45 Delivery Agent Questions and Answers:

2 :: Tell us how is your driving record?

Be honest and tell the truth as they will more than likely do a background check.

4 :: Tell me as a service delivery manager, what is your management style?

In my experience delegating responsibility and authority is crucial. A team needs to be able to develop and grow as individuals and a whole, not be held back by low expectations or ego.

5 :: Why do you want to work here as Delivery Agent?

The interviewer is trying to gauge your enthusiasm for the role as well as your level of knowledge about the company. Give specific examples of things that attracted you to the company and elaborate on your strengths, achievements and skills and how they match the position description, making you the right fit.

6 :: Tell me what do you like to do in your spare time?

This question boils down to your interviewer trying to gauge how well you’ll fit in at the company and within his or her team. While your ideal post-work hobby might be zoning out on the couch with Netflix, it’s best to focus on hobbies that align with personal or professional growth. That doesn’t mean saying you’re only into reading business news, but ideally, you can talk about an activity that shows your collaborative or inquisitive side, like playing a team sport or learning a new language.

8 :: Tell us why should we hire you as their delivery driver?

To answer this question correctly you must have a second read of the job description and list out the skills required to do the job!

Then reassure the hiring manager that you have those skills required for the position.

Below is a job description for a pizza delivery driver:
☛ Can communicate verbally with customers and co-workers to process orders both over the phone and in person. (skill required: communication)
☛ Can add, subtract, multiply, and divide accurately and quickly. (skill required: math skills)
☛ Can enter orders using a computer keyboard or touchscreen. (skill required: quick learner)
☛ Take inventory and complete associated paperwork. (skill required: looking for attention to detail)

Possible answers to this question are:
☛ I have great communication skills which will allow me to work well with customers and co-workers.
☛ I am good at math and will not have any issue making any change.
☛ I am a quick learner and will not have any issue learning the computer system to take orders.
☛ I pay great attention to detail and will always make sure the customer gets their order correctly the first time.

9 :: Tell me is your insurance up to date?

Obviously, you will need insurance. It is worthwhile to check but if you can’t remember, tell the interviewer that your insurance is automatically renewed (if that’s the case)

10 :: Explain me why did you leave your previous role as Delivery Agent?

With this question, the interviewer is attempting to gauge your suitability for the role based on your past behaviour and attitude towards your previous role – what motivates you, what you may or may not enjoy in a future role, and where you might be challenged.

Candidates need to tread carefully here. While it is important to be as honest as possible, you don’t want to come across as negative or as someone who leaves when things get challenging. It is always better to cite positive reasons for leaving a job, such as seeking career progression or a desire to challenge yourself, than negative reasons such as disliking your work or colleagues. Never bad-mouth a previous employer as it will only reflect badly on you.

The skill in answering this question lies in how you frame it, so keep it positive. For example, if you left your previous role because you had a micro-managing boss, you could express it this way: “My previous manager was very detail-oriented and directive, and while this enabled me to learn a great deal, I felt I was ready to take on a role where I could expand and exercise more autonomy. I am at my best when I receive some guidance but am given the scope to manage my projects and really contribute.”
