What story would you want to tell the interviewer?

He: The organisation I work in is the worst place to work.


Me: What happened?


He: No one has any idea what is happening and what to do.


Me: That sounds like a problem.


He: Yes, I don't know what is going to happen? Have been seeing this for three years.


Me: What have you done about the situation?


He: What can I do? And why should I? Someone else is supposed to do this.


Me: You seem to have a point of view on what better could be done, why don't you share this with the management?


He: They won't listen.


Me: Have you tried?


He: No.


Me: So why did you stick around for three years?


He (after thinking): I don't want my resume to look bad.


Me: Is it?


He: I was hoping things would improve.


Me: Looks like management is also hoping? It sounds like everyone is hoping, what is wrong in that?


He: They need to take action.


Me: Only them, and not you? Why so?


He: It is their problem.


Me: Picture this, Five years from now you are sitting in your life's biggest interview. What story would you want to tell the interviewer? You stayed in a company with hope for years for someone to do something; or you showed #ownership, demonstrated #accountability and took #action, for self and company?


He had his answers.
