    What is the working hour? (if they didn’t tell me already)
    How is it paid for working over time?
    Why are you looking for someone for this position? (did the former employer left? Or is it because of the increased selling?)

      That’s such a good final question! I’d never even thought to ask about why they’re filling the position, could really tell you a lot about the company!

  • manisha

    i would ask what qualities are you looking for that fits the position?

  • Cheryl

    Number 2 seems so obvious yet i have never actually asked it in an interview!! Definitely will next time! I always ask why the interviewer works for the company/what they love about the company – I have gotten some interesting answers! You can always tell if they smile when you ask that question, you are on to a good thing!

    I really, really like the “How does this company evaluate success?” question. In my current job, I feel like I still don’t know the answer to it after almost 2 years of being employed there.

    I will definitely be asking this question at any upcoming job interview I may have!

  • Janet

    My son asks: “What can I bring to this position that will make you glad you hired me?” or What’s the one thing you are hoping to see in the person you hire?”

  • Elizabeth

    These are really helpful! Often after interviews I cant think of any questions but reading these, I would actually want to know the answer to every one of these!

    I always like to ask whether the company offers its employees health/dental benefits or not. Unless the salary they’re offering is sky-high, I would never consider working for a company that doesn’t offer a benefits package.

  • Pinch of Black

    really helpful! thx!


  • Melissa

    I’m looking for a job right now and having this list handy will definitely be a big help. You’re right, everything just leaves your mind once your in there and they ask you if you have any questions. I particularly like – “what is a typical day on the job like?” I’m going to try to cement that into my brain right now.

  • Richard Lock

    Some great question Lois. There is often an uncomfortable pause from candidates when they are asked if they have any questions. It’s important to avoid trying to impress with your question and better to focus on something you genuinely want to understand.
    I think #3 is a bit risky as a good interviewer will have been asking you to talk about about these very things. It may seem a bit late in the day to be asking this.
    #5 could make the interviewer feel uncomfortable ( not good if you want the job) as it is asking for direct feedback. I would soften it to ‘what would stop me being successful in the role?’
    A couple of other possibilities would be ‘How would you describe the culture of the company?’ and ‘How do existing employees describe working here?’

  • Nancy

    As someone who interviews job candidates, I would say that these are actually good questions to ask.


  • Talisa
