Employers: experience hiring "over qualified" workers

I am participating in the hiring process for an important non-technical professional-level position in my department. I'm screening the applications and there appear to be some people that are overqualified. Some are gainfully employed and others are unemployed due to the economy. We would probably pay around 2/3 or so of their peak market value to date.

We need continuity for at least 3 to 4 years (preferably longer) to consider the hire a success. I am of course skeptical that some of them would stay as long as desired, but we could really benefit from a top notch person.

Is there any circumstance where you would strongly consider an overqualified person?

I felt bad for this thread, so I figure I'll give it a bump.

Heh! We just had a layoff but we're desperate for design engineers. These are people with intimate knowledge of CAD and have some smarts, not necessarily "engineers." We're down to two finalists with Masters degrees in engineering. They're over-qualified for sure, but it's hard to turn down applicants that contribute immediately.

I suspect they will be so happy to have a job, they will be very loyal to your company. I know I would.

But honestly, the feelings of loyalty would most likely fade in about a year or so and the prospect of a higher-paying job would most likely make them leave.

I've had a few interviews and I have been passed on due to lateral moves and downward moves by others.

It's hard to break in right now.

Are there benefits to make up some of the difference in salary?

People completely underestimate benefits. A similarly paying job from one company to another can mean a difference of $1000s in compensation per year.

I'd have to say, considering all of the fish in the pond (currently.) Try to keep it close to a 'mutual match.'

knowing what i know about your company, which isn't a lot.

If the overqualified guy is hungry and just learned a hard lesson about the value of employment....I'll give him a look for sure.

You can get a high-performer for a mid-level price but don't complain when they leave you as soon as the economy turns up (current potus not withstanding).
