So, I went for 2 interviews this morning and one seemed to have gone very well, and then the other, I kind of got all nervous and didn't understand the question and was a bit spinning my wheels! it's the second time it happens to me with that question! It's extremely weird, I don't know why I answered so poorly... Anyway, here how it went:
The girl was asking what I would do if someone asked me to do an unethical thing at work! And I answered, good at first, I said I would ask for details and then if it;s unethical would not do it, but then I was struggling!!!! cus I thought they ment demolishing walls for previous rooms that were not supposed to be there due to the fact that builders do that a lot here!
Now I am afraid that I blew it!!!! I really really wanted to work for them!
I have never done anything unethical at work, let alone in my life for crying out loud! Why the heck did I answer in such a weird way?
And, it happened a long time ago as well, in an interview for a sales position, I was asked if I would report a person I "think" I saw stealing! And, again, I stumbled! F and F. What the heck is wrong with me??? I said, I would check with the person, and if I judge that they were in fact stealing, report it to the super.
I know why I stumbled: it's because I am not a snitch. I don't freakin report people just like that because I 'think' they are doing something wrong! I check first!
But now I am really, really worried! I feel so bad! I just hope the girl can see through my miscommunication and disregard this stupid answer. I just doubt she will though because, the last time, I am pretty sure I didn't get hired because I didn't give a straight up answer!!!!
I could have responded way better, and I know I will in the future! I just can't believe I did that!
The next time I will say:
I would never jeopardize my position with a company to do something unethical as I have confidence a good company would not ask such a thing! If a person inside the company would ask me such a thing, I would report them to the super!
Thing is, I would in fact never jeopardize my position for such a stupid thing as even taking something that doesn't belong to me! Never done it, and never will! And this answer right here, came to me in less then a second! So why couldn't I respond well?
Why was that so difficult? Why oh why? I feel like such a dweeb!
