/ Asked by Susan
I just had an interview for an position with a company I'd very much like to work for. I met with the hiring manager and another person who is in similar position who has been with the company for years. I prepared for this interview. The hiring manager asked me a few questions, but we mainly just had a conversation, same with the EA. Is this a bad sign that they didn't ask too many questions?

Congratulations on your interview! Hiring managers and companies all handle interviews differently so it's difficult to say with certainty but in my opinion, I don't think this is a bad sign. A lot of hiring managers just want to see if you're a good fit for their team. For entry-level positions especially, it's easy to teach someone the skills they need to perform the job, but it's difficult to course correct if someone doesn't fit in with the team from a personality perspective. If the conversation flowed well and you feel that you connected, I would take that as a good sign.

Good luck!

Not at all! Some interviewers have their own style and like to get more of a cultural feel in addition to understanding your capabilities. Personally, I love the conversational style interviews. While it may not work for all positions (i.e. technical role have more testing/questions type interviews), I've heard this approach is becoming more common. Best of luck with the remainder of the process!

Congratulations on the interview.   

Many companies use this method when interviewing and it is not a bad sign.   I would suggest that at the end of each interview you ask about the process and how you should follow up in regards to the position.   They may give you the Recruiters name, but it will at least give you insight into their process and what you can expect.  Good luck on securing this position.
