    Hi all,

    I recently had a phone interview for the management consulting summer internship position at KPMG and was asked the following question which I don't feel I answered adequately and was wondering what a well-rounded answer would be?

    I was asked to imagine that I had been doing a boring/repetitive task for the last week with a team and my manager had just told me go over it again from scratch and asked how I would react.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks

    I said I would try my best to do the required task from scratch as I've been told by my manager but then I realized one of their core values if 'continually seeking improvement' so they don't expect one to simply accept anything at face value, so I said I would try to contact the manager and ask if I could arrange for a colleague to do it and get involved in other projects myself?
