    How do you manage stress?

      Keep it simple! You don't have to explain about your vegan diet and your weekly yoga schedule. Boeing is more interested in hearing that you have managed yourself and supported others through stressful situations and that you have learned to be proactive so that the stress doesn't get to you.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "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."

      "I believe I manage stress pretty well. I try to stay focused on my tasks at hand and follow a schedule that fits my activity and drive. I know a few times where stress has come in the workplace for me. I was informed that the payroll administrator was getting a new job, and I would be taking on her work as well as my Health and Safety position. I scheduled the days that were necessities for each job and informed my now two bosses how I would manage them both. It was stressful at first, but I found my stride and got in a rhythm."

      "I manage stress by allocating time in my diary to look at the issues involved. I then adopt a problem-solving approach to the problems involved. I then produce an action plan for reducing my stress. This is how I manage stress."

      Lauren's Answer

      This is a great response. Your example demonstrates a methodical way you approve challenges. You can carry this example onto your work approach so the interviewer gets to know your personal work style.

      "When facing stressors, I use a journal as a resource. At the end of a stressful day, I will write all of the issues out in order to examine, reflect, and problem-solve. Processing ways I can reduce the stress helps me feel proactive versus reactive. I am very much a problem-solver, and I carry this outlook with my personal and professional life."
