2 :: Please tell me what is it about our company that appeals to you?

Don’t be afraid to talk about their reputation “On the Street” and how you are a good fit. If they are viewed as aggressive for example, talk about how that fits with you, or the interest in where this culture can take the business. Avoid sugar coating your comments as the finance industry is too sophisticated to accept simplistic answers that don’t represent a deeper understanding.

8 :: Tell us what are your weaknesses and what should you improve on?

You should never pretend you don’t have any nor come up with a list like “I work too much.” Come up with a real weakness, like prioritization, time management perhaps – something that is real but also wouldn’t jeopardized your ability to do the job and focus on what you do about it. I’m working on improving my time management for example, I use an online calendar and schedule my tasks inside that calendar and plan my week each Monday estimating time needed for each task and project.

9 :: Explain me what aspects of your previous jobs have you disliked?

This is similar to the tell us about your weaknesses question. You can’t say you have none, and you can’t say something fake like I work too hard. You need to be honest here with parameters: Prepare your answer so it comes across in a positive, productive way and not as bashing your former employer. Choose things that are about the job itself preferably, not your terrible boss, so you’re focusing on things that don’t come across as talking badly about people, which isn’t necessary or helpful. Things like the lack of structure or process is an example of something you could say. Or the lack of direction for your department.

10 :: Explain me what Are Your Weaknesses regarding work at Western Union?

This is the most dreaded question of all. Handle it by minimizing your weakness and emphasizing your strengths. Stay away from personal qualities and concentrate on professional traits: “I am always working on improving my communication skills to be a more effective presenter. I recently joined Toastmasters, which I find very helpful.”
