  • What are things that I should ask my interviewers?

    Posted by pranavsapre on March 8, 2021 at 12:03 pm

    When I go to interviews and they ask me, “Any question?”. I am pretty much bamboozled there and don’t know what to ask. Suggestions pls.

    Every single interview I’m asked “Do you have any questions for me?”

    The first thing I ask is “Yes, but my question is for you personally. How do you like working for the company?”

    You’d be surprised about how much a recruiter will open up about the company and their experiences. They will usually give honest ups and downs, usually tinted a bit for the better since they work there still of course.

    Agree, i would usually ask the interviewer, how long has he/she been working with the company, and what he enjoys about his work.

    Another is how does a normal day in the office is gonna be like, this are two questions which I would like to know to give me a preview of the work environment that I might face in the future, should they hire me.

    Definitely ask about the projects, leaves and salary process.

    Asking questions of the interviewer shows that you’re interested in them as a person—and that’s a great way to build rapport.

    • How long have you been with the company?
    • Has your role changed since you’ve been here?
    • What did you do before this?
    • Why did you come to this company?
    • What’s your favorite part about working here?

    What do you expect from team members in this position?

    Job descriptions often are nothing more than marketing jargon used to peak interest in a position, and sometimes the intricate requirements are neglected. Asking this question in an interview helps you determine what you’re going to be doing and what is expected of you. Best of luck!!

    Do ask them, “What is a typical day like at [company name]?” Asking about operations and learning the “lay of the land” shows your dedication to the company and attention to detail. Hiring managers often will start by explaining basic schedules, events, and projects.

    Don’t expect — or push for — detailed explanations about clients and projects. They still have to protect intellectual property. Focus more on the company’s atmosphere and the people.

    Ask about newsletters, company picnics, and other initiatives meant to bring the company together. Executives love to brag about their connection with the team, so they should be happy to answer this question.

    One more thing, “Where do you see the company in five years?”. This question serves two purposes. First, we all want stability, and the hiring manager’s answer will serve to tell you just how stable the company is.

    Best question to ask during an interview:

    1. What are the company’s key priority over the next 5 years?

    2. Can you tell me about the team and the manager I’ll be working with?

    3. Is this role newly added to the company’s portfolio?
