Prioritizing and multitasking as receptionist (job interview question)?
I had a Receptionist job interview last week (which I didn't get) and they asked How I prioritize and multitask if there are customers on the phone lines and a line up of people in person waiting to speak to me.
I said I would take it first come/first serve and take each call one by one alternating person and answering call. I didn't get the job so I am going to guess they didn't like that answer? I have a different reception interview tomorrow, what would be a great answer to a question like this?

You should answer people present in front of your first - there's voicemail for the rest.
And this isn't necessarily the reason you didn't get the job. There's a billion paths to no, many of which are out of your control.

People in front of you take precedence over people on the phone.
