Who will I work with?
I got interviewed for a bunch of roles in the past years, but not recently. I think the last time was around two years ago.
My preferred part is always when the interviewer asks “any questions for me?”. I am not very interested in the vacation policy or the allowance for hardware.
I have a bunch of ready questions like:
- what’s the pace like?
- which other company would you join? (pure curiosity)
My preferred is “who will I work with?”. Nobody has been able to clearly answer it in my case. Some replies I got were:
- we don’t know yet
- with somebody on team A, or maybe team B. We’ll see
- everybody in the company
I know it’s an unusual question but the answer is very important to me.
I know I’ll have to squash bugs. I know I’ll have to deal with deadlines. I know there’ll be misunderstandings.
I’d like to know who my companion(s) will be when I have to deal with my day-to-day duties.
And you? What do you usually ask an interviewer?
