Coming from retail management and knowing how LP is looking at this:
It starts with a quarter and usually gets bigger from there. (Greed )
I believe the only right answer is YES its stealing
If you are willing to may exception because of the amount it shows that you will bend rules and fail the question.
I have worked before companies that fired people for consuming discarded merchandise(written out of inventory like an open package of such-and-such) because it was a policy. Most comanies want to know their policies will be followed to the letter because that helps product the company.
Although some companies may bend their rules where they see fit that is not what the interview is about . Less
No. I'd talk them out of it. Pay them a quarter from my own pocket if I had to. Who's integrity is worth 25¢? Less
It's a horrible question that most interviewers ask. I tend to answer that "I like to break long range plans into short term goals....." and then go on to explain my short term goals. It tends to get a positive reaction from people. Less
