And Another Thing...

Having issues getting the right people on your team??  Start at the very beginning of the process…before the first interview… to find the right match of skill and attitude.  You need to be sure you know “who” you are looking for – and if the applicant sitting in from of you is the right fit.   This process starts with pre-planning.

  1. Be sure you have an accurate job description and specific details regarding the position; shift, location, other non negotiable expectations (ie drivers license).
  2. Use these details to place your ad; in today’s job market you will be flooded with applicants – so the more specific you can be the better
  3. Plan out the interview -  Decide which skills are most important for the position, and then focus your questions on assessing those skills. Consider a functional interview to test their technical skills.  Don’t forget about behavior skills – someone who can work with the team will likely be essential.  Below are questions you may want to consider to help in the evaluation of such skills.
    1. If you had to evaluate your performance in your present job on a scale of 1 to 10, how would you grade yourself and why?
    2. Describe a recent event in your job that really challenged you.
    3. Why do you want to leave your present job?
    4. Describe your perfect job. Perfect boss. Perfect team. 
    5. What have you heard about our company that leads you to believe you would like to work here?
    6. How often do you like to meet with your supervisor?
    7. When you’ve had an idea for a new project or a new way to do things how did you communicate it to your co-workers and supervisors?
    8. How do you relieve stress on the job?
    9. Tell me about a long-term project you worked on, how did you approach the work?
    10. Tell me about a situation where you really blew it. How did you handle it? What did you learn?
    11. Think of a major accomplishment you had in your present job. What aspect did you find most satisfying?
    12. If you could buy any skill that you don’t possess, what would it be?
  4. Don’t settle!  It is far easier to hire right; than to manage a the wrong fit.
