Cool A recent interview I experienced this question .

If you a proached another employee within our company and were told its not my job what would you say . This sentence was brought forth by a young lady interviewing me and I said it depends on the situation it was used . I futher asked if she knew where the question came from an she didn't know . So I explained that it come from very large usually unionized environments that use multiple contracts . If the company you work for and are being paid by can not be ordered to do something not in the scope of your spect contract . So this company is infact screening for unions . She mearly repeated the question .

I don't know how you feel about unions but I resent them. They were created to protect the employees but they turned out to be money sucking mechanism with lazy employees!

I don't find those 2 questions very difficult to answer.
You can always contribute to the company explaining what your strengths and skills are, therefore the benefits of hiring you.

I can assure you I wasn't Lasy infact I find my self worn out at 55 with a laundry list of health problems I neither deserve or want and headed for disability . My resume' is five pages long . Most people don't seem to understand most of us die early . Unions are in place as a counter piont to very large impersonal companies which in the past operated as if we where dispoable slaves to be driven tossed away. Unions are not perfect . Many people belong ro them that don't take the time to understand them or even know there are different types of unions Doctors , Nurses , Police , Belong to associations which are unions . There are trade unions craft unions etc . and the Chamber of commerce is an example of a bussiness union . People don't remember how bad things can be and were and if they don't continue to take responsibility for them selves . It will happen again . Good Luck to you Strength has always been in knowledge and numbers .
