Being well prepared is the first step towards passing a car Driver’s Job Interview or any other employment opening. In so many cases, Job seekers fail to pass interviews not because they are not qualified or don’t know what to do but rather the reason being over excitement, not being well set, thinking that they will do it and many others just like it happened to Wampamba as he shared.
When Wampamba received a Job interview appointment call from where he had applied for a drivers vacancy, he never believed that it wasn’t a dream not until the final day. He was so happy to an extent that he begun preparing for the interview two weeks before the scheduled date although the end result was failing to get a Job after failing the last step which he never thought of.
While getting ready is taken to be one way, candidates should note that isn’t all that but rather, very many others have to be taken into consideration as part of the theory and practical interview parts. Knowing how to drive doesn’t answer every question but many other like some below are part of what you should expect during an interview and in fact, some may look irrelevant although worth to know.
Basing on what Wampamba was asked during the interview, below are some common questions.
Theory Part – In front Of The Interview Panel Members
1. Tell us about you.
2. Tell us about this organization or company.
3. What are some current news in the state or country.
4. Why do you think that you are best for the job?
5. What are these road signs.
6. Examples of road safety tips.
7. Who heads traffic?
8. What to do in an accident case?
9. What is involved while planning to transport your head for a meeting?
10. The vehicle abruptly stops while driving, what do you do?
11. You have been speeding and an animal crosses suddenly, what do you do?
12. Accident record.
13. Do you have any preventive tips?
And many others which you can research about. You should note that a warm greeting to the panel is a must and if you don’t know how, you can make some research with regard.
The Practical Part – In The Car With Up To 3 Or More Interviewers
Here are some of what you should do before you start the car/vehicle.
1. Checking all tires.
2. Confirm Spanner, Car Jack and Spare tire availability.
3. Request a logging card/book or car record card and check last and next service dates.
4. Check Engile oil, Brake and Clutch fluids, Radiator water (don’t open assuming the car is hot or has been running) but let them know about it, Washer water, Battery terminal intact, Steering hydrollic and any other.
5. Lock your passengers and fasten their seat belts.
6. Check and confirm all car mirror positioning.
7. Fasten your seat belt, start the car and let them to get ready for a drive.
In many cases, cars fail to move from position after successful start. And in case that happens, you should check the 4WD gear to confirm normal positioning. Interviewers use that trick which makes many fail. You should have knowledge of both 4wd’s, manual and automated cars unless you are sure.
