The interviewing process gives valuable insight

When job seekers apply for a position, they often have to jump through more hoops to prove themselves than in the past. Many companies demand drawn-out and multiple steps in the interview process that seem like a job in itself.

How a company treats you during the interview process is a good indicator of the company culture. Asking yourself some questions can give you valuable insight into the company.

Questions you may be nervous to ask in an interview

fastcompany.com

  • Does the company value your time? Recruiters may prioritise their own time and have no care for your time.
  • Are their expectations reasonable? If the application feels like a second job, the companies' expectations may be over the top.
  • What do they do with your ideas? Instead of feeding a company your valuable ideas for free, a better solution may be to solve a previously solved problem or critique an existing solution.
  • How clear is their communication?

Interviews are a two-way street. Job assignments help you to assess the company as well.

  • Good companies clarify the steps of the interview process and the duration of each step. They offer salary ranges upfront.
  • Companies that need a lot of prep work up front while withholding job offers may have a bad reputation. Ensure to check social media and review sites to find out if this is a company technique.
  • If you can, choose a company with timely and transparent practices.
