Have you ever had to take the plane from a superior, and how did you handle it? So far in my career, being a proactive back-up to my Captains has allowed them to correct any error they may be making before safety or flight rules are jeopardized. That said, I would not hesitate to take the aircraft in a situation where the Captain did not respond to my verbal inputs and the situation became urgent. Yes, I asked the ca if he could see the taxiway to hold short of. He said yes, and proceeded to try and pass it. I hit the brakes and we stopped short. He knew then he was wrong, and double checked where we were in jfk. Yes, we were just clearing Rwy 4 in HOU at night in moderate precipitation. The tower told us to taxi to the gate with him (gate is right off the Rwy.) The CA called for the After Landing Checklist. I preceeded with my flow and out of my peripheral vision I saw a citation taxing with out any lights on. The other aircraft was converging at us from the left as we were on a high speed exit. I initially thought the CA had seen the other aircraft but the our speed was very high I said "Brake" he hesitated and so I applied them fully to prevent us from having a collision at a significant speed. Later the CA said thank you and that he did not see the other aircraft because the post that boarders the windows on the inside of the flight deck obstructed his view. No

Tell us about a time you went the extra mile at work… To me, going the extra mile is a mindset that I try to bring to work every day. Daily work doesn't often present a major opportunity to stand out, but if I'm always looking for the little things and consistently doing those, the positive impact is great over time. One example of this mindset is... (insert yours). Please never use a wheelchair or assisted with plane side bags... they've heard it one hundred times and its not very impressive either Showed up early for a trip, walked a passenger "with very poor English" across the airport to their departing flight.
