    Interview questions for Apprentice Position

    Hi All,

    I was wondering if anyone can think of some good interview questions for our apprentice position. Trying to find questions that are not too difficult is quite a challenge and any thoughts would be much appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Paul

    1. You see a student put a mouse in their bag, what do you do?
    2. A problem comes up with a printer, what would you do first?
    3. A user can't log on a computer, what should you check?
    4. How would you trouble shoot a mouse not working in a computer?
    5. What do you know about TCP\IP?
    6. Have you any experience with Active Dirctory?
    7. What would you use a computer for in a normal day?
    8. Any experience that would help you working in a school?

    1)If you were on the way to fix the heads printer and a teacher says a class of 30 cant log in what would you do ?
    2)If Jimmy comes to you while your putting paper in the printer and says when he goes home he is gona get hit by his dad what would you do ?
    3)What would you do if someone comes to you and tells you that someone is hacking the system
    4)What would you do if a teacher comes to your and tells you to get a printer next lesson

    fix the heads computer, lets be realistic here - schools are schools.

    these questions are all traps - you can never win in this game

    Practical test wise...

    What are these?

    Give them basic PC components or pieces of common kit. Ask them to tell you everything they know about them.

    Anyone who wants to be an IT apprentice should at least know what the internals of a PC are and have seen a mini switch even if it is part of a router

    We have used variously: a sata hard drive, a stick of ram from a desktop and a stick of ram from a laptop, a 5 port mini switch, a WiFi point, a POE injector, and a home router.

    Make this work?

    Give them a complete PC in a box and ask them to set it up (Screen, mouse, keyboard, PC.)

    What's wrong with this?

    Show them a PC with something obvious disconnected.
