Employment Green Card interviews are relatively new as the Trump administration made in person interviews a requirement in 2017. Before 2017, Green Card employment interviews were not required as the applicant would receive the Green Card in the mail.
During your employment Green Card interview, the USCIS adjudications officer will want to learn about you and your history in the United States. But the primary focus will be on your work history. USCIS officers usually start with basic biographical questions based on your adjustment of status petition.
The officer will attempt to verify basic background information you already provided in your application documents, such as your Form I-140 and Form I-485. These questions could include:
Your spouse and children can be interviewed by the adjudications officer. In general, they will need to provide basic identification documents. Children under 14-years old are rarely asked any questions.
When it comes to your spouse, the officer will focus on the legality and authenticity of your marriage.

The adjudication officer can ask a wide range of questions during an employment-based Green Card interview.
