Screening/Hiring Practices - Emphasising the need to overcommunicate on Slack
A request resulting from a number of hiring discussions about how several of our more synchronous teams (Security Operations, Infrastructure, etc) engage heavily on Slack and need new hires to do the same. The commonality is these teams take inbound requests from across the company and are also first-line responders to issues and questions.
When actively investigating issues or even to just understand who's around/available and what they're working on, there's a growing need for members of these teams to be more active communicators on Slack to the point of over-communicating. This is to help with comradery, pairing-up on investigating, and spreading workload of inbound issues/requests across online+available individuals.
A challenge we're facing is this expectation isn't being set during the hiring process and candidates aren't being asked probing questions on their chat-based communications, succinctness, and experience/background in chat-based work environment. We'd like to find a way to include this type of probing into the screening and interviewing phases of a loop.
