SQL Server Expert Interview Questions

I'm looking at recruiting a SQL Server expert to join my team.  I want someone who can take ownership of our existing database, design a whole load of new tables, views, procedures etc for our current phase of development as well as help to optimize and improve the existing product.
SSIS skills are important.

I want someone who is better skilled than myself or anyone else in my team, therefore can you suggest any interview questions that I can use to determine if the person I'm interviewing is genuinely good?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
