    Rate your problem solving skills from 1-10. How do you justify your rating?

      How to Answer

      The interviewer wants to know how you would rate your problem-solving skills. Of course, you want to give yourself a strong rating; however, it's essential that you remain realistic. Everyone has room to learn and improve! Be sure to justify your score as well.

      Darby's Answer

      "I rate my problem-solving skills as an 8/10. I will, on occasion, have times when I am not as efficient as I would like to be but all in all, I do feel that my problem-solving skills are above average. My supervisor and co-workers will attest to my fast reflexes when a problem arises, and they would also say that I remain calm under pressure."

      Ryan's Answer

      "I would say I get a solid 8.3 on a scale of 10. Seems weird to give myself something like a .3, but I think of it as an 83%, which is a B- teetering on a solid B. It's a solid grade, with definite room for improvement, since I'm certainly not perfect. The reason for the B-/B grade would be that I'm quick to take action and figure out the solution as I go, but sometimes I could benefit from taking a moment to pause and reflect or gather other contributors before taking action. That said, I believe I generally get the best outcome possible when faced with a challenge."

      "I would rate my problem-solving skills as an 8 out of 10. Occasionally there have been times when I was not as efficient as I'd like to be, but overall I do feel that my problem-solving skills are above average. My supervisor and coworkers would agree that I remain calm under pressure and have fast reflexes when problems arise."

      It's great that you drew your answer back to your supervisor and coworker references. I like that you ended on a high note.
