Group Interview Questions and Answers


Group interview questions are often used as an initial screening tool to select candidates for a second, one-on-one job interview.

The types of interview questions are usually general and not specific to the technical aspects of the job opportunity.

The main purpose of group interviews is to determine qualities like communication skills and interpersonal ability, persuasiveness and the ability to influence others, leadership and delegation.

Other competencies assessed during a group interview include problem-solving and planning skills, stress-tolerance and the ability to work and contribute effectively as a team-member.

Expect some debriefing-type questions. These group interview questions will most likely be asked in a group situation after the team exercises have been completed.
