How to prepare for a 5 hours long interview?
I have an interview line up next week that will be for 5 hours long with 5 different people. I never have an interview that long before so I'm a little nervous as to what to expect and how to prepare for it. I already have an interview with the HR recruiter already, this next one will be with the department director, manager, 2 senior, then with the HR recruiter again. What type of questions do you think each of them will be asking according to their position? Will they be the same or different? Then what type of questions should you ask each person according to their position? I'm just nervous as in how many questions can they possibly ask and how many questions can you possibly ask them and etc...

I sympathize with you. I did the same thing but with seven different people from all different departments that ultimately worked together. It was long and exhausting. It took ALL day (8-5p), I came home and passed out. I was mentally exhausted... More

Have never heard of anything like that. 5 hours from directors and managers? Don't that seem a little odd to you that supervisor's would even begin to have that much time to question potential employees? Well must be quite a company and position for you to be interested. Good Luck.

It could be a filmstrip interview and they give u papers to fill out and then they make your ID card and do a FBI check on u. I had an interview this long when i worked at E-Toys. It does get boring and they will give u breaks to take, just relax and u will be okay.

Google "Behavioral Interviewing". Most companies use this method today. Know what it is so you can adequately prepare. And be as specific as possible when answering their questions. Think of the STAR method of responding. Situation, Task, Action took, Result.

My company ends up doing stuff like that. A lot of times you can probably expect some similar questions, but like any interview, be prepared for ANYTHING. They may also have you speak to so many people to make sure you are a good fit for the department. GOOD LUCK!!!
