From lies to lack of preparation, poor attitude, and insincerity, you can pick up on signs and collect evidence during an interview that the potential employee is not for you. If you know what you are looking for, employers can successfully spot these job interview red flags - before making a job offer to a prospective employee.
They're all deal breakers and you'll recognize them most effectively in a well-thought-out, consistent, employee selection process. You'll benefit, too, if you involve your trained employees in selecting their prospective coworkers.
And, never underestimate the importance of inviting prospective employees back for a second, and even a third, interview. Genentech, a sometimes Fortune magazine pick as a best employer, invites candidates back for multiple interviews, sometimes as many as five or six times, with 20-30 potential coworkers.
After all, who has the most to gain - or lose - from missing these interview red flags for employers.
