Study reveals the questions interviewees really want to ask employers during interviews
Many job seekers find it scary to voice their opinions or to ask certain questions during a job interview.
To learn more about the interview topics interviewers really want to talk about and also the topics hiring managers most want to discuss, JobSage surveyed 700 full-time employees and 300 hiring managers.
- 7 in 10 prospective employees report keeping important questions to themselves during job interviews.
- The questions interviewees want to ask the most: 1. How many hours are we expected to work per week? 2. Are employees expected to be available on weekends/after hours? 3. Does the workload prevent employees from taking PTO?
- The questions hiring managers want you to ask: 1. Is there a formal training process? 2. Does the company invest in upskilling employees? 3. Are promotions merit-based and fair?
- The questions hiring managers want you to avoid: 1. Is anyone in the organization a jerk? 2. Does the company have a lot of unnecessary meetings? 3. Is anyone in the organization inappropriately flirtatious?
