Interview Questions for a Remote Workforce

We are beginning to realize that COVID-19 isn’t going anywhere soon, which has forced many employers to rethink their current physical office space and workforce situation. 

Whether employers are seasoned at hiring remote employees or are exploring this option for the first time, Ninja Gig has compiled a list of top-rated remote interview questions for human resource professionals. 

Many employers are using online video conferencing software, such as Zoom, FaceTime or Skype, to set up meetings to interview candidates. This, in itself, will help assess the candidate’s basic understanding of technology.

Here are some excellent interview questions we recommend asking remote candidates. 

Interview Questions

  1. Have you ever worked remotely? If so, what necessary changes did you make to adapt to working at home?
  2. What do you enjoy about working from home? What do you find most challenging?
  3. When working at home, how do you organize your day?
  4. In a remote setting, how do you communicate with your manager and coworkers?
  5. What recommendations do you have for team collaboration?
  6. Give some examples of how you have handled the stress of COVID-19.
  7. What life lessons have the pandemic taught you?
  8. Would you be willing to work in an office again if remote work is no longer needed in the future?
