Just curious if anyone has done that?

I had a final interview last week and I wish I would have recorded it with my app on my phone because I want to replay my tone of voice, inflection, and my answers. A couple of times the HM had a weird tone of voice so I would like to replay what I said to debrief and possibly improve.

I mention it because a respected poster a couple of years back mentioned he went to classes to mock interview and that led to him getting a good job.

I don't know if that's possible, but I used to turn on my phone recording for in person interviews. Really showed me where I failed to answer the questions in a acceptable way....

Employers frown on recording conversations and frequently have a no recording policies. Even if your not doing it for any suspicious reasons it won't go over well if caught.

Also, some states are one-party, others are all-party when it comes to consent to record. It could be illegal in your area.

CA is an all-party consent state so its illegal unless you get their permission.

I understand the legalities I have a quick beep tone, almost inaudible that the app gives which makes it legal.

I just want to better myself on interviews nothing about suing anyone.

Just trying to find a good employer.

I doubt that an almost inaudible beep tone is sufficient to give all parties informed consent to recording.

However, if you do this only for personal improvement and it never sees the light of day, there is no harm done and I don't see that ther is any real problem. If you try to use it in court for some reason, and there is no recording acknowledging permission by all parties, it will get thrown out and you might be liable for statutory damages.

If I were interviewing you and I discovered that you were recording the interview, regardless of consent laws, the interview would be over immediately. Thank you for your time, the door is that way, I assume you can find your way back to your car, you will receive a rejection email from HR later this afternoon.

That is weird. Why do you do this? What does your mom/dad/sister or husband/wife/gf/bf's think of this?
