Basic 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 answer example
"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."
Experienced answer example
"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."
