It's on a list of things service users are requested not to do at a facility I am interested in attending.

Confrontational has very negative connotations, it makes me think of someone always looking for a fight.  Going head to head on an issue I feel strongly about or I think is unjust is something I'm prepared to do.

I am a bit suspicious that they felt the need to use that term in a person spec. It gives the impression that they are having problems with staff at each other's throats. Or they just want someone who will put up and shut up.

We have met the enemy and he is us.

It's not good at a workplace because they will think you like to argue. So no. They want people who will talk others out of arguments instead, while giving them satisfaction with services.

No. "Confrontational" to me means someone is always looking for a fight, is defensive and has a "chip on their shoulder." That's usually not someone who plays well with others.

Well, not a good idea at work place. 

But sometimes it's needed.

Depends on the situation and with whom you are interacting

It depends on the situation. I’m a strong believer that you need to stand up for yourself. But some battles are not worth fighting. The art is is knowing when to be confrontational and when to let it go.

No Way!  Confrontation is just plain scary.
