32 Salon Receptionist Questions and Answers:

1 :: Explain what quality do you have that enables you to do your work in an efficient manner?

I can multitask quite easily. This is a requirement in my work as I often have to juggle telephone calls, walk-in customers and scheduled appointments.

2 :: What kind of office administration hardware have you used, and what is the level of expertise that you have using these machines?

I have experience with all the machines that are in use in a normal office. The machines that I have used extensively are the EPABX, copier, scanner and fax. I used a PC extensively in my previous job. Since the company had its offices on a global level, I was also familiar with VOIP. In addition, I am quite qualified to handle the client side servicing such as installing any necessary software, device drivers, emailing, voice mail or integrating commands into the PC, mobile or other machines related to office administration.

3 :: Describe your most significant strengths?

The strength I'm mustering up to answer these questions.

4 :: Tell me what do you feel is the most important skill that is required of a receptionist?

As far as my experience tells me, it is to be comfortable speaking to, as well as meeting and interacting with people from diverse backgrounds, each with their unique needs.
Since a receptionist is actually the first image of the company that a person is presented with, a receptionist must always be cheerful, with a pleasant disposition.

5 :: What would your former employer say about you positive and negative?

I have no idea. You'd have to ask him. I hope good things.

6 :: What motivates you as Salon Receptionist?

Working for people who don't ask me stupid questions and let me do my job without unnecessary interference.

7 :: Do you know typing speed is quite important here. How quickly do you type when using word processing software? And what are the error levels?

I have a typing speed of around sixty words per minute. I can achieve this speed with about ten percent error levels. I used to prepare documents related to the office work at this speed almost daily as this was one of my key responsibility areas.

8 :: Tell me on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the highest, where would you rate a salon receptionist's significance? Why did you give this rating?

I would give it a 9. This is because salon receptionists are the first people customers meet when they enter and it is up to them to provide a positive image of the place they are representing.

9 :: Tell me have you ever worked in a stressful organization? How did you relax yourself, and gear up for more?

I have worked in only two companies in six years, and in general the atmosphere was rarely too stressful. Occasionally, it did get very chaotic, but truthfully, I enjoyed it and was very comfortable working in such a livewire situation.
When I felt overwhelmed with work, a situation that naturally occurred periodically I would plan relaxation into my weekends. I find that exercise, walks and bike rides, as well as some good reading all served to re-charge me and allow me to handle the upcoming work days successfully.

10 :: Explain your most significant weaknesses?

Answering these questions when I know I shouldn't. Oh, and eating sugary sweets late at night before bed.
