How are you known at work?
Apparently, I’m the quiet (yet friendly) systematic one. I’m also quite analytical in general so I’m typically the one who notices if something is out of place.
If you could choose to live a second life as an animal, what animal would you be and why?
I’d be some type of bird to have the freedom to go anywhere and have a view of everything from above. In reality, though, I relate more to quiet dogs (but when I’m angry, stay away!)
Can you describe what your ideal co-worker would be like?
I appreciate it when colleagues take initiative and make an effort to try to solve a problem before asking for help. This shows they’re not just taking the easy way out and dumping everything on me. Working with someone who’s lazy and doesn’t collaborate with the rest of the team would be a nightmare. My ideal co-worker would also be friendly and easy-going – I have no problem with people speaking to me early in the morning!
What is the funniest thing that happened to you at work?
Actually, I’m still a little bitter about my rocky start here; I received a parking fine on the day of my interview! I guess it’s funny now – maybe not so much at the time…
Aliens invade the office on an otherwise normal Monday afternoon. What’s the first thing you do?
I’d grab my bag and run. I don’t have many personal items here so it wouldn’t matter.
