I also like to ask the following:
- What are the top 3 attributes you are looking for in your next hire? (this gives me an opportunity to respond with how I fit that bill.)
- What qualities help team members here be most successful? Or, What qualities are most valued in employees at this company?
- Do you have any 360 feedback mechanisms in place where employees rate their manager and the company? If so, how does this department tend to score in the areas of leadership, vision and culture?
- Out of the skills you list in the job requirements, how would you prioritize those from most important/critical to least (another opportunity to highlight that you have the most critical skillsets needed, even if you may not have all of the skills listed.)
- How would your team describe your management style?
