Interview Questions for Getting to know the candidate:

  • What are your strengths and what are your weaknesses?
  • Why do you want this job?
  • Tell us why you to want to work with us?
  • Why should we hire you?
  • What do you know about us?
  • Can you describe your ideal company ?
  • What skills do you have that other candidates might not?

It’s also important to ask about previous jobs – consider some of these interview questions:

  • What is your favourite job you’ve ever had?
  • Give an example of a time when you went over and above in one of your previous roles and why you felt it necessary to do this.
  • Can you tell me about a time when your work has been criticised?
  • Tell me about a time when you had to give someone difficult feedback. How did you handle it?
  • How do you handle working with people who annoy you?
  • If we were working together and I asked you to do something that you disagreed with, what would you do?

Just for fun! :

  • What other interests do you have outside of work?
  • Tell us a weird fact about yourself!
  • What is your favourite food?
  • If you could have one super power, what would it be?

Of course, these questions are just a guideline! We’re sure you’ll throw some tricky ones in, and maybe even some fun ones to help get a feel of their personality. Make sure you set aside enough time to get through a good bunch of questions. If you ask too few, you won’t be able to judge if they’re the right fit. Ask too many and they might feel as if they’re being scrutinised.

As much as the interviewee is trying to impress you, you want to set the right impression too. Make time for them and their interview and have a quiet space set aside to conduct the interview. The more comfortable you make them feel, the more likely they’ll open up and give you a real insight into their skills and what they can bring to your team.
