I said that I am decent at conflict resolution, and that I like to take action from many different angles, rather than force a solution. If something doesn't work, then I'm going to move on and try a different method.
You will likely be asked simple technical questions (e.g. solve an equation or diagnose an issue). As an example for a mechanical engineer, "how does an easy bake oven work?" The point is to answer the question as fully as possible
Explain about how the light bulb generates heat through the filament which provides both radiation and convection heating to bake the item. The oven provides insulation maintaining the heat. Write out the appropriate equation for bonus points
I was asked about if a machine failed and a frustrated production worker was on that machine when it failed, how do you deal with the production worker while you working to fix that machine as they tend to get more frustrated the longer the machine is down?
I said that I would give the production worker the knowledge of knowing what was wrong with the machine, and an approximate time as to how long it may take. I would then try to conversate and diffuse the situation with humor.
I told him that I spend time out on the floor talking with operators to tell them about the quality issues we're finding and how to eliminate them. I told him that quality would get very better as we worked together on the production floor.
