Question: What would you do if you were asked to do something is not worth doing? 

Tips:

a. It’s important not to assume outright that it’s not worth doing.

b. Don’t break any rules to do the task.

c. Bring things up with your manager.

Example: First of all, I would try to make sure I understood the situation, especially if I was being asked to do something that would normally be against the rules. Once I was sure I understood what I was being asked to do, if it was still an issue, I would explain my misgivings. After that, if it’s just a matter of procedure, I’m doing things the boss’s way because supervisors have a different view of the situation. If it’s an issue of safety or another major concern, though, I would not act until I was sure that what I was doing would not be harmful to our overall project.
