Is 'interviewees' a word?

If it is not a word, then what do you call those people who are interviewed?

For instance, there are two people in the interview. One asking the questions and the other one answering them. Is there a word you would use to call the person answering the questions?

Similar to when you are in a job. There would be an employer and an employee. lol I think that was were I got the word 'interviewees'. Anyway, is it a word? If not, what do you call it?

Thank you

    Interviewees is most definitely a word.

    I think it is one of the only words that will properly fit your definition of "the person answering the questions [in an interview]".

    Hope I helped.

    Yes

    - interviewee (singular)

    - interviewees (plural)

    Also, the person conducting the interview is the interviewer.

    Not if you are really interested in the job. Reach out and shake their hand firmly and say "and to you". Then ask: would you prefer to follow up with me by the end of the week or the beginning of next week?
