Best Answer

For someone un-skilled in legal procedure, they may refer to it as being interviewed, but they are not "interviewed" before being chosen, or rejected, for jury duty.

The potential jurors go through a process known as as voir dire before being selected for a jury. The potential jurors are asked questions by the attorneys representing both sides to be sure that they don't have any prejudices or knowledge and can be fair and impartial.
