1. Tell me about a time when you failed to meet a deadline. What happened? What did you learn?
One time I failed to have all documents ready for an assignment, and it caused a small hiccup in the in the work process. I learned that, I should always prepare and never leave work until the last minute. If this was a very big assignment then it might have been a different result all together. I will always be prepared because of that happening to me.
2. Give me an example of a time when you set a goal and were not able to achieve it.
Last year I weighed over 320lbs, I was determined to lose 70lbs within one year. At years end I lost just over 50lbs, however I was still a little bit disappointed because it wasn’t what I set out to achieve. When I set out to achieve a task, I give it every bit of my being to achieve it.
3. What is your typical way of dealing with conflict? Give me an example.
I would find out both sides of the story that caused the conflict.
Then in a calm and friendly manner, try my best to ease the tension between the parties involved. For example: I ounce had to resolve an issue between two workers that assumed one of the workers had taken a certain tool at their work station. I had it resolved by informing them that, the tools were taken to be cleaned and fixed. It resulted in making them better friends.
