Sample Answer

Interview Question: Tell me about a time you disagreed with someone

In my last job i  was working on a certain  project and my boss directed me to take a different approach. In my opinion this approach was expensive to implement and would create a lot of complications which would likely lead to a great loss of time and money. So, I went and raised  my concerns to her and in turn  offered an alternative approach, finally she agreed with me and in the end we achieved our goals.
