Interviews & Assessments
Hiring people who give a sh*t…
“eTeam, keeping it real!”
- Behaviorial interviewing is a technique used by eTeam to learn about candidates’ behavior, in particular, how they acted in past situations. We believe that past behavior is a better predictor of future behavior than is speculation
- An example of an eTeam behavioral interview: “Tell me about a time that you had to deal with a disgruntled individual in a work situation.”
- Why is this effective? Because the candidate must draw on his/her past behavior, which is the best predictor of future behaviors
- In situational interviewing interviews are designed to draw out more of the candidates’ analytical and problem-solving skills as well as how he/she handles problems with short notice and minimal preparation
- Situational interviews are similar to behavioral interviews. Behavioral focus on a past experience situational interviews focus on a hypothetical situation
- For example in a behavioral interview the interviewer might start a question with: “Tell me about a time you had to deal with…” In a situational interview the interviewer asks “How would you handle…”
At eTeam we provide a DiSC assessment for final candidates. It is a personal assessment tool used to improve work productivity, teamwork and communication. DiSC is non-judgmental and helps people discuss their behavioral differences. If you participate in a DiSC program, you’ll be asked to complete a series of questions that produce a detailed report about your personality and behavior.
The DiSC model provides a common language that people can use to better understand themselves and to adapt their behaviors with others.
This can be within a work team, a sales relationship, a leadership position, or other relationships. DiSC profiles help you and your team increase knowledge about the candidate and how he/she responds to conflict, what motivates them, what causes them stress and how they solve problems.
- The DiSC can help facilitate better teamwork and minimize team conflict
- Develop stronger sales skills by identifying and responding to customer styles
- Manage more effectively by understanding the dispositions and priorities of employees and team members
- Become more self-knowledgeable, well-rounded and effective leaders
