When you are on the applicant side of the interview table, you may feel overwhelmed. Feeling daunted is normal. However, if this is the way you are feeling, how do you expect to excel at the interview?
The fact to remember here is that you actually have more power than you think. Even in a situation such as this, where things feel uncontrollable, you do have control over your actions and words.
But this control comes about only if you are aware of the fact that preparation is the key to success. The things that you should know about the company before you apply/appear for an interview include:
- How long has the company been in existence?
- What types of services or products does the company provide?
- Who are its major competitors?
- Who is the parent company?
- What geographic areas are covered?
- What is the employment strength of the company?
- What are the company’s assets and earnings?
Imagine having all this information in a pocket of your brain!
How will it affect your status at the interview? In a very positive manner!
So now that you know what to do before an interview, it is time to determine how to answer questions put to you during the interview:
Limo Driver Interview Questions and Answers
1. How are limo drivers different from taxi drivers?
In essence, they are the same. However, limo drivers are required to provide services to high-end clients on a regular basis, which is not what taxi drivers do. Additionally, they work for companies that provide limo services and do not necessarily own the vehicle themselves.
2. Why is customer satisfaction so important in this job?
Since a limo driver caters to the likes of movie stars and politicians, it is imperative for him to provide services that are aimed at customer satisfaction and return business. How a limo driver performs his work (take that as a professional manner) is how a limo company is perceived in terms of good service.
3. Where vehicle maintenance is concerned, what are the main duties of a limo driver?
Vehicle maintenance is on top of the list of work priorities for a limo driver. Preventative and regular maintenance includes ensuring that the vehicle interior and exterior are kept clean and polished, tire pressure is balanced, tire rotation is ensured, the vehicle is properly fueled, and that all fluid is appropriately leveled.
4. What is your pet peeve when driving a limo? How do you handle it?
It is particularly annoying when clients intentionally throw litter on the limo floor or wipe their greasy hands on the seats. Since customer satisfaction is a limo driver’s main concern, I do not point these things out to the clients. However, I do have a duty to write these in an incident report for my supervisor to see, who then handles things in his own way!
