Prospective Employer Questions - Array Resources


Are you preparing for a big job interview? Not only is it important to be ready to answer whatever questions you get asked but it is also crucial that you seem prepared with a list of questions yourself. Review these questions we have compiled to get some inspiration on what you would want to know about the job position you’re interviewing for.

  • What are the most important aspects of this job? How will I contribute to the organization’s goals?
  • What programs will I be using?
  • Training and professional development is important to me. What is the company policy on seminars, workshops, and training for employees to maintain and improve their skills?
  • How did this position come to be open? What were the strengths and weaknesses of the last person who held this role? How long did they hold the role?

Company Focused

  • What drives the organization?
  • What are the common attributes of your top performers?
  • What do you see ahead for the company in the next five years?
  • How do you rate the competition? What are threats facing the corporation?

  • How would you describe corporate culture? What are the core values?
  • What makes a good employee? How do people work together here?

Management Focused

  • What can you tell me about who I report to? Will I work for more than one person? How would you describe his/her management style?
  • What is your strategy for empowering employees?

Challenge Questions

  • How are candidates evaluated and what is the measure of success?

Always close the interview with a thank you, what are next steps and always ask for the job! This is not the same as asking if you got the job.  You can’t turn down a job offer you don’t get. Need more information on interview questions? Check out our other post about questions NOT to ask
