New research conducted by the job search platform Glassdoor has identified red flags for both hiring managers and job candidates to watch out for during the interview process. The survey of over 1900 recruiters and over 500 job candidates found that somewhere between 36-56% of recruiters adopt unreliable or ineffective tactics when interviewing potential hires. Practices such as asking overly vague interview questions or disregarding a job candidate's demonstrated qualifications were identified as some of the primary red flags that should be avoided. Poorly trained interviewers were also pinpointed as a source of ineffective interviewing practices. The research concluded that job candidates should be aware of how an employer's interviewing processes might hinder their chances of landing the job and that employers should recognize the need for effective, well-trained interviews to help reduce the risks.
