  • STAFF APPRAISALS – As the Assistant Manager you will normally conduct staff appraisals to ensure each team member is working towards the mission, ethos and goals of the company.
  • WORKING WHILST UNDER PRESSURE – Assistant manager roles inherently come with an element of stress and pressure. Therefore, you will need to demonstrate an ability to remain calm and composed during difficult situations with a clear focus on resolving them as efficiently and effectively as possible.

5 TIPS FOR PASSING THE ASSISTANT MANAGER INTERVIEW!

TIP #1 – During your Assistant Manager interview, be sure to provide evidence of where you meet the key qualities and attributes of leadership, being able to plan and prioritize, conduct appraisals of staff and also support your manager in his or her goals and targets.

TIP #2 – You will be asked questions during the Assistant Manager interview that are based on the assessable competencies of management, leadership, communication and being able to work under pressure. Make sure you have specific examples for all of these scenarios.

TIP #3 – When responding to the behavioural interview questions, we strongly advise you use the S.T.A.R. method for structuring each answer. At the end of the STAR technique, we also advise adding an additional R (for reflection) as this is one of the key requirements for the role of Assistant Manager. You should have the ability to reflect upon your own and your team’s performance with a view to developing and improving.

TIP #4 – You will be required to show your capability of supporting your manager in his or her duties and undoubtedly the main manager will form part of the interview panel. In addition to answering each of the interview questions fully, it is our advice to ensure you connect with the manager as you will need to work closely alongside them at all times. The ‘likability’ factor and how well you can get on with the manager will come into the play at some stage during the interview.

TIP #5 – At the end of your Assistant Manager interview, you will be given the opportunity to ask questions. Our advice is to ask the interview panel how you could support the manager in your role as his or her assistant with a view to helping the company or organization grow and develop.
