Q1. Tell me about yourself and in particular the skills, qualities and attributes you possess that are a match for this management role?

SUGGESTED ANSWER:

“If I had to describe myself in a few words, it would be that I am hard-working, professional, dedicated and committed to achieving the strategic aims and objectives of my employer through strong management skills. I have been working towards this position in management for a number of years now, and I have been waiting for a manager position to come up with your company in particular. I pride myself on setting high standards and feel you would be extremely pleased with my ability to not only motivate and lead my team, but also inspire them to be the best they can be and consistently improve the company we are working for.

Q2. Why do you want to become a manager with our company?

SUGGESTED ANSWER

“During my research into your company, three things stood out. Firstly, the way in which you strategically manage and run your business is exemplary. There are lots of positive comments made online about your organization, and this demonstrate you are a great company to work for who cares about the service it provides. Secondly, the ‘latest news’ section on your website tells me you are innovative and forward-thinking, which makes you even more attractive to work for. Finally, I want to stay in a management role for a long time and gain stability with my employer. You are clearly a leader in the industry and that fills me with confidence that I will be able to thrive in the role of manager and be able to contribute positively by leading the team towards achieving your company goals and targets.”

Our Manager Interview Questions and Answers guide is designed to give you a set of unique answers to the most common and difficult management interview questions asked during this type of interview.

5 TIPS FOR PASSING THE MANAGER INTERVIEW!

TIP #1 – Managing in any organization, large or small, requires a unique set of skills and talent. As a manager you need to lead, make effective use of resources, manage, inspire and motivate. You also have to take full responsibility for the performance of your team. During the management interview, when asked what makes you a good manager, utilize all of these skills and be prepared to give specific examples of when you have successfully demonstrated each one of them in a previous role.

TIP #2 – Manager interview panels often make good use of behavioural and competency-based interview questions. Questions such as, “When have you managed an underperforming member of staff?”, and “Describe a time when you used effective negotiating skills in a management role?” are commonplace in this type of interview. When answering questions of this nature, we recommend you use the S.T.A.R. technique for structuring your responses.

TIP #3 – At every opportunity during the manager interview, we strongly recommend you use evidence-based answers to the questions posed. Do not fall into the trap of giving generic answers (what you would do in a given situation), but instead give answers that show the panel what you have already done in a previous situation. Evidence-based responses are far more powerful and will win you the interview!

TIP #4 – As a manager, you will be expected to have carried out in-depth research about the strategic aims and goals of the company you are being interviewed for. Visit their website and find out as much as possible about the organizations aims, goals and strategic performance data over the preceding 12-months. We also recommend you take the time to find out as much information as possible about their products and services, and what their core business is.

TIP #5 – Tip number 5 of your manager interview, is in respect of the questions to ask at the end of your interview. This is your chance to show you are an intelligent, caring and forward-thinking manager. Here are 3 questions designed to show the panel you are exactly those things:

QUESTION – Who is your greatest competitor and how could I help you in this role to better them?

QUESTION – What are the strategic plans for the company over the next few years?

QUESTION – Do you have any new products or services coming out this year?
