i’m sorry but can we please abolish behavioral interview questions and instead just have interviews be more like a conversation between the candidate and the hiring manager

Honestly behavioral are so much easier then technical. Technical questions freak me out and I alway worry and stress about them.

Me too! I find the technical questions very hard.

It would be nice for both parties to know the truth of what they need to know to make a decision. Sometimes it feels like a bummer that you go through standard type questions, but it’s one way to try and get their. Do the interviewer a favor and offer that open discussion, take the conversation there if you can.

How would you be able to assess the skills a candidate has just based off a conversation?

Honestly though, even with all the dumb questions they ask. How many people lie? How many bad hires have companies made because if you’re confident and BS you beat out the employee that may have been a better fit but more reserved. The interview process is dumb and outdated.

I don't want to ask the recruiter with the interview coming up in the next 2-3 days, as it might set a bad opinion.
