Final interview for a new position, currently at an ultra toxic firm I need to quit desperately. I have no desire to move, but this new position is 2 hours away and may want me to when they return to in person in June. Any advice on how to delicately ask to WFH permanently if I get the job? Do I wait until (if) I get an offer?

What about suggesting that you go in 1-2 x's a week, and then if they feel there are no issues with your work that you can come in more sporadically? But, keep in mind that may turn them off if having somone be physically in office is important to them.

I appreciate the advice! I’m not sure I could swing that as a commute, since it’s in another city sadly. Just wondering if anyone had negotiated something similar!

This depends on how important WFH is for whether you'd take the job or not, but consider bringing it up even before you get the offer. Waiting until you get the offer could come across as sandbagging.

Hey Fishes,

Recently got an offer from PharmEasy for the Data Analyst role with a 30 % hike from current salary at Deloitte, where CTC is 8.1 LPA
But will have to pay in the training cost along with the joining bonus which comes up to 2.4 lac. Really confused what to do as I've been on bench for 3 months now with no learning opportunity and don't know what kind of projects I might get ahead and what about the wlb as compared to PharmEasy.
Some insights will be much appreciated :)
