"I've learned to stick to my routine and ensure that my calendar is always up to date. I've found that simple acts of scheduling like this make all the difference in my productivity and my attitude by the time I get to work. I found out my coworker was terminated one day and it meant that I would need to take over her job while we interviewed other people to fill the position. It was stressful, but I stayed focused and took extra care in my scheduling so that I didn't get sick or overwhelmed."

"My manager told me, earlier in my career, that I needed to pay closer attention to detail when she noticed some mistakes in my paperwork. I am meticulous about staying organized and double checking my work, so I was a little surprised at first. I took a deep breath and let my manager know that I would have a peer review the documents before I submitted them and that I would take extra steps to make sure it didn't happen again. I now use a couple of programs and apps to ensure my work is triple checked before I submit it."
It can be hard to know how to respond when your manager tells you about ways you need to improve, primarily when you are working so hard already! Don't let this question catch you off guard! You want the interviewer at Boeing to know that you take feedback constructively and that you don't take this sort of thing personally. Discuss how you accepted the input and what you did to implement the information to improve.
