Job Interview Do’s and Don’ts
Posted by:admin, September - 19 - 2017

Applying for a new position can be a stressful process. Making sure your resume is just right for the job you seek. Learning about new companies, new opportunities and uprooting yourself from a place and job that you are familiar with to something totally new. You have worked hard to get the interview, so the pressure is now on. We have compiled a list of do and don’t questions that you should and should not ask your interviewer; assuming that you have done your research on the company.

Questions to Ask

  1. How would you describe the general culture of the company and the workplace?
  2. What is the standard process for training new hires?
  3. Who will be my direct supervisor?
  4. What are some of the biggest challenges/successes in this role currently?
  5. What process will be used to evaluate my employee performance?
  6. Are there many opportunities for professional development within the company?
  7. What is the usual time frame for making the hiring decision?
  8. Do you see any reason I might not be a good fit for this position?
  9. May I contact you if any further questions arise?

Questions to Avoid Asking

  1. Any question that a quick internet search can answer
  2. Never ask about the salary on the first interview.
  3. Never ask if you can change the job details, the schedule.
  4. Never ask about pay, time off, benefits, etc. (Wait until later in the process to inquire about these things.)
  5. Never ask “What does your company do?”
  6. Never ask “If I’m hired, when can I start applying for other positions in the company?”
  7. Never ask how quickly you can be promoted.
  8. Never ask “Do you do background checks?”
