Questions For Your Screener

Have an introduction and a concise story to tell about your work history. Stack questions are mostly inappropriate here but you can ask the following:

  1. What is the hiring process? Be suspicious if they are asking for too much in one of the steps.
  2. Tell me about the tech team. Find more about the company’s hierarchies and the people who compose them.

Asking Questions On The Technical Interview

Prepare well for this. At the end of the meeting, they should ask if you have questions and you can ask as many as you need to help you decide to work there or not. You can use that to build rapport if the interview was a little off.

  1. Screening call or on-site interview: lengthy when done by HR and short when it’s someone technical, also not a good time to fire all your questions.
  2. Technical interview: where your knowledge is assessed by professionals of the field.
  3. Technical assessment, homework or pair programming: a practical test of your skills.
  4. Final interview: meeting the rest of the team or company leaders.
  5. Offer.

1) How have you approached building professional relationships while working remotely?

Here’s a few ideas on how to address this question in a thoughtful way:

Gettingto know a new person can be so tough without ever getting the chance to meet in person, so if I get the opportunity to get to know your staff, I plan to do my best to take every opportunity to share my perspective, my story and my experience. I hope this will allow me to introduce myself in a way that doesn't put too much of a burden on my future colleagues, especially while we're all navigating remote work.”
