Sample Questions to Ask at the End of an Interview

It’s the familiar scenario that almost every job seeker on the face of the earth has faced on multiple occasions. You get through the interview without making any ridiculous mistakes, only then to draw complete blank when presented with a standard sign off – “do you have any questions for us?”

The simple fact of the matter is that if you ask anyone in the recruitment business, they will most likely tell you that this is indeed a highly important element of the interview. The reason being that this represents your chance to prove to them that you have not just prepared for the interview, but have demonstrated a real interest in the business and the position.

Asking the right questions at the end of an interview really can help build a positive impression – it’s simply a case of making sure that you have a few sensible questions to ask.

1 – Initial Training

One example of a thoughtful question to ask is that of what to expect during the initial training period and how long it will be before you can get to work at full capacity. You might also wish to ask what kinds of challenges are common during the initial weeks and months of employment in this particular capacity.

2 – On-going Training and Development

Along with mandatory initial training, there are a great many businesses and organisations that also give employees the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of optional training and development programs on an on- going basis. It is therefore a good idea to ask about such opportunities at the end of your interview, as this will both provide you with important information and demonstrate the fact that you are committed and ambitious.

3 – Career Progression

It may seem like a little early on in the process to be asking about promotion, but to demonstrate interest in career progression shows the employer that you are both ambitious and intend to stick around with the company long-term. It isn’t a case of giving the impression that you realistically expect to be promoted immediately, but rather one of communicating your enthusiasm and dedication.

4 – Ask About Them

Another great way of demonstrating interest in the company is to ask a couple of questions about the general workplace culture and what it is like to work with this particular brand. It is a case of somewhat turning the interview around and asking the recruiters what it is they personally like best about working for this particular company and why they chose this company to work within the first place.

5 – Performance Measurement

Last but not least, you could also consider asking your prospective employers how they deal with employee performance measurement and management. Roughly translated, what metrics do they use for gauging employee performance and what is their approach to performance reviews, appraisals and so on. This can be a great way of demonstrating the fact that you are committed to self-improvement and are the type of person who responds well to constructive criticism.
