Always ask behavioral questions during the interview

What’s one way to sniff out a potentially toxic employee during the interview process?

Behavioral interviewing is the best way I know to weed out toxic employees. This technique involves asking situational based questions and having candidates give you concrete examples of how they behaved when there were in certain situations. It is next to impossible to fabricate a story from your past, especially when the interviewer drills down deep to get to the bottom of the situation. It’s never failed me!
