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

___Several jobs in the last 2 years?   ___Earnings show progress?

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
  • Low Self Control


 

 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. What were your most significant accomplishments or successes in this (these) job(s)? (Listen for work ethic, values, commitment.)


 

 

 

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


 

 

 

 4. What attracts you to this job in our company? Why? (Listen for a desire to work and a desire to serve others as well as an interest in your organization.)


 

 

 

 5. Tell me about a time when you found it difficult to get along with someone with whom you worked. What led up to the problem? What happened? (Listen for an ability to work within a team and maintain positive work relationships.)


 

 

 

 6. What type of supervisor do you like best? Least? Why? (Listen for a willingness to be supervised.)


 

 

 

 7. What are some of the things on which you and your supervisor(s) disagreed? Start with your most recent supervisor. How about the one before that? And before that? (Listen for a willingness to be supervised.)


 

 

 

 8. How do you think your current or former employer would rate you with regard to being at work on time?(Listen for work ethic and reliability.)


 

 

 

 9. In previous jobs, were you able to work at your own pace, or was the pace set by the boss or the process? (Listen for energy level, willingness to put forth effort.)


 

 

 

 10. Tell me about a time when you had to work together with others as part of a group (in school or on a job). How did you like it? (Listen for openness and a lack of prejudice.)


 

 

 

 11. From your understanding of the job, what aspects of the job will you like the most? What are some things you might dislike? (Listen for job knowledge and job fit responses.)

 

 

 

 


If you are still concerned about the Performance Flag areas, here are some additional questions to ask:
Low Energy Level: Describe your preferred work 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.) 

 

 

Low Self Control: Tell me how you usually make decisions about things. Please give me several examples. Why did you make the decision you did? (Listen for self-discipline. Does he/she think through the consequences first, or does he/she do the first thing that comes to mind, and regret the consequences later?) 

 

 

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.
