    Now I passed my test for the MAPP and have the panel interview next week. I know a lot of these questions are open ended and you are given time to come up with an answer, but here are my questions......

    what types of answers are they looking for?
    are there any wrong answers(besides the obvious)?
    if you fail how long must you wait to take it again?

    The better question is why would you want to be a sup?

    The Partners Forum was added to give management a place to discuss issues specific to them. We get upset when they add their two cents in our forum(s)-----let's show them the same respect.

    To the OP---I can't answer your questions but I wish you luck. Dave.

    The OP isn't management yet. You and I both agree there are times it's a good decision and times its not. Just seeing if we need to try and talk some sense into the OP or wish them luck. That's all

    I passed my panel interview a little over a month ago on the first attempt. Its situational questions, can't give you details. There are wrong answers, I know people who have failed this part before. If you fail you have to wait 6 months before reapplying.

    Be yourself.
    Keep your nerve - calm yourself down (or pump yourself up, depending on YOU) - but be yourself.
    Be honest.

    Simple as that.

    In my opinion it is a joke. It's called a panel interview, but you take it over the phone. I don't know how you can judge a persons reaction and response that way. That being said, the answers are obvious, just phrase it in the most PC/HR way you can.

    Don't touch, leave area, notify supervisor, or when in doubt, get out. Should pretty much cover anything they throw at you. By all means never quote anything out of the policy book. And may he force be with you, Anakin.

    the important thing is to listen to each question carefully, picture yourself in the situation, and explain the steps/actions you would normally follow.... do not try to use "scripted" or pre-written answers. just visualize yourself in the scenario and verbalize each step. Also what you learned from it.

    I failed the panel (didn't want to take it anyway, as I'm only interested in Specialist positions).

    You get written feedback on your responses along with your pass/fail result. The main theme on mine, was that I didn't work with others and collaborate to solve problems, opting instead to always take on and solve problems by myself. Apparently, being able to handle your own business without relying on others, is a bad thing. Maybe it's just my experience, but I've found that the only way something gets done right, is if I do it myself (or provide so much hand holding that I might as well have just done it myself). For panel interview purposes, this is frowned upon.

    By the way, I didn't quote the policy book, but I did quote a line from a Jim Casey speech in one of my responses!

    Very interesting. Thank you for insight into your experience with the panel questions. I am preparing to take them and feel that I may have tripped over that independence pitfall as well had you not mentioned it. What types of questions did you get asked?

    Everyone that does a panel signs a non-disclosure agreement.

    Even with the anonymity provided by the internet, I signed an agreement and intend to honor it.
