Interview Questions to Ask

Sample interview questions to ask are linked below, along with tips about why, how and when to ask them. Tips on how to construct questions for interviews are included. Interviewers expect you to have questions to show that you've done your homework and are truly interested in working for their companies.

It's okay to ask for clarification and such as you go along. It's also a good idea to ask something like "What are you looking for in the ideal candidate?" early on, to steer you in the right direction.

But wait until the interview asks if you have questions before you fire off one after the other. If the interviewer fails to ask, then near the end of your interview, ask if you may ask questions.

Either way, it's not a good idea to frivolously ask interview questions just to have some to ask. If you don't have any, then thank the interviewer for doing a thorough job of answering your questions during the interview, so it doesn't appear that you didn't prepare.

It's also not a good idea to ask interview questions about money, vacation, sick days, lunch breaks and so on, right off the bat. While they are part of the whole employment picture, it's more important to first sell what you can do for the company, and then ask what the company can do for you. (But, natch, don't put it that way.)

Get the job in your pocket, negotiate salary and ask interview questions about important benefits, such as health insurance and 401(K) accounts. Then ask about the lesser matters of importance. Typically, the most appropriate time to negotiate salary and ask interview questions about benefits, is toward the end of the second or third interview.

Avoid asking interview questions that might indicate negatives about you, such as "What happens if I'm late for work a lot?" Remember, interviewers might be more impressed with your questions than your answers.
