5) What is your greatest weakness?
You want to answer this question in a way your greatest weakness does not impact your ability to work at Smoothie King. You should state something like:
- I am a workaholic and I neglect my friends and family or
- When I get caught up in my work I don’t take enough personal time for myself.
6) How would you deal with an upset customer?
- I would find out what is wrong with the customer. If it was the product I would offer to replace it (mention you would check with your manager first) as it is important to keep the customer happy as an unhappy customer will never return.
7) Where do you see yourself in five years?
- This question is designed to see if you have goals but, more importantly, it is designed to see if you are a good fit for Smoothie King. For example, you are a good fit if you say you want to get into restaurant management or something along the lines of health and nutrition.
8) Why should I hire you?
- For this question, you need to think of the skills that Smoothie King is looking for. Skills that come to my mind are communication skills (to work with coworkers and customers). They will need someone who is a fast learner (learn the products, and work the cash register), and someone who is punctual.
So when asked why should I hire you state:
- I have excellent communication skills and will always treat the customer with respect.
- I am punctual and I understand how important it is to start a shift on time.
- I am a quick learner and will not have issues preparing Smoothie Kings products or learning the point of sale system.
9) What would you do if you saw a co-worker taking money from the cash register?
- I would report him/her to my manager. Theft impacts not only the franchise owner but other staff members as well. It is important to everyone that Smoothie King makes a profit.
10) What salary are you looking for?
- More than likely they will pay you minimum wage. You can always counter the question and ask, “What is the range?” Then you can counter and ask for the high end of the range.
