Published: 04 May 2017


"What's your maternity leave policy?"

"I'd really like to ask about the gender split within the team - especially at senior level - but I can't really, can I?"


"How valued do the staff feel?"

"What are staff turnover levels like?"


"How do I get YOUR job?"


"Have any members of your team requested reduced hours, and were their requests successful?"

"How many days a week would I be allowed to work from home?"


"Are employees expected to pay for their own Christmas party?"

"So, what's the office banter like?"


"Why is the position vacant?" 

"Why should I work for you?"



"Do your employees like you?"

"Are you always going to be as nice as you're coming across right now?"


"I know someone who got a job and ended up working in a really small, dark room with no one else on the same floor. So, last time I had an interview, I asked if I could see where I'd be working."
