    ​Hey, I'm new here, so sorry if I've posted this in the wrong category or something but, I've applied for the position of senior prefect and got an interview, but i'm really unsure on how to go about this interview. They will probably give scenarios and ask us what we would do in those situations. But if they asked me something like: if you saw a fight break out what would you do? Or if a kid was getting bullied what would you do? What could I say? One thing people have said not to do is to say 'I'd tell a teacher' too much, tho I have no idea what I'd say in that situation. Could anyone help?
    Also they also say that its good to ask your own questions in an interview but what sort of stuff could I ask related to the position? Thanks for all your help in advance x

    Although I've not been interviewed to be a prefect, that would be my answer if it was the most sensible one, even if I had to repeat it. Only if there is a better answer would I say something different.

    As for questions after interviews, I have done this in job interviews but I cannot think of anything reasonable to ask in a prefect interview. In job interviews it's about asking them about their role and experience with the company etc, which doesn't translate to prefect interviews.
