If you plan to beef up your staff this busy holiday season, make sure you ask the right questions. Your standard interview questions about long-term goals and career ambitions don’t apply.

Instead, ask candidates to describe how they handle pressure, stress and a tremendous workload. If they’ll be interacting with customers, learn about their previous customer service experience, and ask them to explain how they plan to deal with difficult people.
