Policy used to be the same questions had to be asked of every candidate. However, now that the union is busted, they can ask anything they want. I was asked how I got along with my supervisor, and it was well known that my supervisor bullied the employees (there was no policy against bullying) and had been instrumental in over 1/2 dozen people being fired in less than 4 years. Didn't get the job. Got yelled at by my supervisor for trying to leave, and my job was eliminated a year later.
