I interviewed for a mid market role selling into pub sec and they came back with an offer for a different team as an Enterprise Software AE. So, I never really got to talk to the person that I'll be reporting to and ask questions.

What questions would you ask the hiring manager to assess the opportunity?

Close rate for anyone else that may have that title, expected ramp time, if those deals have a different average process length to the previous role, base/commission structure (if different from previous role), and if they have any additional requirements that may not overlap for that previous position you interviewed for

Find out about the top end of the funnel, biggest challenges to conversion at the bottom end, try to ask questions about the value proposition from the client perspective, 3M/6M expectations of HM, development opportunities when you succeed in role(what comes after this?) etc.

These are great questions. Thank you for sharing this.

Ask the hiring manager to describe their perfect salesperson. Then explain how you are that person. In the process, describe how you are going to exceed the goal ("hit my goal by mid-year"). Once you're satisfied that she/he is interested and open to offering you the AE job, ask what good things will happen to you if you accomplish that (club, comp, trained for management gig, et cetera).

Thanks, I've already received the offer. I just know nothing about this specific team, module, geography, etc.

Hmm. What is the possible timeframe for a promotion? What other career opportunities are there?
