Honesty. We talk openly about tasks, functionality and conditions. It is important that the candidate's expectations, which we form when answering questions, coincide with reality when he enters the company.
Don't get hung up on the downsides. It is important to highlight all aspects of the work, even the negative ones. But you need to do it right. It is not necessary to exaggerate the negative factor, it is important to present even the weak sides neutrally. Cons in work are normal and it is important not to dwell on them.
We give detailed answers. “Yes", “No", “Leave me alone” are bad examples. By asking a question, the candidate wants to know more details. The full-fledged answers of the hiring manager show the openness of the company and the ability to make contact. Don't you want to leave a good impression?:)
Remember that the impression that you leave about yourself, the candidate will carry into the IT world, and, perhaps, after meeting you (despite the outcome of the interview), he will even become an ambassador of your brand! :)
