You will be asked...
What major problem have you encountered and how did you deal with it?
- Questions about your past ways of acting or behaving
- Questions that require critical thinking or example problems to solve
- Questions which require you to put a lot of preparation and practice into before the interview or you are sure to give a less than flattering answer.
- These questions are either easy to give the wrong answer or the most obvious answer is the wrong answer.
- I once took over a management position of a team with rock bottom morale. I had to figure out what had caused such low morale and how I could turn it around. Of course this all had to be done in the shortest time possible. With the right solution and the backing of my supervisor, people outside of the team were commenting on the turn around in under two weeks. It was a complete transformation for the team and the department. - by Staff
- We once had a team member that had a bad skiing accident. He was completely unreachable for over a month. I got the team to come together to discuss the work that we had to get covered in his absence. I allowed the team to openly take part in distributing and claiming responsibility for the extra work. The team pulled together and deliver the product on time and on budget even though we were one man short. I got the department to throw them a celebration party and the look on their faces were priceless. - by Staff
