  11. 11. The Interview Method The interview method is commonly used for blue-collar jobs, as the employee may not be able to answer the questionnaire. The job analyst gets the information by interviewing the employee about his work or the immediate supervisor. To get the more specific data the analyst is guided by a set of facts about the job records or takes note on the information given by the employee.

A well trained job analyst gives the feeling that the job is properly evaluated and the employee is satisfied.
  12. 12. The Combination of interview and Questionnaire Methods Under this method, the job analyst gives the questionnaire and then conducts the interview later. The analyst verifies the information from the employee’s immediate supervisor thru a structured interview. To verify further information, the analyst interviews the employee concerned. The content of the questionnaire and the verified information are the bases for the writing of the job description.
  13. 13. Observation and Interview Method This method is involved in the observation of the worker at the jobsite and in their station. The observations are noted while the employee is performing the tasks assigned to him. Oftentimes, time and motion study is involved in this activity. After the observation, the job analyst interviews both the worker and the supervisor to verify the information gathered through observation and the results of the interview, observation time and motion study. The results of the interview, observation and time motion study are the bases of the written job description, which will be sent to the supervisor and the employee concerned for final review and final printing.
