The Six Most Revealing Types Of Interview Questions

Looking at someone’s education and background can be helpful when screening job candidates, but the best indicator of who’s the right fit can’t always be found on a résumé. Companies ranging from big names like Pinterest to small startups are conducting culture interviews to build cohesive teams that match the feel of the office—not just the job description.

“Relying on someone’s background can be very misleading; it doesn’t tell the whole story,” says Tara Kelly, CEO of the customer experience software provider SPLICE Software. “Our workplace is like a family, and we are always looking for someone who is the right fit.”

Culture interviews are part of the SPLICE hiring process, and the process starts with the job ad, which includes quotes from current employees about what it’s like to work at the company. Kelly says she hopes this added insight attracts the right applicants.
