typical questions, what are your strengths/weaknesses?


Interview Answer

1 Answer


Putting up with all of the politics, bs, weak divisional presidents who are afraid to make needed change because it might make them look bad. Don't 'rock the boat', even if it needs rocking. Keep it smooth, take all the credit behind closed doors, and wait for promotion.
Actual quote: "IT'S NOT OUR JOB TO TELL THE BOARD WHATS NOT WORKING....WE WORK WITH WHAT WE HAVE (and don't want to risk alienating someone higher by telling them the truth) OUR OWNERS WILL TELL US IF THEY WANT TO MAKE A CHANGE/GET RID OF AN UNDERPERFORMING BUSINESS," Karen Katz, Spring 2002. (Particular business sold 3 years later). There's an informal collection of these (bizarre) statements --- we called them "KATZi'isms."
