You're supposed to say something like: I asked for a private meeting and shared my concerns and we came to a mutual agreement.

At least that's what I got from one of the many job interview books I've read. The questions are just so ridiculous, another horrible one is how do you work with a difficult co-worker. True answer is I talked about her behind her back with everybody else who hated her and walked on egg shells in her presence. She used to tattle to the boss if we talked out loud, in a small room with six people in cubes. I don't miss her one bit.

Keep those fingers crossed.
