Q: Should I ask about compensation and benefits at an interview? What other questions should I ask? – Scotia, NY
A: Benefits yes, compensation, maybe not. A good way to get an idea of how a company will take care of you is to ask “If I am brought on board, what kind of health and fringe benefits do you offer?” This can help you find out what your company offers you without being too pushy.
A good question to ask someone interviewing you is “How long have you been with the company, and what has influenced you to work here?” This helps the company see if you are interested in the long haul, and can develop an instant rapport amongst your potential peers.
