4 STRONG TIPS FOR PASSING YOUR AREA MANAGER INTERVIEW

TIP #1 – You will be assessed against your ability to lead and manage large area, team or department towards achieving the aims and objectives of the organization. On that basis, leadership and management competencies will form a large part of your interview. Prior to attending your Area manager interview, we recommend you prepare specific answers to situational-type interview questions that are based on the person specification for the role.

TIP #2 – The best way to prepare for an Area Manager’s interview, is to draw up a list of key duties and responsibilities for the role, and then think of specific situations you have previously been in, whereby you match the requirements of the specific task or responsibility. For example, as an Area Manager you will have to drive a team towards achieving difficult targets, and you will also have to use an innovative approach to problem solving. On that basis, think of situations you have been in during previous work-related situations where you have already achieved these types of tasks.

TIP #3 – When responding to the type of Area Manager interview questions explained in tip number 2 (above), structure your answers using the STAR technique. This will then ensure you provide strong, evidential-based answers that show the interview panel you already have the necessary skills, qualities and attributes to perform highly in this role.

TIP #4 – The role of an Area Manager requires a strategic understanding of the organizational aims and objectives. Therefore, during your interview preparation for this senior management position, study the mission, aims and objectives of the organization you are applying to join. When the panel ask you the question “Tell me what you understand about our organization, and in particular our future plans?”, you can refer to their mission statement and their key objectives.
