Management Questions

Here is a list of sample questions we found that are designed to give a good over all read of a candidate and allow you to make a decision based on their score. These are based on us looking at data from over 45000 references and analyzing the trends that come with it. However we intended this to be a starting point for our customers to use and mold their own sets based on their requirements

  • How would you characterize your experience working with the candidate?
  • What impact has the candidate had on the organization?
  • What are candidate’s biggest accomplishments or key contributions to the organization (please provide examples)?
