So I'm in the process of re-evaluating my hiring process. In the past, we have simply hired based on references from friends and family. This method was worked for seasonal workers, but I need employees that can stay on full time and long term. So far I've developed a set of pre-interview questions and a set of in person interview questions. Beyond the basics, what are some good questions that everyone's had good results from asking?? Also, I know a lot of people do a field evaluation as part of the process. Problem is, its winter. Nothing is growing. What can I get them to to show they're abilities right now?? I'm trying to hire someone right now that we can train while things are slow so once business picks up they can transition without a problem.
