In another forum the question was posed on how to avoid mistakes when hiring people remotely, for working remotely.
The only way to avoid making mistakes completely is not to hire ;-)
Before the interview, you should already have a structured management system you use for your team assignments, tracking and reporting. Know what you want them to fit into.
Ask them to give examples of how they manage their time and management systems they have been under.
Ask them what systems were most effective, what they could improve.
What were and are the challenges they face with remote working?
How do they balance their time?
Discuss your management system and ask for their feedback on it.
Manage to the system - everyone needs structure to be one team.
