An exit interview is an interview conducted by an employer of a departing employee.
The purpose of an exit interview is to gather employees' feedback on the work
experience in order to improve working conditions and employee retention. Other
employer uses for exit interviews include improving work productivity, providing an early
warning about sexual harassment, workplace violence and discrimination issues, and
measuring the success of diversity initiatives or training programs. This document
provides common questions including reasons for leaving and job satisfaction, but this
form can easily be customized to add or alter any questions an employer would like to
ask a departing employee.
