Carpenter Interview Questions

"When hiring a carpenter, an employer will look for someone who has completed an apprenticeship or worked as a carpenter's helper and who can demonstrate an ability to erect and rehabilitate building and other structures while maintaining a standard of safety. At an interview you may be asked about your experience as a carpenter's apprentice and any projects you may have worked on, proficiency with specialty tools such as a scissor lift, and your personal carpentry practices to ensure the safety and longevity of your products."
