Infor Interview Questions and Answers

You’ve found the job, applied, and the hiring manager has agreed you fit the criteria. They’ve arranged an interview. All’s going well – but are you prepared for what they’ll be asking? Here are some of the most common Infor interview questions and answers.

How Do You Answer Interview Questions?

Remember, while your primary goal has to be to demonstrate your expertise, you also need to do two other things in your interview.

You should demonstrate consistency from your CV – you can bring in extra examples and you’ll be going into more detail, but you want to make sure your interviewer recognises the person they imagined when they read it. An easy way of doing that is to make sure you tie most of the examples you give back to what you first sent them.

You should also work to show that you’ll fit in with the company. By this stage you’ll have done some research on the business and you’ll have some idea whether or not the way you like to work matches the company culture. This is especially key for a permanent role; during a short contract it might not matter, but in the long run you’ll need to be comfortable there.

There are a great many different questions being asked in interviews for Infor roles. The most common types are:

How Have You Solved Problems as Part of a Team?

Almost any Infor role places you as part of a wider team, but your expertise may be unique in the team. Your example should cover a time when either your expertise allowed you to identify an issue ahead of the team and guide them to a solution, or where your expertise was key to finding a solution to an issue the team had been struggling with for some time.

Express this Information Without Jargon

This is more of a challenge than a question. You might be given a glimpse of an actual Infor dashboard and asked to break down what it shows in a way anyone can understand. Or you might be given a summary heavily loaded with Infor-specific jargon, and asked to make that clearer to everyone and even offer an interpretation of what it could mean.

Describe a Project You’ve Worked on that Benefitted the Company

The challenge here is not the project; it’s the second part of the sentence. The interviewer is testing here to see if you know how your activity can benefit the company. At some point in your answer you must show that your project contributed to the financial bottom line or to some equally important factor – ideally with numbers, either financial figures or a percentage improvement.

A question like the last one is particularly important if the role includes a degree of independence. They will want to be sure that the work you’re doing will benefit the company, directly or indirectly, in a measurable way.

Good luck with your interview! If it doesn’t work out for you, don’t give up – get in touch and we’ll help you find the perfect role for you.
