What unusual or useful interview techniques do you know of or can think of?
The question comes to mind from this post by Wynn in another thread:
Here's one I "suffered" when being interviewed for Eskom many (many) years ago.
The interviewers are set up behind a table at one end of the room. The interviewee, upon entering the room, is directed to a single chair placed at the other end of the room. One of the interviewers then "has a hearing problem," constantly prompting the interviewee to speak up.
Good marks for the interviewee who doesn't get rattled. Full marks for initiative to the interviewee who picks up the chair and moves up to the table.
