25 Interview Questions to Ask a Prospective Virtual Assistant Before You Hire Her

Before I hire someone, I like to talk with them on the phone and run through my list of interview questions so I can feel them out.

Plus, by talking to a prospective virtual assistant (or other type of contractor), you’re going to be able to tell if there’s a ‘connection’ or not.

You can download a copy of my list of interview questions by clicking the box below.

“This List is a lifesaver! I was looking for a project manager to work with in my field, and had no luck finding a good fit on my own. I immediately found and hired a great fit directly from Melissa’s Service Contractor List. This list is now my go-to resource for finding and hiring high-quality people to help me grow my business.” – Amy Harrop

What is this List Exactly?

why would I pay someone to do something I can do myself for free?The fabulous service contractors list is a private online list of service providers that I initially created for myself, for my own personal use. It’s my new list that took me a year to create before I released it.

It is the exact same list that I refer to when I’m looking for an expert.

I did NOT just go to Google and throw this list together willy-nilly (because obviously I don’t hire or work with just anyone).

I personally and thoroughly review their website from top-to-bottom, and I spend time researching people on social media and other places online (if I can find them), to see what people are saying. And in some cases, I will reach out to them with questions to see how they respond & communicate.

I only add contractors to this list as a potential hire if they meet my initial criteria and high standards!

I do this because I don’t want to waste time later weeding them out when I’m looking for an expert. Once they’ve gotten the star, I feel confident in reaching out to them about projects & doing an interview.

If I’m not happy with someone for whatever reason, they’ll get cut from the list.

  1. I like your list of what to ask a VA when hiring. I would like to know what you expect for a answer on the questions you ask. Also where is the best places to hire a VA, and do you sub-hire out your VA on your team?

    Thank You for all

  2. Melissa, you always provide great content. My question is this: WHY don’t you offer a LINKEDIN share ink? I am always looking for content to share with my network on Linkedin and am often frustrated that some excellent posts don’t provide the LI share link. Is there a reason you don’t?

    • LOL! Okay, okay, I turned it back on 😉

      I not sure why it was turned off – could have happened when we were redesigning my site, not sure.
