Tips for Screening Job Applicants
KB Staffing is an expert staffing service, and as such, we’d like to share some of the wisdom we’ve gained while providing temporary staffing options to companies in Polk County.

When interviewing a potential new hire, you want to get a realistic idea of how qualified a person is to perform the required job duties, plus how well they will mesh with your company culture. A good way to glean this information is by asking the right questions.

  • “What makes you interested in this position?”
    This is a great question to ask early in the interview to find out how a candidate learned about the position they’re applying for and to get a sense of their general impression of your company.
  • “What type of work environment do you do best in?”
    Different people have different needs and preferences when it comes to their optimal job performance. Will this candidate be able to focus in a fast-paced warehouse setting? Will they be able to complete tasks without constant direct supervision? These are important things to consider.
  • “What has been your greatest professional achievement?”
    Give the candidate the opportunity to toot their own horn a bit and you’ll get a feel for what motivates them as well as what they prioritize professionally.
