Interview


 

Preparation:

  • Review the application form
  • Review the SELECT test results

STEP 1: Open the Interview

Hello, my name is ____________ and Iím the _____________ (your position). Weíre glad that you are interested in this position. The purpose of this interview is to learn more about you and your work experiences. I will be asking you some questions about your likes and dislikes, your goals, etc. You will probably see me jotting down some notes -- that's to help me remember better what you said after the interview is over. There are no correct or incorrect answers, what we want is to learn more about you. At the end, Iíll leave some time to answer any questions you might have. If you are ready, we can begin.

STEP 2: Review the Application and Investigate Potential Problem Areas

___All blanks completed?   ___Employment gaps?
___Application signed?   ___Extremely high or low earnings?
___Several jobs in the last 2 years?   ___Earnings show progress?
___Vague reasons for leaving job(s)?   ___Can complete all essential functions?

Example Questions:
I see that you were unemployed from _____to _____. Please tell me about this period of unemployment.

I see that you left your previous employer for personal reasons. Would you explain further?

I noticed that you have changed jobs frequently in the recent past. Why?


STEP 3: Review SELECT Flags and Begin In-depth Questions

While asking the following interview questions, be sure to listen and probe in the following areas highlighted by SELECT:

  • Low Energy Level


 

 1. Tell me about your responsibilities in your previous (or current) job. Which did you like most and why? Also, which did you like the least and why? (Listen for relevant work experience and likes and dislikes that may or may not fit this job.)


 

 

 

 2. Why are you considering leaving or why did you leave your current/last job? (Listen for reliability, job fit.)


 

 

 

 3. What attracts you to this job with our company? Why? (Listen for a desire to work with people as well as an interest in your organization.)


 

 

 

 4. How do you (or would you) try to show each customer or client that he or she is important? (Listen for positive attitude toward others.)


 

 

 

 5. How do you (or would you) influence someone who does not seem to be interested in the apartments you have available? (Listen for ability to be assertive and persuasive, to overcome objections in a respectful manner.)


 

 

 

 6. Tell me about a time when you had to deal with a very difficult and demanding person in your work. (Listen for maturity and an ability to handle frustration without becoming upset or emotional.)


 

 

 

 7. Give me examples of how you handle work during hectic/busy times. How do you keep track of the things that need to be done? (Listen for responsibility and comfort with a demanding schedule.)


 

 

 

 8. What type of supervisor do you like best? What are the kinds of things you like a supervisor to do for you? (Listen for both self-reliance and ability to accept direction from others.)


 

 

 

 9. What would you like me to remember that will convince me (us) that you are the right person for this job?

 

 

 

 


If you are still concerned about the Performance Flag areas, here are some additional questions to ask:
Low Energy Level: Describe your preferred pace. In what types of work situations would you like to be more energetic? (Listen for answers that suggest that the candidate can't handle the pace of the job, or can't self-start to get the job done.) 

 

 

STEP 4: Conclude the Interview

Those are all the questions that I have for you. I appreciate the time that you have given to me. Is there anything that you would like to ask me?

 

 

STEP 5: Make the Hiring Decision


  • Resist the temptation to hire someone just because you need to fill the job. You are likely to pay for a hiring mistake both in money and time.

  • Focus on how well the candidate fits the demands of the job, not how much you like the candidateís personality or how much you have in common with the candidate.

  • The selection process is designed as an aid to the well-reasoned judgment of a hiring manager, not a replacement for this judgment. In the end, every hiring decision is a judgment call. Use the tools provided in this process to inform your decision, not make it for you.
