I recently interviewed for an internal position. I think I did well but I have concerns about the position. The hiring manager (to whom I would be reporting) seemed over-worked and even fatalistic. We ran out of interview time and I left with a lot of questions that I would need answered before I could feel confident of success.
My question is: Should I wait to see if I am offered the position and then ask for another meeting to ask these questions? Or should I reach out before then to ask the hiring manager at least some of my more pressing questions?
I also did not meet with the manager's manager, which surprised me. I feel like I need to meet with him also to get a flavor of the culture.
BTW - one of the people who interviewed me was clearly a top-quality manager who made me feel very at ease while still conducting a focused, effective interview. He is not directly related to the department but my guess is that he was asked to help out with the intervews because he is so good. If I am offered the position I feel like I would want to talk with him to get his honest take on what it would take to be successful in that postion. (I interviewed with him before the hiring manager or else I probably would have asked him that question.) What do you all think of that idea?
