1. Explain me what do you know about our facility?

The interviewer is asking you this question to see if you did your homework on the organization or if you are merely floating your resume. Be sure to read up on the organization that you are interviewing with and have a few questions prepared. The interviewer is looking for a baseline of your knowledge and level of interest.

2. Explain me what is the average pay for a Clinical Allergy Technician?

Starting pay is typically $15 but you can negotiate for more if you have a degree and any prior clinical experience.

3. What knowledge do you have about the company as Allergist?

You should do your research prior to the interview. Look into background history of the company, this will help you stick out. Learn about main people, have they been in the news lately? The interviewer doesn't expect you to know dates and certain people, but showing that you have enough interest to research the company is a positive impression.

4. Explain me how do you feel about going to work each day?

I love going to work every day. Even on days where I know I have difficult patients scheduled, I know that my efforts and our services are improving their lives. My management and area team are extremely supportive, making the working environment a very enjoyable one.

5. Explain me what do you consider to be your best strength as Allergist?

This question allows you to brag on yourself, but keep in mind that the interviewer wants strengths relative to the position. For example, being a problem solver, a motivator, and being able to perform under pressure, positive attitude and loyal. You will also need examples that back your answers up for illustration of the skill.

6. Tell us how did you feel about telling people you worked at ABC Services?

I love working for this company. Our company values strive to promote revolutionizing allergy care in the US and bring it to areas that are more rural. Some people say this is a sales position but any hospital that isn't a non-profit works the same way. It is a business and I have learned an incredible amount about the business side of management in my three years with this company. I love my regional team and have a lot of respect for my supervisors, managers, and directors.

7. Tell us what experience do you have testing for gastrointestinal disorders?

Gastrointestinal food allergies are common in infants and children. Tell the interviewer about symptoms such as vomiting, reflux, abdominal pains, diarrhea, and constipation that you look for in your patients. The interviewer wants to hear how you handle your food allergy and sensitive patients. Describe how you instruct patients to keep a journal of the foods they eat and how and when they are instructed to slowly bring them back into their diet in order to identify the allergy.

8. Why do you believe we should hire you as Allergist?

This question needs to be carefully answered as it is your opportunity to stick out from the rest of the applicants. You should focus on skills that you have, including those not yet mentioned. Simply responding “because I'm really good” or “I really need a job” isn't going to work. You shouldn't assume the skills of other applicants or their strengths, focus on yourself. Tell the interviewer why you are a good fit for the position, what makes you a good employee, and what you can provide the company. Keep it brief while highlighting achievements.

9. Explain me Atopic and Contact Dermatitis/Hives/Skin Allergies?

Atopic and contact dermatitis, eczema and hives are skin conditions that can be caused by allergens and other irritants. Often the reaction may take hours or days to develop, as in the case of poison ivy. The most common allergic causes of rashes are medicines, insect stings, foods, animals and chemicals used at home or work. Allergies may be aggravated by emotional stress.

10. Explain me about a time when you had an angry patient or customer. How did you handle it?

Does the candidate have a patient-centric point of view? Is he able to diffuse or turnaround a potentially negative experience? Service recovery skills, which include listening and empathy, are key to medical staff success and patient satisfaction.
