Sample Answer of Describe a Situation when You Had to Be Friendly with Someone You Dislike

When I was in Dubai, I was working as an administrator in a company. There used to be a Philippine girl who had been working there for a long time as a PA for the owner.

I never liked that girl as she was very egoistic, she never used to reply back politely, and she was too arrogant. But no one could complain against her because she was holding a very good position, and most importantly, she was perfect at her work. As we were in the same office so always, we used to face each other professionally.

We used to smile and talk, but from within, I never wanted to look at her just because of her nature. If we are working somewhere, then sometimes, we need to keep our ego out of the office then only we can work as a team.

You never know when they can embarrass you in front of others. So straightforward peoples are the best.
