Questions for Basis Candidates

At my last few jobs I was asked to help screen candidates for an open Basis position. These are some of the questions I used to see which of the candidates was serious (who took the time to find out about the company before coming in for the interview) and gauge their level of Basis knowledge.
  • What do you like most about Basis work?
  • Why do you want to leave your current position?
  • What Databases have you worked with and what was the largest (in TB)?
  • What background hav
  • What do you know about our company?
  • e you had with system recoveries and DR methodology?
  • Provide us with your background on system and client copies? How was this done? How long did it take? Did you use any specific methods or software?
  • Have you had any experience with clustering (Unix/Windows)?
  • Approach or philosophy to system tuning (ABAP and Java)? What tools would you use to monitor these?
  • Experience acting as a tutor and the development of documentation?
Other Criteria to consider:
  • How would this person fit within the current team?
  • Does this person show a tendency to share information?
  • Has the person received adequate training to complete the job tasks?
  • Is the person well versed in project management or compliance reporting requirements?
