"For the most part, my company abides by all labor regulations. In the case of overtime, they did not abide by the regulations and I had to speak up for my team. The company was not happy about it because it cost them a lot of money but, in the end, they realized that they were in error."
"Yes, I typically consider the big picture of all situations before I account for myself. If something makes sense for the organization and the people it serves, I will find a way to translate that to the team, even if it goes against the grain. We can then discuss as a group and come to the right conclusion together."
"I spoke up to our management team regarding mandatory overtime by the back-of-house staff. I did not believe that the expectations were balanced so I chose to speak up. I remained respectful, of course, and supported my thoughts with facts and truths. They heard me out and some significant changes were made afterwards."
Every manager wants a team player who will not resist company policy or argue about every detail of the work load. However; a time may come when you need to speak up about something and it may not look the best on you. Talk to the interviewer about a time that this may have happened to you on the job.
