1970s/80s, screening questions prior to interview for a role at YMCA of Goderich:
"Describe two competencies you have and why they would be strengths in this position.
Share a challenge you have overcome and what did you learn from the experience.
If you do not currently live in Huron County, are you prepared to relocate to Huron County should you be the successful candidate for this position?
What is your salary expectation?
What is one challenge you anticipate facing in this position and what support will you need to work through it?"
The typical "tell me a time when...", 1980s style questions - they are really behind the times and their training for managers/supervisors (the ones who will be in the interview) is so out of touch with the 21st century. They should focus on how your previous experience at "x" employer could work into the job opportunity you are being interviewed for . . . not "here's a scenario where 'x' irate customer comes to complain and is not willing to listen, and demands to speak to your manager..." etc.
