6. If Hired, What Is the First Thing You Would Tackle in This Position?
Potential candidates have no hope of answering this question if they have not been given:
(a) a comprehensive job description of the duties required
(b) received any explanation of the goals and objectives of the organisation
(c) an explanation of what challenges the organisation faces
Most people have no hope of answering UNTIL 9am on the first morning and sitting in the chair looking at what needs to be done.
For me, my answer would be finding the most optimal route and transport method from my home to your office to get to work on time every day.

Tell Me About a Time When You Overcame a Challenge?
This, like most other questions, needs to be asked as a STAR question, ie in four parts:
Situation
Task
Action
Result
You need to know what the situation was, what the candidate needed to do, the action the candidate took, and what the result was.

1. Besides asking strictly work-related questions HR should also ask the candidate about their achievements, goals, aspiration to get a better understanding of how they will perform in the long run.
2. They should ask the questions which can decide their stability and focus on their work.

In my many years here on CiteHR, I notice that Indian interviewers ask far too many irrelevant questions. Your sole objective here is to find out if the potential candidate has the skills you need, can do the job you need done, and will be a good cultural fit with the organisation. That can be achieved by targetted performance based interviewing and by asking shortlisted candidates the same set of questions so everyone can be scored on the same basis.
The reasons why people have so much trouble with recruitment - and get the wrong people - are simple.
1. No planning
2. No position description for the vacancy
3. No person description for the vacancy
4. No standardised set of questions for the interview
5. Failure to use performance based interviewing, ie, STAR questions
6. No proper shortlisting of candidates to produce the top 5 or 6 people to interview
7. Using agencies to provide candidates, most of whom end up being unsuitable
None of this is rocket science. I have proved time and time again that this works.
