Interview Questions

I have been asked to prepare questionaire for interviewing new applicants for an electrician job.

I would like your help in determining suitable questions, keeping in mind that the interviewee is under stress, confused and under the microscope. May not be able to answer with cool mind as in normal case when programming or troubleshooting.

What would be the general question, that will bring out the basic info necessary to judge him, knowing that question should be basic to any plc, we may be using Siemens, and he may be very proficient with AB. Now if we ask him questions related about Siemens it won't bring out the Best in him.
What we want to know is how proficient he is with programming.
Can you help me phrase the questions which will be able to get the best out of him.

For e.g., will the follwing be good to ask?
1. Do you know about direct/indirect addressing, have you ever used it for programming or troubleshooting?
2. If yes, what is its strong/weak point?
3. What programming language do you use? Ladder, Flowchart or STL?

These are the general questions I have thought of, can you please help me generate some better ones, to select the right candidate.

Thanking you,
