While I was a sheet metal mechanic my boss asked me to come up with a plan and schedule to install 14 6' diameter exhaust fans. I started by recruiting 4 dependable guys I knew would help and not hinder the install. I decided to hang the fans using a series of chain falls to lift the fans and pull them into place at the same time. After we had the fan in place we fastened it with bolts to the side of the filter house and hung it from 1/2 " threaded rod. Complete success. Less

No difficult questions. They will be focused on customer service, so have stories ready to tell about actual situations you have been in. For example, you will be asked if you encounter a dissatisfied customer how you will handle the situation. Always answer the question with a story, don't try to make something up. Don't answer with " this is how I would handle it", answer with " this is how I handled it and tell your story.

Describe a time you and your manager, or a peer, had a major difference of a opinion on how something should be done.

2 Answers

This is a tricky question. It's best to answer this question as carefully as possible. You don't want to appear combative or problematic for the chain of command. In the past, I've given mild cases of where my direct supervisor and I had a mild disagreement. You want to give an answer that disagrees, but is respectful for the chain of command. For example: while working on the stocking team for a competitor, my manager asked for my second opinion to place a lax employee in plumbing to help another co-worker stock that area. I told him that I didn't think that was a good idea because the problem co-worker liked to talk to the other one without getting any work done. I had observed that the problem employee had better results working alone, and so I told this to my manager. However, I added that he was the supervisor, and ultimately I would be fine with his decision. My manager said that he would try it his way for a couple of weeks and if that didn't work we would try things my way. He came back to me in that time and said that I was right. The problem employee was then placed in a department that usually could be worked by one employee without any issues. Less

When I was a sheet metal installer my boss man babe me a set of drawings and took me to the kitchen area at Forman high school. I was instructed to hang 4 kitchen hoods and the steel duct work to tie in to the exhaust fans. My boss told me to hang the hoods which were made of stainless steel with two duct jacks. The jacks were only rated to lift 300 lbs each. I told him we should use chain falls because they were rated to lift the 1000 lb hood. He demanded that the lifts would work and instructed me to proceed. So I did. Me and my helper got the hood positioned in the jacks and started to lift the hood and got it about 4 foot off of the ground and the cable snapped on one of the jacks. After I made sure everyone was ok I reported the incident to my boss and asked if I could use the chain call as I has asked initially. He gave the ok and we hung the hoods without anymore incident.
