“I am an ambitious, supportive, attentive and standards-driven Deputy Manager who has gained lots of experience dealing with challenging situations, managing lots of different teams and helping my employer achieve their operational and commercial goals. Some of the more notable experience I have gained includes helping the General Manager to create operational policies and procedures, assisting in the hiring of staff and making sure teams deliver on the standards expected by our customers.

I believe I am the best candidate for this post because not only will I take my duties seriously, I will also always act in the best interests of the organization whilst helping to take some of the pressure off the General Manager.”

SUGGESTED ANSWER

“On the rare occasions I do apply for new jobs, I am always very careful who I apply to work for. I think it’s important to work for a company as a Deputy Manager that has a strong and trustworthy reputation. You should also choose a company that will support you in your role and who wants to continually grow, improve, and develop. As soon as I saw this Deputy Manager’s job advertised, I knew I wanted to apply. You have a strong reputation amongst your customers, you train your staff up to be the best they possibly can be, and you always take the time to listen to your customers which enables you to create products and services they want to buy. If I am fortunate enough to become your Deputy manager, I believe this is somewhere I will stay for a long period of time. You are a great organization, and this is the only place I want to work.”

4 TIPS FOR PASSING A DEPUTY MANAGER INTERVIEW

The following four interview tips will help you to succeed during your Deputy Manager interview. Make sure you read them and apply them throughout your interview.

TIP NUMBER 1 – One of the most important things to do in the build-up to your Deputy Manager interview is to RESEARCH the company you are applying for. Look at their products, the senior management team, the company vision, and mission statement, and learn as much as possible about their latest news stories. This will enable you to answer confidently the interview question: “Tell me what you know about our company?”

TIP NUMBER 2 – During your Deputy Manager interview you will be asked questions that assess your previous experience in situations that are equal to the role. The questions are more commonly known as behavioural interview questions. Think of previous situations you have been in where you have managed a team of people, managed an underperforming member of staff, provided or facilitated excellent customer service, and also worked hard under pressure.

TIP NUMBER 3 – When responding to behavioural or situational interview questions, structure your responses using the STAR method. This is a great format to use, and it follows: SITUATION, TASK, ACTION, and RESULT.

TIP NUMBER 4 – Throughout your Deputy Manager interview, make sure you demonstrate you can be supportive of your General Manager – to achieve this, take the time to study the job description or the job advert for the role. This will give you an idea as to the level of support they are looking for from their new Deputy Manager.
