Questions During Interviews

Questions you may wish to ask your interviewer during an interview:

  • Is this a new position or a replacement. If this is a replacement why did the position become available? Find out what happened to the last person in the job and how many others have had the same job – the tip-off lies in the turnover rate – you don’t want to be next on the list.
  • For whom will I be working?
  • Is there a training program, orientation program?
  • What qualities in a person (technical and non-technical) makes for success in this position?
  • What character traits are you looking for?
  • What are the prospects of promotion or advancements? How would I be evaluated?
