Panel interviews will usually be more formal than a single interviewer format; the panel will generally take turns asking structured questions and will take good notes.
A panel interview consists, as you might imagine, of a group of interviewers instead of a single person. The panel interview is a time-saving method for companies who wish to have several representatives from different parts of the company see a candidate. Instead of scheduling several interviews over a period of days or weeks, the company reps can all see the candidate at once. They also have the advantage of seeing the candidate at the same time and hearing the question responses in the same context.

The employee manual says that your work day runs from 8:30 – 5:30 every day. Here’s a simple question: what time does work start?
The primary difference between traditional and behavioral based interviewing is that traditional interviewing asks generalized questions such as, “What motivates you to put forth your greatest effort?” while Behavior-Based Interviewing (BBI) asks for specific examples from the recent past, such as: “Give me an example of a time recently when you needed to adjust quickly to new information. What did you do and how did it turn out?”
With traditional interview questions becoming stale, many recruiters believe that behavioral-based interviewing (BBI) is the key to predicting how a candidate would perform on the job and fit into the organization. The driving concept behind BBI is that past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior.
