Why some job interviews are downright weird


Hiring the right person for the job can make an enormous difference to the success of an organization. Yet a startling number of employers are incredibly un-rigorous when it comes to interviewing, says author Alison Green, and creator of the workplace advice column Ask a Manager.
It's obvious why hiring's important: strong employees get far better results than mediocre. You'd think that employers would put real effort into how they interview and hire.
You'd expect that they'd conduct rigorous screening of job applicants, and use real data to figure out which interview questions vet candidates most effectively.
Yet in many cases, you'd be wrong.
They give their interviewers little or no training and often leave them completely on their own when it comes to figuring out what to ask job candidates. As a result, we've got some really bad interviews happenings out there.
