the side of conservative. However, don’t be afraid to inject some personality into your look, and don’t neglect the details. Make sure to have a fresh haircut and clean, manicured nails. Rehearse beforehand.Prior to your interview, prepare answers to common questions the interviewer is likely to ask, such as What are your strengths and weaknesses? Why do you want to work here? Why should we hire you? and the ever popular Tell me about yourself. You can download interview questions. Conduct a mock interview with a trusted friend as practice. This works best if you can record it. This way you can see what your body language is saying as well. Non-verbal communicates makes up to 80% to 90% of the message being sent. Secure your references.Get the details, numbers, address, etc. Bring in letters if you have them. Find at least three key people — former supervisors, colleagues, or instructors — who are willing to serve as your professional references. Be sure to secure their permission beforehand, and be certain that they will speak highly of you if contacted by a potential employer. If you don’t have three professional references, use clergy members. Arrive early.Be sure to arrive at least 15 minutes before the interview. Visit the restroom and check your appearance in the mirror. Announce yourself to the receptionist to let him or her know that you have arrived and that you have an appointment. Turn your cell phone off so it doesn’t ring during your meeting. I have an employment resources blog that covers resumes and cover letters and lots more check it out http://www.bestemploymentresources.com

First of all Sariah & Vara V are tricking you, when you click on the link on that website to register it means she gets $$ from that company because you clicked on the link. Before the interview, research their website for the companies history, etc & practice remembering the information like how long they've been in business, how many branches they have, how many employee's, what they sell or deal with, etc. ALL companies ask at the interview, so what do you know about our company? The more you can remember, the more impressed they will be. Also if the company has just released a new product or something then it helps to mention that too & say something complimentary about the product (on their website they might have links to recent newspaper articles their company has been mentioned in & that's how you find out about their new product or whatever). When they ask you what your faults are, never admit to having one that will prevent you from getting the job. For instance if it's a desk job working on a computer, don't tell them your fault is that you have a problem with attention to detail sometimes & never say you are sometimes late or that you have time management issues. Instead tell them you are not good at public speaking as the job you are going for does not need you to do public speaking so they won't care if that is an area you are weak in. Prepare some questions to ask them about their company as they will ask you if you have any questions (this is difficult as they often do this at the end of the interview when they've already explained everything). Ask about the working hours (but never ask about the pay) & ask if they have a staff social club, how many people are in your team, etc as it shows you are really showing interest in what it's going to be like to work there. Ask them about their company culture & how would they describe it. Ask them about their induction programme & if you get the job what is the training procedure & what computer system they use. At the end of the interview thank them for their time & ask when you can expect to hear from them.

First research the company, try to come up with some questions about the company to ask during the interview. Second don't be late, dress professional (you will be surprise on what and how some people dress today), extra copies of your resume, you may think you will meet with the hr manager and that is it, until 2-5 managers ask you questions. Third be prepared to answer any questions on your resume Forth, Relax, make eye contact Fifth most important have fun, if you don't hear back an interview is an experience. Good Luck

A lot of the time when they look at you, its a tactic to get you to elaborate more. Or she could have just been taking everything you said in. Theres nothing wrong with taking a second to think about what your about to say before you say it in an interview... in fact its expected. Hopefully you will get your call, it you dont there are plenty of other options out there.

1. Research. Find out a little bit about the company you want to work for. Visit the location in person if it is a store or building open to the general public. Visit the company’s Website and talk to anyone you might know who works there. What kinds of products or services does the company make or sell? What types of people work there? What are the typical hours this position requires? What are some of the day-to-day tasks that the job involves? Make notes of things you want more information about and ask the employer about them at the end of your interview (it’s always a good idea to have a few questions to ask the employer, anyway!). Researching a company and the position make you stand out in an interview. It shows that you are really interested in working there. For more information on how and why to research a company before you interview, click here. 2. Practice It sounds funny – and it looks even funnier – but practicing out loud for your interview will help you sound more polished and concise and less nervous in the actual interview. List a few key things you want the employer to know about you, and review common interview questions. Formulate answers to those questions and answer them out loud while looking at yourself in the mirror. This exercise prevents you from rambling in the interview and sounding unpolished and unsure. It also helps you discover what really does make you the best candidate for the job! 3.Dress to Make a Good First Impression. In an interview, first impressions do matter. The best way to ensure a good first impression is to dress smart. If you are interviewing for a job in an office, it is usually best to wear a dark-colored, conservative suit (for both men and women). If you are interviewing for a job where the dress code is more casual (at a factory or a construction site, for example), nice slacks and a collared button-down shirt with a tie for men and a nice dress or blouse and slacks or skirt for women are usually appropriate. You should avoid wearing excessive jewelry, perfume, and flamboyant clothes. Good personal hygiene is also important. If you are unsure what to wear, you should always go with the most conservative, professional option. Most experts agree it is better to be overdressed than dressed too casually. What you are wearing tells employers a lot about how serious you are about getting the job. Find out more about how to dress for an interview here. 4. Be Conscious of Good Interview Etiquette. This list could go on forever – there is literally an endless array of “dos” and “don’ts” for an interview – and not everyone agrees on every aspect of that list. There are, however, some basic “interview etiquette” tips that are important to remember. (For a more comprehensive list, click here). Be on time for your interview. This is, perhaps, the most important. Employers expect employees to arrive on time to work. They may see a person who is late to an interview, when he or she is supposed to be showing his or her best side, as someone who will have difficulty arriving on time to work or meeting deadlines if hired. Be aware of your body language. When shaking hands, make sure your grip is firm and confident. Have good posture, but avoid appearing like you’re as stiff as a cardboard cutout. Even the most experienced professionals get nervous in an interview – it’s normal. However, if you appear too nervous, the interviewer might draw the wrong conclusions about your ability to do the job – especially if it involves interacting with people! Conversely, make sure you don’t slouch – this could give the impression that you are lazy or uninterested in the position. Maintain eye contact with your interviewer to convey confidence. When speaking, be polite and professional and avoid using slang and profanities. The more confident and polished you appear the more likely you are to leave the interviewer with a positive impression of you. Keep the interview positive. Avoid making negative remarks about any previous jobs or employers. Also, refrain from complaining about any job-related tasks or responsibilities you were given in a previous position. Employers want to hire someone who is positive, enthusiastic, and able to meet and deal with challenges. 5. Be Prepared to Ask the Interviewer Questions. This is where your research comes in. Employers want to know if you’re truly interested in the position. They also want to know that you have all the information you need to make a decision, if offered the job. It isn’t a good idea to turn the tables and “interview” the interviewer, but it is a good idea to go into the interview with a few questions in mind. This is your chance to ask additional questions about the business, the position, the requirements, and the expectations of the person who will fill the position.
