Interview Questions for Salesforce Administrators

Hi, Welcome Back.
Is your company currently looking for a Salesforce Administrator? If yes, then you need to asked them correct questions so you get the right candidate and not someone you need to teach.

A Salesforce Administrator should have knowledge of Validation Rules, Objects, Fields, Workflow Rules, User Profiles and General Knowledge. So I have prepared questions to ask interviewee  about Salesforce.com. This may even help people who are going to the interview for a salesforce.com administrator position.
Lets Start:
  1. What is the difference between Lookup Relationship and Master-Detail Relationship?
  2. True or False? If you were to delete a record that had a lookup to a child object, all child object records would get deleted as well.
  3. Where is the view Account hierarchy link?
  4. What does the Account Hierarchy tell or do?
  5. Where can you make a field required?
  6. What actions can you call with Process Builder?
  7. What type of Workflow Alerts are there?
  8. Validation Rules, What are they use for in Salesforce?
  9. What is Dataloader?
  10. What is the difference between Profiles and Roles in Salesforce.com?
  11. What one standard object in Salesforce is a conjunction object?
This is what I have so far, but stay tune I shall come up with more.
