He asked me "how do you improve the production issues that are causing quality issues"

The hardest question that caught me off guard, was when they asked if I was good with conflict resolution and how I deal with conflict.

1 Answer

A lot of process questions, such as how to accomplish specific things, end to end. They did a total review of my history, especially with other companies. They seem to want well-rounded people who have technical skills and can deal with customers.
