How do you handle stress and pressure of a fast paced environment?
If I feel that I have been asked to do too much, I will speak up and ask for something to be delegated to another co worker.
I tackle each task one at a time. I make sure that I am being efficient. If I feel overwhelmed or feel that I am unable to complete a task I would ask for assistance.
