Here’s the FULL LIST of the TOP MANAGERIAL INTERVIEW QUESTIONS:

Q1. Tell me about yourself.

SUGGESTED ANSWER:

“Over the years, I have built up considerable skills and attributes that have enabled me to become a competent manager. I am a decisive decision-maker, I have the tools and resources needed to get the most out of my team, I am a strategic thinker, and I always seek to continually improve and grow within any managerial role that I occupy. For example, in my last managerial position, I helped the organization implement a new set of operational policies and procedures that enabled the organization to not only improve operational efficiency but also increase turnover by 20%. There comes a significant amount of responsibility with being a manager and in the work I do for your company, I will always put your commercial and financial objectives above everything else.”

Q2. Why do you want to be a manager?

SUGGESTED ANSWER

“I want to be a manager primarily because of the level of responsibility that comes with the position. We spend a lot of time at work and I want to be in a role where I can influence the success of the organization I am a part of. Being a manager is challenging, and you have to constantly think on your feet. You must always try to be one step ahead of everything, and you have to use effective motivational and leadership skills to persuade your team to believe in your vision. Over the years I have studied other managers to see how they make the decisions they do. I have also read numerous books and studied online courses to ensure I have a broad knowledge base of different management techniques and ideas that are at my disposal. If you hire me as your manager, I am entirely confident you will quickly see a positive impact within the organization and the team I am responsible for.”

Managerial Skills and Qualities – What You Need to Become a Formidable Manager!


A manager needs a diverse and broad set of skills, qualities, and attributes to succeed. The following examples will give a manager everything they need to deal with a wide variety of situations and challenges.

The most important skills and qualities needed to be an effective manager include strong communication and interpersonal skills. Managers must communicate their vision and ideas with clarity and purpose. An effective manager will build strong relationships with their staff, with the senior management team, and with external stakeholders and partners. Great managers are decisive decision-makers, and they will often use an innovative approach to solving problems. Whenever problems occur, which they inevitably will do for a manager, they must assess the risks, weigh up their options based on the facts, and make decisions that are in the best interests of the organization.

Managers need strong leadership qualities. A team will rely on their manager to provide direction, motivation, and reassurance when times are tough. Competent and effective managers also need to utilize strategic thinking skills. A manager must be capable of looking at the wider picture and remember that decisions, whilst sometimes unpopular, should always focus on enabling the company to achieve its commercial goals and financial objectives.

Finally, a great manager will be good at organizing and planning, they will be capable of delegating tasks to the people most suitable within their team, and they will be willing to mentor their staff. A manager has the responsibility to help their team grow, develop and ultimately achieve their full potential.

MANAGERIAL JOB DESCRIPTION – THE ROLE OF A MANAGER

HOW TO PASS A MANAGERIAL JOB INTERVIEW – 5 CRUCIAL TIPS!

Richard McMunn has over 27 years’ experience as a manager and leader both within corporate organizations and the UK Fire Service. His experience at management level is unquestionable and the following 5 tips will help anyone to successfully pass their job interview at this level. Reach each of the tips carefully and use them as an aid to passing your managerial interview.

MANAGERIAL INTERVIEW TIP #1

The first managerial interview tip is to ensure you understand your own style of management and how this is applied in different situations. One of the more common managerial interview questions asked is, what’s your management style? Remember, there are many different styles of management you can utilize, depending on the situation you are in. Choose your style carefully and make sure it is appealing to the organization you are applying to work for.

MANAGERIAL INTERVIEW TIP #2

Be prepared for a series of tough managerial behavioral interview questions! These include, when have you turned around an underperforming team, tell me about a time when you took control of a difficult problem and, tell me about a time when you dealt with a conflict between two team members. When answering behavioral interview questions for managers, be sure to give a specific situation you have previously been in, and don’t forget to use the STAR technique (see tip number 3 below).

MANAGERIAL INTERVIEW TIP #3

Whenever you answer a manager behavioral interview question, use the STAR technique to structure your response. The STAR method is a great way to ensure you get the highest scores possible when answering these tough interview questions. The STAR technique involves:

SITUATION: Explain the situation you found yourself in.

TASK: Outline the task that needed doing.

ACTION: Provide details about the action you took to achieve the task.

RESULT: Finish off and detail the results following your actions.

MANAGERIAL INTERVIEW TIP #4

A great way to improve your chances of success during your managerial interview is to make sure you have a plan in place of what you will do in the role within the first 30 days of starting. This demonstrates you are a forward-thinking manager who has a plan for everything!

MANAGERIAL INTERVIEW TIP #5

At the end of your managerial interview, the panel will offer you the chance to ask some questions of your own. Use this as a further opportunity to prove to the organization you care about their future success, and that you plan to stay working for them for a long time. Here are three smart questions to ask at the end of your managerial job interview:

QUESTION – What has frustrated you about managers who have held this or similar positions in the past?

QUESTION – What are the major challenges facing the organization right now and how can I help you to overcome them?

QUESTION – What’s the first thing you would need me to concentrate on in the role if I am successful?
