It is important to remember that some applicants may be better at interviewing than they might be at the actual job. Even if a candidate has answered everything correctly, it doesn’t necessarily mean you should hire them.
To limit your chances of employing a bad hire, you need to understand which red flags you should be looking out for. Here’s what some experts say on spotting red flags in a NetSuite developer interview.
Sean Gillespie, COO at SuiteCentric:
“I am suspicious if a candidate demonstrates a lack of research into the company before the interview. They should have an understanding of what the company does, the mission statement or values, and, at the bare minimum, interviewers should be able to tell if the candidate reviewed the ‘About Us’ page. Being able to discuss the industry or current or past clients is a positive sign, as well.
“If someone lacks passion and personality during responses to questions, that is a red flag. I understand people being nervous, but the candidate has to show at least a little liveliness during your conversation with them. It can help you understand how they feel about the position and if they are ambitious.
“And finally, If a candidate doesn’t admit to a weakness or they seem to display a victim mentality, then I take note. Honesty is everything, and no one is perfect. A company works best when its employees are honest. Through honesty, they will understand each other’s strengths and weaknesses, so they can cover any skills gaps or pick someone up when they are down.”
