Interviews: Traditional or Transparent – Post 5: Cultural Connections

After a successful first interview, digital music giant Spotify takes candidates out of the office and into…the bar? That’s right; this non-traditional setting allows candidates to mix and mingle with potential co-workers where guards are let down and the atmosphere is more relaxed. Alcohol is of course not required, but this environment allows managers to evaluate how the candidates interact in a group setting and with their potential peers. Spotify has sought to create a culture where employees are friends who get along, and this step in the interview process aligns with that objective.
