Look for desired qualities ie:  detail oriented, high work standard, team

[Histonet] Interview Questions

Okay, My People - I will be one of the interviewers for locating my
replacement).  I've not been this "fortunate" before and I do know there
are questions one cannot ask so that's not an issue.  What I'd like to
know is what I SHOULD ask.  This position is fairly straightforward -

with that potential).  What would YOU want to know about a candidate
that would convince you that this person was The One? I need questions
with "meat" to them.  Your suggestions will be much-ly appreciated.
