WHAT Questions To Ask At Interview

To Find Out About The Company

To find out about the Company, ask open-ended questions which encourage the employer to talk. For example:

  • "What is XYZ's Vision?"
  • "What is XYZ's five year plan?"
  • "How would you describe XYZ's ethos/culture?"

And if you ask a few personal questions of the interviewers it adds a nice touch. It demonstrates that you see your interviewers as people, not just interviewers. So ask them questions as an employee such as: "How long have you worked with XYZ?" and "What's the best thing about working here?"

To Find Out About The Role

Good questions to ask at interview are any about the job which increase your understanding of what's required of you. For example:

  • "How will I be appraised?"
  • "What individual and team targets are in place?"
  • "How much teamwork will there be and how much work on my own?"

Questions about your career development can help you decide if this is the right job for you, long term.

  • "Can you tell me about the opportunities for learning and development?"
  • "What progression or promotion opportunities are likely to arise?"

Good interview questions to ask include those about the Company leadership. The answers you are given will help you decide if the company's management style is right for the way you work.

  • "What can you tell me about my line manager, should I be successful?"
  • "How would you describe the management/leadership style within your team?"

And finally there are good interview questions to ask to find out how the interviewers perceive you.
