Important Questions to Ask in a Job Interview

Need Help Finding a Job?

Awesome, you’ve scored an interview and now you’re at the point where you’re asked if you have any questions for the interviewer. During your interview, you’ve been asked a ton of questions to see if you’d be a good fit for the company. Do the same and make sure that this company is a good fit for you before accepting a job. Definitely ask questions, just be sure to ask the appropriate ones. Here is our list of the right (and wrong) things to ask the interviewer.

 

Good Questions - There are a ton of good questions, and just about everything is fair game. This is the time to ask about traffic conditions, if you’re unfamiliar with that part of town. Ask questions that reflect your genuine interest in the work being done, or the industry for which you’re interviewing for. People will want to know that they’ve selected the right person for this job.

 

-What is the traffic like in the morning?

-What is the office environment like?

-Do co workers fraternize or eat lunch together?

-What is the interviewers favorite aspect of the company? Least favorite?

 

Knowing that you’re a good fit, or not a good fit, can save so much time and money for both the employer and employee.

 

Bad Questions - The worst questions are the ones that aren’t asked. This shows that you’re not very interested or haven’t thought about this enough.

 

-When are raises given?

-I heard about Company’s issue with X, what do you think about that?

-What’s the address (There’s a reason why the term “Google it” exists)
