Questions about how they prefer to be managed; what brings out their best work, what makes it hard to do their best work.

Also? We strongly select for engineers who are interested in the business side, who respect sales and marketing as equal peers.
It's not a good sign if they disrespect business functions, obviously; it's just as much of a yellow flag if they exoticise them. ("I could NEVER do any marketing work, they are practically a different SPECIES")
It's sad, but tech is ridden with so much eng snobbery and anti-biz bias that simply treating other functions with curiosity and respect is a pretty good heuristic for hiring people who are pragmatic, empathetic, and mature.
