Hello everyone.

I have a group interview coming up this week. Why do employers choose group interviews vs individual interviews? What kind of questions should I expect to be asked.

What should I do and what should I avoid doing...

Thanks and wish me luck.

Sorry....but are you related to "The Blonde" on these forums...?

Sounds like all the same types of 'questions'...... ?

The only thing I can tell you is to pay attention to anything they tell you about the practice or themselves. I have only been to one and the dr's talked about their wives, where they went to dental school, their kids, the staff's names, production goals. Then they handed everyone a sheet of paper and asked us to answer ?'s about what they had just said. Anyone missing more than 2 was asked to leave. Needless to say, the room cleared out quick. They said if you wanted the job, you would have paid attention. Then they gave us a bunch of "what if" ?'s about problem patients and more left. It was a unique exp. Good luck

No? But for someone who talks a lot about how many news grads there are out there you would think a lot of people would be asking similar questions especially when they are trying to start out? That's just me.

What a clueless doc. Turned an interview in some kind of game show. Goes to show how little most docs know about running a practice, especially what the priorities should be in selecting new hires!

You got that right. I have never heard of such. Don't think I would interview. Next they'll ask you to bark like a dog and pat your head and rub your stomach at the same time.

Ha-ha! You are right!!
He has a turn over rate like no other. They had 3 of us there and at the end of that farce and handed us a contract to go over that we would have to sign stating while on the clock we would only utilize business principles based on the Church of Scientology. Plus we would have to attend seminars at our own expense to learn them. I said no thanks. That was a new one on me.
