Are they old school? I like phone interviews. I think they are a great screening for both sides prior to an actual face to face interview. Thoughts?

I've had several phone interviews. All but one led to an in-person interview.

Oh no, they are very much alive and well, for me anyway.

Definitely not dead. It's usually step 1 before an in-person interview.

Lol not even close to being dead in engineering. I had a ton of them when I was job-hunting last year. Which is a good thing...less wasting time/taking off vacation days to go in-person just to find out it's not going to work.

During my job hunt in mid-to-late 2017 I had several phone interviews with companies. A few turned into in-person interviews, and one of those turned into an offer.

All first-round interviews at my current company happen over the phone, even for local candidates. Energy industry, mostly IT, Engineering and Compliance.

Just interesting that I have had only one phone interview. The rest were FTF interviews.
