Peer Interview Questions | eHow

In many companies, would-be employees sit down with a human resources team or individuals who would be their superiors during the interview process. However, this isn’t always the case. Some organizations, concerned with how new hires would fit into their existing team, allow the team members themselves to conduct an interview. If you're a worker conducting an interview, ask a few questions to aid your hiring decision.

Even the most enthusiastic candidate will likely not be a good selection if he doesn’t have the education necessary to effectively complete the job. Start the peer interview by inquiring specifically as to education. If you find that one of the interviewees went to the same educational institution, this question may even give you something over which to bond.

Though the candidates will almost certainly not know the nitty-gritty specifics of the position, they should have some idea as to what it will entail. Instead of simply telling people what the position involves, ask what they know. By doing so, you can gauge the candidate's preparedness. If he has done his homework, he will likely be able to provide a reasonably complete answer to this question. After he tells you what he knows, fill in any blanks.

If your organization uses group work often, you likely want to select a potential employee who can work effectively with others. Similarly, if the work you complete is often done alone, an independent worker may be your best choice.

It is often advantageous to select a candidate who seems naturally motivated to go above and beyond. To see whether the candidate is motivated, ask her to provide information as to what she hopes to complete in the position. If she simply says that she wants to perform her job duties, she may not be as independently motivated as you would like. Conversely, if she has some ideas as to how to innovate or advance your organization, she may be a wise selection.

Even though other companies likely perform similar jobs to the ones you do at your company, your business is likely different from these other industry members in important ways. To ensure that your candidate has a specific desire to work for your company, inquire as to why he is eager to work for your organization above the rest.

A good question to ask the potential employee is why they want to work for your company.
