Definition: Group Interview

It is a type of interview where a number of candidates/interviewers are involved. It is of two types:

- Candidate group interview: This is the interview where a number of candidates are interviewed together. This is used extensively for screening the candidates in an organization. It is preferred over the one to one interview as it saves time. It also helps the interviewer understands how the candidate behaves in group. It also generates a stress situation, which tests the candidates.

- Panel group interview: In this case the interview is taken by a panel, and not by individuals. The panel generally consists of representatives from different divisions, for example HR. The benefit of this type of interview is that the candidate can be tested on different domains. Hence, the suitability of the candidate can be confirmed. This is majorly used for selection.
