    "describe a time where you had to take control of a situation and what actions you took to take control"
    I was stumped, I didnt know how to answer it lol

    If you haven't heard about it already, look up the STAR technique of answering competency questions.

    The example spent have to be anything big, it's just about showing your ability to use your initiative to turn something around/make it a success.
