I can’t imagine that it will be difficult too understand Jade’s British accent…

Friday, October 30th 2015

“How would you deal with an angry customer?” I would apologise to the customer.

Really? And what is the customer has it all wrong? The customer is king, but not the emporer.

“I would tell the customer to relax.” That sounds more like it if you ask me. Take it from there.

Friday, October 30th 2015

Thanks for the information

Friday, October 30th 2015

Friday, November 6th 2015

Thanks for excellent examples. The advices are really useful.
I just want to share two more questions that I was asked in interview. It were tricky ones))
‘What do you see yourself doing 5 and 10 years from now?’ (As HR told me, the right answer depends on personality with whom you have the interview. But better to convince that you have particular plans in your brain)
‘How much money do you need to make to be happy?’ (No philosophical thoughts, they really wanted to know the quantity of money)

Saturday, November 7th 2015

    thank you for sharing,question is realistic
