Group B: Behavior-Based Questions
1.Tell me about a difficult situation you dealt with when supervising others. What did you do, and what were the results?
I was a back office supervisor as a doctor’s office where I was over 4 other employees. I had two of them who didn’t want to do their daily job duties and when they did their duties they half fast them. So I put a reward system into play to where monthly if their jobs were done correctly I would take them out for a nice dinner. In the long run they all started doing their jobs and our work and personal relationships got a lot better. 2.Describe the last time that you did something that went beyond what was expected in work or school.
I was chosen as a team leader for a school project, the team was made up of 5 team members. As a team we were to write a 50 page paper, a PowerPoint along with a presentation for this capstone course. As a team not everyone cooperates like you want them to. So I had to pick up a lot of the work that others were not doing. At the end of the class our presentation was to be 10-12 minutes in length (about 2 minutes each). We didn’t have everyone cooperate in the presentation so in order to get the team members a good grade I had to complete 5 minutes of the team presentation. We ended up with a good grade and everyone was happy.
