      Interview Questions
      With Joshua Pearson
    • When groups work together, conflict often erupts. 
      Tell me about a time that conflict occurred In one of your work groups and what you did about it.
      My customer service position at the telephone company involved dealing occasionally with irate customers. When that happened, I'd try to talk in a calm, even voice, in order to get the person to respond in a businesslike manner and focus on trying to resolve the situation. Most times I was able to rectify the problem and pacify the customer, but I remember one incident in particular in which the caller became verbally abusive. I tried to remain calm and professional and not to let my personal feelings enter into the situation. I didn't respond to the abuse, I just made a not of it and continued to help he customer as best I could. When the abuse persisted, however, I politely asked him to call back and ask for my manager, because at that point I knew I shouldn't resolve the problem."

      Tell me about a time you pitched in to help someone finish a project even though it “wasn’t your job.”  What was the result?
      This happens often, becasue i am the highest rank, if something doesn’t get done I need to do it myself. I was told that was poor leadership, but the job needs to be done.
      Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.- RyunosukeSatoro

      Give an example of a successful project you were part of. What was your role? Why was the project successful?
      I was to instuct my peers on appropriate bording procedures. The assignment was successfull becasue we knew what we needed to do. Some had to stay longer to study the material. But the incentive is pursueing a boat going ovewr 70mph. That gets any bodys motivation up.
