Starting interview process Monday for promotion
Saturday, January 28, 2012
Yikes!! It's been quite a while since I've really had to interview for a promotion...but this is a biggie...my district manager called me yesterday to ask if I'd be interested in taking over the store manager position in Springfield Illinois if (and it's a big if) that store manager gets the promotion that she's up for!
Then he called my store manager today to tell him that I'd be starting the interview process on Monday...will have phone interview with HR and another phone interview with zone vice president...yikes!! Seriously...my manager was telling me what sorts of questions they would be asking...apparently a lot about the P & L as well as those pesky behavioral/personality questions. Having conducted a lot of interviews, I know what they're looking for...and that will probably help...but I do need to go in to work in the morning (I'm not scheduled this weekend, but this is pretty important) and print out the various reports to review before Monday...want to get all of the numbers down pat as well as think about the questions they may ask and what my answers would be...I don't want to sound like I'm reading my answers, but I do want to be prepared.
This is exciting...and scary...all at the same time...wish me luck!
