Professional Answers Preview
Boeing Co. is a competitive company that only hires those who take the job seriously. One way you can show you're serious about working there is through doing your research before the interview. Boeing is America's biggest manufacturing exporter. Take some time to learn more about their mission, values and their culture. You can find out what employees are saying about them through searching glassdoor.com and searching for articles online. You can even talk about how they were recognized for donating $6 million dollars in grants to support over 50 organizations that serve communities in Washington. These statistics matter to Boeing! Explain how they matter to you too!

Question 3 of 25
How do you manage stress?
Professional Answers Preview
"I've learned to stick to my daily routine of running in the morning and having breakfast before work. I've found that simple acts of self-care 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 fired 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 of myself so that I didn't get sick or overwhelmed."

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.

Question 3 of 25
How do you manage stress?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
When there is very limited resource and when there is insufficient information regarding the assigned job.
2.
Not being given enough information or time to complete a job.
3.
I try not to get stressed out. Timelines will do it but when I do have a time crunch. I always try to take a step back, relax, take a look at the big picture before I come up with a plan of action.
4.
Meeting schedules because of understaffed crews or lack of parts to complete the project.
5.
Lack of resources and insufficient information in regards to the job.
6.
When the timelines are not known and the information about the job is limited.
7.
The biggest stress causers for me on the job would be when there is a bulk issue for one of the trucks. Most of the time the dispatchers do not know the actual size of the box being shipped. So sometimes big boxes come down the belt which do not fit in the truck due to limited space. The issue is trying to find another truck and another driver to either deliver those packages to the customers or take the packages to the drivers once some of the other packages have been delivered freeing up space.
8.
I am a pretty cool cat under fire. I adapt, overcome and persevere.
9.

10.
When there is a lack of explanation for a certain task and when there is a lack of proper tooling for a given situation.
11.
Lack of clarity can cause stress for me. I combat this by driving clarity where possible and adjusting my approach when it is not clear. Do what I can, where I can while continuing to drive clarity from the team/lead.
12.
Training personnel doing the right thing at the right time and seeing them caring on the wrong, when they been told the proper way to do right thing especially when they have the job description as a guidance.
13.
When multiple things are dropped on me simultaniously and all have to be accomplished at the same time.
14.
Afraid of making a mistake. I take my job seriously, and feel pride in what I do, so to make a mistake would be potentially deadly.
15.
I don’t often get stressed at work. I strongly value respect and communication in the workplace. When those break down because of laziness or procrastination, it can create stress. I try to prevent that by encouraging others to communicate.

Being in college, a major area for conflict is the rooming situations with different people. You never know what their personalities are going to be like, if they are early risers or late sleepers, etc. This has happened to be on numerous occasions. My current roommate believes that since we share a room we share food as well. At first I was confused because my food kept on disappearing. It was not until I confronted my roommate that I found out he had been eating it. We both had to adapt in our thinking of what it meant to be a roommate and compromise that as long as we replace the food we eat everything will be okay.

For a fluids dynamics class, the teacher was particularly rough. On top of that, the grader had a particular disdain for my handwriting. As a result, I lost points on assignments several times just because the grader had trouble reading my handwriting. But, I understood the problem and it was one I could fix without too much extra effort, so I proceeded to type my homeworks to eliminate question regarding my solutions.
