Dear MEL Topic Readers,

The stress interview: a technique that goes too far?

A stress interview puts a job candidate under intense pressure to assess how he or she deals with work overload, multiple projects or workplace conflicts. Stress questions include insults, criticism, anger evoking comments, and embarrassing or humiliating questions. For example, “Why did you study at the college that is not so great?” or “Explain why you didn’t accomplish much in your current/former job.”

Of course, it would be difficult for an employer to judge if a candidate is suitable or tough enough for the job only by asking strengths, weaknesses, or accomplishments. But there may be a few aspects to look at this practice.

Should a stress test be part of a job interview?

Is an interviewer allowed to conduct a stress test in a job interview?

Does an interviewee have to undergo a stress test during a job interview?

And how much is too much or appropriate for a job interview?

Enjoy reading and think if you would accept a job offer after an extreme stress interview.
