    tell us about a tough decision you took at work-obviously this needs to be work related but its difficult to come up with an answer



    whats the hardest think you have done in your life- was thinking of saying I trained for 6mths and then ran a marathon

    Think about a time that you maybe had to decide to do something despite a member of staff/ team being unhappy with it. Or when you had to decide to deal with a customer in a specific manner that they may have not been happy with

    Have never heard of such a question come up in an interview. The marathon is a good answer though, as it shows motivation, forward planning and determination.

    It's hard to help properly as we don't know what line of work it is for.

    Swallowed my pride and individuality and 'prepared' for a behavioral interview.
    I'd give the job to the first person with this answer.
