Who was your worst boss?

How to Use

Interviewer: Who was your worst boss?

Mark: Well, I have had a pretty good relationship with all of my bosses. I can't really say that any of them were terrible. But if I had to choose one, I would say my first boss was my worst boss.

Interviewer: Can you tell me why?

Mark: It was because he was so indecisive. When there was a disagreement between the staff about what to do, we needed him to make a decision. However, he didn't want to make anyone angry, so he often avoided making these decisions.

Interviewer: I see. How did that affect the performance of the department?

Mark: It affected our performance greatly. We often fell behind schedule because he couldn't make a decision and many times we did not have clear directions from him, so the quality of the projects fell.

Interviewer: That must have been frustrating.

Mark: It definitely was a little frustrating.
