situational testing to analyse how the candidate is responding to different situations. The candidate will be
given a series of situations that will test his analytical,
managerial and communication skills. Through selection test, the company can effectively assess the overall suitability when it comes to core knowledge of the
candidate and provide them with different scenarios to
test their judgement and knowledge level. The primary
aim of using situational testing is to analyse how the
individual will react to various situations incurred at
the workplace (MAURER & FAY, 2018). The usage
of situational testing is considered to be highly effecting as it is a valid and reliable selection method for
healthcare professionals like pharmacist.

Behaviour Interview Question 1

Tell me about a time when you had to manage conflict
at work? How did you deal with it and what challenges
did you face?

This will allow the recruiter to predict performance of
the candidate as they will know how the applicant is
adjusting based on the specific situational demands. It
will provide a glimpse of the work ethic of the applicant and their different approaches to respond to challenges (Seijts & Kyei-Poku, 2020). The recruiter will
know the overall ability of the applicant to work in a
team and deliver efficient results.
In this question the applicant will be asked how did he
manage workplace conflict as he will be required to
describe his skills, approaches and experiences to explain the question. It will be highly effective for the recruiter to determine the overall job.
