Seasonal interview questions shared by candidates
She actually asked me this particular question twice but phrased it differently the second time. First time: Let's say that one of your assignments with a client lasted much longer than you thought it would and you only have like two hours left and you still have to go meet with three more clients. You still have to finish the meeting with the current client, what do you do? Second time: Let me rephrase that earlier question, let's say that you underestimated the time it would take to do an assignment and there is two hours left and that you still have three more assignments that need to be completed on that day. You see me enter the room to check to see how everyone is doing. What do you do?
My answer to the second question was apparently the answer she was looking for. I said that I'm not afraid to ask for help when I need to, since I would have no way of knowing how long those three assignments would take I would explain to her that I am running behind and that I need help in finishing those assignments. I also tied it with a previous experience where I met with a similar situation and did the same thing.
I am in a similar situation with Towers Watson. I interviewed 3 weeks ago for a different position and was told i would have an answer by the end of the month. Have you reached out to HR asking for a status?
I emailed the supervisor who interviewed me since she gave me her card and is the one who is actually in charge of the hiring. I wouldn't go through HR since they are not usually the ones who decided who gets accepted
