Credit Card Officer Interview Questions

Credit Card Officer Interview Questions
    1. Question 1. Explain Me About Any Issues You've Had With A Previous Boss?

      Answer :

      Arrgh! If you fall for this one you shouldn't be hired anyway. The interviewer is testing you to see if you'll speak badly about your previous supervisor. Simply answer this question with extreme tact, diplomacy and if necessary, a big fat loss of memory. In short, you've never had any issues.

    2. Question 2. Tell Us What Do You See As The Important Future Trends In This Area?

      Answer :

      This works well for some positions – technical ones and leadership ones – and not well for others. It should be pretty obvious from the type of job you're applying for whether this question might be asked. If it is, it's easy to prepare for – just spend a half an hour reading some blogs on the specific areas you're applying for and you'll have some food.

    3. Question 3. Explain Me Are You Good At Working In A Team?

      Answer :

      Unless you have the I.Q. of a houseplant, you'll always answer YES to this one. It's the only answer. How can anyone function inside an organization if they are a loner? You may want to mention what part you like to play in a team though; it's a great chance to explain that you're a natural leader.

    4. Question 4. Explain Me About The Most Difficult Project You Ever Faced?

      Answer :

      The interviewer would usually care less what the exact project is. The question is mostly looking to see if you have faced serious difficulty and how you overcame it. For most people, this isn't their biggest success or biggest failure, but something that they turned from a likely failure into some sort of success.

    5. Question 5. Please Explain How Are You When You're Working Under Pressure?

      Answer :

      Once again, there are a few ways to answer this but they should all be positive. You may work well under pressure, you may thrive under pressure, and you may actually prefer working under pressure. If you say you crumble like aged blue cheese, this is not going to help you get your foot in the door.

    6. Question 6. Why Are You Interested This Position?

      Answer :

      This is actually something of a trick question, because it's just a way of re-asking the second question (what you know about the company) and the fourth (what you know about the position). It's asked because it tells whether people give flippant answers to questions (things like “because I'm a people person”) or whether they think about things and give a genuine question. This is a good question to formulate an answer for in advance – basically, just come up with a few things that seem intriguing to you about the company and the position and reasons why they interest you.

    7. Question 7. Explain Me Have You Done Anything To Further Your Experience?

      Answer :

      This could include anything from night classes to hobbies and sports. If it's related, it's worth mentioning. Obviously anything to do with further education is great, but maybe you're spending time on a home improvement project to work on skills such as self-sufficiency, time management and motivation.

    8. Question 8. Explain Why Did You Leave Your Last Position?

      Answer :

      Mostly, this is looking for conviction of character. A strong, concrete answer of any reasonable sort is good here. “I wanted to move on” is not a strong answer. Downsizing is a good answer, as is a desire to seek specific new challenges (but be specific on what challenges you want to face). Minimize your actual discussion of your previous position here, as you'll be very close to a big opportunity to start bashing your previous position.

    9. Question 9. What's Your Biggest Weakness As Credit Card Officer?

      Answer :

      If you're completely honest, you may be kicking yourself in the butt. If you say you don't have one, you're obviously lying. This is a horrible question and one that politicians have become masters at answering. They say things like "I'm perhaps too committed to my work and don't spend enough time with my family." Oh, there's a fireable offense. I've even heard "I think I'm too good at my job, it can often make people jealous." Please, let's keep our feet on the ground. If you're asked this question, give a small, work-related flaw that you're working hard to improve. Example: "I've been told I occasionally focus on details and miss the bigger picture, so I've been spending time laying out the complete project every day to see my overall progress."

    10. Question 10. Explain Me Are You Applying For Other Jobs?

      Answer :

      This is an honesty question. I'm looking for “yes,” but people who are trying too hard to feed me a line of nonsense answer “no.” The best way to answer is to say “Yes, in much the same way that you're interviewing other people. We're both trying to find the best fit for what we need and what we want.” If your answer is truly no, then say so – “No, I'm actually happy with my current position, but there were a few compelling aspects of this job that made me want to follow up on it” and list those aspects.

    11. Question 11. Tell Us What Relevant Experience Do You Have?

      Answer :

      Hopefully if you're applying for this position you have bags of related experience, and if that's the case you should mention it all. But if you're switching careers or trying something a little different, your experience may initially not look like it's matching up. That's when you need a little honest creativity to match the experiences required with the ones you have. People skills are people skills after all, you just need to show how customer service skills can apply to internal management positions, and so on.

    12. Question 12. Tell Me What Did You Learn From Your Last Position?

      Answer :

      Although it's fine to list a technical skill or two here, particularly if your job is very technical, it's very important to mention some non-technical things. “I learned how to work in a team environment after mostly working in solo environments” is a good one, for example. There should be no job where you learned nothing, and the interviewer is expecting that you learned at least a few things at your previous employment that will help at your current one.

    13. Question 13. So, Tell Me A Little About Yourself And You Experience?

      Answer :

      I'd be very surprised if you haven't been asked this one at every interview. It's probably the most asked question because it sets the stage for the interview and it gets you talking. Be careful not to give the interviewer your life story here. You don't need to explain everything from birth to present day. Relevant facts about education, your career and your current life situation are fine.

    14. Question 14. So, Explain Why I Should Hire You As Credit Card Officer?

      Answer :

      As I'm sure you know, "because I'm great" or "I really need a job" are not good answers here. This is a time to give the employer a laundry list of your greatest talents that just so happen to match the job description. It's also good to avoid taking potshots at other potential candidates here. Focus on yourself and your talents, not other people's flaws.

    15. Question 15. Please Explain Would You Rather Work For Money Or Job Satisfaction?

      Answer :

      It's not a very fair question is it? We'd all love to get paid a Trump-like salary doing a job we love but that's rare indeed. It's fine to say money is important, but remember that NOTHING is more important to you than the job. Otherwise, you're just someone looking for a bigger paycheck.

    16. Question 16. Tell Us What Are Your Long-term Goals – Say, Fifteen Years Down The Road?

      Answer :

      This is a great late question because it tells you whether the person is a long-term thinker or not. People that plan for the long term are usually in a good, mature mental state and will often wind up being stronger workers than people without long-term plans.

    17. Question 17. Tell Us What Sets You Apart From Other People That Might Apply For This Job?

      Answer :

      The answer is usually already known to the interviewer based on the resume, but this is a chance for you to really sell yourself. Most interviewers will usually sit back and see how well you can sell. On occasion, surprises can be good here, but this can be tricky – if it's something that should have been on your resume, why was it not on your resume? You're better off knowing what the cream of the crop of your resume is and just listing it out.

    18. Question 18. Please Explain A Suggestion You Have Made That Was Implemented?

      Answer :

      It's important here to focus on the word "implemented." There's nothing wrong with having a thousand great ideas, but if the only place they live is on your notepad what's the point? Better still, you need a good ending. If your previous company took your advice and ended up going bankrupt, that's not such a great example either. Be prepared with a story about an idea of yours that was taken from idea to implementation, and considered successful.

    19. Question 19. Suppose Your Previous Co-workers Were Here, Then What Would They Say About You?

      Answer :

      Ok, this is not the time for full disclosure. If some people from your past are going to say you're a boring A-hole, you don't need to bring that up. Stay positive, always, and maybe have a few specific quotes in mind. "They'd say I was a hard worker" or even better "John Doe has always said I was the most reliable, creative problem-solver he'd ever met.

    20. Question 20. Tell Me Why Are You Looking A Job (or Why Did You Leave You Last Job)?

      Answer :

      This should be a straightforward question to answer, but it can trip you up. Presumably you are looking for a new job (or any job) because you want to advance your career and get a position that allows you to grow as a person and an employee. It's not a good idea to mention money here, it can make you sound mercenary. And if you are in the unfortunate situation of having been downsized, stay positive and be as brief as possible about it. If you were fired, you'll need a good explanation. But once again, stay positive.

    21. Question 21. Explain Me About The Worst Supervisor You've Ever Had?

      Answer :

      These two questions simply seek to figure out what kind of management style will work best for this person and also how that person is likely to manage people. Let's say I work in an organization with a very loose-knit management structure that requires a lot of self-starting. If that's the case, I want to either hear that the “best” boss was very hands-off or that the “worst” boss was a micromanager. On the other hand, if I came from a strict hierarchical organization, I might want to see the exact opposite – a “best” boss that provided strong guidance and a good relationship or a “worst” boss that basically left the applicant to blow in the wind. Your best approach is to answer this as honestly as possible – the interviewer will have a good idea of the corporate culture and, frankly, if you try to slip into a company where you don't match the culture, you'll have a very hard time fitting in and succeeding. These questions might be worded as “what kind of management style works for you.”

    22. Question 22. Tell Me What Do You Feel This Position Should Pay?

      Answer :

      Surprising to many, this is often not salary negotiation. In most cases, the person you're interviewing with has little control over the final salary you'll get. It's usually used as a reality check – if you're hiring a janitor and they expect $80K, you can probably toss the resume right then and there. At the same time, a highly-skilled programmer selling themselves at $30K is also setting off some warning bells. A good answer is usually on target or a bit on the high side, but not really low or insanely high. I'd get an idea of the asking rate for the position before I ever go to the interview, then request about 30% more.

    23. Question 23. Please Explain What Is A Credit Default Swap?

      Answer :

      This question is more likely to be thrown at someone with previous experience in the field who is applying for a senior credit risk analyst position, but it still might show up in an interview for an entry-level credit risk analyst position with a bank. A good answer demonstrates you understand the concept, and a better answer likely includes an example. A credit default swap (CDS) is a frequently used method of mitigating risk in fixed-income, debt security instruments such as bonds, and it is one of the most common financial derivatives. A CDS is essentially a type of investment insurance that allows the buyer to mitigate his investment risk by shifting risk to the seller of a CDS in exchange for a fee. The seller of the CDS stands in the position of guaranteeing the debt security in which the buyer has invested.

    24. Question 24. Explain About A Suggestion That You Made That Was Implemented At A Previous Job?

      Answer :

      Since these answers usually are heavily involved with the specifics of the previous position, the specifics aren't really important. What's most important is that you actually have been involved in making a suggestion and helping it come to fruition, ideally with some success story behind it. Having done so indicates that you're willing to do the same at this position, which can do nothing but improve an organization. Not having an answer of some sort here is generally a sizeable negative, but not a “do or die” negative.

    25. Question 25. Tell Me What Aspect Of This Position Makes You The Most Uncomfortable?

      Answer :

      Most people think this is some sort of filter, but it's rarely used that way. This is actually an honesty question. No one on earth will like every aspect of every potential job – it's just not in us. Location? Working hours? People? The company's too big? The company's too small? Honesty really works here – I'd prefer to hear a genuine reason for discomfort (particularly one that comes from real observation of the company) than a platitude that isn't really a discomfort at all. A good way to answer is something like “I've never worked in a company this large before” or “I've heard some strange things about the corporate culture” or “The idea of working for a startup at such an early stage makes me nervous.”

    26. Question 26. Tell Me Are You Willing To Put The Interests Of Abc Company Ahead Of Your Own?

      Answer :

      Again, another nasty question. If you say yes, you're a corporate whore who doesn't care about family. If you say no, you're disloyal to the company. I'm afraid that you'll probably have to say yes to this one though, because you're trying to be the perfect employee at this point, and perfect employees don't cut out early for Jimmy's baseball game.

    27. Question 27. Please Explain As Anything Ever Irritated You About People You've Worked With?

      Answer :

      Of course, you have a list as long as your arm. But you can't say that, it shows you as being negative and difficult to work with. The best way to answer this one is to think for a while and then say something like "I've always got on just fine with my co-workers actually."

    28. Question 28. Can You Tell Me Where Else Have You Applied?

      Answer :

      This is a good way to hint that you're in demand, without sounding like you're whoring yourself all over town. So, be honest and mention a few other companies but don't go into detail. The fact that you're seriously looking and keeping your options open is what the interviewer is driving at.

    29. Question 29. Where Do You See Yourself In Your Career In Five Years As Credit Card Officer?

      Answer :

      This is something of a “junk” question, but it is useful in some regards as it filters for people with initiative. A person who answers something along the lines of “I'm going to be successful in this position that I'm interviewing for!” is either not incredibly motivated to improve themselves or isn't being totally honest. I'd rather have an answer that involves either promotion or some level of enterpreneurship – strong organizations thrive on self-starters. The only problem for potential interviewees is that some companies – weak ones, usually – don't want self-starters and are particularly afraid of people who dream of becoming entrepreneurs. Talking about promotion is thus usually the safest bet if you're not familiar with the culture, but I personally love it when people interviewing talk about entrepreneurship – that means they're the type that will be intense about succeeding.

    30. Question 30. Tell Me Have You Done Anything In The Last Year To Learn New Things/improve Yourself In Relation To The Requirements Of This Job?

      Answer :

      This is a great “deer in the headlights look” question, as most people simply don't have an answer. The best way to handle this question is simply to always spend some time working on your skills in whatever way you can. Write open source code. Participate in Toastmasters. Take a class. If you put effort into improving yourself every year, you'll not only have a strong resume, but this question will be a non-issue.

    31. Question 31. Tell Me Why Do You Want To Work At Xyz Company?

      Answer :

      This should be directly related to the last question. Any research you've done on the company should have led you to the conclusion that you'd want to work there. After all, you're at the interview, right? Put some thought into this answer before you have your interview, mention your career goals and highlight forward-thinking goals and career plans.

    32. Question 32. Please Explain Me What Motivates You To Do A Good Job?

      Answer :

      The answer to this one is not money, even if it is. You should be motivated by life's noble pursuits. You want recognition for a job well done. You want to become better at your job. You want to help others or be a leader in your field.

    33. Question 33. Please Explain Me Is There Anyone You Just Could Not Work With?

      Answer :

      No. Well, unless you're talking about murderers, racists, rapists, thieves or other dastardly characters, you can work with anyone. Otherwise you could be flagged as someone who's picky and difficult if you say, "I can't work with anyone who's a Bronco's fan. Sorry."

    34. Question 34. Explain To Me The Position You're Applying For?

      Answer :

      This is a “homework” question, too, but it also gives some clues as to the perspective the person brings to the table. The best preparation you can do is to read the job description and repeat it to yourself in your own words so that you can do this smoothly at the interview.

    35. Question 35. Explain Me Have You Ever Had A Serious Conflict In A Previous Employment? How Was It Resolved?

      Answer :

      This question mostly looks for honesty and for the realization that most conflicts have two sides to a story. It also opens the door for people with poor character to start bashing their previous employer, something which leaves a bad taste in most interviewers' mouths. The best way to answer usually involves telling the story, but showing within it that there are two sides to that story and that you've learned from the experience to try to see the other person's perspective.

    36. Question 36. Tell Me Have You Ever Been Asked To Leave A Position? Tell Me About The Experience?

      Answer :

      Obviously, it's great if you can answer “no,” but it's usually not a deal breaker if the answer is “yes.” In fact, a “yes” answer can be turned into a positive – it's a great way to show that you've made mistakes and learned valuable lessons from them. Be honest here, no matter what, but don't spend time bashing the people that let you go. Only discuss them with respect, even if you're angry about what happened.

    37. Question 37. Tell Me Do You Match Our Competencies?

      Answer :

      Unless you work in HR, the word ‘competencies' is probably enough to make you go to sleep. If you work in HR, it will probably be enough to make you spring out of bed. Given that HR play a key role in the interview process, you need to familiarise yourself with it either way.

      “Most clients are trying to drill down to a set of competency-based questions that they can measure objectively against,” says one head of HR at a large bank. “Look at the company's values and extrapolate from those values what their core competencies might be. For example, if a value is ‘client service,' the competencies might be strong team focus, thinking outside the box, or being a self-starter.”

    38. Question 38. Do You Know What Is A Good Debt-to-equity Ratio?

      Answer :

      You should definitely have a good, solid answer ready for this question, since the debt-to-equity (D/E) ratio is a key, if not the primary, financial ratio considered in evaluating a company's ability to handle its debt financing obligations. The D/E ratio indicates a company's total debt in relation to its total equity, and it reveals what percentage of a company's financing is being provided by debt and what percentage by equity. Your answer should show you understand the ratio and know that, generally speaking, ratios lower than 1.0 indicate a more financially sound firm, while ratios higher than 1.0 indicate an increasing level of credit risk.

    39. Question 39. Tell Me Have You Ever Had To Fire Anyone? Tell Me About The Experience?

      Answer :

      This is a question that is mostly looking to see if you have empathy for others. Take it dead seriously when answering – it should not have been an easy choice or an easy experience, but one that you handled and survived. Do not bash the person you fired, either – be as clinical as possible with the reasons.

    40. Question 40. Tell Me About Your Dream Job Now?

      Answer :

      Never say this job. Never say another specific job. Both answers are very bad – the first one sends the warning flags flying and the second one says that the person's not really interested in sticking around. Instead, stick to specific traits – name aspects of what would be your dream job. Some of them should match what the company has available, but it's actually best if they don't all perfectly match.

    41. Question 41. Explain Me What Was The Biggest Failure You Had At Your Last Job?

      Answer :

      It's usually good to pair these questions, but the important one is the biggest failure. The best applicant is usually someone who will admit that they made a disaster out of something (they're fairly honest and willing to admit errors) and that they learned from it, an incredibly important trait.

    42. Question 42. Please Explain Me Would You Rather Be Liked Or Feared?

      Answer :

      I have been asked this a lot, in various incarnations. The first time I just drew a blank and said, "I don't know." That went over badly, but it was right at the start of my career when I had little to no experience. Since then I've realized that my genuine answer is "Neither, I'd rather be respected." You don't want to be feared because fear is no way to motivate a team. You may got the job done but at what cost? Similarly, if you're everyone's best friend you'll find it difficult to make tough decisions or hit deadlines. But when you're respected, you don't have to be a complete bastard or a lame duck to get the job done.

    43. Question 43. What's Your Greatest Strength As Credit Card Officer?

      Answer :

      This is your chance to shine. You're being asked to explain why you are a great employee, so don't hold back and stay do stay positive. You could be someone who thrives under pressure, a great motivator, an amazing problem solver or someone with extraordinary attention to detail. If your greatest strength, however, is to drink anyone under the table or get a top score on Mario Kart, keep it to yourself. The interviewer is looking for work-related strengths.

    44. Question 44. Explain Me What You Know About Our Company?

      Answer :

      Do your homework before you go to any interview. Whether it's being the VP of marketing or the mailroom clerk, you should know about the company or business you're going to work for. Has this company been in the news lately? Who are the people in the company you should know about? Do the background work, it will make you stand out as someone who comes prepared, and is genuinely interested in the company and the job.
