I am going for an interview to be a secretary/bookkeeper at an elementary school tomorrow morning and am reading over some sample questions I might be asked, and this is one of them:
How would you handle this scenario?
You have a crying child, a parent, a teacher and the bus radio all needing your attention at the same time. Who do you handle first and why?
I am thinking the crying child, because they may be hurt or something, and children should come first, but then the bus radio, what if it is an emergency and they have to have help-although then there should be others listening to the radio who can help, but I don't know.....how would you handle it?

Handle the crying child first. If the child is crying your not going to be able to handle anyone or anything else. Then handle the bus radio, then the teacher, then the parent. I go in order of importance for that moment.

The child, if it was an emergency the bus driver wouldn't radio the school. I agree with South.
