Why did you leave your last job?
Although I thoroughly enjoyed working my last job, I decided to leave for a few different reasons. Working a graveyard position does have benefits, but being away from my wife and son at night made this a difficult position to work in. I also really enjoy talking to people, and providing my customers with the best customer service possible. Unfortunately, while working a graveyard position, I interacted with few customers throughout the night. My primary focus was prepping for the following day, and these tasks did become monotonous.
What experience do you have in this field?
Since this is my first job, I didn’t have much experience in the field. I had to learn how to prepare foods, properly clean and sanitize dishes, and use the cash register. I also had to learn how to do cash-ins and cash-outs, as well as cash drops. This was all new to me. On the other hand, I’ve been in Internet Marketing since 2008, so customer service came as second nature. The customer is always right, and I always know that I need to put the customer first, in any business situation.
Do you consider yourself successful?
I definitely do consider myself to be successful. Success is defined by your daily ability to focus on tasks that will make you successful. Success is also defined by the happiness that you receive by performing these tasks on a daily basis. I’m successful because I enjoy what I’m doing, and I’m persistent at reaching my goals every single day. On a more basic level, I see success as having a roof over my head, and being able to feed my family every single day. For those reasons alone, I’m both successful and blessed. I couldn’t ask for anything more.
What do co-workers say about you?
My co-workers say that I’m nice, enjoyable to be around, and hardworking. When it comes to me being nice, I like to always put others before myself. I always like to do my best to help others, and I always like to be sure that I’m respecting everyone who I come into contact with. I believe I’m enjoyable to be around because I respect others, but I also like to have a good time. I like to joke around, but be serious when it comes to completing tasks. Finally, coworkers say that I’m hardworking because they see me rushing to meet deadlines. If I have 5 minutes left in my shift, I don’t wait for my shift to end and then hand my job over to the next employee. I rush, sweating if I have to, to complete the necessary tasks to get the job done.
What do you know about this organization?
I know that this organization was founded over 10 years ago, and started off on a small scale. I also know that they’re a franchise, and have grown into a huge organization over he years. I know that this organization strives on customer satisfaction, and a system that allows for things to be done in the shortest amount of time possible. It goes without saying that this is the most well-known organization in its’ niche, on the planet.
What have you done to improve your knowledge in the last year?
I’ve done many things to improve my knowledge over the past year. I’ve taken a number of business classes, and I’ve also taken a class on sales persuasion, which came to be very useful in work, and in my Internet Marketing business. I’ve also been reading many success books, and the one that really comes to my mind is, “4-Hour Work Week.” This book has taught me how to better manage my time, and focus only on tasks that will bring success my way. Before “4-Hour Work Week,” I would waste a lot of time on tasks that didn’t do me any good. Today, I only focus on tasks that will bring me in income.
Are you applying for other jobs?
I’m for many jobs. Right now, I’m applying to be a writer across many freelance writing websites on the Internet. I’m also applying for jobs at a few different call centers. In the future, I may consider personal training and medical assisting. For now though, my main focus is getting a job with your organization, which is my top priority. Still, I do have to apply for other jobs for the sake of my family, and keeping food on the table, and a roof over our heads.
Why do you want to work for this organization?
There are a few reasons I would like to work for this organization. For starters, I will be working during the day. Graveyard is killing me, and it would be nice to work normal hours. The great thing is, I can choose to work 3, 13-hour shifts, 4, 10-hour shifts, or 5, 8-hour shifts. Next to getting 40-hours a week, the base-pay is roughly $14.00 an hour, and I’ve heard that benefits are included. Most importantly though, I will finally be talking to customers.
Do you know anyone who works for us?
I actually don’t personally know anyone who works for you. I’ve had a few people come in and talk about their experiences with you. Unfortunately, I don’t know anyone directly who has experience working in this position. The feedback I’ve received has been positive, and it’s lead me to applying for this job opportunity.
What kind of salary do you need?
I don’t need a salary, as long as my hours are consistent. What I would like is to start off with the base pay of $14.00 an hour. From there, I would like to work my way up to team-leader, and eventually get to $20.00 an hour. If salary is an option, I would like to be making $5,000 a month. $5,000 has always been a goal of mine, and that would make my family and I more than comfortable. We’d also finally be able to begin saving up for a house.
