I am new at my company. I have learned that our interview process is very loose – there is very little structure to what we ask and how we ask it. Do you have any recommendations?


Yes!  The interview is a critical piece of the recruiting process and, if handled correctly, it can be effective. If not, it can be worthless or, worse yet, illegal. Here’s what we recommend:

  1. Know in advance who will be on the interview team and what questions will be asked.
  2. Use a panel interview where multiple people are interviewing the candidate at the same time.
  3. Ask the same or similar questions of all candidates.
  4. Stick to the script – try not to get off track or be influenced by non-work related questions or conversations.
  5. Most importantly, avoid prohibited interview questions. You can find a list of them here.
