What major challenges and problems did you face at your last position?
Union issues lock of support from your supervised.
My boss was mostly out of work due to ill health, combining his duties with mine was a challenge which was accepted in good faith and as a result, learned in the process the duties of a hotel manager.
Being self employed raised all sorts of challenges whether it's staff, clients ruining linens and having them rented out the following week, a staff member calling in sick, but you get on the internet and buy some new linens or you contact your client and let them know what happened and see if they want to pick another linen or try and subcontract it out to another decorating company. Because I didn't have many staff to fall back on, I would call upon family in tight timeline situations.
