How are the questions in a phone interview different from the in-person interview? At my company we always do phone interviews first. This is usually done by HR, but sometimes done by the hiring manager. When I (as the hiring manager) have done the phone screening, I have used most of my questions then. In the in-person interivew then we are either rehashing stuff already covered or have little to talk about. I imagine this problem is less of an issue for exectuive or more senior candidates?
How do other people handle this? Any recommendations?
FYI. I am a engineering manager and hire entry level to senior level engineers, but all as individual contributors and team leads, but not managers.
