Signs you should turn down a job offer

  • A long decision-making process signals leadership or other internal issues
  • Find out why the position is open and for how long.
  • It’s important that your interviewers are on the same page about the role and the company culture.
  • If your job can be done remotely and the company requires you to be in the office full time may be the sign of an inflexible culture.
  • Unengaged interviews may indicate that the interviewer isn’t committed to finding the right person or can reflect poor management style as well as culture.
  • Lack of diversity.
  • If the employer hasn’t shown you that there are opportunities to grow with the company, you may want to think twice about accepting the job.
  • If you receive a job offer and are being pressured to accept it on the spot or within an extremely tight time frame, say 24 hours, be wary.
