Did you ever have to make a difficult decision with little or no information? How did you handle it?

They did not ask any questions, just put me in a room with an old computer and asked me to process their payroll. The SOP's were in a book on how to process the payroll. I later found out that the Payroll person had been ill and they needed someone to process the payroll so they just placed an ad to be able to get people to do the payroll for them.
