Ineffective Interview

            Ineffective interviews can be such as questions to avoid. For example, yes/no questions, obvious questions, questions that rarely produce a true answers, leading questions, and questions that are not job related. Also don’t violate EEO laws, such as asking ages if they have children or if someone has a disability. Also asking about salary and benefits from a previous job isn’t effective. Lastly, not having a plan or having a unstructured interview can be extremely ineffective for interviewing.

My Personal Experience

            I personally have only been through one official interview. The two individuals asking me questions were welcoming and were personable. They asked me around six or seven questions, but they were open ended. Looking back at the interview I thought they did very well, because they had a number of people that they were going to hire, and the questions were towards the job and what experiences I have been through. Overall, I thought the interviewers did well and I don’t think they did anything wrong. One thing that I do question is I had a trip that I was going to over the summer and they questioned if I should go. I did get hired for the job, but they STRONGLY didn’t want me to go on my trip due to me missing work. Which we discussed this in the interview.
