Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate and analyze the interviewing practices of Jordanian interviewers in the private sector. One hundred and four interviewers responded to a questionnaire. The study reveals that the interview is the most widely used tool for employee selection, and the structured‐panel interview is the most common type used. Planning for the interview process is found to be broad in nature and lacks rigor and details. Positive verbal and nonverbal behavior of the interviewee is found to be the significant factor affecting the interviewer's selection decision followed by negative verbal and nonverbal behavior. Interviewer's values and attitudes, stereotypes, and interviewee self‐confidence and physical attractiveness are found also to be significant.
