QC Lab Technician Interview
The interviewer asked me if I could handle working with a variety of men where most probably didn't know how to act appropriately around women. Really? Yes, really!
My response was "yes, I can handle myself and any issues that arise...and I expect the company to be able to do the same."
Thus question was probably asked because of the cultural norms in the petrochemical industry. Most technicians/operators tend to have rather rough language and tend to poke fun at each other is a rough manner. This rough and tough behavior has been a cultural norm is this particular industry for generations. Basically the question asks if you have a thick skin.
