Group Interviews

Pupil In Class Using Digital Tablet

Group interviews are conducted in the process of recruiting team-leaders or employees with either team-leading, work-distributing, and prioritizing qualities. A group of candidates is given a hypothetical question like – “How would you pitch a real estate sale to me as a team?” The group needs to distribute responsibilities and give presentations.

Group Interviews

Pros

  • The group is asked to answer individually or as a group, to check team-spirit.
  • A group of applicants is given the same question(s) at the same time, so creativity can be easily showcased.

Cons

  • It is time-consuming, as individual applicants participate in the presentation.
  • It might lead to a confusing situation, as two or more people could opt for the same responsibility in the group presentation, like introducing/concluding.
