Find Out What Motivates Your Candidates

What are your expectations and or goals for this position?

While this question seems fairly reasonable to ask, the responses you may secure could be all over the place. Specifically you could hear about compensation, about respect, about growth, about contributions. All in all the order of what is presented in response is key as it may demonstrate priorities. A candidate that leads by telling you they expect a raise in a year and good benefits has a different view than say the candidate that says they expect to be challenged and that if they meet the challenge to have a chance to move up. Only you can determine what are the right or wrong answers here.
