What Are The Best Interview Questions To Ask Candidates As A Hiring Manager

I'm busy recruiting again at the moment. I started my career in recruitment and picked up some excellent tips during that period of my career.


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? 


Many years ago I wrote a blog post aimed more for candidates and how to be successful at interviews.
