Narendra’s Answer

Asking the hiring manager questions is like bringing flowers and chocolates with you. Not only are you getting more information about the job, you’re showing the interviewer that you genuinely care about the position, the company, and your role should you get hired.
1. "Can you tell me exactly what I would be expected to do if I were hired for this position? "
2. "Can you walk me through a typical day here at Company X?"
3. "If I were hired for this position, would I be going through any training prior to actually starting the work?"
4. "How will I be trained?"
5. "What are the performance expectations for this position? Will that expectation change the longer I am doing the job?"
6. "Is there an employee performance review process? How often does that occur and can you walk me through a typical one?"
7. "Where do you see the company in five years? 10?"
8. "Can you tell me what the career paths are for this department and what sort of advancements I could work towards?"
9. "Will I be working with a team and if I am, can you tell me a little about each of them?"
10. "Can you tell me about my direct supervisor? Is there anything I should know about working with them that will make my integration a smooth process?"
14. "Is there anything else I can provide you with that would be helpful or questions I can answer?"

Hi Abby,

It's always a good idea to have a question or two prepared for when the interviewer asks "Do you have any questions for us?" Here are a few of my favourite questions to ask (and ones I like being asked):

  1. What would a typical day look like in this role?
  2. What do you think will be the biggest challenge for the person hired into this role?
  3. What do you like most working for this organization?
  4. What advice would you give to someone starting in this role?

Good luck!

Lisa recommends the following next steps:

Make sure you do your research about the company before the interview!

Here are the best hr question for fresher:


Indeed, I was feeling depleted following years of constant work. That is why I chose to take a break and invest some time with my near and dear ones on a rejuvenating break. I am glad to have returned completely revived.


I am of the opinion that an ideal compensation for any position perceives the skills, acknowledges the performance and gives the employee a chance to enjoy his hobbies and interests. I am certain that this organization additionally takes care of these.

This one is amongst the most popular HR questions and answers.


This, in all probability happens to be the first question that is asked, and you can expect amid any interview you confront. This is a question to initiate a dialogue and set the ball rolling for the interview. You can reply to this question by giving some information regarding your work experience, technologies you have experience in, academic qualifications and so on. On the off chance that you are a fresh graduate, you can give some information about your family moreover.

Terence’s Answer

Your questions should be relevant to the audience you're speaking with. For example, if you're speaking with a recruiter, you wouldn't expect much detail on day to day experiences in the job. Conversely, a peer or teammate may not have deep details on benefits or corporate structure. Someone from an adjacent team may have a good perspective on what the team/role you're interviewing for is like to deal with. The hiring manager would have specifics on what they're looking for, what they expect in a candidate the first few months (30/60/90 days), and what's a successful team member looks like.

The key point is to think about a few questions for each of these potential scenarios, tailor them to the person you're speaking with and take those insights into consideration. You can even bring the insights and answers up in subsequent interviews.

Consider these for the different interviewers you may meet with:

Terence recommends the following next steps:

Recruiter - this is your contact for questions around the company, the benefits, compensation, performance/rewards cycles
Peer or roles slightly more senior - perspectives on the job itself, like questions on what the day to day job, what areas they find challenging
Adjacent team member - their views on working with the team you're interviewing for, what they they think could be better
Hiring manager - this is where you can learn the most about the role, the team and prospects going forward

Make sure you do your research on the company you are interviewing with. Being able to talk to the company about what they are doing will show that you are really interested and have put some work in before the interview.

Rachel’s Answer

Thats a great question! I currently work as a Campus Recruiter for a tech company.

Here are some suggestions:

- What does success look like in the role?
- What are the greatest challenges in the role?
- What do you like about the company?

The best questions are actually ones which are somewhat tied in to the content of the interview. Eg if the interviewer mentioned a specific topic, you can ask about that in the follow up question to show that you were listening and are interested.

Hope that helps!

Hi Abby, depending on what type of a job interview you will be going to-the questions will vary. I will write down few and then you can trick them depending on the role.

1) what would be day to day responsibilities and what would they look like?

2) What are the company values and what is the mission that employers are driving every day?

3) what does success looks like in this role?

4) what are you expectations during the first 30-90 days for the new hire?

5) what challenges have the company faced during this year and how did it overcome it?

6) how long you have been with the company and what inspires you to continue to be with this company?

7) what is the career path within the company?

8) who will I be working with most closely?

9) how does the company recognizes its associates?

hope this would help

Christine’s Answer

It is most important not to ask a question that has been covered during the interview. So it is always safe to ask what you can d next to further your application.. it is also always good to compliment the interviewer for their thoroughness and then ask. If you are nervous it if you cannot think of a question day something like-
You have Ben very helpful and I do not have a question right now but. Can I have your card so I can contact you .(This gives you the correct spelling of his/her name for your Thank you note.
Some times you can run into someone in a rush or not part of the usual interview process. Then it is perfectly acceptable to ask for the information you need. (In general salary is not discussed during the first interview)
Good Luck!!
