Top Technician Interview Questions & How To Answer

Here are three top technician interview questions and tips on how to answer them:

Question No. 1: Can you describe a challenging project you encountered and how you overcame this challenge?

How to answer: A hiring manager asks this question to gauge your technical expertise and problem-solving skills. Use the STAR method to talk about a situation, task, action and a result that addresses this question. For example, suppose you are a field service technician.

How to answer: Demonstrate that you have relevant soft skills by describing those that suit job duties, such as attention to detail, accuracy and problem-solving abilities. For example, if you are a computer technician, talk about how your attention to detail improves the maintenance work you perform on information technology systems.

Question No. 3: How do you keep yourself informed about developments in this field?

How to answer: The hiring manager asks this question to evaluate your professional skills in maintaining current industry knowledge. Discuss the techniques you use to stay updated about industry information, such as reviewing industry news, reading peer-reviewed journals in your field and participating in relevant professional events.

How would you deal with telling a customer no?

7 Answers

The. Customer is always right. I would assist the customer look for the item and after not finding the item I would have the department Manager check in the back and then offer substitutions. If that is unacceptable I would check nearby Kroger’s. Less

I wouldn't tell them no bluntly, I would understand their request and then talk to the nurse in charge, telling them what the patient thinks he/she might need. Less

Well, you never say "no" to a customer. I would just offer alternative solutions. Example, if they want fresh peaches and we don’t have them, offer the frozen ones or maybe even canned ones? Less
