1. Why did you leave your last job as Cloth Washer?

Whatever the situation was from your previous job, you should always answer this question with a positive and enthusiastic response. If the reason for leaving your last job was redundancy, then you should talk about how your company had to restructure, instead of focusing on your own personal situation.

Under no circumstances should you criticise your previous employer, as this will appear unprofessional.

2. When was the last time that you thought outside of the box? What did you do?

While playing with my sisters dog my 2 year old sister ran out of my parents room crying because my mom refused to play with her so instead I went and picked her up and hand her a tennis ball and imitated throughing it till she followed my lead and threw it for the dog to chase after while I got the ball back from the dog and continued doing this not only makeing the dog happy but my little sister to at the same time.

3. What are your salary expectations as Cloth Washer?

Many consider this question to be a loaded gun – dangerous in the hands of the inexperienced. Often times, an interviewee will start talking salary before they've had an opportunity to illustrate their skill set and value making any sort of leverage valueless. Here, knowledge is power, as salary often comes down to negotiation. Do some research into your industry to establish base rates of pay based on seniority and demand but keep in mind – your employer is hiring you for what they believe you are worth, and how much benefit they feel you will provide.

4. How would you describe your work ethic?

I want to do it right the first time I work on it and have the customer and my employer happy and satisfied with the job I have performed.

5. Why did you choose to become a Dry Cleaning Worker?

Currently at my own home I am the primary person in charge of sorting and cleaning the laundry and felt this would be a good form of employment.

6. Explain me about your ability to work under pressure as Cloth Washer?

I'd like to think I react to situations as opposed to stress. The reality is, when handled correctly, many problems avoid becoming unnecessarily stressful. Come to think of it, I belive I actually work better under pressure. It's help me produce some of my best work and to be honest I like being challenged. From a stress management point of view, I like to burn off the day with a workout or by going for a run.

7. What do you like most about being a Dry Cleaning Worker?

I enjoy the physical proof of a good job being done aka clean cloths without stains or tears marring there surface.

8. Could you tell me a little bit about your computer skills?

I know how to access and work most Microsoft programs and how to use browsers to the fullest of my knowledge.

9. What do you see yourself doing in five years as Cloth Washer?

This one is all about job commitment.

Some people make job hopping a career in of itself, and your answer here can be telling. Here, your interviewer is determining if you are:

☛ someone who sets goals
☛ someone who has a vision
☛ someone who is reliable
☛ someone who demonstrates commitment
☛ someone who is loyal

While no interviewer expects someone to stay at a company forever, try and craft your response in such a way that shows progression in your career, and alignment with the Company's needs and future. Again, self awareness is key – your employer doesn't want to send you down an unwanted path, resulting in wasted time and energy for everyone.

10. Why do you want to work as Hotel laundry attendant for this organisation?

You will now have the chance to demonstrate that you've done your research, so reply mentioning all the positive things you have found out about the organisation and its sector etc. This means you'll have an enjoyable work environment and stability of employment etc – everything that brings out the best in you.
