Default interview questions

So all you folks out there have either been on interviews or have even been the one doing the interviewing. So please share with me any interviewing tips you have. I interview people here for jobs and am new to it so I'm curious about how other people conduct theirs. Things I need to really carefull assess: teamwork, motivation, energy level, strengths and weaknesses, how they handle stress, and job satisfaction.

My brother was asked once in an interview, "Why are manhole covers round?" He's a respiratory therapist. He was like and then . He called me later to see what I would have answered and I told him it's because the hole is round which means the cover has to be round. He told them because a round cover won't fall in whereas a square or rectangular one could. There are several ways to answer the question and evidently it determines your thought process.

I'm pretty sure there are a ton of people out there who will fail that question. I like it!!! And I swear, Denise, I will find a way to stick that question in there somewhere for you.
