What do you not like to do as an occupational therapist assistant?
It is absolutely okay to not love every single detail of your job. When answering this question it is best to be specific. You will want to avoid brushing a broad stroke and saying something like 'I dislike documenting' - since that is a huge part of your role as an OTA.
Answer examples
"There are so many aspects of the job that I love so much, and they outweigh any negative. If I could pinpoint one thing, I would say that I disliked administering electrotherapy in the previous clinic I worked at. The equipment was a bit intimidating to me as it was older but I worked through it with the assistance of my Occupational Therapist."
