<ul><ul><li>Today we are going to focus on some work realated interview questions and possible answers you can use. </li></ul></ul>http://skype-englishschool.com http://eikaiwa-skype.com
What do you do when you’re having difficulty solving a problem? What do you do when you have a problem with a direct? What do you do when you have a problem with your boss? What do you do when you have a problem with your job? What do you do when you have a problem with a co worker? How do you handle conflict? http://skype-englishschool.com http://eikaiwa-skype.com
There are many different ways to approach this answer. So there are many right answers. Just remember to explain yourself step by step. "I usually take a short break. I found that this helps me think clearer and I often end up solving the problem." "I break down the problem piece by piece and try and solve difficult problems step by step. This approach helps me not to get overwhelmed by difficult problems." "I always do my best solving difficult problems. If I have trouble, I'll use resources around me such as looking through the Internet, asking co workers, asking my manager, or looking through some books." http://skype-englishschool.com http://eikaiwa-skype.com
This is more of a question for management. There are multiple ways you can answer this, but you should show that you are responsible and that you know how to resolve these types of problems. "I believe in open communication. I always analyze the problem and then tell my direct clearly. I always provide steps that we both can take to deal with the problem. This approach helps me because it shows my respect." "In this situation, I believe communication is very important. I'll usually have a meeting with my direct on the problems I have. It's easier to work on a problem together when everyone involved is aware, so I always communicate the problems that I see." "I believe feedback is important to solve problems with a direct. I meet with my directs regularly and always provide suggestions on how to improve. I also use this time to work out problems we might have. It's important to let my directs know where I stand so they don't have to make assumptions." http://skype-englishschool.com http://eikaiwa-skype.com
It is easier to tell a manager your problems because they are in a position where they should accept listening to your problems. So in this case, I would answer it by showing some honesty trait. "I'm very open with my manager. I feel it's important that my manager knows about how I feel. I always start a conversation and try and solve our differences through professional conversation." "When I have a problem with my boss, I don't like to keep it bottled up. I want to resolve problems so I can work efficiently without distractions. So I always talk to my manager about the problems that I have openly." "I deal with different types of people very well, but if I have a problem that affects my work, I will openly tell my manager and the reason why it's bothering me." http://skype-englishschool.com http://eikaiwa-skype.com
Nobody likes to be working when there is a problem with the job. You can hate it, or you could be too busy and too tired. Whatever the reason, it is best to show that you will look for the problem and take measures to solve it. "In this situation, I ask my self why I'm having the problem. After identifying it, I work on solving the problems so I can be more efficient in my work." "It depends on the specific problem, but in most cases, I'll face the problem that I have with my job and find a solution. If I avoid the problem, it will always be there and my work quality will decrease. So I found that solving the problems immediately helps me in the long term." "If I have a problem that I can solve, I'll do everything I can to correct it. If the problem is out of my control, I feel it's important to let my manager know what my problems are." "Whether I'm happy or unhappy, I'll always do my best work. If the problem I have with my job is affecting the quality of my work, I'll identify the problem and then take steps to find solutions." http://skype-englishschool.com http://eikaiwa-skype.com
You can mention that you believe having to deal with a problem with a co-worker is difficult because competitiveness comes into factor. Along with this statement, follow up with how you would try to look beyond that to make your relationship better. "If I have a problem with a co-worker, I believe it's so important to talk to them. Even if I'm the one with the problem, I want to know so I can be a better team mate." "If I have a problem, I try to approach my co-worker and let them know as professionally as possible. If I'm the one with the problem, I'll politely ask what I can do to improve the relationship. I found that proper communication solves many problems." "I've always been told that I'm a great person to work with, but if I were in a situation where I was having a problem, I believe I would work on our relationship by being more understanding." http://skype-englishschool.com http://eikaiwa-skype.com
This is a general question. It doesn't ask if you are the one with the conflict, if it is a conflict with another person, if it is a conflict of schedule, or if it is a conflict with changes at work. If you want, you can ask a question to clarify. But if you want to answer in a general way, try to think of an answer that will work for all types of conflict. "I treat most conflicts the same. I analyze the conflict and create a list of steps I can take to resolve it. By thinking about these steps and taking action, I found that most conflicts are easy to handle." "I handle conflicts by analyzing them. I'm a very analytical person and I feel all problems have a solution. I usually think about the conflict and find ways to deal with it." "Whenever I'm confronted with a conflict, I always follow a simple process. I think about what the current conflict is, think of several ways I can deal with this conflict, and then take the best action after my analysis." http://skype-englishschool.com http://eikaiwa-skype.com
