Interview Protocols During Pandemic

For those interviewing/hiring for office positions, how reasonable is it to expect video interviews rather than in-person during this time?  If requiring in-person meetings, what is the expectation of mask-wearing for both the interviewer/s and the interviewee?  If an interviewee showed up in a mask but the interviewer was not wearing one, would they be expected to stay and excluded from consideration if they did not?

  • I have a client conducting in person interviews in Texas right now.  They are following the guidelines of the state/county.  I have told my candidates that is the process.  I have also provided the option of zoom interviews for anyone who does not feel comfortable going in person.

    Hope this helps!

  • We have been doing video interviews in place of most in-site interviews. We do an in-person final interview with the top candidate. We do require candidates and managers to wear masks and be physically distanced through the whole interview process. If the interviewee refuses, they self select out of the position. If the hiring manager fails to follow guidelines, we would address it through our corrective action processes.

  • At the Call Center I work for, we are doing online Zoom interviews only.  I've done hundreds now that way and only a few have requested to do it over the phone instead of face to face.

    If you have to do in person interviews, I would definitely make sure ALL parties wear a mask!
