When preparing for a job interview, it’s best to prepare a few questions to ask your potential employer. Having prepared questions will show your interviewer that you spent time beforehand to make a good impression, and that you are interested in the position and their company. Whether the position is administrative or a skilled trade, asking questions is a smart way to find out more about the position. Here are a few examples of questions to ask in a face-to-face job interview:
How will my performance be measured?
Asking how performance is measured can give you a good insight into the processes of the company, especially how they measure the success of their employees. A company with a structured way of measuring their employee’s performance cares about their success.
How is work assigned?
Asking how work is assigned will allow you to get a deeper understanding of the work the company actually does, and how you will fit into the already existing structure.
What is my supervisor’s management style?
To ensure that you choose a position that you know you will succeed at and enjoy, it’s smart to know beforehand what your supervisor’s management style is like. If your supervisor is a micromanager, but you prefer to work independently, it may not be a good match.
Who will be my direct supervisor?
If you are not being interviewed by the person who will be your direct supervisor, you may ask who that will be. You can then research him, his accomplishments, and his duties in order to be better prepared if you do meet him.
What will the first few weeks look like?
This question will allow the interviewer to explain if there is any kind of onboarding or training for new employees, and what you can expect as you jump into the new position.
