If you use your imagination it's not too hard to do a peripheral check on
somebody without going through the hassles of a formal background check.
Court records and processed law enforcement information is publicly
available in most areas. I'm not sure how legal it would be but it's not
hard.

Unfortunately in my office our discipline leads ask all the questions and then tell me when we have a new hire. It isn't until the person is actually hired that I get to see whether or not he/she actually knows CAD.

If I ran interviews in an environmental-civil design firm I would ask:

How long have you been working in AutoCAD?
With what version of AutoCAD are you most familiar?
How much experience do you have in the environmental-civil discipline?
What other CAD programs do you know and how proficient are you with them?

Luckily in our office, as CAD Manager, I take part in our interview process.
First, I screen resumes for potential skilled Designer/Draftsmen. Then our
actual interview is two parts, an AutoCAD test given by me and a verbal
interview given by our Engineering VP. My test is a written description of a
simple retaining wall detail that the person must draw in AutoCAD. I stand
behind and observe. We've really been able to screen out the "talkers" from
the "walkers".
