ESR Interview Guide Generator
Employment Screening Resources® (ESR) is pleased to offer a free web based interview guide generator to help employers build printed interview forms for any position. The ESR Interview Guide Generator tool allows employers to select from generic interview questions, or to create their own questions, and then create a printed form that can be saved or modified. Using a "structured interview" guide during applicant interviews helps employers ask permissible questions in a consistent fashion for all applicants for a position. The tool also gives employers the flexibility of adding their own question to different sections of the interview guide.
- Setup tab: Complete each of the setup questions
- Questions tab: Choose your form questions by checking those you wish to include on your form. Questions are grouped into sections and will be displayed on your completed form within these groups. You may change the sections that your chosen questions will be put into. You may also add one or more of your own questions
- The Finish tab will display your form as it is built. You may navigate between all tabs until your form is complete. When you are ready, click the print button on the Finish tab. Your form is not saved and should be printed before navigating off this page. Your form can also be copied and pasted onto a WORD document for future reference.

This free tool solves several issues for employers. It helps employers and HR professionals produce a printed structured interview guide and focus on developing relevant questions for each position. Printed interview forms also help employers ensure that interviewers are asking the right questions every time, in the right way. An employer should only choose those questions that are valid predictors of job performance for a particular position. Additional information on conducting interviews is available in Chapter 8 on "The Interview Process" in the "Safe Hiring Manual" by ESR President Lester Rosen.
NOTE: The sample questions listed are questions that appear in various public sources suggesting interview questions. By use of the "Custom Question" section at the end, an employer can create any questions they wish and put them into any section they wish. ESR offers no legal opinion whatsoever if any question is legal or appropriate. An employer should contact its attorney if there are any questions as to the legality of any interview question.
