There are so many times. My motto was if it’s not god enough for me it’s not good enough for them. I wanted the individuals that served to afford the ammenity’s in life that you or I could afford meaning if they wanted to go out to a night club and dance why could’t they I made it happen. If they were going to a prom they wore tuxedo’s not just anything thrown together We pulled resources together and made it happen. No matter the sweat and work it took if the 8 individuals wanted to see the lights on BeravSquare despite (which I did not know at the time ) thousands of people that were going to be there. We went suffered through the traffic to park and get 8 individuals (with wheel chairs, and a dog) out to experience 10 minutes of Fire works but you know it was worth to be able to feel the cold air and be amongst hundreds of people they were happy and I was happy.

Mostly behavioral/scenario questions. One was along the lines of "Tell me about a time you were in a difficult situation." Another had to deal with patient care and how I went above and beyond for someone.
