So I had an interview yesterday for a job that I really wanted & the only thing that I disliked was it was a group interview . I feel like I like one on one interviews better because it doesn’t seem like the answers are the same . Which do you prefer ? Have you gone to an interview & it ended up being with other people & you didn’t know ?

Those always went pretty good for me and everybody got hired. That took some of the spotlight off of me.

I haven`t experienced being interviewed in a group but I`ll be uncomfortable that way and might end up rejected

@Dyvette16 Maybe If ever experienced that I`ll just answer their questions but not expect anything positive

@m_audrey6788 just try to stand out and think positive rather than negative , there was 1,000 people that applied to this position and only 20 of us got hired , very thankful for this

I have never had a group interview, just one-on-one interviews. I do not think I would like a group interview either.

We had a group interview at my last job, and I hate talking in front of people. Especially, when asked all the interview questions, and the room is so quiet while waiting for my response. I must have done something right, because I was hired. I hope you get hired, if this is the job you want.

It's ok being in a group interview. You can come up with your response based from their answers as well.

All my interviews have always been where I was the only one being interviewed. There may have been people that passed before me and after me but I was alone in the room where I was being interviewed.

I have never had a group interview and it sounds like a rather bad idea to me, I was a supervisor and I want to interact one on one with potential employees.

@Dyvette16 That's sort of a strange method of doing it. I hope you get it though

I like one on one interview. It's more personal and comfortable than sitting in front of a group

By group interview, do you mean that there was more than one person on the interview panel asking you questions? Or do you mean there were a bunch of you job applicants in a room answering questions at the same time?

I have never been a part of a group interview. What was the job you were interviewing for?
