Hi All,
I am posting this with a hope that i will get a valuable information from seniors and co-Hr's.
Well as Hr-Manager i need to conduct interviews to many some times i need to take interview to the candidate who is in a different place(b'lore,delhi..and so on) .
Inorder to call them to Hyd we need to pay them the conveyance . I need to be shure whether it is worthy to pay conveyance to the candidate or not before i take a discission. so i take a telephonic interviews as a first round ...many times i feel they are referring books or surfing net for the answers as they take a pause in answering.....
I am not really able to analyse the attitude of the candidate.
So could any one help me out in preparing a qustionare to analyse the attitude of the candidate.

Dear Peer,
Thanks a lot for your valuable information. But i am not looking for a slide shows on attitude. I want to prepare a questionnaire which helps me and co-hr 's which helps us to analyse the attitude of the candidate( employee). Hope to receive your valuable information regarding the same.

Dear Avani, :D

If you are looking for outsiders, it is always better to conduct telephonic interview. It actually helps you a lot to scrutinizing right candidates (For some extent). :wink:

During telephonic interview, you need to be very careful.

You can judge person’s attitude from his/her tone, voice peach, frequency, fluency and the way of talking. In fact, you can judge his/her seriousness from voice.

Apart from all general questions, you can ask following questions to judge candidates’ attitude. :arrow:

1. Why should I hire you? :?:

2. Describe your ideal company, location and job

3. Tell me about a situation when your work was criticized

4. Looking back, what would you do differently in your life?

5. What makes you angry?

6. How do you feel about working nights and weekends?

7. How could you have improved your career progress?

8. Give me an example of your creativity (analytical skill…managing ability, etc.)

9. What was the toughest part of your last job?

10. Looking back on your last position, have you done your best work?

11. Why should I hire you from the outside when I could promote someone from within?

12. Is attitude matters? Give me any example.

I have tried these questions while taking interview. It is really very helpful.

Best of luck, :)

I think Meha has given good points but by simply asking you get nothing, you many not get what you want if you just ask rather you try to involve yourself and see howz he behaving while answering your questions; you can ask him few temparamental questions as well to see how smart he is in managing

you can ask them few general questions as well; for eg: if you wana know about this Leadership qualities then throw one scenario front of him and ask him how would he manage - say he is managing 10 guys in his team and 6 are excelling out of it rest are not meeting the expectations and ask him what would be his steps how would he manage -- based on his outcome you would be in a position to judge him what he is

see i call the US guys as well (most senior) for CTO/VP positions and you know once yo start the conversation you can sense the pulse of it

it would be very difficult to judge one's attitude in one go, but yes you can have an idea in the early discussions atleast

hope these few inputs might have cleared your way
