Answering Electrical Technician Questions

Ace 1000s of Interview Q&As

What was the most difficult repair job you have done?

The interviewer would like to know more about the complex repair jobs you have worked with before. Tell the hiring manager the details of a complicated repair job you have worked on in the past. If you are new to your career as an electrical technician, perhaps you had a challenging cast study while completing your degree.


Answer Example

"The most difficult repair job I recall doing was on an ancient A/C machine. The equipment was not acting how it should despite everything appearing to be properly wired. I had to call in my supervisor to assist. We ended up getting it figured out but it was a very challenging experience."

Entry Level

"I am new to my career as an electrical technician so, at this point, I have not been the lead tech on any challenging repair jobs. While completing my internship, I worked under a senior technician and assisted him on a difficult DC installation. I was able to learn a lot from him, which I am grateful for."


"That is a tough question since I have faced many difficult jobs in my past. At the start of my career, I did the grind! I worked digging service ditches. In my opinion, very few jobs are harder than that. I knew when I thrived in that job that I could do anything."
