What was the hardest thing you ever had to do in your prior work experience?

9 Answers

Had to terminate a female employee who was badly injured from a fire. It had been proven via testimony to us that she covered herself with gasoline and lit it off to get even with a boyfriend, but she said it was due to an accidental kitchen fire. Fire Marshall report also verified she was not telling truth. Our policy said no coverage from 'self-inflicted' incidents and she had lied to us about the cause of the fire. As I told her she was being terminated, I was looking at a melted face, and compresses on each of her arms, and in a torso cast. This was three months post incident and investigation. You don't feel good after a day like that one! Less

This is a comment. Steve... wow. THAT'S not hard... that's unreal.

The hardest thing I had to do is doing something for others

I answered very well....

How long after the interview with hiring manager did you hear from them?

Immediately but you have to go through a long process of security checks on the control goods as required by the law. If you pass, you are safe but if you fail, you are done! Lol All the best! Less

What actions would you take if you found that you are actually carrying too much inventory?

2 Answers

I would consider 1- Looking at demand patterns at other sites/regions and looking at moving inventory 2- Working with pricing team to offer discounts to drive demand 3 - Add it as a kit with another item and sell it 4 - Scrap it Less

Firstly, I would evaluate whether there’s a seasonality. (e,g, Prior to black Friday, we may encounter decrease in demand because people don’t buy until it’s black Friday. If there’s no seasonality issues - Short-term solutions : From demand aspect Increase demand by 1. Bundling 2. Discount (coordination with Pricing / Marketing team) From supply aspect : a. For non-perishable products that have salvage value – Return to supplier b. For perishable products – Resell it to bakeries or scrap them Long-term solution : Adjust the demand forecast model (increase forecast accuracy) Adjust inventory model (decrease safety stock) Less

I was asked how I envisioned my role would be on a day-to-day basis.

3 Answers

That was difficult to answer because I was never at any time either in writing or verbally told what the job description was or even the job title was. I was supposed to guess based on...??? Somehow I was interviewing for a position which was a closely guarded secret. I am speculating but I think corporate HQ in New York was attempting to create an independent auditor position in Kentucky accountable and reporting to New York. The managers in Kentucky were not able to meet the expectations of New York and inventory showing on-hand in databases was not always accurate. Less
