Thanks for all of the feedback. I’ll likely just ask our receptionist. I wanted to try to brainstorm some ways of finding out independently, but as has been pointed out people will likely more often than not in that situation answer with what they think you want to hear.
I am very much more interested  in finding the appropriate person to fill the role, so I’ll just focus on questions that do that. 
Thanks again everyone for your feedback.

believe you can and you’re halfway there.

> I come to you with a question about an interview tip, not in the manner you may think though. Tomorrow as part of my new administrative responsibilities for the very first time I will be interviewing cited individuals, and I’m curious to know if there’s any thoughts on questions I might be able to ask that would give me a sense of their level of professional dress. For about five weeks I’ve been painstakingly developing questions that will get at the core of what I need to as far as the job responsibilities, but I am at a bit of a loss with  this aspect. I certainly want my questions to be both professional and legal. Any thoughts?
