Just like any other job, you may encounter situations where you need to comply with rules or regulations that you disagree with. How do you handle these situations? If your boss told you to do something you disagreed with, how would you respond? Respecting work policies shows that you have the maturity to follow rules even if you don't fully understand or appreciate them.
"If I feel that a policy should be disputed due to ethics, I would approach the situation with professionalism and respect, calling on my supervisor for instance. If I simply do not like a policy, I will still enforce it out of respect for my employer."
Entry Level answer example
"I choose to follow policy, regardless of it making sense to me. If it's an ethical issue, then I would follow the protocols for reporting an ethics related situation."
Experienced answer example
"In my career as an addiction counselor, I have had to enforce policy that I did not like. It's part of the job and I have learned over the years that I may not know the entire picture. It's best to comply unless it's an ethical concern."
