- What types of questions are asked in the interview?
Heart 'n Home uses behavioral-based questions, as well as questions geared around the Family Core Values
. We believe the best way to predict the future is to know the past. That is the reason behind behavioral-based questions. We ask that all candidates treat these questions with the utmost honesty.
An example of a behavioral-based question is: "Tell me about a time when your work standard was above the standard?" The interview panel will be looking for three things, E.A.R. The E stands for Event, which needs to be very specific. Tell the interview panel the exact event when your work standard was legendary. Then the A, which stands for Action. Tell us about what action you took to create that legendary service. Lastly is the R, which stands for Result. Tell us the end result of your actions. Did your action create legendary service?
The above question is an example of what to expect with behavioral-based questions. Always take your time in thinking of appropriate examples that best suit the position you're applying for.
