Getting to truly know a candidate during an interview can be a daunting process. Hiring as a whole can set a business back or move it forward just by making the best hires. People are your most valuable asset, and working to find, hire and retain the best people to meet your needs takes true commitment. Interviews are more than a get to know you process, they are a process to better understand work ethic, skills and how specific candidates may or may not fit in a company’s culture.

This question tells you a candidate’s ideal company culture. If it doesn’t fit your client’s, it’s time to move on to the next person. Some candidates may be looking for a small office environment, while others a corporate setting.
