Recruitment Manager Interview Questions

Recruitment Managers are in charge of overseeing a company’s recruiting processes to ensure that qualified applicants are recruited. They make necessary improvements to hiring processes, measure the success of recruitment teams, and monitor recruitment metrics.  

Use these questions to determine if a prospect has worked on the recruitment side of the talent lifecycle: 

  • What technology do you believe is most critical for running a successful recruitment department? 
  • Would you prefer to handle the whole recruitment function in-house or outsource it? 
  • Describe the steps you take to ensure that hiring managers and the recruiting/HR department are on the same page in terms of workflow and applicant entry requirements. 
  • How do you guarantee that you find recruits who meet all the culture-add and technological competence requirements? 
  • What would you do if you just found out important facts about a successful job candidate after he or she was employed? 
  • Under what situations would you organize group interviews? 
  • How do you keep track of key recruitment metrics? 
  • What are the most efficient methods for lowering hiring costs? 
  • How can you stay up to date with the new labor legislation? 
  • What are the most important factors to consider when creating an appealing career page on social media? 
  • Describe the various hiring KPIs that you track. 
  • How do you avoid hiring biases?
