In the process of interviewing with several different firms. What should I be looking for that recruiters don’t say and doesn’t come up in interviews? For example, my current firm routinely has extremely long hold times for customer service so I’ll call their customer service lines to see how they compare.

In the interview ask the hiring manager what they like most about their job and note if they sound enthusiastic when they answer. I had a panel reveal that the company had high turnover just from asking that question. Also as what they want you to accomplish in the first 6 months and what success looks like in the position

My current company poached me for a position that I went through a rigorous interview process After waiting an extended period of time I was provided an offer letter. Upon receiving the offer letter the salary was a lot lower than expected. It’s about 7% more than I make now. My original offer letter (when I started with the company a 1.5 years ago) advised I had a “potential” 20% bonus of my yearly salary. I was expecting at least 15% increases. How do I go about countering this offer?

Hey Fishes, I have a question. I am applying in a bank and in the application they’re asking that “Have you ever been employed by KPMG?” And I did join KPMG but on my very first day I resigned didn’t even attend the induction so what should I do should I disclose this info and select as Yes or I just select No as I joined but didn’t work there. So what’s your thoughts?
