I was inspired to write this blog post after I received a message the other day from someone who received a job offer from one of the work from home jobs I posted on social media.
And what he wanted to know were things only an employer or hiring manager could answer. So I decided to share this with you too, just in case these are the same things you want to know before accepting a job offer.
When you’re interviewing for a job either in person or remotely, you’re focused on acing the interview and making a great impression. Then it hits you. You forgot to ask the interviewer about things like vacation time.
It happens to a lot of us.
Keep on reading for a reminder about the questions YOU should ask during your job interview.
Questions To Ask During A Job Interview
After your interview, you will almost always be asked if you have any questions. These are the top four questions you should ask during a job interview.
How To Accumulate PTO, Sick Days And Vacation Days
Some folks feel this isn’t an appropriate question to ask. The truth is, employers know you have a life outside work and special days and events is a part of our lives so planning is important.
Every company has their own rules for paid time off, sick day pay and vacation days. Some PTO kicks in 30 days after employment, some 60 days and some 90 days. So go ahead and ask away!
Ask About Opportunities For Advancement During Your Job Interview
If you’re interested in growing with the company you are about to work for, express your interest and ask about advancement opportunities during your job interview.
Percent Matched For 401K
A lot of folks think about the day we can retire and not have to worry about the hustle and bustle of working. We all have to plan for retirement. If your job offer includes a 401K, ask about their match program.
Tuition Reimbursement or Tuition Assistance
If continuing your education is a goal for you ask the interviewer about their Tuition Reimbursement or Assistance program if they offer one.
