Perhaps my greatest weakness is my inability to strike the perfect balance between my professional and personal life. I often find myself willing to sacrifice what is important in life i.e. family and friends, in order to further enhance my career. This is particularly difficult because I gain momentum in my work when I'm progressing and take lots of ownership in the work that I produce. This also affects me on a psychological level as well. If I haven't completed a project at work, I find myself never fully at home. However I am working on this and make special dates to spend time with the important people in my life.
I believed that constant seemless communication was necessary to understand those expectations, even as they may evolve over time. (trick question - interviewer believed that it was more expected to fail than to succeed)
Some customers are so hard headed, what ever you do to satiesfy them they'll never understand.
It took him an amazingly long time to find the name, and then he did not know the persons title and said something to the effect of "he hasn't been there that long"
No one has really been at Rain Bird that long. They have about a 75% turnover every 3 years. In a sense, the company is really only 4 or 5 years old as the "tribal knowledge" is constantly leaving. You can see this now with the quality problems and the inability to introduce new products into the market place.
Increase the thickness. Within the deflection equation is a moment of inertia term. Within this inertia term are the cross sectional dimensions. this term is dominated by the thickness term since it is raised to the cube. Thus, the width of the beam is coupled by the cubic power to the overall deflection.
Adding ribs below the board will increase the moment of inertia and stiffen up the board. Just increasing thickness will consume more material and make the board heavier.
This question is probably one of the most difficult interview questions I've heard- it requires you to have been in a very specific situation that fits the question. This was asked during the group panel interview.

First I want to understand what are the challenging issues. I will be able to do what is required first if the issues are defined and identified. Then, I will utilize my professional IT skills and business experience to resolve the issues. That's what I will do initially.
