Line Production Manager:
Interview Guide

What’s the most accurate predictor of a new Line Production Manager candidate’s job potential? Many people think it’s an interview, one where they “get a read” on the recruit’s likelihood to fit into their organization.

Line Production Manager:

  • Line orientation
  • Production approach
  • Directs and controls others in a corporate setting
  • Decision making efficiency
  • Decision making accuracy
  • Written communications
  • Inspires accountability and teamwork
  • Practical intelligence
  • Analytic ability

After the interview, individual assessment scores can be summarized, and a determination made as to how to move forward with your Profit Center Manager candidate.
