Go-to questions to ask when interviewing a potential candidate
When multiple people from an organization are interviewing the same person, there can be a lot of repeat in questions. What are a few things that you like to ask when interviewing potential candidates for jobs, or what do you like to be asked while on an interview?

We don't do tech screenings with questions like this. We interview using conversations. I find the entire idea of having a list of technical question or non-technical weird questions (what kind of bird would you be) to be a waste of time and actively counter-productive. They tell you effectively nothing about the abilities of a useful candidate. Discussions are much more telling and much harder to fake or prepare for while not weeding people out at random based on testing .0001% of their potential knowledge without knowing if it is something that they should know about. Also far less likely that the interviewer is the one that is wrong - which I've seen be the case as often as not sitting on both sides of the table. Interviewers rarely research their questions and this makes it that much worse that you might weed out people based on knowing too much!
