    It's unclear what you are asking.
    Do you think those questions are in the passive? Or are they the sentences you want to put into the passive?
    Few of your phrases are actually good sentences or questions. For example, here are some questions:
    How was the interview?
    What kind of question can a candidate refuse to answer?
    What is hiring based on?
    Can you give an example of what you want?

    None of your sentences are correct, except the last one. You need to be able at least to write a correct question before you can learn to write questions in the passive.
    Can you write these questions correctly at all? I've given you some answers above.

    They are all correct questions, except the third one. But I'm not sure what it is that you want to do with them.

    These questions don't lend themselves to translating from active to passive, because they're not statements, like SVO (Subject Verb Object).
    1. This can't be changed.
    2. Passive is "How can a question be refused an answer by a candidate?
    But no one would say that.
    3. "How is the company worked against by stressful interviews"
    Same comment as 2.
    ...
    5. is passive Active is "What do they base hiring on?"
    6. As in 1.

    You should practice passives on direct indicative statements rather than questions. When you're confident with those, you can try harder sentences. Not everything has a passive equivalent.
