If an interviewer asks, the answer will be "I'm a workaholic".

The real answer would be "Fan IQ".

Controlling myself so I don't twist another idiot customers head off! I only got written up for the last one, mainly because everyone else wanted to do it to him also.

Many interviewers disregard the "workaholic" or "perfectionist" answer and ask for another one.
Procrastination (Putting things off)  
#5 | 1287 days ago

to my mind that may be that of Bill Clinton
#6 | 1287 days ago

I work from home. TV, music, Wilson the Volley, remote controlled hopter-copter, Jesus & Godzilla action figures all play havoc with my attention span. The internet doesn't help either.
Focusing  
#7 | 1287 days ago

I often take over someone elses duty because I just can't stand by and watch them f@ck it up.

Sometimes, well, the most of times I'm very patient and tolerant with my students because my only wish is to help them to learn more, sometimes I think I'm too soft with them and try to look more energic and hard, but definitely, that's not my thing I prefer to ask them to do things in a nice way, sometimes people think that shows weakness but works for me, at least the most of times.

OVERTIME.......while i do some to suit me...........they would LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE MORE, but.........I HAVE A LIFE !!!!!!!!!!!!!
#16 | 1287 days ago

at church: working is actually a weakness of mine.

at the bar: drinking and taking the "we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone" sign too liberally when there are *ssh*les in the joint.

I do as little work as possible, and besides that is a dirty four-letter word to a retired person.

#28 | 1287 days ago

 I tend to take on more than I can handle - and I have a hard time delegating. It's a combination of being a people pleaser and having control issues.

I have a pretty strong work ethic, always have, so, I don't tend to steal time, slack off or become unmotivated and I get along well with everyone.

With my current line of work, probably just understanding all of the technology. At times, my patience could be challenged, but, that's probably almost everyone on here too.

My biggest weakness at work is my poor excuse for a boss. This guy has less brains than an amoeba! He must wear kneepads quite abit at his bosses meetings.

 I have very little patience with co workers that dont have a work ethic.

#34 | 1280 days ago

I'm in the same boat as Jess.   My biggest weakness, especially at this new job where I am general manager of about 15 workers, is to be a people pleaser/good guy.  Unfortunately, sometimes there is just no way around it and you have to be the bad guy and lay down the law

How did I miss this poll?  Anyway, I tend to procrastinate...why do today what you can put off until tomorrow? .  Actually, it has to do with charting.  I have a new medical records system which is a little tedious in the beginning.  Once patients have their info entered, or come back for a second visit under the new system, it will go a LOT faster, and I'll be caught up on charts again.

I always try to take on too much at once.  I know it's bad, but I can't help it.

 That cartoon is hilarious...a new meaning to part-time work  I was on the other side for the first time 2 years ago, when I had to interview and hire another sports writer. I already knew what his weakness was, though, because he had covered a number of games for his college newspaper but never actually created the sports pages, which is something he would have to do 3 times each week.
