Explain your thought process in detail.

How did you handle a time when you had to manage a project?

As I look back I feel like they only asked variations of this question. My boredom at answering this question surely came through, because a couple of my interviewers muffled yawns when I attempted to answer this question again.

I actually had a few dreams after the interview about the interview.
