Hiring candidates without conducting in depth reference checks is like having a loose cannon on the deck of your ship. Gaining feedback from a candidate’s prior supervisors is critical to understanding the individual’s strengths, areas for development, motivation level, communication style, and workplace ethics. Based on Paul’s bestselling book 96 Great Interview Questions to Ask Before You Hire, this toolkit provides five templates for (1) nonexempt, (2) sales, (3) IT/technical, (4) supervisory, and (5) senior leadership reference checks. Simply save all five templates, and you’ll be off to the races in terms of engaging prior supervisors with customized questions regarding a candidate’s ability to excel in your organization.
