A detailed answer and analysis of a tough interview question from Matt & Nan DeLuca, authors of the best selling "Best Answers to the 201 Most Frequently Asked Interview Questions" and "More Best Answers to the 201 Most Frequently Asked Interview Questions"

What if your manager, your supervisor and your lead person told you to do something at the same time.  What do you do?

Assuming this is a question being asked in an interview (as opposed to being asked for advice as to what to do in a real-life situation), the real question underlying this dilemma is "How do you handle priorities?" or, "How do you react to pressure?"  One way to answer this is to look at the priorities of each person's request and determine which request is more crucial to the mission of the organization.  Obviously, if the CEO asked you to do a favor and pick up flowers for a staff member and your immediate supervisor needs a report ASAP because a client is waiting for the information to place a large order--you have conflicting political and profit agendas.  I would make immediate efforts to meet the supervisors request and, in between, make some quick telephone calls about floral deliveries or use an online resource.
