Even if I could define "good attitude" (which I can't), I wouldn't waste my time trying to assess it in a candidate.
Apart from true psychotics, it's generally possible to get good performance out of someone with any sort of attitude, provided he is managed correctly.
When I worked for large companies some of my best performers were people who had been pushed out of other parts of the same company because of their "bad attitude".
The answer was generally some combination of managing their specific issues, coupled with structuring their tasks so that these issues had minimal importance.
