When responding to the interview question "How do you handle discrepancies or issues with media vendors and billing?" you can provide the following framework for your answer:

  1. First, clarify the situation and gather all necessary information: When an issue arises, it's important to understand the full scope of the problem. Ask questions to get all of the details necessary to make an informed decision.
  2. Communicate with the vendor: Reach out to the media vendor to discuss the issue, ask for clarification, and try to find a resolution together. It's important to maintain a professional and respectful demeanor during the conversation.
  3. Document the issue: Keep detailed records of the problem, including any emails or other correspondence, in case it needs to be referenced later on.
  4. Escalate the issue, if necessary: If the vendor is unresponsive or unwilling to work towards a resolution, it may be necessary to escalate the issue to a supervisor or manager.
  5. Evaluate the situation: After the issue has been resolved, take time to evaluate what went wrong and what could be done differently in the future to avoid similar issues.


In summary, your answer should demonstrate your ability to remain calm under pressure, communicate effectively with vendors, and document issues in detail to ensure they are resolved efficiently.

Whenever discrepancies or issues arise with media vendors and billing, my first step is to carefully review and compare our records with theirs. This includes double-checking any invoices, contracts, and documentation to ensure that everything is accurate and up-to-date. I then reach out to the vendor directly to discuss the issue and work towards a solution. I always approach these conversations with a calm and professional demeanor, keeping lines of communication open and maintaining a positive working relationship. If necessary, I will escalate the issue to a higher authority or seek legal assistance to resolve the matter. Above all, my goal is to reach a fair and mutually-acceptable resolution while maintaining a positive relationship with the vendor.
