    Post Are group interviews with other candidates legal in New Jersey.

    I participated in a group interview with other candidates in New Jersey. Are these legal? I had to answer questions and say my name in front of the other candidates. Whenever I have interviewed and hired people in the past, I had to maintain strict confidentiality with candidates' information. Group interviews seem to violate this expectation of confidentiality.

    Thank you in advance.

    Generally as long as you're not asked illegal interview questions, these have pretty much been held to be legal. They're becoming more common. Just greet your competition with a smile, relax, be professional, and I suppose it won't be too big of a deal. They're generally a weed out type of interview, but hey, you know about interviews, so you got this in the bag. Regarding confidentiality, as long as they don't ask your weight, marital status, things like that, I don't know that they'll get into legal trouble. If they ask something that's questionable, just find a way to use some tact to get around it.
