Job interview pro tip: when the interviewer asks if you have any questions, ask what the company's five-year plan is. Where does the company want to be in five years?

The answer will tell you a *lot* about whether you want to work there.

@noelle This is *hella* smart. Thank you for the tip!


Incidentally, I always fantasize about answering “Where do you see yourself in five years?” with “Frantically trying to hide your corpse before the cops show up.” 😜

@noelle i always ask what the one thing is the interviewer wished they knew about the company before they started. it’s yielded an impressive array of insightful answers.

Usually one answer "restructuring for investors profit margins"

@noelle i also like to ask what the turnover rate is like. It will also give you some insight about the health of the working environment.
