Interview help

(4 Posts)

So...I have my second interview with the same company (yikes!) in a few days. Have been a sahm for the last 1.5 years, and this is a part time role, 3 days a week. Have done loads of preparation, but am struggling to come up with some good questions to ask them (I feel like I asked them everything already at the first interview!)

Any tips on some really good questions to ask? I don't need to ask loads, just a few really intelligent ones.

Am really terrified going back for a second for some reason. I must have done okay on the first one, but just keep thinking I'm going to make an arse of myself this time around. Help!

Hi, I had an interview recently and came up with a big list of questions, you may well have already asked most of these, but here's some things you could ask:
Can they describe the position in relation to the rest of the team/company?
Why is the position vacant? Is it a new role or one which has been made vacant by an employee, if it's the latter what has that person gone on to do?
What does the interviewer particularly like about working for the company?
How does the company structure work? Are there shareholders, if so, who?
What have been the real opportunities and challenges in the past year? What are the challenges and aims in the coming 12months?
Why did they call you back for an interview? (cheeky, but perhaps worth an ask!)
How many candidates are they seeing at this stage?
When can you expect to hear and can you request feedback whatever the outcome?

Good luck!
