Interviewing techniques and interviewing questions

There are many different interviewing techniques and interviewing questions used to screen candidates

You may be using some of these already in your interviewing process.  Some of the more typical interviewing techniques include:

  • Screening interviews
  • Stress interviews
  • Group interviews
  • Tag-team interviews
  • Follow-up interviews
  • The most popular is the behavioral interview

Behavioral interviewing assumes that past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior.  However, what behavioral interviewing does not take into consideration is the human capability for change.  The best predictor of future behavior is:

  • The presentation of past behavior
  • How someone currently behaves
  • How they respond to their past mistakes

Using our Response Analysis System™ more accurately depicts the integrity of a person.

A common myth about interviewing questions is: If we ask the right questions we will get the information we need to make the best hiring decisions possible.

But, it is not about the questions you ask, rather it is how you listen to the candidates’ responses given.

"From our small company perspective, deciding to retain the services of A-list Interviews was a difficult financial decision. Now in hindsight, hiring Beth Smith has been one of the best business decisions that we have ever made.


Beth has helped us hire two exceptional employees that have exceeded our every hope and wish - making our lives much easier, and coming to work everyday a joy. Not only did Beth lead us through the entire hiring process with guidance, confidence and clarity, she also took the time to teach us how to learn and manage our future employee hiring. On our own, we now have the tools and structure necessary to lead a successful interview process. In addition, Beth has proven to be open and willing to coach us as we go."
