65 Hospital Manager Questions and Answers:

1 :: Tell us what do you see as the future of health care?

With a wider variety of providers on care teams operating at the top of their licenses, I think it will be vital to pay attention to every perspective. Collaborative and connectivity apps will help providers build a cohesive team in patient care

2 :: Explain me if There Were Three Of Your Closest Friends Sitting Right Here, What Would They Say About You?

This answer tells me more about the social skills of the applicant and their ability to get along with others in the office. It also gives me more insight into their real personality.

3 :: Please explain what Do You Know About Crr Rate?

CRR stands for Cash Reserve Ratio. It is the amount of funds that a commercial bank will have to keep with the reserve bank. If a bank brings down the rate with the RBI, the reserve will automatically come down and if there is an increase, there will be an increase in the reserve as well.

4 :: Tell us what Would Your First 30, 60, Or 90 Days Look Like As Deputy General Manager?

Start by explaining what you'd need to do to get ramped up. What information would you need? What parts of the company would you need to familiarize yourself with? What other employees would you want to sit down with? Next, choose a couple of areas where you think you can make meaningful contributions right away. (e.g., "I think a great starter project would be diving into your email marketing campaigns and setting up a tracking system for them.") Sure, if you get the job, you (or your new employer) might decide there's a better starting place, but having an answer prepared will show the interviewer where you can add immediate impact-and that you're excited to get started.

5 :: Can you explain me is There Anyone You Just Could Not Work With?

No. Well, unless you're talking about murderers, racists, rapists, thieves or other dastardly characters, you can work with anyone. Otherwise you could be flagged as someone who's picky and difficult if you say, "I can't work with anyone who's a Bronco's fan. Sorry."

6 :: Tell me what Do You Know About The Company Global Guideline?

Any candidate can read and regurgitate the company's "About" page. So, when interviewers ask this, they aren't necessarily trying to gauge whether you understand the mission-they want to know whether you care about it. Start with one line that shows you understand the company's goals, using a couple key words and phrases from the website, but then go on to make it personal. Say, "I'm personally drawn to this mission because…" or "I really believe in this approach because…" and share a personal example or two.

7 :: Suppose thinking Back To Your Last Performance Review, Explain What Performance Areas Were Reviewed And How Did You Fare On Each One?

This question tells me how serious the candidate's last company was about employee performance and whether the candidate actually cared about/paid attention to how s/he did in each area and was being rated.

8 :: Explain me what challenges are you looking for in this general manager’s job?

Asking a question like this is vital so as to get an insight into not only how quick the individual can think and work under pressure but how the candidate plans on using his or her experience, skills and qualifications to face various challenges that might come up along the way, if hired to become the general manager.

Based on the answer given you might gauge if the candidate is the sort of person that is afraid of a challenge or if he or she is the rare kind to be motivated by the appearance of a challenge and is willing to face it head long.

9 :: Do you know where do people usually eat lunch?

Do they take the time to go out? Do people bring lunch but eat in groups? Do folks normally eat at their desks because they're too busy to socialize? Asking this question serves as a great way to find out a little bit about the company culture. Plus, this is a more lighthearted question that might relax a stiffened atmosphere or lead to a conversation about shared interests.

10 :: Tell us why did you choose [your sector within health care] as a profession?

This is a specific one, and the question itself will be tailored toward you and the job at stake. The gist of it is: Employers want to know your motivations.

An anecdote is the strongest way to address this question, Lin says. Sharing a personal story connects your human side with your clinical skills.

My father was terribly sick when I was a teenager, and most of my free time was spent in a caregiving role. I admit I surprised myself by how fulfilling I found it. Even though I missed a lot of social events, it instilled in me a drive to provide that level of care to others, which I’ve done throughout my career.

11 :: Explain me about A Challenge Or Conflict You Have Faced At Work, And How You Dealt With It?

In asking this interview question, "your interviewer wants to get a sense of how you will respond to conflict. Anyone can seem nice and pleasant in a job interview, but what will happen if you're hired and Gladys in Compliance starts getting in your face?" says Skillings. Again, you'll want to use the S-T-A-R method, being sure to focus on how you handled the situation professionally and productively, and ideally closing with a happy ending, like how you came to a resolution or compromise.

12 :: Tell us how To Deal With Pressure Or Stressful Situations?

"Choose an answer that shows that you can meet a stressful situation head-on in a productive, positive manner and let nothing stop you from accomplishing your goals," says McKee. A great approach is to talk through your go-to stress-reduction tactics (making the world's greatest to-do list, stopping to take 10 deep breaths), and then share an example of a stressful situation you navigated with ease.

13 :: Tell us how Are You When You Were Working Under Pressure as Hospital Manager?

Once again, there are a few ways to answer this but they should all be positive. You may work well under pressure, you may thrive under pressure, and you may actually prefer working under pressure. If you say you crumble like aged blue cheese, this is not going to help you get your foot in the door.

14 :: Explain if Your Previous Co-workers Were Here, What Would They Say About You?

Ok, this is not the time for full disclosure. If some people from your past are going to say you're a boring A-hole, you don't need to bring that up. Stay positive, always, and maybe have a few specific quotes in mind. "They'd say I was a hard worker" or even better "John Doe has always said I was the most reliable, creative problem-solver he'd ever met."

15 :: Tell me if You Had To Give A Title To Your Life Story Up To This Point, What Would It Be And Tell Me Why?

This question gets people thinking and helps me see how someone reacts when caught off guard. The titles can be truly insightful, revealing struggles and challenges that they have faced and overcome.

16 :: Talk About Salary Now. What Are You Looking For?

Run for cover! This is one tricky game to play in an interview. Even if you know the salary range for the job, if you answer first you're already showing all your cards. You want as much as possible, the employer wants you for as little as you're willing to take. Before you apply, take a look at for a good idea of what someone with your specific experience should be paid. You may want to say, "well, that's something I've thought long and hard about and I think someone with my experience should get between X & Y." Or, you could be sly and say, "right now, I'm more interested in talking more about what the position can offer my career." That could at least buy you a little time to scope out the situation. But if you do have a specific figure in mind and you are confident that you can get it, I'd say go for it. I have on many occasions, and every time I got very close to that figure (both below and sometimes above).

17 :: Tell us what is the first change you would like to make if you hypothetically do become a general manager?

In addition to having exceptional managerial and leadership skills, a good general manager has a vision for the company.

By asking the potential candidate about the change he or she is going to make first, you get an insight into the kind of dream the person has for the company.

If you own a company you obviously want your company to become bigger and more successful in the years to come, so keeping this goal of yours in mind you should hire a general manager who is willing to dream big and is always willing to put the needs of the company before his own.

18 :: Why should we hire you as Hospital Manager?

You’ll face this tough one no matter the industry. And though your first instinct might be to say, “Because I’m awesome, duh?” there’s a much better way to answer this one in an interview setting.

“Most people don't know why they're better or even different from other candidates,” Lin says.

Candidates often feel like answering this question will come across as boastful, so they shy away from it or otherwise deflect.But this is your time to make your strongest case for yourself.

Lin recommends the “rule of three.” Provide three examples of your strengths or ways you’re unique. This makes you sound more confident and authoritative, he says.

19 :: Tell us how Many Tennis Balls Can You Fit Into Limousine? 1,000? 10,000? 100,000? Seriously?

Well, seriously, you might get asked brainteaser questions like these, especially in quantitative jobs. But remember that the interviewer doesn't necessarily want an exact number-he wants to make sure that you understand what's being asked of you, and that you can set into motion a systematic and logical way to respond. So, just take a deep breath, and start thinking through the math. (Yes, it's OK to ask for a pen and paper!)

20 :: Please explain what Exactly Is It In Your Background That Makes You Feel Like You Are Qualified For This Position?

The best type of response is an anecdote of an experience the candidate had which is germane to the requirements of the position.
