Part II…..When asked a question use you answer to relate a story based on experience. For instance I was asked what I liked least about my last job. I could have been real short and said paperwork. However I was specific and said that I worked on a new aircraft that was being tested so the paperwork was sometimes overwhelming. We had to make changes to all of the technical data as we went along even the grammatical errors so sometimes a 5 minute routine task would take an hour with paperwork. Treat it kind of like a conversation with someone you know who works there. Go ahead and ask a few questions. Many times they will ask you if you have any questions at the end of the interview. Especially if the interviewer(s) have been with the company for a while; I usually ask the interviewers what are their reasons for staying with the company. It will give a little more insight as to what the company may have to offer or the morale of the company. Also take a look at everyone’s mood and face. If they look like the night of the living dead or just beaten down it is probably not worth your time and not a fun place to work. I know you are maintenance; however, I would almost certainly wear a suit and tie unless it’s like Cooters Garage with two employees. If you believe they have an HR person and look like a decent size company you cannot go wrong with a suit and tie (no clip-ons).
Sorry if I rambled on or covered something you already knew. Try and give some more specific information on you post. I understand if you do not want to say the company because someone else applying may use “your lines.” At least elaborate on the industry and type of position as well as your experience level. Supervisors will be asked different questions than non-supervisors and well as someone with more experience will be asked different questions.
