Are you the best in the business?
Question 1/6
Question 1

There’s never a dull moment here - multi-tasking and managing customers in store, online, and on the phone is standard and you’ll need to maintain the momentum. A customer has just entered the store whilst you’re emailing another customer. What’s the best way to respond?

Question 2/6
Question 2

As a Store Manager, you’ll also work with customers directly – taking pride in helping them select the right products and place their order. You’ve helped a customer choose some carpet and underlay and prepared a quote. Although the customer is happy with their choice, they say the price for the underlay is over budget. How would you respond?

Question 3/6
Question 3

As Store Manager, it’s your responsibility to keep on top of meeting the store’s targets, so that we remain the best in the business. Your Area Manager has emailed you the latest sales figures for your store, based on the previous week's sales. The store's bonuses are based on performance for the month, and you’re on-track to meet those targets. What would you do? Please choose one option.

Question 4/6
Question 4

We know that you’ll take more pride in working us if you get to work in a way that suits you best. Rate how true each statement is for you (1 - Strongly disagree; 2 - Disagree; 3 - Neither agree nor disagree; 4 - Agree; 5 - Strongly agree).

Question 5/6
Question 5

A vital part of your role is to motivate your staff, as much as support them. You review the monthly figures and notice that one of your Advisors has not sold as much underlay as expected this month. They’ve met their sales targets so far and are generally performing well. Their monthly 1:1 review is today. How would you approach this?

Question 6/6
Question 6

As a Store Manager, you’ll take pride in your store and be keen to ensure it’s the best in the business. This will involve completing and returning monthly compliance checks to the Regional Administrator. What would you do if something came up and you were unable to complete these checks on time?
