Here are sample answers for the interview question "What do you know about this company?"

Sample Answers

  • I know that this company is the number one widget wholesaler in the US, with a growing overseas presence in Europe and Asia. Additionally, your sales in China have grown by 25% in the last 3 years, and your widget sales are beginning to outpace the Chinese competition. Domestically, your sales continue to grow steadily, even through the economic downturn, and subsequent plateau that your competition has faced.
     
  • This company was rated one of Forbes "America's Best Small Companies" in 2013, and has shown consistent growth in the market. Your sales have surpassed expectations, and your innovative products and sales techniques have made you one of the most desirable companies to work for in the US.
     
  • In my research about this company I discovered that you had started out over 100 years ago as a small brick and mortar retailer in Center City. As a family owned business, you had the savvy to grow in unique ways, and when the opportunity arose to go public in 1993, the decision was clear. Since then, the management has continued to make aggressive decisions, keeping your business in the forefront of its competition.
