Fresno means “ash tree” in Spanish because Fresno is covered with Ash trees. For the outdoor lovers, Fresno is located only 60 miles from Yosemite National Park and Kings Canyon National Park, and 75 miles from Sequoia National Park.

Interviewing Tips

When interviewing, you should get answers to three questions:

  1. Is the applicant capable of performing the job? (Is the applicant at least capable of learning to carry out the essential responsibilities of the job after receiving training for a reasonable length of time?)
  2. Can the applicant be trusted with the responsibilities associated with the job?
  3. Is the applicant the best candidate for the position?

When interviewing, be tactful and careful. Under State and Federal laws, individuals are protected from discrimination at the application and interview stage of pre-employment. You only need enough information about an applicant to satisfy the requirements of the position. You must be careful not to ask any possible discriminatory questions.

Become familiar with the tips and questions in this section. Have them ready for quick review during the actual interview.

Interviewing Tips

  • Prepare for the interview. Become familiar with the job requirements and the applicant’s resume or application.
  • Always verify past employment history
  • All questions should be job related
  • Look for signs of achievement. Generally, the best indicator of future performance is past performance.

Consider using these, or similar interview questions. Ask open-ended questions which let the applicant do the talking, such as:

  • Tell me about your favorite job.
  • Tell me about your last job
  • What new skill have you developed over the past few years?
  • Tell me about a problem you overcame in your last job?

Probes, which clarify facts and attitudes. Examples are:

  • Do you enjoy talking to people on the phone?
  • How well do you react to direction from supervisors?
  • Would you object to wearing a uniform?
  • How would you feel if your supervisor asked you to do additional tasks?
  • How would you react to being asked to work overtime or on weekends?

Close-ended questions, which pin down an applicant’s response. These might include:

  • Are you able to work overtime whenever necessary?
  • Would you be able to accommodate a change in your work shift?
  • Does driving in inclement weather bother you?
  • Have ever punched a time clock before?

Assessment questions evaluate and applicant’s ability to manage themselves or others. Examples are:

  • Have you been given two jobs to do at once by different supervisors? How did you accomplish this?
  • Has a co-worker’s lack of skills ever interfered with your accomplishing a job?
  • What situation in your career made you the angriest at the time it occurred? Describe the situation and how you handled it?
