Jezzies, I have to interview three new people today to fill a job in my department and while I have done this a very small amount of times before, I am exhausted and I feel like I have completely forgotten what you’re supposed to do. I offer them coffee or water and then................WHAT DO I EVEN SAY? Please let me know your best interview questions that you have either given or that you have been asked!

Just FYI, these are preliminary first round interviews that come through the department, and then they’ll have a second round interview with the higher ups and mucky mucks that will make the final decisions. There’s no single candidate coming in that I’m actually excited about or that I felt would be a perfect fit based on resume/cover letter so these are kind of hail mary’s with the best apps there were.

Anyway please give me questions to ask! And thank you in advance for your help, as per usual, hivemind.
