I've interviewed a lot of people and I have never been impressed by a question asked by a candidate. At the same time, there's been quite a few candidates that I was really impressed by, it just had absolutely nothing to do with a question they asked.

Can I come in at 10am to miss the traffic?

Questions aren't meant to impress your interviewer...they are to demonstrate that you are familiar with the company and to get your questions answered (shocker). If you actually do your research about the company like you should be doing, you will naturally find a handful of questions to ask that will be good.

Would you suggest any books that would help me better perform this role?

TA1 clearly Oprah, wife then Barbara.

Waiting for official offer document is stressful. Interviews done. Negotiation done. Verbal offer received. Just filled out app/reference/background documents. Official offer letter is going through legal review. Working honestly on my current project, while trying to time exit is not fun. I'm trying to not sign up for more work because it will feel like a broken promise to my teammates whom I like. Plus, I wonder a little if the official offer letter will have anything outrageous in it.

If a recruiter slides into your LinkedIn DMs with a job opportunity, is it appropriate to ask what the salary range might be in my reply? I wouldn’t want to waste their time or mine by interviewing unless I had reason to believe the salary may be higher than my current position, so wondering if cutting to the chase is reasonable, or frowned upon.

Recruiter from Amazon reached out to me for an L6 role. After the telephonic screening they are saying they will consider for same work type but L5. She also said if I really perform over and above in onsite interviews I may once again be considered for L6. Is this true? If so, what differently should I do?

I feel like I just botched the case study in the last round of interviewing. They said it wasn’t “pass or fail” but definitely felt like a fail. I’d been transparent about my skills, but I still got to the last round.
