Recruiting is hard.
Finding the right person is hard. I was asked this during the week from another CRO in SaaS.
> Here are my go-to questions that always work:
+ How did the culture at your last company empower or disempower you?
+ What where the characteristics of the best boss you’ve ever had?
+ Describe how you’ve had a conflict with a co-worker?
+ What kind of feedback do you expect in this role and how often do you expect it
+ What do you want to do differently in your next role?
+ Among the people you've worked with, who do you admire and why?
+ What are you really good at, but never want to do anymore?
+ What were the traits of the best boss you've ever had?
+ What were the traits of the worst boss you've ever had?
+ What was the reason you were hired in your last role? And have you achieved that since you joined?
+ When have you felt the lowest in your career? Did you realize how you felt in the moment? How did you respond?
+Why are you here?
