Types of interviews:
Several types of interviews are commonly used depending on the nature and importance of the position to be filled within an organization.
In a NON-DIRECTIVE INTERVIEW the recruiter asks questions as they come to mind. There is no specific format to be followed.
In a PATTERNED INTERVIEW, the employer follows a pre-determined sequence of questions. Here the interviewee is given a special form containing questions regarding his technical competence, personality traits, attitudes, motivation, etc.
In a STRUCTURED OR SITUATIONAL INTERVIEW, there are fixed job related questions that are presented to each applicant.
In a PANEL INTERVIEW several interviewers question and seek answers from one applicant. The panel members can ask new and incisive questions based on their expertise and experience and elicit deeper and more meaningful expertise from candidates.
Interviews can also be designed to create a difficult environment where the applicant’s confidence level and the ability to stand erect in difficult situations are put to test. These are referred to as the STRESS INTERVIEW.
This is basically an interview in which the applicant is made uncomfortable by a series of, often, rude, annoying or embarrassing questions.
In the final category, there is the APPRAISAL INTERVIEW, where a superior and subordinate sit together after the performance appraisal to discuss the subordinate’s rating and possible remedial actions.
