Are they polite? Politeness is an important feature for any successful candidate. The reason for this is simply a candidate that has manners and is polite is less likely to screw up the interview.
Now I know what you are thinking, politeness is nonsense. The chances are all candidates will be polite and courteous when they meet with you but are they polite to waiters if you are meeting them in a restaurant or are they polite to your receptionist when they turned up.
Although this can seem slightly less than useful the last thing you want is a candidate who is not polite going into client offices all blasé and treating the receptionist poorly and not getting the job.
