For each position assign weights an multiply rating by weight. Sum up scores to get an overall score.

This form is an example of what an interview evaluation form might look like.

The person coordinating the interview can pre-fill the first section. The interviewer would fill in the second section during the interview and after the interview would complete the rating part of the form. The form would then be sent to the interview coordinator.

The coordinator would then assign the weights and fill out the scoring to get a total score.

Again, this is an example form. It needs to be adapted to the specifics of the position and the company.
