Questions To Avoid During A New Hire Interview

Questions To Avoid During A New Hire Interview Here at CTC National, we know that it can be tough to hire new people. You want to make sure that a new hire is motivated, reliable, and friendly. It’s important to ask the right questions to ensure a good fit, however, it’s just as important to avoid certain questions. In fact, asking about certain things can even cause you legal trouble down the line.

Questions To Avoid Asking

Below are just a few of the things you should never bring up in an interview:

  • Number of children or their ages and names
  • Marital status or the number of times the applicant has been married
  • Whether wages will be garnished
  • Race or ethnicity of the applicant
  • Age or gender of the applicant
  • Childcare arrangements
  • Sexual orientation

We know that many of these items seem like common sense, but it’s easy to make a mistake. For example, if your applicant volunteers any information regarding the above issues, refrain from asking follow-up questions or volunteering any of your own personal information.

Even with restrictions and rules about interview questions, you can still find valuable information about your possible employees and their work ethic.

For help with hiring new employees at your dental practice, or if you have any other questions about how to run your office smoothly, please contact CTC National.
