Today is Friday, July 17, 2015. I am in the middle of an actual interview process for a real role, that is over 200 miles away, I believe I need to know the kinds of hours this companies' employees are expected to work.
I know Mark says "give me back my wheel" ...
- I have a job in the city where I live
- This company has approached me
- I have succeeded in two separate phone interviews already (thanks in large part to the MT Interview Series)
- I have a phone interview with the hiring manager next week (where I will most definitely NOT ask a question about hours)
- If that goes well, I will be invited for a site visit.
Prior to the site visit, if I am invited, I think it is a good idea to know standard work hours. As MT says, Questions are for us to assess a company to know if it is a good place for us to work, so I think asking how many hours are expected of an employee is a reasonable question. If it is a shop where work flexes, averaging 40 to 50 hours per week, of if the culture is Silicon Valley esque, regularly expecting 60 to 80 hours per week.
I would like to ask the company recruiter after the manager interview and prior to the site visit.
Any advice would greatly be appreciated.
