What to look for in a graphic designer

I'm looking to have a logo designed for my new business. I'm hoping to find a graphic designer to create my design, but I really don't know what qualities/skills/techniques I should look for when deciding on someone.

I will want to use this logo on my website, business cards and possibly letterhead, and eventually I'd want to use it for t-shirts and flyers.

Are there certain file formats that I should want? Is there a specific design application (cs4?) that I should ensure the designer is using? Are there any other questions that I should be asking?

I'm not looking to hire an expensive design firm. I'd rather try to find a freelancer to give the business to (plus, I would imagine it would be much less expensive to go that route). I've started browsing craigslist (yeah, I know) for someone local....any suggestions on how to zero in on the right person?

Thanks guys.
