My company has recently made a new hire for a position within my team. My team currently consists of entirely non-technical members including my manager with the exception of myself.
The position being hired for is of a technical nature and as such, I would be working with the new hire the most out of all my coworkers. I have been informed by the other interviewers (who are all from non-technical backgrounds and some of which are members of my team) that the interviews were primarily fit based.
I have not been asked to interview the candidate at all and thus do not know how the new hire will perform in the role. Furthermore, my manager has not mentioned anything in regards to the new hire and I've only been able to gather information from other interviewers.
I think the hiring process is unusual but I don't have much experience to go on. Does this process sound unusual? Should this be viewed as a red flag against my current employer and manager?
