Share your experience: calling references

It’s not easy to have all the answers, especially when there isn’t a rule or a law to turn to. Sometimes, we need advice from others. Please share your experience with this week’s question!

Q: I know what I can and can’t ask when I call a potential hire’s past employer. But I get stumped on what to say and ask when I’m calling a general reference. It’s often a person’s friend. What questions do you ask to learn about someone’s character?
