1. Tell me do you think you would be a good adviser to me? Why?

You ought to think about what kind of answers you would want before the interview. Then, as you get responses from the advisers, you'll have a better idea whether this adviser is suitable for you and may be a better fit than the others you are considering.

2. Tell me how do accept criticism?

This is a team player question and is asked to see how open and willing you are to being asked or told what to do. Are you someone who can follow directions? Can you accept criticism? Or, are you the type of person who does not like being told what to do or being criticized?

3. Where do you expect to be in five years' time as Personnel Adviser?

This is another question that allows you to show off your employer research and your understanding of your chosen career path. You'll want to come across as enthusiastic, but not arrogant. Tailor your response to reflect the nature of the organisation, the sector, and your own experiences and skills. Specific details will impress.

4. Explain me what types of customers are you comfortable working with?

I provide an extensive offering of services including advising on financial budget and planning. I have mostly worked with corporations in the past, but I am also comfortable with handling individual finances. I am dedicated to providing the best services appropriate for each situation.

5. Tell me how do you get along with different types of people?

The workplace is loaded with a variety of different people with varying personalities and the interviewer wants to know how you think you will fit in.

When answering interview questions with HR, you want to show your interviewer that it does not matter what kind of people you work with – just that work gets done. This shows the interviewer that you are more concerned with outcomes than personalities.
“I work well with anyone who delivers what they promise.”

6. Explain me what investment firms do you use in your practice?

Vanguard, Fidelity, T. Rowe Price, and Schwab are among the better choices. Dimensional Fund Advisors funds are low costs but may make it difficult to extract yourself. Be cautious if the answer for investments is an insurance company.

7. Tell me how do you maintain client loyalty?

Regular updates and communication are an important part of maintaining client relationships. I regularly contact them with updates, and I am always available to address concerns as quickly as possible. If there is a specific issue, I set up a face to face meeting to resolve these concerns.

8. Tell me an example of a major organizational change that you contributed to?

These human resources interview questions explore your organizational awareness and your ability to identify potential organizational problems and opportunities from an HR perspective. Focus on your interaction with a wide range of people in the organization and your ability to stay in touch with what is happening at all levels in the organization.

9. Tell me do you accept fiduciary responsibility?

This is a legal term meaning they have a fundamental obligation to provide suitable investment advice and always act in your best interests, not theirs. They should also be willing to give you a written statement that they accept this responsibility.

10. Do you know the cost change if an employee leaves?

Because pricing is often based on whether or not a particular candidate gets hired, many clients will want to know if a new employee leaves the company shortly after they are brought on board. It is very important for a recruiter to have this policy laid out as clearly as possible upfront so that there is no question later on. Most recruiting agencies offer rebates for such situations, based on a sliding scale, depending on the length of employment.
