David Smith, the Personnel Manager of a major European insurance company, talks about the stages of an interview:

“The interview normally takes place by me being informed that the candidate has arrived, in which case, I leave my office and go and greet him in the reception area and bring him personally into my office and sit him across the desk. I normally start by asking the candidate to tell me what the job is that he’s being expected to do, just to make sure that he’s understands fully. Then I ask him to tell me a little bit about the company that we’re working for so that he’s at least understood exactly what we do or the basics of what we do anyway … then I normally review his CV, and in particular either his previous employment or his current employment which is very important. Basically this is done to try to draw the candidate out, see how good he is at expressing himself, and to see what kind of character he is. Then I normally give him my views of what the position is that we’re recruiting for and also my view about the company, then I normally give him a period of 5 to 10 minutes to ask some questions. Then I go back to him and just talk about him, and maybe then when he’s fully relaxed, or more relaxed, put in a few of the trick questions, not a few, I would say usually normally one or maybe two maximum. The interview normally lasts a minimum of 45 minutes if the candidate is up to scratch and can go on for about an hour.”
