You may think you know what a contractor is, but there are some details worth considering. You hire them to do the work on your project that an employee of yours need not do, including providing all necessary equipment. For example, if you want someone to build a deck in your backyard, they would give you quotes for how much it would cost and provide you with all the necessary materials.
First, you want to create a plan for the interview and make sure that it includes a set of questions. This will be your first impression of this contractor, so don’t forget these essential details! You should consider what specific qualities are most desirable in contractors; they might include experience level or willingness to work odd hours if necessary. It’s also helpful not just as an interviewer but also when looking at resume information like job history and references from previous employers. You’ll know who fits best into your organization’s culture, which ultimately will positively impact their performance within the company. The last thing that we recommend asking during interviews is whether or not there has ever been any disciplinary action taken against them by past supervisors – being honest about potential.
